Note To Recruiters

Note To Recruiters

First off, we are not anti-recruiter. Far from it. We are, however, keen to avoid getting bombarded with unnecessary calls. If you are good at your job, we would like to work with you... but to make both our lives a lot easier please take note of the below - it's everything you need to know about working with us.

  1. Under no circumstances are you to call us without prior arrangement. It doesn't matter who you know or how long you've known them, nor is it relevant who you've worked for in the past. Treat this as the golden rule.
  2. All positions are advertised on our Jobs page - you won't hear first about a position at Shutl any other way. If you want to keep up to date with our recruitment plans then you can also follow our Twitter and LinkedIn profiles.
  3. Only submit candidates via our Jobs page If you have a candidate that you believe to be appropriate for one of the roles we are advertising, please submit as a candidate would except use your email/phone instead of the candidate's. We need their name to determine if they have already applied for a role. If you are sending multiple candidates, you must do so one at a time. Submitting via the web is the only way of getting into our ATS.

Our promise to you:

  1. We will get in touch with you in the event that we are interested in your candidate. If you do not hear from us, please assume we are not interested in them. If we think you've done a good job understanding our requirement then we will endeavour to provide you with feedback on candidates that are not quite right.
  2. We pay top rates for the best candidates. Let us be the judge of whether candidate is out of our price range. They rarely are.
  3. We don't work on an exclusive or a retained basis. Please don't waste your time asking.
  4. We don't prejudice a candidate on the basis that they have come via a recruiter.


If we are interested in candidates that you submit, you will need to enter into Shutl’s recruiter terms. We will provide you with a copy of these terms if we enter into discussions with you. If you are unable to work with us to negotiate these terms then please don't submit candidates.

It may sound from the above that we are a pain to work with. We aren't. In all seriousness, we are probably the easiest client you will come across; we know what we want, make decisions quickly and are timely payers. If all clients were like us, think how low your phone bill would be!
