  • Honesty
  • Success driven
  • Selfless not selfish
  • Hard working
  • Bravery and a curious mind


As a graduate/ trainee recruitment consultant you will be put on a tried and tested training programme and will work alongside one of the directors or associate directors from day one. We know how to train at tdm as 80% of the current team started as graduates/ trainees and a number of them our now the best in the industry at what they do.


We know how to give anyone the key skills and tools to become a good recruiter. What we look for is the ambition and drive to work hard and take responsibility for your own success.


What is tdm

We are on of the leading residential property recruitment consultancies in the UK. We have been in operation in 10 years and we have built up an eclectic team of passionate and success focused recruiters who want to be the best they can be.


Our client based reaches from national house builders, private equity backed start ups and national development consultancies. Clients use tdm because we get the job done and do it with little fuss. Recruitment isn’t complicated and the team at tdm pride themselves on their honesty and open approach.


We have gone from strength the strength in 2021 with record numbers and monthly and quarterly targets and records being regularly beaten.


We used to be a very traditional 8-6pm office based recruiter but covid has allowed us to explore a new and super exciting opportunity and we have fully embraced working from home/ anywhere. Most consultants spent 1-2 days a week in the office or meeting in London but there is absolutely no expectation for anyone to spend any time in the office at all.


We embrace and encourage unique thinking and want people to be their true self.

  • Cross referencing the research and candidate names on linkedin or other social media
  • Managing the input and flow of data and project information found on the research assignments.
  • Assisting the senior consultants on large complex assignments for senior directors. This maybe through name gathering, data input or candidate head hunting.
