The Sterling Choice Is Recruiting

December 23, 2019
Lukas Vanterpool


Are you looking to kickstart your career in 2020?

Often likened to second-hand car salesmen, you might not have ever considered a career in recruitment. But you should, because although it requires resilience and determination, it can be incredibly rewarding, from both a professional and financial perspective. On top of that, it helps if you are employed by a business that will really look after you.

Hello, we are The Sterling Choice, nice to meet you.


In a trend that has continued since our inception in 2013, 2019 has been a fast-paced year at The Sterling Choice, and as we look ahead to 2020, there are no plans to slow down.

There are exciting strategies in place to continue to expand the business, including moving to a new office. To support this growth, we are looking for more talented individuals working in the business, alongside our incredible established team.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, we don’t always look to employ people that have come from a recruitment background. Some of our top performing employees have joined us from careers in telesales, real estate and hospitality.

In fact, Joe Wickison, who was recently promoted to Senior Recruitment Consultant, joined us in 2015 as an apprentice, from a role as a bartender.


“Starting off as an apprentice and working my way up to Senior Consultant has got to be a highlight for me. The training here has enabled me to go from bartender to recruiter over the last few years and I now enjoy looking after my own specific market within the business. Earning good money and having a laugh with your mates whilst you work makes life a lot easier.” – Joe


We are looking for highly-motivated individuals that strive to continually learn and expand their experience and skill-set. We believe in supporting our employees and have developed a comprehensive induction programme that lasts for six months. All employees have access to a recruitment ‘bible’ that we have invested heavily in.

Weekly one-to-one meetings are scheduled with all staff to ensure they feel confident, motivated and content in their roles.


“At The Sterling Choice, you are surrounded by people that only want to see you succeed but also push you to your top potential with great training and mentors.

I started here in July and did not come from a recruitment background nevertheless I was coached and fully trained on the industry and recruitment, you will be gifted all the tools possible to be successful in this crazy business here as well as earn great commission.” – Matthew


We believe that we have created an environment that is aligned with our ethos of ‘work hard/play hard’. State-of-the-art technology not only makes our consultants more comfortable, but also enables and empowers them in their roles.

Our contemporary breakout area features a built-in bar that serves as a hub for the team after a busy week, and a foosball table to take the competitive nature of the team to the next level.

A strong team culture is part of the fabric of our business. We spend more than 40 hours a week together, so it’s a real bonus to have built a team that actually enjoys spending time together.


“I enjoy working at The Sterling Choice because it’s the perfect mix of hard work and fun. We are an office full of ambitious people and that motivates me within my role. The commission structure is second to none and I have the opportunity to make serious money. I have been able to achieve many things in my personal life due to the opportunities provided by Lukas, Gareth and Richard” – Annaliese


We insist on regular team events, some of the venues that we have entertained our team at this year, includes the Duck and Waffle and German Gymnasium.

We are passionate about recognising and rewarding great work, regularly taking employees out for lunch and offering incentives such as all-expenses paid trips to destinations such as Las Vegas.


“I enjoy working here because there is a friendly and supportive culture which offers a genuine opportunity to progress and be financially comfortable. The training is second to none which puts you into a position where you can be considered a knowledgeable and well-rounded consultant within a relatively short period of time, even if specialising in an industry which you had no prior experience in. There is a great social life outside of the office and I look forward to seeing everyone every day.”Jordan


As well as an industry-leading base salary, we also offer our employees an impressive benefits package.

If you think that working with us, within the recruitment industry could be the move that is going to take your career to the next level, please contact us.

Lukas Vanterpool

I started The Sterling Choice with Gareth Whyatt back in August 2013. We’ve always remained true to ourselves and what it is we’re trying to achieve – A great company with great people and great results! This journey never stops, we are always finding ways to support our colleagues and make sure they leave every day feeling fulfilled.

Over the years I’ve always been asked “what’s your USP??, what makes you different from all the other agencies??”. That’s an easy one for me to answer – “Our culture makes our business and our people make our culture”
