What employers need to know about IR35

You’re in control

At Heat Recruitment you can influence your own career and how it progresses.


You will have clear performance targets that need to be achieved to unlock your next promotion. Alongside these targets, everyone is expected to uphold a set of behaviour standards that promote our company values. Our Learning and Development Director will put together a tailored development plan to help you achieve your promotion and become more skilled within your role.


You can see from the image there are multiple career paths available. Which path you choose is entirely up to you. During your time as a Senior or Principal Recruitment Consultant you will be exploring which role you would like to pursue. You will have the opportunity to shadow people within these positions and even take on some responsibilities to gain a better understanding of the different roles.




As you can see, whether you decide to become a Managing Consultant or Executive Consultant, both lead into Directorship positions.


Another option is to pursue a more candidate focused path where your role is to attract high calibre candidates for key clients and accounts. For all Delivery Consultants, there is a clearly mapped out career path.

Opportunity and Development

Training isn’t just for Trainees you will have the opportunity to work with our Learning and Development Director to strengthen your existing skillset. We invest in you and your future development, including our Future Leaders program aimed to ensure you are equipped with the skills to mentor and eventually manage teams (if you wish to go down that path)


Having a growth mindset is an integral part of enjoying a successful career at Heat.  Whilst you may have a track record in recruitment, everyone has the capacity to improve.  We aim to work with everyone to develop the soft skills that will not only support you in your role right now, but help you in life and whatever roles you take up in the future.


We operate under the simple principle, that better people make better recruiters.

Abbi Davies – Legal

“After starting with Heat last year fresh out of University I am so pleased to have achieved promotion to Senior Consultant, especially in such a strange year!


I am really lucky to be part of a great team and cannot thank my Manager and Team enough for the support and guidance they have given me since starting.


I thoroughly enjoy my work and cannot wait to hit the ground running with a fresh mind in January, helping more talented legal professionals join great law firms in the South East!”

David Dewy – Insurance

“It is a very proud moment for me to be promoted to Associate Director which is testament to both my hard work and those around me. Without the support of a great Insurance Team, my peers and the senior management team this would not have been possible so thank you to all. My journey at Heat Recruitment began in November 2012 and has been a challenging and rewarding ride from my first day. The business has evolved, and continues to evolve to ever changing markets and the world we live in so that we can provide the best support for both clients and candidates, adapting to their needs.”

Holly Dixon – Insurance

“Looking back 2.5 years ago, having no recruitment experience and no insurance knowledge to now being made senior is crazy to think about.


I have really enjoyed developing my knowledge within the industry and speaking to so many different people. Heat have given me so much support and I love working with my amazing and hilarious team which I think is a huge part of why I really enjoy my role.”




Sarah Beard – Legal

“I feel extremely proud to have achieved the promotion to Executive Consultant. Despite the challenges we’ve all faced with the impacts of COVID-19 in 2020, it’s been a fantastic year for both myself and the business as a whole. Tasked with building up our City of London & West End presence, I feel I’ve succeeded in significantly raising the profile of Heat into a new market vertical and my Managers and Directors have been incredibly supportive all the way through. I also want to send out a huge thanks to my incredibly loyal clients for all their support this year. Really looking forward to hopefully another great year in 2021”
