Join the Rutherford Crew


Welcome. You have just found a small recruitment business of 10 staff members at an important point of its journey.

That was lucky!

What does that mean for you, your development and your career?

A good recruiter always has options but right here, right now, we think what we have is pretty unique. You could decide to join the 1-5 people start-up. Will they make it though? How long will it take? And will you make any money in the meantime?

You could also join the 40-400 people mega-agency. But will you be a cog? Will you make a difference? Will you have a say or ever be part of senior management?

Rutherford has been a tiny business, but we are hitting our growth curve right now. This is an opportunity to be part of that adventure. Hard work is required, sure, but it will be career defining, fascinating, exciting and we guarantee that you will have a good time along the way.

We challenge each other and strive for excellence, but we also deeply care about our peers. We are trying to create a culture where everyone is enfranchised in the success of the firm.

So if you want to work with some of the most motivated and knowledgeable headhunters in New York and the United Kingdom who happen to also be good people, then get in touch.


​At Rutherford, we always put our people first. Our team players are our best resource and we wouldn't be here without the contribution of every single Rutherfordian. Our benefits have been designed to support our staff and to provide them a working environment centred on them and their personal goals.


​For more than 10 years, Rutherford has been known as the go-to specialist recruitment firm in the compliance and legal space. Our talented, motivated and - very! - fun team has been building trusted long-term relationships with some of the most renowned financial and professional services businesses in the UK and New York for over a decade.

Our success lies in a simple fact: we are passionate about people and helping them become the best version of their professional selves. And we believe in creating synergies by placing the right people at the right place and the right time.

Our business is now at an exciting and crucial stage in its development as we are ready to grow, then grow some more. We have ambitious plans for the future, and to fulfill our objectives we need the right players.

We need you!
