Why Join ECOM?

Pubished 7th November 2023

ECOM has been around for over 20 years. We were one of the first dedicated digital recruitment agencies, and we've continued to evolve with the ever-changing digital and technology market to become the business we are today.

So, why would you want to work for us?

Owning your career path:

It's your career, so you set your own goals and path. We will work with you to understand your aspirations and work together to make it happen. Whether you want a candidate-focused role, a 360 position, or account management, it's all possible. If you aim to become a Director without managing staff, that's fine. All options are open to motivated and hardworking individuals. If you want to change sectors or maybe move to New York, you'll have the chance to take your career where you want to.

Grown-up environment:

You are an adult and will be treated as one. Your role is your own, and while you'll receive support where needed, you'll have the autonomy to do things your way. We don't believe in micromanagement or heavy KPIs. We understand that everyone is different and needs a unique approach. Ultimately, results speak for themselves.


We understand the importance of being agile and flexible. Our consultants value the ability to work from home or adjust their hours when needed while enjoying a great office environment for learning from peers, collaborating on work, and socialising. We operate a hybrid working model and offer flexible working hours and locations, all based on communication and ensuring everyone feels part of the team.

Client Base:

We work with a large portfolio of well-known brands that people want to work for, including top e-commerce companies, exciting tech startups, larger corporations, and leading consultancies. This means you’ll be able to discuss great opportunities with your candidates.


We've built our database over the past 10 years, giving you access to top talent quickly. While you'll have LinkedIn Recruiter and other sourcing platforms, our database provides access to unique passive talent that our competitors don't have, allowing you provide your clients with the best talent quickly.


Over 70% of our new client wins come from referrals through our network, building strong relationships from the beginning. The same applies to candidates; we receive daily recommendations from our connections, making your life easier with less time spent on cold outreach and more on nurturing client and candidate relationships.

Team of experts:

You'll work alongside a team of individuals who truly understand the sector. The leadership team can offer you over 60 years of digital and technology recruitment experience and they’re eager to share their knowledge and skills with you. Whether you're new to digital and technology or experienced, you'll collaborate with like-minded individuals to bounce ideas off.

Create your own brand:

We believe in being experts in our field and actively participating in knowledge sharing within our networks and specific niches. We proudly sponsor or run events such as across Tech, Product, UX and Data. We organise smaller meet-ups for our candidates to network, host webinars to support our clients in new industry trends and through change. We'll give you the opportunity to be involved in the community and build your own brand.

Great earning potential:

We offer a strong commission scheme and milestone bonuses, couple this with an established database, well-known brands to work with plus a great brand name and it means you have excellent earning potential!
