We are an award-winning company, and this is due to the excellent people within. We are both vibrant and innovative and offer an enjoyable and rewarding place to create a career that you can be proud of.

This is fundamentally a sales role, which of course comes with (realistic) targets, however Edison Pope offers more than just this. It gives each person a chance to create his or her own career, which moves as quickly as you want. We are a meritocracy- you can guarantee that your hard work will be rewarded!

This is an exciting time to become part of Edison Pope, we are constantly and consistently growing and each person within the company can grow with this both in terms of the scope of their role and what they can achieve within the company. We do not promote based on time at the company, but on achievement, which means your growth trajectory is fluid and not tied to time constraints.

Recruitment warrants long hours and hard work, but the results are well worth the sacrifice and this is not just in terms of financial gain. (The hard work definitely seems worth it during the 5 week ‘Summer Shutdown’ holiday over the summer.)
