About Mercury Hampton

MH opened its doors as a specialist executive search consultancy in November 2017. We set out to do things smarter and better, in an industry not exactly renowned for quality or innovation.

Since then, we've not only built success on success, but we've diversified to the extent that we're now doing things 'smarter and better' across the full organisational spectrum.

Along with executive resourcing and headhunting, our services include retention, corporate restructuring, psychometric assessment, coaching and training, performance management and rewards.

We're also a technology innovator. Our customisable training apps support Blue Chip users, while Mercury Hampton IQ is an industry-leading online selection and assessment platform.

Now to some numbers.

Based near Warrington, we advise C-Suite level clients in SMEs, Blue Chip / multinationals, and investment funds across 14 countries (and growing).

We grew 100% last year, even through the pandemic, and we made zero redundancies!

Recently we moved into large, open plan, top floor 5-star offices in Newton-Le-Willows, within 15 miles or so of both Liverpool and Manchester, whilst accessible for Preston, Chester and surrounding towns.

And we expect to recruit another six team members before the end of the year.

Graduate training. Prepare to be the best!

Just to be clear, we won't be giving you two minutes' training and then telling you to hit the phones. This is a solid opportunity.

During the first three months you'll rotate through our various service teams, learning the basics of our services and approach; view this as a very highly paid apprenticeship program!

Alongside this, there'll be a solid first wave of professional training, overseen by our Leadership team and a in-house executive performance coach, not to mention a selection of accredited training companies.

Expect to gain an excellent business development toolset, with a strong focus on business problem-solving and high value solutions selling.

Throughout, and beyond, you'll be mentored by senior colleagues while your formal training continues. And you'll be trusted with as much responsibility as your growing skills allow.

Where will all this lead?

You'll become a qualified business development professional, skilled at sales & marketing, key account management, project management, technology, resourcing and consulting.

Once trained, you'll be working at senior levels in existing and potential clients. Building relationships. Understanding their issues. And promoting our solutions and services.

Longer term, you'll be able to specialise in the areas that interest you most. Fired up by tech? Intrigued by human performance? We'll be listening.

Over the next few years we'll also be opening offices in the USA, South of England, Middle East and Malaysia to support our growing client bases there - so working / living overseas could be in your future.

And we would expect you to be earning GBP50,000 or more within your first three years, as part of a generous package that includes company bonus + numerous benefits.


We're looking for business-minded people who are excellent problem-solvers, confident collaborators and hungry to learn.

You'll be graduate calibre, ideally, HNC, HND or degree but feel free to convince us otherwise. And you'll be someone who's 'done something', whether it's sport, volunteering, travel, creative or work.

This is a business development role, so you'll need to be the kind of person with high ambition, undeterred by setbacks, and naturally entrepreneurial.
