We are Instant Impact

We're a fast-growth business with ambitious plans to disrupt the recruitment industry. We place the best graduates into jobs at exciting and innovative companies like Aston Martin, Deliveroo, Sony and more.


What we do

We specialise in placing the UK’s top emerging talent into jobs at exciting companies, from early-stage start-ups to disruptive scale-ups & forward-thinking large businesses.

Since being founded in 2011 by two Cambridge graduates, Instant Impact has been dedicated to showing young talent that there’s more out there than corporate graduate schemes.

iiHQ is a lively and buzzing open plan office based in London Bridge. The office is full of individuals who care about the work they do, give 100% every day, and constantly strive toward self-improvement - this means energy in the office is always high!

     Who we are

At the core of our culture is a strong desire to be the best at everything we do. We know each others' strengths inside and out, which helps us ensure we're the best versions of ourselves all day, every day.

We're a team of magicians and poets, karaoke queens and rugby superstars - and we can't wait to see what you can add to the mix! What sets us apart is our collaborative team-centric culture.

Whether it's weekly brainstorming sessions, candidate sharing or collaborative problem-solving - your team and manager will be there every step of the way. We take every opportunity to praise each other and embrace each others successes.

What you will gain from us

We have a great commission structure where you can earn from your very first placement. There's no minimum threshold and we're here to make sure your hard work is rewarded. If you hit your monthly targets, the Directors will take you out for lunch at a swanky restaurant nearby.

There's also an opportunity to bag a place on our Big Billers Club. Once a year top performers head on an all expenses paid weekend abroad - recent trips have been to Valencia and San Sebastian - and Venice is looking likely for our next trip.

On top of that, it's important we recognise the little things as well as performance. At the end of every week, everyone has an opportunity to thank someone else who has helped them in the week - meaning all the little things you do won't go unnoticed!

Why we are great for graduates

Instant Impact is built by graduates, for graduates, which means we couldn't be a better place to start your career.

We recently won the Job Crowd's award for the Most Supportive Working Environment for Graduates - so if you're looking for an environment that can support you in your ambitious career plans, look no further.

Progression at Instant Impact can be fast, and as we're growing extremely quickly there's huge potential for any graduate joining now to take on a position of leadership within the business in a matter of years (with the right attitude of course)!
