For Cheeky Recruiters...

The in-house team at AO has a highly trained set of recruiters who know the precise type of person that would flourish in the business, as such we won't consider / read speculative or unsolicited CVs from agencies to any AO employee.

When we need to draw upon our external recruitment partners we will only use suppliers who have signed up to our preferred supplier list. Only our selected recruitment partners will earn a fee where we have instructed them directly within a specific remit.

If the above is not observed the AO team reserves the right to contact submitted candidates directly and initiate discussions without payment of any agency fee.

If you chance your arm and submit unsolicited CVs and proposals to AO, all of the above will apply. We really don't think there is any point.
