A Word from the Founder
Having spent 20 years in the recruitment industry progressing from Consultant to Director level, I have not only seen the perception and reputation of my chosen industry crumble. I have personally witnessed a distinct change. Recruitment Agencies were once delivering a consultative service to HR on vacancy advertising, candidate screening and interview processes resulting in accurate placement outcomes. Now it feels like the majority are working like a conveyor belt of sales calls, bulk CV submissions, interview targets and bums on seats. Leaving a huge void and lack of trust between HR and recruitment agents. What went wrong?
In the haste to submit a CV before their competitors, a keyword skill search on a job board replaced matching and the screening process became hollow. In my opinion this paired with recruitment activity targets is what gave the industry a cut throat reputation of ‘seeing what sticks’.
I couldn’t leave an industry I love, but I could offer an alternative. It was time to evolve, harmonise and re-build those bridges, as lets face it HR and recruitment MUST work hand in hand and in line with the business and its people strategy.
