The current model of high-commissions and self-interest isn’t working for the client or the candidate. We believe the recruitment industry has to change. Our model means you…

Our team sit with you, in your offices, to build a better team.

A better experience for everyone

 

The recruitment process is fundamentally broken. We want to challenge the industry by driving forward with a new, genuinely service-led model.

 
 

It has become harder to build the best teams – competition for candidates is tougher and replacing departing employees is expensive.

Traditional recruitment agencies offer an expensive service that doesn’t feel like good value – much like insurance, it’s become a begrudged purchase. This cost-to-value mismatch is where the relationship with clients and candidates falls apart.

The emphasis on commission is at the heart of the issue, encouraging and incentivising the wrong behaviours. Beyond this, candidates don’t trust the industry and clients’ expectations are far from managed well.

We have to rethink the agency model and work more closely with clients to attract, and win, the best candidates. And clients want to pay a fair rate for the service delivered. It’s that simple.

 

NO COMMISSION

We feel that the commission model is the single biggest change needed in the recruitment industry. It’s become an expensive service, and one that doesn’t always feel like good value.

It’s also a model which encourages the wrong behaviours; while there’s a focus on hitting KPIs, there will be less of an emphasis on headhunting someone right, and more of an emphasis on headhunting someone right now. 

We want to change this. We charge a simple monthly retainer with no additional fees upon placement – one that could save you an average of 60%.

  • Service-led

  • No contracts

MARKETING YOU TO YOUR FUTURE EMPLOYEES

Company culture has become one of the most important factors candidates consider when seeking new employment. Make it easier for them to choose you.

We are the only recruitment agency that creates content and builds digital campaigns, marketing you directly to target candidate pools, not only helping to convert new hires, but providing great PR for you as a modern employer.

It closes that gap between you and your potential talent – candidates who engage directly with clients tend to have a better experience and stay longer as a result.

  • Be employer of choice

  • Attract the right talent


ON-SITE TEAM

Ever felt like your recruitment agency just doesn’t quite understand exactly what you’re looking for? The disconnect often experienced with traditional recruitment agencies means that both candidates’ and clients’ expectations are not met.  

Instead, we act as an extension of your team, spending time on site, integrating with your business, understanding exactly who you’re looking for and who will have the ideal skills, mindset and personality to fit the role seamlessly.

It’s an approach that helps you attract the right people, retain them, and make the hiring process quicker and smoother. Everybody wins.

  • Plug and play

  • Recruit as you
