Recruitment's reputation...

I’ll be honest, Recruitment wasn’t something I was initially attracted to. It’s no secret the industry has a stigma (a stigma I admit I had previously bought into myself) and that it’s for Jordan Belfort type characters. Of course I now realise that this isn’t always the case. From day one, The Candidate clearly demonstrated they were different, both as individuals and as a business. Firstly, they lead in their Market but still have the benefits of a boutique, smaller agency, whether it be flexibility of work, facetime with senior stakeholders or more importantly detailed training and development from the top-down. There’s honest progression opportunities too, not the overinflated “OTE £50k in your 1st year” (at the cost of selling your soul) like we see all too often.

All of this comes hand-in-hand with a realistic and actually healthy work-life-balance. Not a “cold-calling, sit-there-till-8pm, super-salesy culture.” Culture is one of our biggest selling points to potential employees, but it’s something difficult to communicate in a blog without seeing in person. What I can say though is that you’re given genuine autonomy and get to be part of a really down-to-earth, likeminded team which has a real family feel. We’ve created a supportive, positive and collaborative environment to work in which is no doubt a key part of our success to date. 


Exciting times ahead!

After a very weird (but successful) 2021, it’s time to look ahead! We’re looking to add several new faces to the business, to join both my team (Marketing Recruitment) and others across the business in Tech, Analytics, Ecommerce, Agency and more.

If any of the above resonates with you and you’d just like to find out a bit more about what a role with us would look like then don’t be afraid to get in touch. I’m more than happy to explain in greater detail given I was in your shoes only a couple of years ago.

Feel free to send me an email [email protected], or give us a call on 0161 833 1044.
