New year, new recruitment start-ups

So many new recruitment agency start-ups – my busiest January in 23 years.

But a word of caution for the larger agencies out there. Many senior recruiters and Executive Search Consultants I speak with are simply tired. They’ve worked tirelessly during the pandemic, navigating the choppy waters on your behalf and for your business. They’ve sidestepped redundancy and furlough.

And they still found the creativity to learn new ways of working from home and getting people into work – and in the process, kept your business on the rails. And now you’re telling them (hopefully asking) to “get back in the office” and “go back to how things were”…

To quote someone from last night: “If I’d been offered a ‘return to work’ meeting, much like the one after my maternity leave, they’d know how I feel.”

Not all TAs see the same value in how things used to be.

P.S. Great signs in the North and Scotland support some impressive growth too.

You can simplify how you manage your new recruitment start-up. If you’re interested in a demo, you can schedule one to see Voyager in action

“I used Infinity with a previous Recruitment Agency for 10 years and it was fantastic. When the business was taken over and the new owners started using their own in-house CRM instead of Infinity, I decided to leave and set up my own business, and the only CRM I wanted to use was Infinity! I’ve been using Infinity again for the past 3 years, since I started InSite Resourcing Limited, and it does everything I need it to do! I would definitely recommend Infinity to any recruitment agencies looking for a new recruitment CRM!” – Freddie Clerey, Managing Director, InSite Resourcing Limited
