Well, this is it. The big announcement. The huge reveal. The chance to say, “here are the fruits of our labour”. Branch Recruitment, based over in Warrington, is here and we’re incredibly excited (just look at our faces in the photo).
We’re here to match talented techies and digital disruptors with ambitious businesses and innovative roles.
I’ve worked in the tech and digital world for a while now and it excites me. The talent that the UK has, particularly in the North West, is second to none. But recruitment can seem like a chore.
From a client perspective, most lack the technical knowledge required when it comes to hiring. Candidate wise, the feedback is that when they get to the final stages of an interview, the role simply doesn’t meet their initial expectations.
Certainly, in the tech industry, there can be naive expectations. For the hirer, the emphasis is placed on the quantity of CVs rather than quality candidates. For the applicant, too much time spent going back and forth with questions that should be asked at the outset.
We’ve cut all of this out by being realistic upfront, continually investing in our technical knowledge and, most importantly, saying no if we can’t help and yes if we can add value.”
Not to go all political, this is what we promise for both clients and candidates
We’re also part of the Lignum Group. Why is that important? Simply put, we’re backed by one of the most ambitious recruitment companies in the UK. Obviously, we will say that, but they’ve continually grown 100% year on year. And that’s because they share our belief that recruitment can be done better.
We’ve incredibly excited about what the future holds and we hope you’ll be part of it.
