1st resource not last resort
“Have you got an vacancies?” Don’t you just hate it when recruitment agencies call and ask that question? Moreover, it’s an invitation for the agency to fall flat on their face, because if you have – they may not have the particular expertise to fill it.
So why do we do it? Well it’s a poor excuse for engaging with Employers. We all know when we get on the dreaded phone (we all have to do it at some point) that you need a reason for calling. The recruiter’s reason for calling is generally new business. So in their defence, there is a reason behind it, albeit a poorly planned call.
How can you stop this barrage of lame telesales calls? Simple! (no cute Meerkat, sorry). Use us as your first resource, not a last resort.
We deal with SO many companies, who try to beat us down on price, because they have already spent a chunk of their recruitment budget advertising and sifting themselves. A good recruitment agency will do ALL of this for you. Plus you won’t pay a penny until someone starts. So, ok you may have them search for a week and nothing comes of it – but all you have lost is the time, not the time AND money you lost last time when you looked yourself.
What do you get for your fee? Well, I can’t speak for all agencies but the very least you should be getting is:-
Wote St Employment Bureau offer a bespoke recruitment process that matches the needs of your organisation. Among the variables we offer:-
Yes, all of this is still done, regardless of whether we place someone. So why wouldn’t you go to an agency (obviously us) first? Try it for a week before you spend your budget on the job boards. If we don’t deliver – the money is still there to do that.

It all started 2 years ago, when Madelaine took part in the Brutal 10k as part of our 25th Anniversary celebrations (celebrations?? Well, we decided to raise money for Basingstoke Consortium as a way of celebrating). The rest of the team went along on a cold Saturday November morning to watch Mad go through hell.[…..]

During the Easter period, at Wote Street People it makes us think of the green shoots of spring, rebirth, and of course, lighter evenings.
