Small but mighty: 3 perks of working with an independent recruitment agency that boasts a nationwide network

Posted on | Posted in Businesses, Recruitment

We connect the best-matched candidates and businesses – the people brokers.

Taking the time to find the right-fit for candidates and customers alike increases the probability of candidates being happy in not only your new role but blossoming in the right company culture. And companies achieving higher staff retention, effective teams and increased staff productivity.  Happy days for all.

Stronger, wiser and more resilient with TEAM

To make this magic happen, we dedicate considerable time to nurture and develop business relationships to benefit both our customers and candidates – and we do it well.  To make our offering even stronger we’re a member of a recruitment industry network called TEAM.  Maxine Hart, our Operations Director, is also a Regional Director at TEAM.

We became a member of TEAM over 10 years’ ago. It not only delivers access to lots of essential recruitment advice, but they lobby on behalf of our industry and we gain access to 450 like-minded independent recruitment agencies across the breadth of the UK.  There’s plenty of opportunities for us to communicate and network too, so along with building strong relationships with other agencies as far and wide as Gateshead, Guildford and Gillingham, we also thrive on all our wonderful shared ideas to make recruitment better for you.

One TEAM working for YOU

So, here’s three top reasons why you should consider forging a relationship with recruitment agencies that are members of the TEAM – like Wote Street People:

For Candidates looking for a new job

  • We promote you. We DON’T sell you. Because we have more control, we take more time to understand what you’re looking for from your next job and company, proactively introducing you to companies that fulfil these requirements.
  • Having the time to dedicate to our candidates we expand our offering to deliver career coaching. Supporting you with the development of your CV, understanding your skills and how you could transfer your experience to start a new career or work in a different industry. We can even support you with a plan of action to overcome obstacles such as being perceived as ‘over-qualified’ for a role and therefore discounted.
  • You gain access to 450 recruitment agencies across the UK whilst only having to visit and build relationships with ONE. This is ideal for anyone looking to move to/away from Basingstoke or the surrounding area – or you’re happy to commute further afield.

For Companies looking for candidates to join their organisation

  • Being independent we have more control over the time we set to explore candidate options. We work hard until we find you the best talent rather than sending you who fits the bill on paper in a set period.
  • We have access to 450 recruitment agencies across the UK. If your industry has a shortage of skilled people, it enables us to tap into our TEAM network and find people who fit your criteria and culture, living in other parts of the UK and who are willing to relocate. Our relationship with TEAM is highly beneficial if you’re moving or expanding into new locations and need to attract quality staff.
  • No more restrictive covenants. For some roles it is important that more than one agency is looking to find you the right calibre candidate. However, this relationship can be extremely time consuming for you and restrictive. Wote Street People can tap into other TEAM agencies that specialise in your field, but you’ll only have to deal with one agency – us ad that saves you substantial time, energy and offers a more flexible approach to recruitment.

Find out more about how you can take advantage of our TEAM network and working with a small, but mighty independent recruitment agency.  Although our office is currently closed, our team is working remotely and would love to talk through your recruitment or career challenges.
