A Sunninghill couple mean business as they have launched what could be the first recruitment website of its kind in the world.
Jamie Mistlin, 27, and Anna Taylor, 24, of Silwood Road, are behind www.recruitmentrevolution.com which claims to be the first website to merge the high street agency with an online job board. It aims to make it easier to find employment by letting people apply for the jobs they choose, have a say in their salaries and make more money as agency fees are reduced. Mr Mistlin said: “ We came up with the idea through our own poor experiences with agencies when we were temping as students and thought it was really strange a third party was taking a cut of our earnings.”
The website has now attracted more than 2,000 candidates, the backing of several large companies and attention for other recruitment agencies nationwide. Mr Mistlin added: “This system has never been produced before and that has been acknowledged by the online recruitment marketing council – it is possibly the first of its kind in the world.”
The website tool a year to build, with the pair working flat out to produce a mammoth 250 page business plan and getting money together to fund the project.
