Why does the recruitment agency get thousands and thousands of pounds when they find me
a job? Surely I should get something?
Is the recruitment agency marketing me effectively?
Why do pushy recruitment consultants try to get me to do jobs that I do not want to do?
How can an agency say I am not suitable for this job?
These were just a few of the many questions RHUL Graduate Anna Taylor asked herself, and which subsequently prompted her to develop a recruitment agency like no other. The result, RecruitmentRevolution.com, the UK's first online recruitment agency is exclusively for students and graduates.
Fed up and bored with the traditional 'High Street' recruitment process, Anna and Jamie, her partner (in love and business), spent 18 months creating a first to market business model that sees for the first time the traditional high street recruitment agency merge with the online job board and CV database system. Anna explains: "We have created a system that allows companies to headhunt, communicate with, and book temporary candidates through our online market-place without being hassled by an interfering and target-driven recruitment consultant.
Additionally, companies can recruit for their permanent positions by searching our candidate database or by posting their jobs on our job board. Our clients are then able to use our free Peace of Mind™ facilities, interview the candidate, and then if successful, pay us a small fee which competes with online and traditional print advertising costs." Gone are the days of paying thousands and thousands to recruit a member of staff. Whether companies are recruiting for a £20K or £100K position they will pay the same low fee, which is not dictated by starting salaries.
RecruitmentRevolution.com has created a financially beneficial service for both its candidates and clients achieved by abolishing the extortionate agency fees and replacing it with a low pricing model. Not content with developing a first to market business, Anna has created other industry firsts and innovative features including: the Transfer Fee™ – candidates receive a percentage of RecruitmentRevolution.com's placement fee; Turn Your Friends Into Cash™ – candidates who refer their friends earn 50p for every hour that their friends work. (RecruitmentRevolution.com places no limit on this so candidates have the potential to earn a nice sum of money.) The business model also boasts the Online Reference Score™, recruitment's own eBay-style feedback system. Linked to this system are weekly rewards for those candidates with the highest scores, and the opportunity to be the Dream Candidate of the year and £2000 richer. RecruitmentRevolution.com also offers its candidates free online testing and training courses, exclusive concessions on services and products from popular brands and priority access to its TightlyKnit social events.
All in all RecruitmentRevolution.com is a cool 21st century recruitment agency, which is long overdue and boasts the potential to turn the recruitment industry on its head.
