Genum

What Hunted Says

In just 4 short years, Genum have gone from nipping to Starbucks in Tooting for candidate meetings, to working with an impressive client list within the property market. Based in Victoria you'll be able to benefit from the central location but also communal areas, artisan cafe, boxing and crossfit gym, roof terrace and general break out areas that are available to work in. With a non-KPI driven environment, close-knit team and Friday team lunches, this is an excellent platform for a recruiter to join the Genum family.

Zak James (Founder & Director)

...we spend two thirds of our life at work...more than we will ever spend with family members...we have to love what we do, who we work with and where we work...we have all three!

…company vision ….quite simply to become the industry leading property recruitment firm in the UK using ethical and transparency as our key motivators in business.

Anjali Denning-Sen (Senior Consultant)

How are we going to get there?

4 year plan…to grow organically over the next few years roughly doubling our workforce exponentially year on year for the next 4 years. What are we looking at in the long term: Once reaching a point of saturation in terms of employee and client retention looking at other avenues of the recruitment business such as medical, legal and contract recruitment. We also have plans to source an office abroad to do the back office work for the business such as sourcing and administration as and when we require the support.

...a bit about Zak & where Genum began

Zak founded and directs the business. Having never done recruitment before however having a plethora of contacts in the property business from over 15 years trading and running teams in the sector he spotted a niche for a transparent, upfront and honest business. Starting the business from his bedroom doing interviews in Starbucks in Tooting Broadway...it already seems a long cry away even though it was only four years. The company has gone from strength to strength thanks to some amazing long term friends and contacts in the business and now we sit on the preferred supplier list of some of the top property & proptech firms in the UK. My three loves... My faith, my family and making a positive difference in the world with our business. Spare time: Hang out with my 9 months old son, he's a great conversationalist. Ride my motorbike which is apparently my mid life crisis and watch and participate in boxing at my local Amateur Boxing Club.

...a bit about Anjali

My three loves are my family & friends, keeping fit at the gym and good food. In my spare time, I love socialising with friends, going to the gym and always being on the go. To describe Genum in one word, I would say we are unique. We have the best team, we all work extremely hard in the most wonderful offices and I feel very privileged to be a part of this growing journey.

...a bit about Jess

My three loves are my family, friends and music. In my spare time, I like to socialise with my friends and family, try out new restaurants and often visit Richmond park with my partner and our dog Coco. What I love about Genum, The thing I most love about Genum is the atmosphere, we are always making strong relationships with our candidates and clients and I immediately felt like a valued member of the team.

…our approach is mature, ethical and no nonsense.

...it's not all about KPI's

…at Genum we are here to enjoy what we do every day. We work hard however we work smart. We are not a KPI based business, we are about results, finding the right people for our clients within the time frames that they have specified and targeting ourselves not on how many appointments we book but how well we manage to fill the roles and of course bring in revenue for ourselves and the business. How we get there is as important as the result.

Location & Office

We have just moved into our new private office space literally next to Victoria station and we are enjoying every moment of being here. Apart from being next door to Victoria station the access for the city and travelling is easy. We have found candidates are much more willing to come and see us and we really enjoy the fact that even though we have our own private office we have access to communal areas, artisan cafe, boxing and crossfit gym, roof terrace and general break out areas that are available to work in. Because we are part of The Office Group network we have the ability to meet clients in any of their meeting spaces across London and the country…again very useful for client/candidate meetings on the go. This is now our permanent home.

...a bit about George

My three loves are my family & friends, skiing, and EDM festivals. In my spare time I enjoy making memories with my friends and family, ticking off my bucket list, and living while I’m young. I define Genum with two words - culture and opportunity. Culture and opportunity are at the heart of everything Genum does for it’s employees, clients and candidates. We spend time to gain true understanding of both client and candidate, and this allows us to find our candidates careers for life, and our clients the perfect people for their culture and opportunities. A doctor wouldn’t advise a treatment for a patient they hadn’t met so why should we place candidates without getting to know them first.

...a bit about Zamir

My three loves are my Family and Friends, playing music and travelling. In my spare time, I love going on adventures with my girlfriend, writing music and trying new food. To Love people first is the heart and soul of Genum. The team are amazing here and the work ethic to get candidates into the right roles is exceptional. It is great to be part of a company who looks after candidates and clients like family.
