Based down in vibrant, sunny Brighton (well, Hove actually), William Alexander boast excellent retention. No one has left the company since October 2016. To us, that says a heck of a lot. With a very experienced delivery team, their industry experience really does give them an edge against the competitive IT recruitment landscape. Oh, and did we mention, if the company hits target everyone goes on the company trip. Yes, everyone.
William Alexander is a specialist Technology & Business Change recruiter. Established in February 2010, we are now a team of 29, turned over in excess of £18 million in our ninth year of operation and plan to double in size over the next 5 years. From the beginning, we wanted to differentiate ourselves from our competitors by hiring high caliber individuals who share our ethical approach to recruitment and who we actually enjoy working with on a daily basis (which in IT recruitment does rather narrow the potential pool of candidates....) Everyone probably says this stuff, but not everyone can honestly boast of 4% staff turnover (in an industry that averages 25-30%) and that not a single client-facing Business Consultant has left William Alexander since we started in February 2010 for any reason whatsoever. That has to mean something good, surely?
So maybe you invoice £150K-£250,000 as a 360 Consultant and you probably earn between £60K-£90,000. This is excellent. You most likely work very hard to achieve this. Imagine what you could do without having to do any candidate sourcing though... We have 15 experienced Researchers (average experience of 6 + years apiece) supporting 10 Business Consultants. Our top two Business Consultants billed £900K and £800K last year and will earn over £200,000 and they might not have worked any harder than you did. It puts things into perspective, doesn't it?
Are you fed up of handing over your clients best jobs to some barely literate neanderthal on a contract desk? Because you "don't understand contract" and it is clearly beyond the wit of humankind to do both. I am not being funny but the contract guy looks like he has trouble using cutlery so how hard can it be? At William Alexander you have the relationship with the client and if they want a permanent candidate then you can supply them with a permanent candidate and if they want a contract then you can supply them with a contract candidate. I can't really see the complication to be honest but perhaps I have missed something...
