5 Small and Mighty Recruitment Agencies

Small in size, mighty by nature.

Joining a recruitment agency with less than 20 people versus joining a company with 200+, is a completely different ball game.

Where big companies come with huge benefits in some ways, there’s also red tape and processes which make it hard to implement useful changes. Or make an impact yourself.

Joining a smaller company gives you opportunity to really gain more control of your process and take an active part of the commercial marketplace you operate in, even shaping the business.

You’ll learn from mentors who you know have done it before. Successfully.

For  the commercially agile Recruiter, smaller companies can offer a great insight into the full business process and provide a close-knit environment.

Which is a great platform for future life.

So if you want a bigger slice of the pie, here’s our top 5 small and feisty recruitment agencies with less than 20 staff:
