It takes great leadership to create longevity in recruitment. You need support and guidance. People around you who’ve been there and done it. A leadership team that inspires resilience.
Those who get it right can survive market changes, financial downfalls and economic uncertainty.
And this develops deep roots to sustain them and overcome challenges.
These well-established companies know how to differentiate themselves from the crowd and have been at the top of their game for over a decade.
They’ve brought a culture of value to their clients and candidates. And by doing so, those who work for them.
Learn about their origin stories and growth plans below.
Commodity Appointments launched back in the 70s.
They have more years of Search experience than some recruiters have been alive.
Their ethos hasn’t changed since the beginning. They’re a people business, not a numbers game. You won’t be hounded to get your phone times up or badgered to get 50 CVs out a day.
In 2020 Commodity Appointments remain the best known in their market.
Their CEO’s not stuck in the 70s either. He had over 1.7M views on his content in 2019. Which means you’ll have the opportunity to think about recruitment with a modern twist. The epitome of networking and personal branding.
To them, it’s not about the cold-calling and CV numbers. They build relationships.
