Welcome to Revision Recruitment
Well, the inaugural first blog on the website, so the pressure is indeed on and in no small measure!
Having limited experience in writing this sort of content I felt it was really important to understand the message I was trying to convey in this first post, and to ensure that I wrote something which was both personal and relevant.
When I started my journey with Revision Recruitment, I had high hopes and several aspirations about how I wanted the business to be perceived by clients, candidates and my peers. My initial thoughts were that I wanted to create a brand which stood for something, a brand which was underwritten by all the things I think recruitment can, and should be. As I progressed through the initial design brief and started to look at logos, website designs and company literature, I was struck about just how much autonomy I now had, and how that autonomy could have been intimidating if I didn’t channel it in the right way.
The key thing with autonomy is to use it wisely, and not to go so far down the route of ‘doing your own thing’ as to drift away from what you are trying to achieve, and it was also important that I stayed true to the areas I felt comfortable in – namely Engineering, Manufacturing and Technical recruitment.
That said, having autonomy meant I could challenge myself to think of all the things that I hadn’t been able to do in previous roles, so new ideas like sub-contract recruitment services and in-house recruitment projects, had the chance to be developed and offered to an ever flexible and diverse employment market.
Revision Recruitment Limited are a combination of all of the good things I’ve ever learned in recruitment, and a few new ideas I’d like to develop and build, most importantly it’s about a brand which reflects the needs of the clients and candidates I have the pleasure I am working with.
I’ve had some fantastic feedback from everyone who has spoken to me about the business so far, and I cannot thank all of those individuals enough.
I look forward to seeing how this journey develops, and whether making my own revision has changed the course of my future.
