Was that the magic ingredient? Hopefully, because that’s where RedSprout started, too. It was a converted garage though, so we weren’t exactly slumming it.
In the garage, in 2016, Mark had an inkling that video could play a big part in recruitment. After all, it’s all about people. You get to know people by listening to them and seeing them, not just reading about them.
RedSprout was born and we videoed everything. From candidates talking about what they’d done and what they wanted to do, to clients talking about what they did, who they were looking for and why someone should join them.
Video allows people to meet each other before actually meeting and guess what, it saves everyone a huge amount of time… apart from us. It takes a lot of effort to video everyone but it’s the right thing to do. Recruiters are renowned for charging a fee (sometimes a hefty one) and it can be difficult to see what that’s for.
Finding someone and forwarding across their CV doesn’t justify the fee in most cases. We were determined that RedSprout wouldn’t do that. We would do everything to make sure we found the right person for your business and the right job for you when you started looking.
It’s a simple mission but one that’s important to everyone here. If you’d like us to help you recruit or you’re looking for your next job, please do get in touch.Get in touch
