Pushing for Promotion
Their football star partners may be pushing for promotion with Colchester United but for Imogen Gibbs and Jill Routledge a move to Colchester is about promotion of a different kind....
After joining their respective partners, Colchester United centre forward Clive Platt and centre half Paul Reid in Colchester, recruitment specialist Imogen Gibbs and finance professional Jill Routledge planned to spend a few leisurely months settling into life in Essex. However, for the two business-minded women this didnt last long and a chance meeting at a dinner changed everything, as Jill explains. Imogen and I immediately hit it off and began talking about our previous jobs and future plans for life in Essex. We had both worked within Blue chip companies and our range of experience really complimented each other within the following three months a business plan was drawn up and our Recruitment Consultancy Nu:Resourcing was formed.
Imogen and Jill found they had exactly the same business ethos in that the key to success was about communication and going right back to basics. Where we differ in respect to most other recruitment companies is that we dont promise to make it easy for you if its worth doing its worth doing properly. Poor recruitment is a huge cost to a business and a vast amount of unnecessary time can be spent with unsuitable employees, explains Imogen. Many Agencies promise to find a match after spending just a few minutes with you on the phone or referencing previous recruitment adverts. Its not as simple as that. We know from our 14 years experience within the industry that to find the perfect candidate who will be a long term asset to your business it is essential to form a strong working partnership which means commitment from both parties. We will become ambassadors for your business and to do this well we need to meet you and know all about your business, your aspirations, your culture and even your bad bits all of this helps to match exactly to your requirements.
Geographically speaking Essex is a prime location for anyone seeking employment or looking to recruit. We are keen to hear from high calibre candidates looking for opportunities, and we are keen to demonstrate to prospective clients what we can do for them.
These are certainly exciting times for Imogen and Jill and they hope to emulate their partners footballing success with Colchester United in their own transfer to the area by demonstrating their own premiership recruitment skills.
