Four graduate from Redline’s first Recruitment Academy
Redline Group has graduated four new recruits from its inaugural Recruitment Academy.
This is the first major intake of graduates from the Academy since it commenced earlier in 2017, offering a structured development programme and the opportunity to gain hands-on experience within the technology recruitment industry. The new recruitment consultants are now assigned across Redline’s permanent and contract divisions.
Graduating from the Academy are Charlotte Belt, Brett Longden, Kristian Barnard and Dante Stein. The Training Academy has been specifically designed to identify and enhance the skills of trainee recruitment consultants through a fun and inspiring way of learning. The programme initially covers the recruitment ‘basics’ via a mix of classroom, technology and desk-based training together, combined with external courses.
Natalie Tyler, talent acquisition & training manager at Redline Group, said, “The Academy has proven to be a very valuable recruitment tool. It’s imperative that we are able to address the skills gap in the sector. Re-training and up-skilling ambitious individuals, who might not have been to university or worked in the technology recruitment industry before, is an effective way to tackle this issue.
“Following the Academy success, we are looking to launch the next Talent Academy in September this year. We will be looking for motivated, driven and talented individuals who seek a well-supported chance to join the rapidly expanding world of Technology Recruitment. Please follow this link to find out more ‘Redline Talent Academy’.”
Martin Crapper, managing director at Redline Group, commented, “Redline has grown > 55% in the last two years in response to expanding client needs and growth in high-technology professionals across the UK and Europe. For Redline to continue to 100 staff, we need to identify and develop 30+ new staff over the next 2-3 years. One of Redline’s key differentiators is not just what we do, but HOW we do it. What’s critical for us is to ensure our Consultants have the right approach, attitude, skills and style to continue to deliver the high-quality recruitment & retention advice to clients. Our standards are high, our clients even higher and 35+ years in the high-technology sector is quite a legacy to build upon. We’re also keen to give opportunities to people who may have seen recruitment as a negative option. Alas there are some horror stories out there, but our business has an average tenure of nearly 7 years, so we are genuinely investing for the long-term, both in our employees, new recruits and our customers. I’m really excited about the four new people in our teams and can’t wait to meet our next group.”
