Why are we different from a typical recruitment agency
Posted on 3rd September 2020 at 13:24
When we set up Emerald Starfish over 10 years ago, we wanted to do recruitment differently. We loved recruitment and making a difference for our candidates as well as our clients. Getting candidates on the next step on their career ladder, an increased salary and a new opportunity to learn new skills.
We felt that there was a mismatch though, working in a recruitment agency we were working for the candidates – trying to get them the best salary, selling them in against other candidates, but the client was paying the bill.
At Emerald Starfish we wanted to bring the focus to the client – to understand what they need for their next position, and to make sure that all of their time wasn’t taken up testing and assessing candidates and paying us for the pleasure!
