Chairman of the Recruitment Society becomes non-exec for leading online recruiter
13th August 2010
Recruitment industry expert, Steve Huxham has joined Recruitment Genius as a non-executive director. Having accumulated over 25 years experience in the recruitment industry and through his role as Chairman of the Recruitment Society, Steve is regarded as one of the most knowledgeable recruitment experts in the UK. As a regular media commentator, and speaker at industry events and conferences, Steve is a welcome addition to the Recruitment Genius team.
Recruitment Genius is causing quite a storm in the recruitment sector. The new model, which initially faced sceptism, provides a service where customer’s recruitment adverts are drafted, approved and online with tens of job boards in less than 24 hours. The organisation then filters CVs before sending the appropriate ones back to customers for review. The exciting bit is that they do all this for £199.
Commenting on the post Steve said: “There is no doubt that recruitment is changing, or rather than the recruitment industry has to change. The current economic climate combined with the transparency the internet provides means that agencies cannot get away with charging the level of fees they once did. In order to survive recruitment companies will have to get savvy and really consider what the customers want and need. As well as what they are willing to pay for. That is exactly what Recruitment Genius did. They looked at the industry, its issues and came up with a solution which is far more attuned to today’s customers. I have a great deal of experience in the recruitment industry but I am also very excited to be part of the future.”
