Zen Hair UK are a hair extension importer and explorer microbusiness start-up looking to grow by bringing talented and knowledgeable employees on board. They act as both a hair extension wholesaler and supplier for trade salons as well as doing trade shows and magazine shoots.
“From the first time I used Recruitment Genius I loved the convenience of it and thought they presented themselves very well”
Like with all start-ups, Managing Director Johnny Yip found himself doing everything in the office. One minute on the phone, the next doing accounts or packing stock, so spending time following a recruitment process was always going to be a challenge.
Having previously used Jobcentre Plus to recruit in previous companies, Yip was looking to ensure that he was going to get value when paying any kind of fee.
Recruitment Genius was able to convey the bigger picture. Finding the right staff, especially when you are a start-up, can mean the difference between success and failure. Recruitment Genius gave Yip flexibility and full control to run a successful recruitment campaign from writing the job ad, to managing the 170 applicants through the employer portal.
“It’s been a great success story so far. I would really recommend Recruitment Genius to any other company that’s going through the same. It really does take away a lot of the headaches and makes the whole process very smooth”
The fact that Yip was able to communicate with all the applicants, whether successful or not, meant disturbance from agencies calling up every 5 minutes and putting pressure on choosing from CVs was not an issue.
Finally, the fixed fee of £199 per position was ideal for a start-up.
