Xpertise Recruitment loves taking part in charity challenges, and over the year there have been quite a few!
Our Managing Director, Richard Harrison, is on the board of the Midlands Byte Night charity which raises much needed funds for Action for Children who provide support for underprivileged children. Money raised from this charity helps to get young people off the streets, into a safe environment and helps them build back their confidence and skills with the aim of getting back into employment.
The Xpertise Recruitment team will be taking part in a number of different charity challenges and events with the aim to raise as much money as possible for Action for Children – a charity that’s very close to our hearts and a charity we have supported for many years. We’d really appreciate it if you check out our Just Giving page and donate a little something to a great charity!
Xpertise Recruitment are always looking out for young talent, and have been lucky enough to welcome three new graduates last week.
Over the next few weeks we will be introducing you to them, and finding out a little bit more about why they decided to join Xpertise Recruitment and what they enjoy doing in the spare time.
Let us introduce you to Billy Senior…
Xpertise Recruitment has recently launched a brand new career site, dedicated in attracting talented and motivated individuals to join their team. Xpertise won ‘ Best Recruitment Company to work for Under 10M‘ last year at the Recruitment International awards, and have recently been named finalists for ‘ Best Specialist Recruitment Company’ in the Global Recruiter Awards 2018.
The new career site gives an insight into what you could get involved with and achieve if you join the team. The site explores what you can be doing inside and outside the office, such as quarterly incentive trips, clear career development paths, social meet ups and annual charity challenges.
Here at Xpertise Recruitment, we are very pleased to announce we are finalists for The Global Recruiter Awards 2018, in the category ‘ Best Specialist Recruitment Business’.
Xpertise are proud sponsors of Agile Leicester meet ups, and last Thursday we attended, alongside 50 others ‘ Improvisssssing With Agile’ with key speaker and certified Scrum Trainer Paul Goddard.
If you didn’t get chance to attend, or need a quick reminder, Philip Newby, Recruitment Consultant here at Xpertise talks about the key points he took away from the interactive session..
Graduate placements are becoming more and more popular. Many universities give students the option of taking advantage of a year working in a specific industry as part of their degree. Although this may sound like another way of elongating the ‘ student life’, that’s far from the truth. Completing a graduate placement year can provide invaluable work experience, which will be well noted with future employers and help these individuals stand out from the crowd when applying for permanent job roles after graduation. It can also help in cementing future career paths, and sometimes even secure a permanent role at the end of it.
We spoke to James Whitehead, Xpertise’s graduate placement student to find out why he decided to take a year in industry, what he enjoys and what he thinks he has learnt…
5th April marks the second International Recruiters Day across the globe. This day specifically promotes and celebrates the work of recruiters.
To mark this special day, we thought we would share a video with you on why our employees love working at Xpertise Recruitment.
Xpertise were humbled in November 2017 to win the Best Recruitment Company to Work for in the UK up to £10m at the National Recruitment International Awards, beating off competition from 100+ competitors. These awards are voted for by “recruitment industry” business leaders past and present and are recognised as the most prestigious of all recruitment sector industry awards. Xpertise believe this is the first time ever that a recruitment firm based in the Midlands has won this award.
Founder and Managing Director at Xpertise Recruitment, Richard Harrison recently spoke to Recruitment International about what the latest award win means for the company, and how Xpertise Recruitment is no ordinary recruitment agency.
Richard explains “Honestly speaking, I was very emotional. It meant a great deal to me and came as a very pleasant surprise. To see that other experienced recruitment sector business leaders recognised what we were doing was very humbling.”

” Before I started, I thought that recruitment was about bottom lines and being chained to your desk: It’s really about people and that’s why I love it.”
