Part of the Page Group, Michael Page provides advice to the Sci-Tech Daresbury community on talent attraction and retention. According to Liz, their insight has been invaluable for the business.
She said: “As a small business, the opportunity to have a team of recruitment specialists, such as Michael Page, on hand to offer insight about the modern recruitment process and what new generations are looking for when job hunting, has been fantastic.
“Thanks to their expertise, we’ve adjusted our recruitment techniques and this process has been fantastic for opening our eyes to fresh approaches.”
Since 2013, Global EMEA has expanded its team size to nine employees and now also operates out of a second office in Newport, Wales.
Liz added: “While the skill set that we require from new employees remains the same, we’ve noticed a major shift in the need for us as the employer to sell ourselves more. It’s definitely different from how it used to be, you’re trying to encourage a person to choose your business and the benefits and culture you provide – the power dynamic has, in some ways, shifted into the hands of the employee.
“The support from Sci-Tech Daresbury is helping us keep abreast of any changes in the wider world, not just strictly in recruitment but also in HR, sales and social media. Opportunities such as this open up a whole new area of expertise and information which isn’t always readily available to SMEs, and I think this has been massively key in helping us along as we grow.”
