The client: SB Media Group
SB Media Group is a growing digital marketing and promotions company, with offices in Eversholt and London.
Number of employees: 16 (the majority of employees are based primarily at the Eversholt office).
Sector: Digital marketing
The situation: Jonny Brown (Director) had worked with Ascendant Recruitment consultant Sascha in her previous role. He was impressed by her excellent customer service skills so when he next needed to recruit, he agreed to give Ascendant Recruitment a try.
SB Media Group is rapidly expanding and they have been investing in high calibre, forward thinking employees who will continue to grow and develop with the organisation. As a relatively small company, it’s imperative that they recruit people who fit in well with the rest of the team and share the company ethos, so this is always a key consideration.
Jonny had had mixed experiences with recruitment agencies in the past. He wanted to work in partnership with a consultancy who would take the time to develop a good knowledge of the company culture and understand the qualities they looked for in their employees.
Due to company growth, during the last 12 months they have needed to recruit a Market Researcher, a Junior Web Developer, two Junior Marketing roles and a Financial Controller.
For each role, the focus has been very much on finding the right people with less emphasis on timescale, which is why it’s so important to SB Media Group to work with a consultancy who knows them well and can effectively screen candidates on their behalf.
The solution: Sascha Ross and Izzy Hussain (Finance Recruitment Consultant) continued to build their relationship with the team at SB Media by spending time in their office, gaining further insight into the business and developing a sound understanding of the personal attributes they were looking for.
Both Sascha and Izzy have focused on finding high quality candidates to introduce to Jonny and his colleague John, staying in regular communication each time to keep them updated on the progress of their searches.
The result: Over the past year Ascendant Recruitment has successfully filled all five roles and continues to work in partnership with SB Media Group. Speaking about his experience with Ascendant Recruitment, Jonny said:
“All of the people we’ve employed through Ascendant Recruitment are of a very high calibre and are getting on really well in their roles. Sascha and Izzy know the type of person we look for and I trust their recommendations and ability to find out about the person behind the CV before they send over their details.
The service I’ve received has been fantastic, responsive and very professional - I would always recommend Ascendant Recruitment.”
