Recruitment Network Records Surge in Membership

September 15th, 2020 by Veronica Blatt

September 2020—“TEAM (www.jobsatteam.com), the UK’s largest network of independent recruiters, is experiencing a continuing rise in enquiries,” according to MD Jackie Torr. “Back in March this year our projections for 2020 went out the window and the industry was in turmoil. However independent recruiters have proved to be very resilient and many of our Members have reacted quickly to changing market sectors and methods of working. The vast majority of new enquiries are coming from recruiters who are recognising that the TEAM network provides massive opportunities to engage quickly and directly with similar, like-minded agency owners across the UK and beyond. Sharing business opportunities and tapping into a vast range of help and guidance from experienced professionals is proving invaluable. On a weekly basis we are hearing of some really great shared fees and this August two Members shared a £24,000 placement fee which is our largest this year …. so far! It is also interesting to note that a significant number of the 74 new Members who have joined TEAM so far this year have been recent and new start-ups, many of them saying that if they can make their business work in the current market then they will have built strong foundations for the future. We are all aware that conditions are not going to magically improve overnight but the determination and cooperative spirit of many of our Members is proving to be a key element to their future.”

NPAworldwide enjoys a partnership with TEAM that allows members of each organization expanded geographic capacity.

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA — June 30, 2020 — Legal specialist recruiter, founder and CEO of Elias Recruitment (www.eliasrecruitment.com), Jason Elias won the 2020 RCSA Industry Award for Recruitment Leader of the Year. Mr. Elias was elected Chairman-Elect of NPAworldwide in 2019, and ascended to a two-year term as Chairman beginning in 2020.

image of Recruitment Leader of the Year AwardOn Friday afternoon, 26 June 2020, the annual Australian RCSA Industry Awards (www.rcsa.com.au) were held. The prestigious RCSA Industry Awards provide the opportunity to recognise the best of the best in the recruitment, staffing and workforce solutions sector in Australia and New Zealand.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the event, which is usually a glamorous gala dinner, was held using a live stream via the RCSA Facebook page.

“It was a wonderful surprise, especially given the quality of the other finalists and the record number of applications this year”, said Elias. “Since starting Elias Recruitment 20 years ago, I have always maintained a philosophy of collaboration over competition. Our aim is to get the best match for the candidate and client, and if that means working with other agencies and splitting the placement fee, so be it. A happy candidate and happy client will lead to greater long-term success.

To this end I owe a lot to NPAworldwide–the world’s largest recruitment network. NPAworldwide has taught me the value of collaboration and has led to dozens of extra placements. By working with other quality recruiters, we expand our geographic and industry reach. Moreover, we share market knowledge, technical skills, industry insights and camaraderie. I have had the honour of volunteering on and off in NPA since 2007 and am honoured to be its current global chairman.

A big thanks to the RCSA and Indeed for sponsoring the Recruitment Leader of the Year Award. I want to thank my amazing and loyal team: Karolina, Margot, Maryanne, Paige, Rachel and Stephen. A huge thanks to our clients, candidates, my RCSA committee colleagues, NPA partners and staff, and my dear friend and trusted confidante Sue-Ella Prodonovich. Graham Jenkins has also been a generous and masterful mentor over many years. My patient wife Jackie and three kids who have tolerated many early morning and late night phone calls and me being away from home to fulfill my numerous volunteering commitments.

This has been a tough year for many in our industry, including our team. It has been satisfying, though, to see so many recruiters rallying together and embracing collaboration. There are some encouraging green shoots in the market and we are well positioned to bounce back. At Elias Recruitment we even have a new consultant, Tegan, joining the team next week. Thanks again for a great honour and here’s to a bright new financial year.”
