Local Cambridge firm, RedTech Recruitment are celebrating their one-year anniversary this December.
It certainly has not been plain sailing for the agency who help STEM graduates and Post-Docs secure their first role in industry.
Co-Founder Rebecca Mister commented:
We certainly did not envisage a global pandemic being declared 3 months into our business journey! We had some tense conversations back in March when our number of live roles dropped from 22 to only 3 pretty much overnight. Fortunately, through a lot of blood, sweat and tears we managed to turn the situation around and hit our ambitious year one target. I am now really excited for next year with a vaccine on the cards, thinking if we can achieve this in year one with Covid, what can we achieve in ‘normal’ years.
Reaching their one-year anniversary, RedTech are delighted that they have been able to support so many Graduates finding work in a tough climate, with their CV writing advice and rigorous interview prep.
RedTech have also managed to hire internally, employing a Business Support Administrator and a Recruitment Sales Executive. With plans to imminently hire a Recruitment Resourcer it is exciting times at RedTech HQ – which is not really a HQ at all as explained by Co-Founder, Robert Bull:
The original (pre-Covid) plan was to have a physical office by the end of the year. The thought of having a whole team working remotely was not one we had considered until Covid hit. Our HQ is now a 9.15am video conferencing room! Working remotely certainly
comes with its challenges – such as on-boarding new staff; however, we are constantly coming up with new ideas to make it work. We now plan to continue offering remote work, while still employing local people so we can meet up for regular catchups and team events,
offering a great work-life balance.
So, what is next on the cards for RedTech? Newest employee and Recruitment Executive, Kye Birks said:
RedTech already have the reputation for supplying some of the brightest and best into technology companies in Cambridge – all while maintaining very high morals and service standards! I am now ready to take our recruitment mission UK wide.
