A fusion of experience, innovation and best practice has led to the creation of a new national recruitment consultancy specialising in the built and natural environment.
Fusion People is the brainchild of Paul Metcalfe, former Managing Director of the agency AndersElite. It will offer clients a comprehensive range of technical recruitment services including contract staffing, managed staffing and permanent recruitment.
Based in Southampton with regional offices in Birmingham, Bristol, and London, Fusion People has adopted an innovative approach towards the recruitment of its own staff.
All employees will be invited to take up an equity stake in the business, giving everyone a direct share in the company’s success. This, says Paul, will guarantee staff tenure and help drive the quality and responsiveness of service for which he wants Fusion People to become known.
We’re determined not to compromise on quality and that’s why from day one staff will have a stake hold in the business. That way, we know everyone has made a long term commitment and is prepared to go the extra mile to meet the needs of both employers and jobseekers alike. But Fusion People will not rely solely on its people - it’s also investing heavily in its support infrastructure. An innovative website will help attract high calibre candidates looking for their next career move.
The Fusion People web site also reflects the innovative nature of the company. Once candidates have submitted their CV online, a revolutionary extractor tool automatically fills in the agency registration form for them and sets up a personalised account. From here there is unlimited access to search the jobs database, job alerts by e-mail and sms, details on prospective employers, and the option to apply for jobs on-line and track applications.
Through more effective use of people, processes and technology we will aim to consistently deliver better, faster and more cost effective results than other consultancies.
Says Paul. Paul, who left AndersElite in September 2003 after helping it grow turnover from £20m to £90m, has succeeded in attracting many of his former colleagues to join him in the new venture. They include Directors, Paul Scott, Mark Swain, Chris Fenn, Steve Harper and Steve Fisher.
