tl:dr – What matters to us:
- To be nice to people
- To understand Java tech and the community around it, to be better at recruiting the right people
- To build long term – not one-off – relationships with candidates
RecWorks was founded by Barry and Tanya Cranford in 2006. The company was borne from a belief that recruitment didn’t have to be an unethical, cold place to be and that an opportunity existed to learn from others, to deliver an outstanding recruitment service.
Through its communities, RecWorks has built a business very different from other recruitment agencies.
Our core values:
Not only being nice,
but also being genuine
We value people being nice to one another, but also being 100% genuine.
Not only delivering a quality service,
but also striving for recommendations
We strive to deliver the kind of service that people tell their friends and colleagues about.
Not only having a good pitch,
but also believing actions speak louder than words
We have a great pitch, but follow through on everything we promise.
Not only constantly trying new things,
but also progressively improving
We spend a lot of time coming up with new ways to solve the talent puzzle. The things that work we stick with.
Not only working hard,
but taking accountability to get results
We are highly target driven. From day one a lot of focus is placed on making sure individuals contribute true value to the business.
Not only community over cold calling,
but also giving back to the community
We are committed to investing time and money into the tech community as a way of building and developing relationships.
…and above all else, we value respect
We see respect as our main value. We believe that with mutual respect everything is effortless, but with disrespect things are impossible. We respect our clients and our colleagues.
RecWorks approach business in a lean, community-driven way, continuously refining its services from client and candidate feedback; inspired by tech business models and processes. Word of mouth and personal recommendations from our network continue to contribute to RecWorks’ impressive record of progressive, sustained growth in the London tech recruitment industry.
We ♥ community
RecWorks’ set up our first community, the LJC, to help us better understand developers and technologies, in order to develop a recruitment company that delivered what people really wanted. Our commitment to developing communities has proven that by building these for the greater good, the best candidates gravitate to us when they are seeking a new role. There is significant testimony in our groups that we are the good guys. This credibility is essential to us – it shapes everything that we do.
