UK Enterprise 2020

124 | UK Enterprise Awards 2020 Recruitment is one of the most difficult aspects of building a business, but when done right, creates the perfect partnership between employee and employer. The team at membershipbespoke have years of experience in the field, dedicating themselves to recruitment excellence in a number of different sectors. We profile the firm in the light of its award-winning success. Most Dedicated Specialist Recruitment Organisation of the Year 2020 Jun20546 Based in the heart of the City of London, the team at membershipbespoke play a crucial part in the employment game. Their tireless tenacity has allowed them to thrive in a market that respects hard work and good results. membershipbespoke was established in 2012 by Daniel Goddard and Dennis Howes with the intention of providing a specialist service to clients who often found that they had poor matches for the roles on offer. As a result, all of the clients that are supported by membershipbespoke are Professional Bodies, Regulatory Bodies, Trade Associations, Trade Unions and Political Parties. This sort of work is incredibly specialised, and requires a particular type of candidate to succeed. The company’s driving ethos is one driven by pace, passion, insight and integrity. While these factors have pushed the company forward since its earliest days, the formalisation of the policy has helped to guide membershipbespoke to even greater heights. As it specialises in a specific sector, the team can offer clients real value and an incredible insight into what sort of employee will enhance their business. What sets the team apart is its longevity in the businesses. Few other recruitment firms, working in the same specialist area, can claim to have been around for so long with such success. Since the company was first founded, the two directors have been the main point of contact for clients. Moving forward, this won’t change at all. It allows clients to develop long standing relationships with the team that enhance their recruitment techniques. For them, client and candidate service are the top priority. membershipbespoke know their clients’ businesses inside and out, meaning that they can find the perfect fit for any organisation. Many recruitment firms cannot offer this kind of service, and they have a high turnover rate with changing account managers. Consistency plays a big role in the team’s continued success. To support the team in this consistent approach, the use of industry leading CRM is vital. This allows them to stay in touch in a structured and targeted way, thus giving the team an advantage over the competition. Of course, the effects of COVID-19 have had a major impact on the recruitment sector in general, essentially putting the sector into hibernation for the last four months. Now, as the new normal becomes clearer and people get back to a regular sort of work, activity is beginning to pick up. One of the steadier revenue streams that has been able to support the firm throughout the crisis has been the temp division, with many businesses looking for someone to offer support during the pandemic. While the economy has taken a downturn, the team at membershipbespoke has already put plans into place to ensure it survives and thrives in the future. These plans will see the team come out of this crisis in a better position than it held previously. Of course, the team have ideas for growth and when the recruitment sector settles down, they will begin work on the specific brands they operate. These are membershipbespoke which offers contingent recruitment up to £90k salaries, membership interim, which provides interim and contract roles, membershipleaders, a place where senior roles can be found and the currently thriving membershiptemps which links clients and candidates with temporary work at all levels. In all, membershipbespoke provides a vital service to organisations who would otherwise struggle to fill essential positions within their teams. Their attention to detail is exemplary, and why they have managed to achieve such success for so many years. Company: membershipbespoke Name: Daniel Goddard and Dennis Howes Web Address:
