Our recruiters at SThree know they are changing people’s lives every day and with this knowledge they are driving change through recruitment and changing people’s perceptions of the wider industry.
Everyone who works in recruitment knows or will certainly realise after no time at all that this job is not about money, it’s about people and building relationships. Someone who knows this just too well, is Stescha Burks, Associate Account Manager at Progressive, part of Specialist Staffing Group, the US division of SThree plc, in Houston.
We know how important it is to support our people in their need for a flexible working arrangement. As an employer we want to give them a say over how, where or when they work. We talked to Danny Young, Senior Sales Team Manager for SThree brand Computer Futures in Bristol and father of two boys, about how he’s balancing his career and his life outside the office.
The recruitment industry offers a world of excitement and opportunity, no two days are the same. Our Huxley and Global Enterprise Partners teams in Belgium and The Netherlands respectively know all too well the passion and purpose that comes with working in recruitment.
What sets SThree apart from our competitors is our meritocratic approach and the willingness to match our people’s ambitions. We offer the opportunities for you to seize! Someone who took advantage of everything SThree can offer, climbed the ranks, and moved countries and industries is our newly appointed Chief Operating Officer, Justin Hughes.
To the outside world, a job as a Recruitment Consultant is often met with the misconception that you just “match candidates to a role” and then move on to the next one. David Hitchings, a Consultant at SThree brand Computer Futures in London, explains why recruitment is much more than a ‘match-making’ service – it’s all about relationships.
Back in December 2014, our US team pledged to raise $100k and put it towards the new SOS Children’s Roosevelt Square Village Community Center in Chicago. We’re delighted to announce that we’ve now reached this target thanks to our employees' generous contributions and inspiring initiatives.
Recently, Workingmums held a roundtable event and we were invited to attend, thanks to our consistent work on inclusion in recruitment. A number of diversity and recruitment experts gathered round to discuss a number of issues that were faced including: family support, women’s career progression, and flexible working.
Today we join the world in celebrating International Women’s Day. This year’s theme is #BeBoldForChange; the idea behind this is to encourage individuals and organisations to share what bold actions they have taken or are planning to take to help progress gender parity around the world.
