Excelerate Resources has been supporting the drinks industry in finding people for over 15 years and prior to that, I have a career in drinks that goes back further. Clearly, like everybody in the industry, we have not seen conditions like these before and things need to change to meet them.
The future will have to be different and to change business models to respond, the industry will need new and different people in new roles. Given the recent trading conditions, the very last thing many businesses will be in a position to do is to resource such a process internally, or be inclined to pay fees no matter how exemplary the service or essential the task.
We have changed our business model, therefore, to allow businesses to take on talent whether for project, part-time or full-time roles on a fee-free basis. The objective being to get someone into a job and contributing.
If there is someone who meets your requirements on our database, then that appointment will be entirely free, as we have built a relationship with that individual often over several years, and we would want to see them in a role. You can see some of the candidate’s currently looking, by visiting our ‘shop window’ – https://www.excelerateresources.co.uk/shop-window.aspx. There you will find brief anonymised descriptions which may highlight their willingness to work on a full or project basis. Then let us have a description of the opportunity and we will put it to a specific individual if you find one, or to the database in general, and share the response.
If we cannot meet your requirements and move to finding someone using our in-house research team, any appointment will remain fee-free for the first three months, allowing for a true test and trial. To further aid cash flow, there will then be a 10% of base salary applied, with a further 5% at six months.
Alongside this, we are pleased through partnering with Smart Recruit, an award winning recruitment software provider, to be able to offer a suite of other service provisions, including your own individual recruitment website to manage all levels of recruitment, again fee-free. In addition I am very pleased to have renewed my relationship with the Predictive Index, https://www.predictiveindex.com/ – who are one of the longest established and well respected psychometric testing platforms with a whole range of additional services to help you get the best out of your teams and ensure they’re aligned to the challenges ahead.
We’re old-fashioned in that we do like meeting face-to-face and would be happy to travel to discuss any issues you may have and how we can help short-term or of course be happy to jump on a Zoom call.
All the very best to you all during this difficult rebuilding period and the challenges ahead.
