Managed recruitment

Monday, March 15, 2021

In late 2015, Charlie Thompson approached James Procter to explain an exciting new business that he was opening early the following year. Charlie was launching The Massage Company and needed a recruitment partner who understood the franchise sector and who could develop a cost effective and professional solution for the business.

Each Massage Company franchise would need to recruit an opening team and then front line staff on a regular basis. James proposed a continuous attraction and screening strategy combined with the creation of a careers portal to ensure a strong pipeline of future Massage Company employees!  

With expert support from day one, each franchisee has successfully opened their business with a full team and hit the ground running! Costs are spread monthly to help cashflow and additional help and advice is always available. 5 years later and the partnership continues to grow with a new careers portal recently launched and new Massage Company sites due to open very soon!

Key success factors:

  • Ensuring the client was continually up to date with industry salary trends to help them remain competitive in the market
  • Utilising a broad, multi-channel attraction strategy to showcase the brand including managed careers page and social media
  • Consistent talent pooling in sites locality
