It’s recruitment… but not as you know it

We’re sure you’ve heard it all before… “we’re a recruitment agency, but we’re different” – but we really are. In fact, we’re so different – we’re the first of our kind, anywhere in the world.

Let’s put some facts on the table for you. Our unique service will get your recruitment-to-hire ratio from the dizzy heights of 12:1 right down to around 3:1. Imagine all that time that you’ve wasted in the past interviewing people that shouldn’t have made it through your door. All the hours mindlessly listening to candidates, knowing they’re not going to get the role but you feel you have to be polite and hear them out.

Now imagine instead, being able to get everything you planned to do in your day - done. Imagine being able to leave the office on time and have a life… and imagine a recruitment process that works so well, not only did you find the perfect candidate in record time – with no dramas and no fuss, but you’ve also found that elusive hidden diamond in the rough. A person that on paper, didn’t quite look the part – but once you met him (or her), they shone out more than you could ever have hoped.

We are Energon People. We’re the first technology recruiter in the UK to move entirely to video based assessment at the CV submission stage. Try our world beating service today and we guarantee, you’ll never look back.

We cover a broad range of roles including development, infrastructure, testing, software engineering, operations, change management, business analysis and sales & marketing – from junior roles, all of the way through to C-Level Execs.
