School Engagement Employer Award - Finalists

In 2020 our Directors, Jodie and Chris and our Andy (our new Recruitment Partner) became Enterprise Advisors to help local schools and colleges engage with businesses in order to develop their careers programs.

Throughout the last year they have all worked with Oxfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership (OxLEP Skills) and the local schools and colleges to:

  • Participate in both face to face (Pre pandemic) and virtual mock interviews with students from various schools
  • Provide on line presentations on soft skills to students and course representatives
  • Provide free CV advice and writing services to students approaching graduation
  • Introduced careers leaders to businesses around Oxfordshire through networking
  • Ensured all students throughout Oxfordshire would have access to free CV and interview guidance throughout 2021 through participation in the 'Find your Future' virtual careers platform

Enabling Jodie and Chris to work with the schools, and to take the time to create and provide the content has been a real team effort, and everyone at The Burford Recruitment Company were delighted to be nominated for the ‘School Engagement Employer Award’ by OxLEP at this years' Oxfordshire Apprentice Awards.

The School Engagement Employer Award is a new award created to "recognise organisations that have exceeded normal standards and expectations in engaging with local schools and colleges to inspire the next generation".

Following the Awards Committee meeting, The Burford Recruitment Company has been selected as one of the three School Engagement Employer Award finalists...

  • The Burford Recruitment Company
  • Morgan Sindall Construction & Infrastructure Ltd
  • Pearson

The Oxfordshire Apprenticeship Awards 2021 take place on May 6th 2021.

WOBA WINNERS – Cally Robson Award 2020

WOBA WINNERS – Cally Robson Award 2020

Four years ago, when we were preparing to launch the business, we had a conversation about what we wanted to achieve in the first 5 years. Many of the things we spoke about have now been achieved. We have steadily grown, moved into our own office, employed our first member of staff, and importantly remained profitable. However, the very first thing on our founder Jodie’s list was to win a West Oxfordshire Business Award (WOBA)…

A number of our clients, and many of the best and well regarded businesses in West Oxfordshire are either previous winners or have been involved in the awards in some other way during the 10 years they have been running, whether that is through sponsoring  an award or being part of the WOBA judging team.

We were therefore really excited to be finalists this year in not one, but two categories (New Business Award and Micro Business Award). The virtual awards ceremony took place on Friday afternoon, and I have to admit we were disappointed not to take either of those awards home.

That disappointment was short lived however and we were delighted (and stunned as you will see if you watch the video clip below!) to be presented with the prestigious Cally Robson Award! This award in particular is incredibly special for a number of reasons…

The Cally Robson Award commemorates an inspirational former member of the WOBA Team. It is not an award that you can enter, this award is presented by the WOBA judges to the finalist that best represents the WOBA values of entrepreneurship, innovation, and a sense of community. With so many great businesses in the finals to be recognised in this way was just amazing.

I would recommend that any business in the West Oxfordshire area should get involved in the WOBAs when they return in 2022 (after 10 years they are having a year off). I certainly hope that there will be an opportunity for us to contribute going forwards in some capacity.

Flexible Recruitment for our Clients

Flexible Recruitment Solutions in a Changing Market

Whatever your need, we have the recruitment model to suit your business...

I am sure that we have all heard the expression "we are all in the same boat" when it comes to Covid-19 but that just isn't the case! We may all be bobbing about in the same storm, but each boat is a different shape and size, with a different cargo and crew...

Whatever the size and shape of your business, it is likely that the economic consequences of the lockdown have impacted in some way, and with the economy likely to take some time to recover, businesses are going to need to to be agile in order to maximise their opportunities and not only survive but thrive!

With this in mind, we have developed a number of flexible recruitment models designed to make it easy for our clients to increase their headcount when they need to, whilst minimising any risk...

 

PERMANENT & CONTRACT RECRUITMENT

Like any business,  we too want to reduce our risk in the current times, so in addition to our standard terms for contingent recruitment services (competition with other agencies), we are introducing 2 new models that provide outstanding value for money and a win win for ourselves and our clients...

 

The Partnership Model - Our partnership terms provide a significantly reduced fee %, as well as monthly payment options (at 0% interest), helping minimise cost and cash flow concerns). They also include an extended rebate scheme, in exchange for exclusivity on vacancies for an agreed period.

 

The Retained Model - For companies needing more support in the overall recruitment process, clients can choose the retained model, and have access to their own internal recruitment team from as little as £250 a month. Your dedicated Recruitment Partner can assist you or your Hiring Managers with job description creation and salary bench marking as well as creating and managing recruitment campaigns, and supporting the interview and offer process, making recruiting the perfect addition to your team easy.

TEMPORARY RECRUITMENT

To assist those clients who require additional cover, but do not know how long that might be for, or perhaps just want to try before they buy, we are now able to support our clients with a full temporary recruitment service on a weekly or monthly time-sheet/invoice basis. Our Office & Professional, Marketing & Creative, and Accountancy & Finance specialists will ensure that they find you the right fit for your team, even if you only require them for a week.
