Can't speak highly enough of James Hall @ EMBS Talent. In the dark days of furlough and then redundancy James found me a fantastic job just before my last day at work. I have since been working as a contractor through EMBS for 8 months (now to be made a permanent position). In all this time, James and his team have kept me up to date and in the loop as to my standing within my placement. Thankyou so much! 10/10 and good luck for the future. I would definitely recommend this company.

06 The pursuit of happiness!

Now for something completely different…

Are you feeling frustrated in your current role? Do you work in sales or recruitment and fancy a change?

Do you want to find a more positive and fulfilling career where everyone in your team cares about what they do, works collaboratively and with a common purpose? Perhaps it’s time to talk to us about joining our team?

Everyone in our team has the same vision and shares the same values, both professionally and personally. As a people business, it’s essential to be authentic, empathetic, caring, open, and positive. This creates a positive culture that gets results and achieves success, for everyone. We’re not fixated on ‘winning’, this would suggest the game has an end. It’s never over, it’s infinite and it’s this mindset that sets us apart from others in the recruitment industry; where they believe that size means more than quality and where high growth is a badge of honour, that satisfies the shareholders but rarely the employees who are often treated as commodities.

It is clear that huge improvements can be made within the recruitment industry and due to our new, unique service offerings, we are able to solve all talent problems and cannot wait to shake things up in 2021. If you wish to be a part of our vision, our future and dare to be different, join us in the pursuit of happiness.
