A Resourcing Partner built for a very different future!
Set up during the turmoil of Covid-19, we’re a fundamentally different kind of resource partner built for what will be a fundamentally different future. There simply is no point in working with a resourcing partner who doesn’t recognise how the world of work is changing.
But what truly makes our company different?
I entered recruitment 22 years ago and hit the ground running – becoming a top performer and then a Cost Centre Manager for SThree. But after a few years I decided to train as an Executive Coach and ended up founding one of the UK’s most successful recruitment training consultancies – training 10,000 recruiters and 3,000 managers globally in the process. For better or worse, many of the recruiters you will have spoken to were trained by me!
But then, as it has for many, Covid-19 slowed everything down and gave me an opportunity to stop and think. And some ideas that had been floating around in my mind suddenly came together.
I could see that Microsoft Partners with huge potential to grow were being held back by the way resourcing worked – it had put them into a catch-22 situation.
We found that to win new projects they needed to demonstrate technical expertise, yet it is too risky to hire without knowing projects are secured. Some Partners are looking to trial new services such as Cloud migration. Yet it is too risky to hire FTEs until success is proven.
Some partners just need expertise but on a part time basis rather than long term contracts and finding 'part-time' consultants isn't always easy.
Agility on Demand is built to address these common resource issues faced by professional services leaders.
We offer a bench model unlike any other competitor. From our ‘Flexi Bench’ which gives you contractors for as little as a day a week, to our ‘Ready Bench’ which gives you the resource you need to win bids or trial new services, this model offers agility at low risk where it’s needed most.
I’m also proud to say that we work to fixed margins which are transparent and agreed up front. Knowing the industry inside-out, I recognise that recruiters typically say they’ll ‘work to a budget’, but the client or contractor rarely know the margin – so I’m doing it differently.
This transparent approach has already helped me to bring some partners on board, and I’m looking forward to supporting more ambitious businesses in the future.
What else makes us tick?
We have a laser focus on a niche market. We only work with Microsoft Gold, Silver and Cloud Partners, and the talent in our network have only worked with these partners too. This means you can trust our resource to represent your brand with clients and hit the ground running from day 1 with minimal supervision.
When you partner with us, you’ll get our undivided attention, focused expertise, and access to exactly the right people, on demand.
Partner with an expert
I’m a qualified Executive Coach – someone who truly understands the ins and outs of how to find, train and develop brilliant teams.
I’m a Master Practitioner in NLP, a qualified facilitator of nine psychometric tools – and I’ve been running leadership, team dynamics and behavioural change programmes for 19 years, all over the world.
My career is built on extensive resourcing knowledge and a deep understanding of what makes people tick. I believe combining this skill set gives us a very unique proposition.
Our ethos is 'people before profit' and I’m absolutely certain that our partners will win as a result of this client centric approach.
