Emerald Starfish welcomes new recruit

September 22nd 2017

Recruitment experts Emerald Starfish welcomed a new face at the beginning of September, when Jen Macdonald (right) joined the team.

Jen has more than 15 years’ experience and knowledge in external and internal recruitment, across a variety of business sectors. Caroline Hunt, Director of Emerald Starfish, said: “We’re delighted to be expanding the team. Jen will allow us to offer our outsourced recruitment services to more clients across the East Midlands.”

Emerald Starfish provides a professional and streamlined way for growing businesses to attract and engage the right candidates. “Recruitment is often seen as a necessary evil”, said Caroline. “It’s something our clients need to do but often don’t have the time to dedicate to it when they’re running their own business.”

Caroline pointed out that using an agency can be costly and often doesn’t produce the desired results because consultants aren’t invested in the business.

Emerald Starfish is different. “We act as an in-house recruitment team on behalf of clients, so we can co-ordinate the whole campaign. This frees them up to concentrate on running their business. Best of all, we only charge for the time we work on a client’s recruitment. Our service is charged at a fixed fee of £1,950 plus advertising costs per role.”

The team also offers headhunting for specialist or hard-to-fill roles, interview support and psychometric assessments, all charged according to what is needed.
