A new recruitment consultancy ‘with a twist’

Business | Press | News

Could this be the start of something a little different for Cambridgeshire?

Just launched is SW1 Concierge4You, a uniquely combined recruitment and concierge consultancy – and the only one of its kind – offering its services across the whole of Cambridgeshire.

With the mission to ‘connect the right people together’ and the backing of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC), SW1 Concierge4You has stepped into the market to help its clients achieve a work and life balance by offering them recruitment services to help them in their working lives and concierge services to help them manage and maintain their personal lives.

Says Breda Walsh of SW1 Concierge4You: “Now is the right time for us to launch a fresh, vibrant consultancy into the market and offer quality services whilst upholding what we intend to be high standards to clients and candidates alike. We are confident there is currently a clear gap in the market for us and believe we are in a position to maximise this opportunity for SW1 Concierge4You to establish itself as a key quality operator in and around Cambridgeshire and, later (over the next 5 years), to franchise its Cambridgeshire model out to a further 25 geographical areas throughout the UK”.

Recent research by SW1 Concierge4You has established a definite need for commercial and interim management recruitment and concierge services in Cambridgeshire, which is based on quality of service, rather than low pricing structure. Clients are likely to pay for a better quality permanent and temporary recruitment and concierge service and candidates are likely to be attracted to work with such a uniquely offering consultancy.

During the recent recession, many recruitment and concierge agencies succumbed to pressure to negotiate their fees and, as a result, their standards of service suffered. They are now struggling to raise fees and their credibility with clients is compromised, especially amongst some independent agencies. Prior to the downturn, these agencies maintained a strong hold on the local market and key to this was the quality of service they provided. Whilst the larger agencies tended to concentrate mainly on national accounts with the large, blue chip organisations, these independents were very successful at attracting and keeping the smaller clients. This is no longer the case and these smaller agencies appear to have lost their focus, which is where the opportunity for SW1 Concierge4You exists.

SW1 Concierge4You aims to work across clients ranging from individuals, to start ups and SMEs, all the way up to larger organisations. The consultancy will cater for all types of industries and sectors based in and around Cambridgeshire and is currently focusing its efforts on recruiting for suitable candidates it hopes to offer temporary, contract and/or permanent positions.

Breda Walsh continues: “More than anything, we are keen to create jobs and new career opportunities for people living and working in Cambridgeshire. We hope to do this by offering our candidates a wide array of interesting roles across commercial recruitment, interim executive and management and also lifestyle management. There are many busy people out there who could use a PA at the office as well as a PA combined butler and travel agent in their personal lives. We are striving to help make clients’ lives easier by offering them suitable, talented, experienced workers across both areas of their lives – work and life”.
