Recruitment Business celebrates 2 year anniversary

Two years ago, Ellis Mason braved the economy and made the leap from employment to running their own recruitment business. The journey has been an immensely positive one but both Directors will be the first to admit that it hasn’t been without its challenges (#brexit).

Business owner, Emma Ellis comments: “Recruiting is always a challenge and so I’m not sure that starting a recruitment business at any other time would have been any easier. The biggest challenge we face at present, is finding good people. Unemployment is at an all-time low and businesses are thriving, both are incredible things, but it means that the available job seekers pool is increasingly reduced. Businesses are having to work harder to attract the best candidates, salaries and benefits are slowly increasing and companies are making offers to candidates as soon as they leave the building – sometimes before! It’s putting pressure onto other businesses to move quickly and pressure on to us to work faster and increase our advertising spend”.

Despite the challenges they have faced, Ellis Mason achieved their business goals throughout 2018 and impressively celebrated 100% growth in their first year. They have expanded their disciplines in order to support their clients in all aspects of their business and are establishing a reputation as a recruiter of ‘Unicorns’.

Despite only having created the business two years ago, Ellis Mason have partnered with over 50 local businesses and brands, to find them top talent.

“I am unbelievably proud of what we have achieved. Having owned a business before, I know how long it can take for a business to become the business that people come to. To have that already and to have the loyal and established relationships that we have, and are building, I’m not only proud, but also touched and incredibly grateful” says Luke Mason, Director.

Ellis Mason undoubtedly won’t be resting on their laurels in 2019. On top of looking to double the amount of businesses they partner with locally to over 100, they need to fight the tides and uncertainty of what lies behind Brexit and are looking to achieve another year of growth.
