Peach Personnel Services Ltd - Amanda Russell

TEAM had been recommended to us by two different recruitment companies but to be totally honest I only picked up the phone to call Tricia when I needed to renew some job board subscriptions, as I knew one of the benefits of being a TEAM member was discounted rates. However Tricia was not content just to let me join, take she convinced me of the importance of attending the TEAM quarterly meeting. To be honest I was a bit sceptical as to the benefits but was pleasantly surprised. Existing members talked positively of the benefits of sharing business – unheard of in a world where one recruiter doesn’t usually trust another as far as they can throw them. We had a group discussion on each table which was just normal & honest & there was also a great guest speaker, Jeremy Snell of Zero Entropy who was really motivational & challenged alot of the norms, which was really interesting.

Tricia then came to our offices to meet two of our Permanent Consultants & the shared business subject came up again – neither of them were totally convinced but we had taken a specialist vacancy from a long standing client of ours’ which we were struggling to fill. Immediately Tricia recommended Nick Reeves at Burnham Resources. Being new to this didn’t matter – he talked us through everything – a fee was agreed & that was that. He put forward one candidate who we met & put forward to our client & 2 weeks later an offer was made & accepted. Everyone’s happy, a few are surprised & a £4,050 fee is being split.

We have only been members for little over a month but already the annual subscription fee has been more than covered by the job board discounts & the split fee but to be honest it’s not about that – I just think you’ll get out of TEAM what you’re prepared to put in.
