“Above all else, it makes my life easy. It works fast, and prevents that awkward, very un-British process of haggling over fees. I only wish I’d had the idea myself.” Andrew, Commercial Director

A leading force in workplace management, Amaryllis Group has developed a unique portfolio of products and services for its public and private sector clients, who include: British Airways, Royal Mail, DVLA, Transport for London, BT, Post Office, and HM Revenue & Customs. Amaryllis employs over 250 people in the UK, with offices in Birmingham, Bristol, Chelmsford, Livingstone, Swansea and Whitstable.

Commercial Director, Andrew Papps, registered with Hiring Hub in 2012 and has since used the online recruitment marketplace on a number of occasions to help fill varying roles across departments at Amaryllis Group, including: sales, account management, procurement, and operations.

“We set our fees dependent on the vacancy and what sector its in,” said Andrew. “We take advice from our Hiring Hub account manager but we’re generally fixing the fee at somewhere around 15% of the candidate’s starting salary. At that level we seem to get a good – and very quick – response from specialist recruitment agencies.

“Having used the website regularly over the past couple of years, in my experience the team at Hiring Hub have always been incredibly helpful, responsive, and professional in all aspects of the recruitment process.

“It’s great that we have a dedicated account manager who acts as a single point of contact for us. We have their direct dial and it means we can get messages out to the recruitment agencies we approve to work on our vacancies quickly. It definitely speeds up the recruitment process while saving me time.

“And that’s what makes Hiring Hub such an attractive proposition to us. Above all else, it makes my life easy. It works fast, takes away the process of having to search for a specialist recruitment agency, and prevents that awkward, very un-British process of haggling over fees – I only wish I’d had the idea myself.”
