It's Our 1st Birthday!

Just 12 months ago we launched Chrysalis Recruitment Solutions offering bespoke recruitment solutions to businesses across the North West. Just 4 weeks later we opened our very first office in Chester City Centre and employed our first Senior Consultant, Victoria Clague. Our aim was always to do things differently to other recruiters in order to separate ourselves from thousands of other recruiters in the market along with being the best at what we do. Ultimately, the aim was to support clients & candidates in order for them both to truly evolve through professional and effective talent acquisition, placing the best candidates with the best organisations each and every time.

Well what a rollercoaster ride it has been, there’s been lots of up’s and naturally there have been downs but we have embraced the journey and cannot believe where we are after just 12 months. We launched video interviewing in January which gave us a real USP and has really separated us in the market as we now offer something that genuinely does save our clients time and money when recruiting. They no longer spend time interviewing unsuitable candidates,  The video software also saves candidates time so they no longer need to get time off work to register with us or attend first stage interviews, they complete the first stage video interview wherever they want and when they want which has now enabled us to service our clients UK wide.

We have embarked on several new ventures and partnerships to add value to the client and candidate journey, again in order to separate ourselves from being just a typical recruitment business. We have created some great client partnerships where we work with our clients to attract, recruit and retain the best candidates for their business. We tailor make the process for each client and support them from initial brief through to the on boarding of successful candidates. We work with our candidates in offering career advice, CV writing, preparing for interviews and even offering financial advice to ensure they make the right move for them, We are not just a “recruitment agency”, we do things differently and go above and beyond for every client and candidate we work with which is reflected in all the amazing reviews we have had over the last 12 months,

We are very fortunate to now be working with Chester Voluntary Action as our charity partner of the year whereby we will be working  closely with the team at CVA throughout 2018-2019 and will be supporting some of the amazing charities they work with through fundraising, volunteering along with helping where we can with their amazing Skill Share project. This is something we are all very passionate about both as a team and individually. Working with CVA enables us all to support local charities close to our hearts that really resonate with us. 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our wonderful clients for choosing to work with us, all of our candidates who we have helped to secure new roles or given advice for them to secure their dream role, to our amazing contacts who have supported us and to the Chrysalis Team who have believed in the core values of Chrysalis Recruitment Solutions and who live and breathe this dream with us each day.

So, what’s next for Chrysalis? Well we shall of course be celebrating this evening and again on Friday night at the CVA Charity Ball where we shall celebrate with the team, our amazing clients and those people who have been invaluable to us and a massive part of our journey over the last 12 months. After that, well let’s just say after that we will continue to separate ourselves from the rest of the industry. We have some very exciting plans for 2019 as we continue to evolve. Watch this space!
