I am thrilled to announce that as of March 11th 2013, my recruitment business CloudNine will merge with the Angela Mortimer Group.
I have spent 3 years forming a respected reputation within the social media and digital communications talent network – as an integral participant within the fast growing niche industry – and as a recruiter who puts people-based outcome values ahead of the more widespread sales methodology amongst the recruitment industry. Having built a business model entirely based on social media and marketing communications, CloudNine is seen as an ‘acceptable face’ of recruitment within its progressive field. I’m proud of that, and that will remain the core of our ethics and method.
The move to align with Angela Mortimer is one that allows CloudNine to benefit from working with the extensive client network of the Angela Mortimer group companies, and particularly with partnership with Marketing & Media recruitment specialists Pathfinders – who are thrilled to gain the benefit of our social recruiting knowledge and the extensive network. I will work closely with Wendy Duprey and Sue McLelland; joint Managing Directors of Pathfinders; to fulfil a recruitment presence across the integrated marketing and communications mix.
Why did I choose the Angela Mortimer Group? Well quite simple they are a super high-quality outfit with a 37 year history of delivering recruitment services to an unbelievably high level. The core standards of excellence are a no-brainer to be connected with and as a former employee, I have seen first-hand the fantastic culture and collaborative structure.
CloudNine will retain its personality, style and methodology. On the face of it, there will be little difference in the operation of CloudNine, other than having a solid office base with AM Group in their West End London offices in Golden Square; plus the hiring of a Community Manager and a new Recruiter to be integral to CloudNine’s planned growth.
Beyond that, the plan is to take CloudNine into fast developing digital markets overseas – with Amsterdam, Paris, Dublin, Berlin and Dubai on the agenda.
It’s exciting times, and will allow us to be even better at what we do. We will be based from the offices in Soho, but will retain the mobility which has always been a cornerstone of our accessibility to jobseekers at their convenience.
I trust we will get to do better things for you, because of this new opportunity.
