Meet the stars with the Y-Factor.
Is anything more important than recruiting and retaining talent? The right hire inspires others to achieve. A wrong decision can stifle progress. And the distance between the two is often paper-thin. Or rather, yocto-thin. Yocto, the smallest known measurement of length, is symbolic of all the little things we do that, when added together, make a huge impact. And along with Manchester United, Yocto is his passion. Whether building big-picture talent solutions that hire thousands or niche strategies to find the ‘needle in a haystack’, Jon loves the challenge of recruitment. He works with a great team who, from talent acquisition to onboarding, focus on marginal gains. In themselves they’re small details, but collectively, they’re the difference between success and failure.
Client Relationship Director
A few of James’ favourite things:
Listening, learning and sharing.
Working with amazing people – I’m lucky enough to have worked with many of the best in amazing organisations.
Bringing ideas to life – to attract the very best talent.
Making sure the right people are talking to each other – fulfilling your potential in a challenging market.
The diversity of recruitment, and the challenge that brings.
Variety – there’s no off the shelf blueprint that works for everyone.
Tailoring to you and your business needs.
Michael Hutchence – I had the honour of booking his driving lessons in my first ever job.
Client Relationship Director
RPO based on true partnership and a genuine understanding of your business: that’s the Yocto difference. We aren’t corporate and we won’t try and impose a model on you for our convenience. It’s about what’s best for you. We invest time in understanding your needs and she’s passionate about spending time with clients, listening and understanding to build up a picture of their business. It’s often the smallest details, gathered over a coffee that can make the biggest impact. As for Emma’s other passions, did we mention coffee?
Director of Resourcing Operations
Angela set up our recruitment delivery centre in Bristol, where she acquired a keen respect for the little things. Today she heads up volume recruitment and assessment and the Shared Service team that implements new Yocto solutions. She is responsible for service delivery in line with our clients’ Service Level Agreements and works closely with our Client Service Directors. Previously Angela worked for The AA, Capita, NTL, BT and Marks and Spencer in a broad range of operational roles. And our Angela is multi-talented. She was both happy and traumatised recently when invited to play for the Somerset mixed veterans tennis team. While it’s a privilege to represent the county, qualifying for the veterans at the tender age of 43 was something of a shock.
Head of Creative
Whether it’s a single communication or a global employer brand, Al’s focus is on delivering results. He will be guardian of your brand, ensuring that all communications do justice to your organisation and goals. He’ll also be your provocateur, pushing creativity to engage the audiences that matter. And if lead type’s your thing, you might like to know that Al’s the proud owner of a garageful.
