sunblink. Noun. (plural sunblinks) A glimpse or flash of the sun
Sunblink is here to help everyone recruit better and be that light that breaks up the cloudy recruitment space. From the way we free up experienced recruiters from the shackles of corporate recruitment agencies; to the way we enable forward thinking employers to spend less time and less money whilst enhancing their recruitment results; to how we support charities and non-profit organisations to allow them to utilise the latest recruitment techniques.
As part of this purpose, we’re genuinely putting people before profits – we are not interested in big corporations, we don’t care about high CEO salaries nor do we focus on PLC Shareholder dividends. We want to run our business ethically and openly and to improve the processes and recruitment results of the people we get to work with for the long term.
But how did we get to this point – why is it so important? The seeds of that story started a long time ago with Pete Marston, Jason Silk and Alice Carroll working together at a leading Global Recruitment company, before forming a new company in 2009 where Elliot House and Alex Newton entered the frame.
In 2019, with strong personal relationships developed between the team, as well as clearly shared values, conversation turned to how the recruitment industry had some ongoing issues and what could be done about it. These conversations led to the fact that all of us believed recruitment was a fantastic and vital industry, but the way it currently operated was outdated and needed a revolution.
With our original mix of marketing, operations, sales and recruiting skills, we realised that between us we could make it our mission to work with forward-thinking companies and people to help them recruit better, whilst also being able to give more of our time for free to those charities that really needed our skills.
And Sunblink was born…
