Tori’s a Recruiter?
Tori met with Matt an ex-colleague recently, and received some feedback that warmed our hearts.
They had worked together 15 years ago when Tori was an HR Generalist, and he was confused as to why she started a recruitment agency. In his own words, ‘you’re really honest, hard-working, and professional - all things that recruiters are not’.
Tori explained that we created Tomahawk to provide a genuine service at a reasonable price, as well as honour our clients AND our candidates. He really got it and qualified that his experience of Tomahawk is that it’s ‘refreshing’, because ‘it’s just awful out there. Recruiters don’t return your calls and don’t care about what you’re going through’. He found Tomahawk to be really authentic and even though many recruiters claim that they’re ‘ethical recruiters’, we actually live it.
Matt raised a valid point. What does ‘ethical recruitment’ mean to us? When it comes down to it, it’s simply that we treat people as we would like to be treated.
At Tomahawk, we have a set of guiding principles that shape everything we do:
Simplicity | Transparency | Efficiency | Partnership
We believe in a philosophy of 'no surprises' and being up front about everything we do including our fee-structure, which is clearly stated on our website.
Our measure of success is threefold:
We're selective with businesses we engage with by ensuring our values are aligned. Therefore, we love who we work with.
We walk a bigger walk than our talk. We deliver a personalised, boutique service, and provide an uncommon level of value that is beyond our customers' expectations.
Our customers AND our candidates have a positive experience of their journey with us.
Based on this, I'm happy to say Tomahawk Recruitment is a success.
However, as a Director of the business this is what I'm most proud of. In all my years I have not known a recruiter to receive unsolicited praise from unsuccessful candidates. Yet this happens to Tori on a regular basis.
And that right there is Ethical Recruitment.
