One of Huddersfield’s newest recruitment agencies – formed just six months ago – has appointed a recruitment resourcer to support its rapidly growing clients in a buoyant job market.

Red Diamond Recruitment – sister company to Red Diamond Headhunters – was launched in May 2021 by founders Emma and Simon Robinson, after seeing a mounting demand for traditional recruitment services within its existing client base.

Whilst a headhunter focuses on seeking out senior candidates such as directors and CEOs who are ‘hard to find’ and already in a specialised role, traditional recruiters will match jobs to active job seekers.

Having turned away recruitment enquiries in the past, Emma and Simon decided the time was right to launch a new arm of the business to support the UK’s jobs market – which has 1.1 million vacancies.

Just six months since its formation, Charlie Jacobs joins Red Diamond Recruitment to assist the team’s recruiters by identifying skills that match vacancies, whilst sourcing and selecting candidates. He joins the team headed by general manager, Carol Mosby, who has 20 years’ experience in recruitment.

Carol said: “During my career there has never been a jobs market like there is today. In the three months between August and October, job vacancies rose by approximately 500,000 to 1.1 million – a record high.

“We are determined to do our bit for the economy by placing quality candidates in the roles we are recruiting for our clients.

“Even as a small but growing team, we work with multi-billion-pound, global companies and we’re seeing first-hand the positive strides the UK is making towards fiscal recovery.

“The job market is a good indication of the strength of the economy. As it stands, unemployment is barely above its pre-pandemic rate, even after the end of the Government’s furlough scheme.

“We’re proud to play a small part in keeping the jobs market moving, and we’re delighted to have Charlie on the team – who is full of energy and enthusiasm – to enhance our client and candidates’ journeys.”

Charlie added: “I am pleased to have the opportunity to join a forward-thinking, entrepreneurial company – I cannot wait to learn and progress in my role at Red Diamond Recruitment.”

Emma Robinson said: “Charlie is just starting out in his career with us but we are passionate about training our junior staff up to senior level whilst enriching the recruitment industry, and we look forward to him being part of the team for years to come.”
