Hope started operating in 2013 and we had a lot of positions that we needed to fill. We initially relied on recruitment agencies and did a little bit of our own direct advertising, but wanted to explore more cost effective recruitment methods. We decided to try some “erecruiters” to see how they could help. Ortolan were by far the best and also the most cost effective of the suppliers that we tried and we now ask for their help with virtually all of our external recruitment needs, because they provide a very personal and tailored service and have people, rather than computers, working on their candidate searches and short lists. Using Ortolan has significantly reduced our expenditure on attracting candidates, but has also meant that we have had a much broader range of people applying to work for us than before. I’d highly recommend trying Ortolan to see how they can help you.Peter Spargo, HR Manager Hope Construction Materials Ltd
I am a solicitor who – as well as having had a 10 year career as a British Army officer – has also run a number of successful businesses. I have worked in large law firms, small start-up businesses and have been the CEO of a NASDAQ listed international leisure company. Drawing on this broad base of experience I co-founded Ortolan Group in 2007, driven by the opportunity to provide innovative and high quality recruitment services at a sensible price point. Today I help to manage the business and also spend a lot of time working as a solicitor with our sister company, Ortolan Legal. Because of my background, I tend to lead on all of our legal recruitment work. I occupy my spare time raising Tamworth pigs and flying.
Having spent most of my working life in Recruitment and HR, I sold my successful Recruitment Business in 2009 to a large national High Street agency. Having missed the recruitment industry too much to stay away! I joined Ortolan in 2013 and I now head up their Permanent Recruitment Division. I live in Cheshire with my husband and unruly pack of 4 very large dogs, and as I don’t work Mondays love to spend long weekends out and about in the countryside with the dogs, and ever so occasionally shopping for handbags and shoes!
After attaining an engineering degree and working for British Gas designing distribution systems, I had a change of career and joined British Aerospace as a computer programmer. I then spent twenty years working for major IT solutions vendors in a range of roles (product and sales support, professional services, technical management), before I had my next change of career into recruitment in 2008, when I moved from South East to Derbyshire. In my spare time I like to explore the Peak District, then reward myself with a pub lunch!
