Paulo Freire, Pedagogy of the Oppressed
Radical Recruit is pioneering a recruitment revolution - a movement which excites, agitates and shakes things up within the recruitment industry. With over 100 years of lived and professional experience in the recruitment and social service industries, our founders and team of expert advisors are radically changing the fundamental nature of mainstream recruitment services.
We are an innovative social recruitment consultancy. We employ a values led approach to sourcing talent and represent those who are underrepresented in the labour market; working exclusively with disadvantaged candidates from marginalised communities.
People from these marginalised communities have enormous potential but the sad reality is that their potential is overlooked because they are viewed through a lens of mistrust; perceived as antisocial or lacking skills to secure and sustain meaningful paid employment. Subsequently, our candidates are refused access to the labour market and discarded on a talent scrap heap; denied the opportunity to become contributing and valued members of society.
This is a waste of life. This is bad for business. This is detrimental to the UK economy.
Radical Recruit bridges the gap between this untapped pool of talent and the business world. We simultaneously deploy our business mind and community heart to facilitate the leap, from the rhetoric of diversity, equality and inclusion, to action.
Action that manifests in authentic, diverse, equitable and inclusive business practice.
Action that transforms the lives of individuals from marginalised communities.
Action that prevents children and young people from going into care.
Action that reduces homelessness.
Action that decreases crime and re-offending.
Action that alleviates poverty including in-work poverty.
Action that addresses the inequity of opportunity faced by young people from ethnic minorities.
Action that recognises the skills obtained in service of country by returned veterans.
Action that celebrates difference of ability.
Action that dismantles the systems and structures which render our candidates powerless.
