Warner Recruitment is a Finance and Accounting recruitment agency based in Northampton. Working in partnership with local job seekers and business across Northamptonshire, they specialise in temporary, permanent and contract positions in the Finance and Accounting sector.
The business was founded in June 2020 by director Julie Warner. Julie has been recruiting Finance and Accounting professionals across Northamptonshire since 2006. As the business grew, Haydon Warner joined the company in June 2021 as Recruitment Director. Over the last 9 months, the company has taken on staff and currently has 9 employees.
As a business that was created during the first COVID-19 lockdown, the company initially ran virtually from home using Teams and Zoom. The company invested time into their social media presence and the creation of video content to promote the company and its services, “This was a great way to present and promote Warner Recruitment, especially when travel and face-to-face meetings were restricted.”
Warner Recruitment successfully applied for the Additional Restrictions Grant, funded by UK Government, distributed through West Northamptonshire Council and managed by the University of Northampton, to support the business throughout the pandemic. Despite being Haydon’s first grant application, he found that the process was “clear and simple. I was provided good guidance on my application; this was very helpful.” Haydon also noted that the ‘quick response was great when making plans on the construction of the new website.” Receiving the grant has enabled the company to continue investment into digital marketing; an area which became significant to their business during the lockdowns. Warner Recruitment have used the funding to create two short professional films to be used ‘front and centre’ of the new company website which will launch in June 2022.
Business Adviser, Paul Smith commented: “Working with this client was very refreshing as they were very open to advice and guidance throughout the process.”
It is an exciting time for Warner Recruitment as they look to establish themselves across Northamptonshire as the leading agency for Finance and Accounting recruitment. They are looking to grow their team and invest in ‘state of the art’ digital technology to allow them to offer a premium service to clients and candidates.
