Hello. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
I look around our very nice offices just North of Bury St Edmunds in beautiful Suffolk and view the eclectic bunch that work here at Redfox. No one is boss. Some would say no-one is in control! I seem to be warming my feet on not one but two snoring Labradors (father and son duo) and appear to be in my socks today as I forgot my shoes…well it is a very wet welly day today.
Please don’t think of us all at Redfox as a corporate beast in any shape or form. No ties or 360 degree feedbacks here. But please think of us as utterly professional and at the top of our game when it comes to those that work with us to find new career enhancing roles and those clients who deploy us to find “winners” to accelerate the growth of their businesses.
We are a small team working in the niche sector of recruitment of agri-business and fresh foods with clients all over the place from down the road in Suffolk and then stretching all the way to Australia, Cape Town and even over to Western Canada. We have worked with some of our clients for over 18 years and have been pivotal in sourcing them key individuals to take their businesses from being proverbial minnows to over a billion-euro turnover and operating in three continents. We source Grads to mid Management to Board level individuals on a UK and International basis.
Have a gallop through this website to get a feel of what we do and the sort of roles we handle. See some of the award winning initiatives we have set up to promote fresh produce awareness and consumption like this link – www.thegreatfruitadventure.com And have a look at our VLOG series that has now rattled past over ½ million views – https://redfoxexecutive.com/blog/
Why I’m I writing this and why are you reading this?! We have seen a few business cycles over the years and with age and experience (not intellect!) you get to sniff out the downside of a business cycle. Likewise, you get a feel for when things are starting to maybe prosper. With the majority result of the recent UK General election and the fact that fresh foods is bang on message be it on a healthy connotation or a steer away from meat consumption to consuming more fresh fruit and veg, we are already anticipating that our clients will be looking to increase their management teams to ride that wave of increased fresh food popularity and consumption.
Where do you fit in to all of this? We are looking for one or maybe two individuals to join us on a full time or part-time/flexi basis to assist us with that anticipated new recruitment work from our client base. I suppose we need a role title to assist the conversation…so we would say “Recruitment Consultant” on a form. Hopefully you are getting a feel for it already. This is working with our great clients to find them great people using our amazing marketing (I do the marketing!) and our database systems and our extensive industry networks.
Ideally, we would love for you to have a recruitment or commercial background and it would be amazing if that was in the fresh food sectors or similar already. Being self-organized, determined, great with all types of people is key. As is being relatively proficient on IT for using our websites, databases and social media marketing platforms. The fit is key with this position. We don’t micromanage (remember I forgot my shoes today) and we will assist in every way we can to get you up and running and settled in and settled in for the long term with us all. Like you we want continuity ongoing and to have fun at work! We spend enough time at work and not enough time on Planet Earth so lets all enjoy it all while we are here.
If you believe that our pretty random and unique business may be of interest to you please ping over a copy of your CV via this website and feel free to tell us what you think you can bring to us. Please note that we cannot make this a home working position as you need to be in the office to be inflicted with my tea making skills. When we review your details and see an initial match, we would be very keen to get you on site to meet the team and we can take it all from there. I promise to remember my shoes for when we meet.
Want to join us and enjoy one of the most vibrant recruitment sectors to be involved with being fresh food?! Send us your details via our website or call myself Max MacGillivray on 01284 715055. And our database loves a number…but that would not be you, you would be more than a name to us. Ref: 5261M
