When two local leaders in recruitment join forces, the result is a positive for Hunter-based businesses looking for great employees.
Gail Whipper from Whipper Recruitment and Kate Grob from Savvy Staff have come together under the Whipper Recruitment name.
Even though Gail and Kate have operated their own successful recruitment consultancies for many years, they were brought together in a classic case of like attracting like.
Both share a genuine passion for their industry and its importance in helping clients to build a strong, resilient business through strong staff selection.
Both put the needs of the client at the very heart of all their dealings and don’t hesitate to go the extra yard to get the best result.
And both believe that what separates an ordinary recruiter from a highly effective one is the ‘care factor’.
That high level of care comes from having personally experienced the challenges of operating a successful business, with all its pleasures and pain. Gail and Kate have been in the trenches and know what it takes to survive and prosper, giving them a unique blend of experience and empathy that most recruiters simply don’t have.
Gail said a common admiration for each other’s work created a bond that made great business sense.
“I’ve known Kate for some time and admired the work she was doing with Savvy Staff, even though she was a competitor,” Gail said.
“While we’d never worked together, it was pretty obvious that we share the same professional values and business ethics. She is a great fit for Whipper Recruitment.”
Kate said the partnership was an obvious choice.
“I’ve always had a lot of respect for Gail both personally and for her reputation in the industry,” Kate said.
“When I finally made the decision to fold Savvy, coming to work for Whipper Recruitment was a no-brainer. I already feel very much at home here,” Kate said.
Whipper Recruitment strives to provide a service that is personal, caring and totally professional.
