We are very excited to have recently launched our three new service levels that we believe reflect our values and strengths and allow us to focus on building partnerships with our clients that work for all of us. These ‘silver’, ‘gold’ and ‘platinum’ service levels are built on transparency, honesty and commitment.
Our most popular level is our ‘gold’ service, which is based on an exclusive partnership with our client and rewards their trust in us by offering our most competitive rates. Our aim is to understand our client’s strategic goals and develop long-term relationships.
Hiring managers often believe that working with more than one Recruitment Agency is an advantage as it can give them greater access to more qualified candidates. In reality, the opposite is often true.
Whilst choosing to put your vacancy with several recruitment agencies can lead to a greater volume of candidates, it does not necessarily result in the best qualified candidates.
Often when recruiters are competing against each other it becomes a race to submit candidates, but these are not necessarily the best candidates. In this scenario it is tempting for recruiters to only concentrate on the most active candidates, whilst in reality you need to go beyond this readily available candidate pool, to create the best short-list for the individual client.
At Atwood Tate, we believe that the most successful hiring practices evolve when we are able to work in an exclusive partnership with our client to become an extension of their company, allowing us to create a bespoke strategy, suitable for their individual need. This takes time and focus, as along with giving you access to the most active candidates, we also rely on our long standing relationships within publishing and fantastic networking streams to find you the best possible match for your team, culture and company aspirations.

3 great benefits of using our Gold service:
- Agreed recruitment schedule so you can plan ahead, book in interviews and know exactly how long the process should take.
- Formal progress reports mean you’re aware of our progress at regular agreed time stages and we can address any issues quickly.
- Full ‘corporate’ LinkedIn search and External database sourcing so we find the best candidates, not just applicants.
We’re very excited to be attending the PPA IPN Conference & Awards on 28th November – all the details about the day can be found here: http://www.ppa.co.uk/events/ipn2017
Karine and Kellie will be attending the morning conference which is always hugely informative with a great line up of talks including key industry trends, events, GDPR, developing subscriptions and media models of the future. We’re looking forward to the round table – we’ll be hosting the one focussed on Talent (we do know a thing or 2 about this!).
Good luck to all the nominees – for a full list of the Awards and all those shortlisted check out: http://www.ppa.co.uk/en/Events/IPN2017/Awards We’re pleased to be sponsoring the award for Editor of the Year!
Here at Atwood Tate, we work closely with many independent publishers across a wide range of markets and sectors. Coming from publishing backgrounds ourselves, we understand the culture and ethos of all our clients – one of our favourite parts of the job is getting to know people and building lasting relationships. That and of course working with our candidates to help them find the right job and develop their careers.
We hope to see you at the conference and awards and do get in touch if you have any Talent / recruitment queries in the meantime.

On Monday 2nd October, Karine and I attended the Annual Publishing Conference 2017 hosted by Rave Technologies.
As per normal, it was an interesting conference with the chance to meet like-minded people within publishing.
The morning session of the conference consisted of the following:
- Max Gabriel, Chief Technology Officer at Taylor & Francis, talking about the changing rules of economy, with the digital landscape shifting power from supply to demand.
- Chris Marker from The IET presented a case study on AI.
- Prabhash Shrestha from the Independent Community Bankers of America was next with an entertaining speech on digital transformation from a non-publishing viewpoint.
- John Haynes, CEO at AIP Publishing talked about innovation in a journal and data hybrid.

The panel included Daniel Ecer – Data Scientist at eLife Sciences Publications, Ian Mulvany – Head of Product Innovation at Sage, Prabhash Shrestha from the ICBA and Christopher Marker – Lead Taxonomist at The IET.
Following this was lunch with a chance of networking.
In the afternoon of the conference, there were the follwoing sessions:
