Shape Careers was a successful and profitable recruitment agency which I co-founded, made of ex-industry professionals from the design industry. The company was made up of two directors and at our peak we had four recruitment consultants as well as one support staff which were all directly sourced and hired internally.
Shape Careers was knowledgeable and well connected in the Architecture, Interior Design and Construction sectors. We helped design studios find everyone from receptionists, studio managers to architects, designers, IT managers, IT Support and even technology specialists such as programmers and parametric designers.
My responsibilities included day to day management of recruitment and operations, including recruiting first hand live roles as well as leading a recruitment team. I was also responsible for the implementation and maintenance of all recruitment systems, tools, training and policies as well as the design and construction of the website and visual branding of the company.
