Sadaf and Ryan’s motivation to come together and form V Selective was born from their personal experiences of both the ‘graduate job market’, and the way recruitment companies worked in general.
Our experience was that of ‘CV shops’ who did not see people as… well people!
After graduating from Derby University in Business Management and Philosophy, both gained continuous and extensive experience within various recruitment sectors. Being graduates themselves and working within recruitment they noticed that so many skilled graduates were settling for lower level jobs due to their perceived lack of experience combined with their own urgency to pay off university debts. Here they saw the opportunity to create an organic consultancy that specialised in the recruitment of high calibre and ambitious students and graduates into degree related roles to maximise their full potential within the professional world.
In terms of the general recruitment industry, they felt that the most firms did not provide value for money to employers, or indeed a good service to candidates. So, by launching a new company with a fair pricing strategy, whilst also adopting a flexible and ‘human’ approach – V Selective in turn be a fresh of fresh air to employers and job seekers alike.
Since establishing our graduate desk in 2005, we have since diversified into providing staff at all levels to the commercial sector. Our steady growth has continued, and we have since launched specialist Technical, Training and Commercial Sector desks – employing specialist consultants who share the V Selective ethos.
Having recruited for the Training sector for over 15 years, we have both developed a passion for Apprenticeships and Employability Skills.
At V Selective we now have a portfolio of services that can meet the individual needs of individual organisations.
