Company: Flexible Skills Bank
Description: Flexible Skills Bank was a versatile recruitment solution, offering small and growing businesses the chance to recruit skilled experienced staff direct, on a part time, freelance or contract basis.
Whilst working as a marketing consultant to small businesses I realised that one of the difficulties that many small businesses often face is recruiting the right people with the right skills, as they need them, without necessarily having to pay a full time salary or large fees to recruitment agencies.
Flexible Skills Bank was set up as an intermediary, matching potential candidates with companies who have vacancies to fill, but still bearing in mind that small businesses can not afford large introduction fees or ongoing agency commission, so costs are kept to an absolute minimum.
