Progress, updates & where to find us next quarter

Q1 of 2018 has come and gone in the blink of an eye. With so much going on it is easy to get sucked into the next quarter, however, there have been some remarkable achievements at IE since the turn of the year that need time to be credited.

First and foremost; in my last few blogs, I have mentioned that we have been working towards a record-breaking quarter, and I am jumping with joy to share that Q1 of 2018 has seen the highest turnover in revenue since our companies conception. Within this, there have been some stand-out individual Recruitment performances (you know who you are) and I would also like to reserve a special mention to Marketing, but moreover, it has derived from every individual within IE working together and contributing to the team effort. IE are working with more clients, with a wider global reach and are filling more vacancies than ever before. A huge and deserved well done to the Intelligent Employment team!

In addition to supporting our clients recruit, we have also been busy sourcing and interviewing some outstanding recruiters to grow our business, and to support the increase in demand from our clients. Earlier this quarter we managed to secure a very experienced, personable and avid recruiter to our Renewable Energy team. Welcome, Jay Bettle! Jay brings with him over 8 years of blue & white collar recruitment experience in challenging markets. With his passion for sustainability, there was only one place we could put him. Luckily for me, that is on my team! #WelcomeJay

Out of the office, we have also been busy. Last week I had the pleasure of meeting with many prospective clients and candidates at #EnergyWeek in Vaasa, Finland, executed brilliantly by the Finnish Wind Power Association. We have had a hugely warm welcome since opening our first branch of the Nordics here in Finland and so to everyone that has engaged without brand since arriving here, kiitos parljon!

This was our first exhibition attendance this year, however later this year you will also be able to find us at All NRG UK in May, Scottish Renewables Onshore in June, WindEnergy Hamburg in September, then WindFinland & WindSweden in October. Please feel free to reach out to us if you would like to meet at one of the aforementioned exhibitions.

All in all, we have had an amazing first quarter. We cannot leave without a massive thank you to all for all the support across the social media networks and our new followers. Quarter 2 is now upon us and as it stands our pipeline is looking as though it could potentially be another record breaker, but I can cover that in my next blog. For now, it is the Easter break and a chance to recharge the batteries before getting back to business in April.

Looking forward to another promising quarter, thanks for taking the time to read and support. So for now, Happy Easter / Hauskaa pääsiäistä!
