Becoming DiSRUPTive

Our transformation from EllisKnight to DiSRUPT

We love recruitment, we hate recruitment agencies. We've known since the COVID-19 lockdown that EllisKnight 'The Ethical Recruiter' needed to be reborn. We had to make sure we offered not only the best possible recruitment process, using a tried and tested innovative full stack of technology but also to provide business development solutions for our B-Corp, SME, Scale-up and Startup clients.

Find out why, how and where we have made the changes to EllisKnight International Recruitment and how we have become DiSRUPT. (Also what the Octopus is all about !!)

Who are EllisKnight International Recruitment?

What makes the EllisKnight International Recruitment the Ethical Recruiter

Who are EllisKnight

EllisKnight International Recruitment was born from an ideal that recruitment should be more than just CV's and Interviews. Over the last 7 years we have developed a team of outstanding individuals who are experts in their fields. The business itself started with the mission to be the first Ethical Recruitment Agency, who not only supported the clients through a proactive and modern approach to recruitment but also ensured the welfare of the candidates was always at the heart of what we do.

Our desire to be innovative and ethical has lead us to become more disruptive and forward thinking than ever before with our approach to helping clients and candidates find the right fit. It is now so much more than the outline we created below.

EllisKnight International Recruitment is a Berkshire based recruitment agency, supporting exciting local and national organisations with their talent acquisition strategy and providing our candidates with a hand to hold throughout their career. As a company, we pride ourselves on our ability to help others and place tremendous emphasis on environmental sustainability, community support, charitable fundraising and providing our talented team with an environment to flourish within.

Why change to DiSRUPT Recruitment Agency?

What made us rebuild from the ground up?

The Socially Responsible B Corp Recruitment Agency

At DiSRUPT Recruitment Agency we are a socially responsible recruitment company that's changing the game. Our rebranding to DiSRUPT reflects our innovative spirit and commitment to creating a better world.

As a B Corp, we are proud to be part of a global movement of companies using business as a force for good. We believe that socially responsible recruitment services can make a real difference in people's lives, and we are determined to lead the way.

We looked at our service offering and rebuilt it from the ground up with our RPO, Project and On-Demand services leading the market and providing our clients with tailored solutions that deliver results. But we don't just focus on the bottom line. Our Support Services for Diversity and Inclusion, Sustainability & Impact, Wellbeing, Mental Health, and B Corp certification demonstrate our commitment to creating a more inclusive workplace.

At DiSRUPT, we set ourselves apart with our workplace standard, Includability. This standard represents our core values of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and it guides everything we do. We have been in business for nearly 10 years and have a proven track record of success in ethical recruitment.

Our logo, the octopus, is more than just a clever design. It represents the 3 hearts of people, planet, and purpose, which guide our work. The tentacles symbolise our ability to expand our expertise across the pillars of inclusion, reaching into every aspect of our work to deliver results for our clients.

So if you're looking for a recruitment agency that's different, choose DiSRUPT. We're the octopuses of the recruitment world, with tentacles that reach far and wide, and hearts that beat for a better world.
