What DiSRUPT does better

Very few startup companies have an effective recruitment process in place when beginning their business journey. We offer an Applicant Tracking System that helps to not only recruit top talent but create talent pools for any future hires you make, a careers site that really helps to attract a diverse pool of applicants, a strategy when it comes to Diversity & Inclusion and making sure the candidate journey is an enjoyable one from start to finish, whether they get offered the job or not.

What we do for candidates

Every organisation was a startup at some point and we have created a process which will use our knowledge of how to embed company values into every recruitment campaign and be that first impression for your company. We even created our very own standard, Includability, which is jam packed with inclusive organisations, including B Corps and startups!

Whether it is DiSRUPT RPO, On-Demand or Project that best suits your company, we will work closely with you to ensure you have access to what you need. ATS, Includability, Sustainability Strategy, D&I Strategy, Accessibility or a Careers Site, or maybe even all of that.

Becoming Socially Responsible

We pride ourselves on having an agile and open-minded approach to everything we do, so when things change (for better or for worse), we communicate effectively and adapt as necessary. No dramas, no fuss. Innovation and boundary pushing is something we embrace, so we are always available to chat about any ideas you have and any changes in your organisation. You will have access to a dedicated team and the best systems.

Measuring Recruitment

Our speciality is B-corps, Start-Ups, Scale-Ups and SMEs – the unpredictable nature excites us, the need to react with speed is something we thrive on and knowing we are having a genuine impact on your business fills us with pride. Above all else, we love what we do, we are an honest bunch and we work with absolute transparency.

DiSRUPT Recruitment FAQs

Find out the what, how, when and why of being unapologetically different.

Are you too small for Disrupt RPO?

Size doesn’t always matter! In fact, our RPO model is based on the amount of hires you make in a 12-month period.  

The minimum amount of new hires is 12 in a 12-month period.

Do you only work with B-Corps, SME’s, Start-Ups and Scale-Ups?

Having spent so long in recruitment, we have grown to understand where we can add the most value, where we can build the best relationships and importantly, have the most amount of impact.  

We also love working with businesses where things change quickly, where we can help solve problems and where we’re not just working with an ATS to upload a CV waiting for an automated message with updates!

Being an SME ourselves, we have ‘real-life’ experience of good times, bad times, Pandemic times and most other times that there are…. And we wouldn’t change it for the world

How long does an RPO take to implement?

In reality, we can start immediately. But the more time we put in at the beginning, the smoother the implementation. Trust us, we’re doctors (that’s not true, we’re recruiters, but you can still trust us)

We would suggest allowing between 3 - 8 weeks from scoping out your requirements to full roll-out…. Depending on the complexity and system implementations.

Is an RPO right for your company?

Great question! This is an important one to consider. Choosing Disrupt RPO to become your flexible strategic Recruitment Partner means you will have an entirely bespoke product to suit your immediate recruitment needs, whilst having huge flexibility to adjust to your future recruitment requirements, whatever they may be.

Disrupt RPO will also work closely with you to create processes, review processes, and clearly define a workflow process that works for you. Because every company is different, right!

How long is the Disrupt On-Demand contract for?

You can choose from 12, 24 or 36 months.

What are the minimum contract length for an RPO?

RPO’s are like fine wines…. They get better with age! So the minimum contract length is 12 months.

It takes time and effort to implement an RPO correctly which is why we ask for a commitment of 12 months.

What are the payment terms?

As much as we would love to do all of this for free, unfortunately we would require payment within 30 days of the candidate’s start date
