If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail!

I borrow the famous words of the late, great Benjamin Franklin in writing this article about a key principle at RIG which has underpinned so much of our success over the last decade.

We’ve seen the healthcare staffing market in the UK go through a great deal of change in the last couple of years and a key reason why we’ve been able to navigate the market better than many of our competitors is down to a culture to plan, commit and execute in a consistent and methodical manner.

We have some exciting plans for the future and following the thrilling news in June this year where we became part of CPL Resources Plc, we decided to start our planning a little early. We invited one of the most well-known business coach in UK recruitment sector, formerly the UK MD of Robert Half International for over 2 decades, Jeff Grout.

Jeff added a lot of value on the day, taught our team leaders and business managers the recipes for success that will undoubtedly help them in delivering their plans and inspired us all with stories of triumphs across the business and sporting world.

It’s this key focus on personal and professional development that really makes RIG a truly special place to work; where in the last 5 years we are proud to have trained and developed 16 recruiters into team leaders, 4 team leaders into Business Managers and Sales Directors and even our own Managing Director, Rob Bryan started with us as a recruiter over a decade ago and stepped into every role along the way to where he is now.

Following the strategy event, our CEO, Affi Khan commented “We believe that its vital to have a culture of continuous improvement across the entire business, this allows our staff to constantly adapt and improve to meet changing market needs. As the old saying goes ‘if you’re not getting better, you’re getting worse!’ we really believe that here and it’s this ethos that has helped us transform the careers of so many of our staff.”

As we embark on this exciting next phase of growth for RIG, we have entered 3 new markets in the healthcare staffing sector already whilst continuing to grow on our existing presence. We welcome ambitious and talented recruiters who are tired of ‘going around and round on the hamster wheel and getting nowhere’ to come and join us and enjoy the career progression and professional development that has allowed so many individuals to achieve the things they joined the recruitment industry to achieve in the first place.

RIG has a compelling 5-year vision and with the support of CPL we have the resources necessary to really make an impact in the market.
