Recro is an employability and recruitment solutions consultancy and training company.

Our mission is to improve the effectiveness, efficiency and experience between the workless, employers and providers.

We design and deliver bespoke recruitment solutions for employers, helping leverage their needs through the supply chain. We also work with long-term unemployed groups through publicly funded programmes progressing them towards and into sustainable employment.

Recro utilises personal and professional development material and designs and delivers bespoke programmes for clients ranging from employers looking to hire, organisations looking to change, job centres, local authorities, housing associations and partnerships including the voluntary sector looking to get people into work. We also work with schools, colleges and universities helping them help their students be the best they can be and get The Life And Career They Want ©. And we work with individuals interested in changing their life too, through coaching, mentoring, one to one support or programmes dealing with life events such as redundancy or How To Get That Job©.

The Life You Want©

This includes our flagship personal breakthrough, motivation and employment programme “The Life You Want©” which delivers a paradigm shift in confidence, motivation, aspiration and self-esteem. Delegates get leading edge recruitment training and finally understand how the game works! It changes people’s lives, switches their lights on and gives them the tools to get the life and career they want. We support them with training, coaching and mentoring into sustainable employment.

When working with businesses we make the complex bit in the middle work more effectively and efficiently. Recro provides expert consultancy and support to help all partners involved maximise the social gain and aspirations from any employment opportunities. This includes working with local authorities, JCP, colleges, training providers, housing associations and the voluntary sector.

How we help the long term unemployed

We know that lack of confidence, aspiration and motivation is real challenge for many people out of work, for whatever reason. This can affect their mindset and manifest in poor attitude and unhelpful behaviours. Some are not life ready let alone work ready. Too often, little if anything is done to address this and as an inclusive society, looking to increase productivity, this has to change.

Recro wants to be a recruitment partner of choice delivering the level of service and calibre of candidates you would expect from a partner.

We’re bringing personal and professional to the masses: often the people who could benefit most, but are the least likely to get access to it. This includes school children, the long term unemployed, those termed problem or troubled families and anyone else who wants help to change their life.

We also work with organisations and individuals helping them to develop and be more effective at what they are trying to achieve. This includes clear vision and mission and overcoming obstacles which may hamper progress.

Employment is a vital element of this and we help people understand how the game and recruitment market works as well as giving them leading edge training and introductions.

Working with Recro enables what seems impossible become possible and this includes training providers.

It also provides an opportunity to do some of the most powerful CSR work around.

It means we get people saying things like this:

“I feel like the fire inside of me is burning again and I’m more ready than before to get out and look for work. I feel that someone took time on me and gave me a chance to prove myself.”

“I feel good! What has worked for me was the personal development area of the programme… to help identify the areas that need to be improved and given me the confidence to do so.”

This is vital component for early intervention programmes, social mobility, social justice and health justice outcomes frameworks.

Be realistic, start out thinking this is the start of a journey not that it will be the all singing and dancing solution – these types of exercises are hard work mentally and you need to have the time to thoroughly explore the issues including the personal and organisational dynamics in order to have a stronger platform to plan your way forward. Don’t rush the first bit just so you can say you have a set of detailed actions by the end of the work shop. The following week was a revelation.

Executive Director , Reading UK CIC

John is refreshingly challenging in a very constructive way. A pivotal step in change management is getting all the stakeholders on board with a shared goal and vision. He’s able to bring a diverse range of stakeholders together and look at things differently and enables them to examine what they’re doing and think beyond their respective organisations’ own objectives and KPIs.
