Hi, I am Paul Withers and thank you for visiting my site
A graduate in Industrial Relations and Human Resource Management, I joined the recruitment industry in 2000 securing a graduate position with a London based firm specialising in the IT and Professional Service sectors.
After a number of years in London, I relocated back to East Anglia and keen to use the skills gained in my academic study I took up a position as an HR Recruitment Consultant with a leading international specialist recruitment business based in Cambridge.
During this time I worked with both Public and Private Sector clients recruiting from entry to director level across the Cambridge and London markets. In February 2010 I joined RAD Europe, leading HR Recruitment activities across the UK and Europe.
I like to retain my specialism in HR recruitment, however due to client demand, I have expanded my remit to successfully deliver a number of assignments across the wider commercial and sales functions.
With a firm belief that recruitment is a business based on relationships and not just transactions, I strive to create long term mutually beneficial relationships with equal importance placed on clients and candidates alike. I have completed the Certificate in Recruitment Practice and I am a certified NLP Practitioner.
Who I work with
RAD Europe – I coordinate a group of experienced Recruiters who provide full life cycle recruitment support for companies recruiting across the full range of Commercial and Sales functions. We also enjoy supporting with early career assignments.
Stangate HR – A specialist HR Recruitment business, where I use my expert HR Recruitment knowledge to search for mid to senior level HR candidates.
The HR Academy – I have created The HR Academy to help those looking for, and those recruiting for, early career opportunities within HR.
Where can I help?
I have 20 years experience in the Recruitment Industry and have gained a wealth of experience and high quality contacts, meaning that I am able to assist with a wide range of assignment.
If I do not feel that your assignment is within my areas of expertise, then I will happily refer you to someone that is an expert in that area.
