The Beginnings

As start-up stories go, ours is no different. It all started with an a-ha moment. The journey started with the obvious question, Why hasn’t anyone thought of this before? and from there it grew into what Recruut is today, a thriving community of recruiters working closely together. Our intent is not to challenge the status quo of Job Boards, rather it is to provide an alternative. An alternative that is simple to use, yet way more effective than the traditional sourcing. Because all recruiters know how ineffective those traditional methodologies have become. So come join us and be a part of something new and different, isn’t that all disruptors are supposed to be, and we do like to think we are one.

The Team

It’s pretty common for companies to claim to have a dynamic team. So we aren’t going to be the exception here. What we do believe we have that is exceptional is that we are all recruiters first. That is why we built this platform. Because we know what recruiters need. We come to this not with an outside-in view but quite the opposite. Our team continues to grow but we have not lost our focus on what is core,  Recruut has a unique flat structure in which all functions work closely together to deliver on our promise. This allows direct engagement between our customers and our staff with the skills to design and implement the solutions they need.
