The key takeaways from this episode are as follows:

The evolution of recruitment and what has kept Mark in the industry for so long

Having standards, caring about clients and candidates, and why the long game really is the best game

Growing a business and what it’s like to bill again (as well as advice for those who want to do the same)

Top business development techniques and why speccing doesn’t really count


This week I’m joined by Mark Long, Director of Numi.

He has worked in the recruitment industry for 25+ years, and has held roles both as a biller, manager, team lead and now business owner. His trajectory is incredible – and it was insightful to sit down with him and talk all things recruitment!

From the early days of SThree and “Wolf of Wall Street” environment through to completely changing his approach and outlook to recruitment, we unpack everything inclusive of business development, values, purpose, and building a sustainable desk in a saturated market.
