Solving the recruitment puzzle
Korp Talent is the best combination of Scandinavian and British values, values that made them each conquer the world in their own way. We talk about exploration, skill and grit. And the fact that we never back down. We acknowledge the skill and drive in each person working for us and we understand that everyone is participating because they want to. There is always a win-win-win situation to be found. That's why clients, candidates and coworkers love the Korp Talent way.
We charge fees only based on success so that clients can have a rational business decision whether to hire a candidate or not. We pay our ravens fair compensation and one of the best commissions on the market so they will always put in that extra effort. And we are always free for our candidates. But that is not all. When others are scrounging the internet for profiles in order to bombard their clients with numbers, we make sure to understand the culture and psychology of both sides in order to send more precise matching candidates.
It all started back in 2016 and Kasper Aase was running an IT consultancy company division in Sweden where it had become increasingly hard to recruit over the last decade. Robert Banerjee was the one recruitment consultant that delivered again and again, over a long period of time. Obviously, Robert had a lot higher success rate than all the other’s combined.
After working together on different sides of the negotiation table, as well as both switching into new jobs, they decided to have a series of meetings in Edinburgh and London. After that Kasper and Robert decided to bring their combined skill set and experience together to make up a better way to recruit personnel to Scandinavian companies.
Robert runs the office and the day-to-day operations in Sunderland. With a Psychology background, he is one of the best recruitment agents out there. And he also manages the team and makes sure all our Ravens deliver new candidates to our clients, every day.
Kasper runs all the little things that needs to be done when starting up a new company and makes sure the company has sufficient means for expansion.
