Welcome to The RAG Podcast, Where I will be interviewing the owners and leaders of Recruitment Agencies to discover the secrets to successful growth!

    Season 4 | Ep 11 - Bernie Schiemer on going from an 8 figure exit as a recruitment owner to building the world's fastest growing recruitment CRM!

    Season 4 | Ep 11 - Bernie Schiemer on going from an 8 figure exit as a recruitment owner to building the world's fastest growing recruitment CRM!

    Today I was delighted to be joined by Bernie Schiemer, Founder and CEO of Vincere - the worlds number 1 all in one recruitment CRM platform and our wonderful podcast sponsor!
    Bernie has spent multiple decades in the recruitment industry and it is clear that what he doesn’t know, probably isn’t worth knowing.


    After selling his agency and enjoying his 8 figure payout for a couple of years, Bernie decided to become a tech entrepreneur (with no previous experience)


    In today’s episode we discussed


    🎙 How in he came to sell his agency
    🎙 How he felt with 8 figures in the bank but no job
    🎙 Why he wanted to go again as a business owner
    🎙 Why he decided to venture into the world of start ups
    🎙 His vision for Vincere and where he sees the future of our industry


    Genuine and extremely likeable, not only will this give you an insight into selling an agency but also the brains behind the amazing platform we know as Vincere.

    Season 4 | Ep 9 - James Johnson on growing and selling Nicoll Curtin to launch a community of top performing independent recruiters that is designed to give them EXACTLY what they want!

    Season 4 | Ep 9 - James Johnson on growing and selling Nicoll Curtin to launch a community of top performing independent recruiters that is designed to give them EXACTLY what they want!

    Today I was delighted to be joined on Hoxo LinkedIn Live by James Johnson, Founder of District4 and former CEO of global recruitment group Nicoll Curtin (rebranded as ‘The Hive’)
    James is a very articulate business leader who never actually worked as a recruiter before taking over his fathers business in 2014.
    After growing the business across 4 global locations and learning lots along the way, he decided that leading a large traditional recruitment business was not actually aligned to his personality or ambitions.


    So he sold the group business and created a sub brand that sits in it’s portfolio.


    In today’s episode we discussed:


    🎙 How in he came to take over Nicholl Curtin
    🎙 What he learnt about scaling the business globally
    🎙 Why recruitment agencies will not make much profit between 15-60 staff
    🎙 Why he decided to sell and start something completely different
    🎙His vision for growing a modern recruitment community that is designed to fit EXACTLY what the modern top biller wants!


    Intelligent, articulate and honest, I loved recording this episode with James! If you are interested to find out more about District4 or would like to pick his brains on anything re scaling a recruitment business then feel free to reach directly via Linkedin

    Season 4 | Ep 8 - Headteacher Simon Cope on receiving the first laptops from Project 500 and what it means to the kids!

    In today's live episode of The RAG Podcast, I am again joined by my P500 partner Tim Roedel, alongside Simon Cope the Headteacher of Wild Ridings Primary School in Bracknell.

    Again, the size of this issue is unbelievable!
    We have to do something to help and we have to act now…
    Project 500 is a scheme that is designed to help provide some of the UK's most disadvantaged families with the laptops they desperately need.

    In today's live episode of The RAG Podcast, I am again joined by my Project 500 partners Chris Redmond and Tim Roedel, alongside Diarmaid Casey the Deputy Headteacher of the school I used to work as a teacher 10 years ago!
    Diarmaid openly discussed the reality of life for parents, teachers and school children in his area in the south east of Sheffield.
    He also confirmed that in his school alone - 333 students currently had no access to a laptop! That is one school, in one city across our nation…
    It is devastating to hear these statistics.
