Rebel Recruiters is a Nottingham-based recruitment consultancy specialising in the technology sector. It works with a diverse range of clients to source and place highly skilled candidates in a wide range of tech-based roles.
The company was founded in 2015 and underwent rapid growth between 2016 and 2018, but that growth hit a plateau in 2018. Therefore, managing director Azar Hussain contacted the D2N2 UpScaler Project for support in business planning and developing and defining the processes it needed to achieve its growth ambitions. Rebel Recruiters received ongoing support from an UpScaler business adviser, having conducted a diagnostic. Azar and his team also attended workshops on a host of subjects, including people and culture, finance, leadership and management, and business strategy. UpScaler also provided financial support through the programme’s graduate talent grant. As a result of this, the company has been able to adopt a host of new processes. It has worked to refine the company values and culture. In addition to that it has moved to new offices to enable further growth.
As a small business owner, it can sometimes be difficult to get your head above water. The support from UpScaler has given me the confidence to take a step back and really focus on the things that will help the business grow and become more resilient. As well as the practical support we have received, it’s been great to be part of a peer-to-peer community where we can talk about the issues we are facing and share tips and ideas.
