7 September 2022|In Podcasts|By Sean Anderson

We are back with season 6 and WHAT a guest to kick this season off!

In this season, we will be continually digging into the stories of amazing recruitment founders but also talking about the reality of today’s economy. If there are any changes happening in our sector then I want to find out and bring it to you first.

On this week’s episode I was delighted to be joined by Ed Rossiter, Co-Founder & CEO of Phoenix Search, a specialist recruitment firm headquartered in Ireland but with offices in London and soon to be on the ground in the USA.

Although it’s only 4 years old, Phoenix Search has scaled to 45 people and in the past few months secured a 1 million euro investment to scale the business with a further 250 people in the next 3-5 years!

In this episode we spoke about:

  1. Ed’s start-up story and why he decided to start Phoenix
  2. The reality of the early days
  3. How he’s got the business to 45 staff in a short period of time
  4. Why and how he secured the 1 million euro investment
  5. How he intends to spend it
  6. His vision for the business
  7. The impact the recession is having on his business today and his thoughts on what could happen next

Featuring the first Irish guest on The RAG, this episode was packed full of information that I believe ALL potential and experienced recruitment owners will benefit from!
