Prefio launches in the UK

New agency set to change the face of recruitment

17 March, 2010 London, England: Today sees the official launch of Prefio, a sector focused, new approach to recruitment resembling a large scale ‘refer a friend’ scheme with vetted “friends”. Working on the basis of a referral network Prefio engages ‘referrers’ who use their network to recommend people for opportunities – netting themselves a minimum of £2,500 in the process.

Not only is it good news for referrers, but employers can see their recruitment costs cut by at least 50% too, with the total fee for any successful candidate employed through Prefio fixed at £5,000.

Prefio has been in Beta testing for the past year but is redefining recruitment by harnessing the brainpower of hundreds of the most knowledgeable people in the sector to find the best candidates. Created and developed by established specialists in commercial property, real estate finance & construction executive search, Prefio is headed up by respected industry expert Tim Latham and was recently listed as a Smarta 100 Company <http://www.smarta.com/smarta100> as voted for by Deborah Meaden and Bebo founder Michael Birch.

“One client called it, ‘Recruitment’s equivalent of Amazon’ as it has allowed them to reach deeply into the sector’s talent pool effectively and efficiently” says founder, Tim Latham. “The recruitment industry has had a bad reputation for years, one of the reasons being that even the best recruiters can’t approach the knowledge held by hundreds of a sector’s practitioners – whom Prefio uses to make referrals,” adds Latham.“
