Affecting Futures

  • Last modified:January 19th, 2021
  • About Us
Healthcare and education aren’t just sectors or industries – they’re the foundations of our society, and the building blocks of our collective future. So, by recruiting exclusively within these two areas, we’re distinctly aware of just how much what we do matters. Put simply, the healthcare professionals we place save lives, and the education professionals we recruit change lives. This explains the ethos that Athona Recruitment is built upon: Affecting Futures. Every day, every Athona recruitment consultant, every Athona candidate, and every Athona client affects futures. And we don’t take that responsibility lightly. From the people we employ to the compliance we implement; we do everything in our power to ensure we operate by the same ethical standards our partners do. We make honesty and integrity part of our DNA – because work this important deserves nothing less. Above all, we put ourselves in the minds of our candidates and clients and truly understand the unparalleled challenges you face. These aren’t just jobs. And we aren’t just recruiters. We’re committed to Affecting Futures in the best way possible, just like you are. We decided to establish an Advisory Board initiative in 2020 to better understand the customer journey that our clients and candidates go through to access the services from Athona. This has allowed us to improve where necessary our service and embark on new offerings. The opinions of our clients and candidates is paramount to us growing. We started our Advisory Board initiative with the healthcare side of the business in 2020 and in 2021 are launching an Advisory Board specifically related to our clients and candidates who work in the education sector.

So what have we learnt so far?

During our initial Advisory Board meeting we came away with a vast amount of feedback that we have been working on throughout 2020 and into 2021.Accessing tailored support, not just for your career, but all aspects of your life; e.g advice from industry experts.
