About the company:

 

We burst onto the scene way back in 1999. In 2005, it was time for something new. And maybe a new name too. We found ourselves with a small team of 6 consultants selling into vertical markets, and soon they were calling us Verticality. 2005 was a big year for us. We wanted to give customers a way to recruit directly through online recruitment campaigns they could afford. So we launched EasyWeb Recruitment – a new division that did just that. Pretty soon, the EasyWeb Recruitment team were all the rage and through supporting 100s of customers every month, they had outgrown the rest of the company. Next up? The year was 2009 and we wanted to give something a bit more to the industry. That’s where EasyWeb Training comes in. We started our free workshops on online recruitment, and soon after launched our webinars too. Every year since, we’ve trained over 1,000 HR professionals and In-House recruiters on a wide range of recruitment topics. And the best part? All this training was totally free. That’s just what we do – we want to help you. Taking it one step at a time, in 2017, we made a small rebrand to ‘EasyWeb Group’ to bring all our services together. But, after 14 years as EasyWeb, the name just didn’t feel like us anymore. It was time for something fresh to sum up who we really are. This meant in early 2019 we were ready for a full rebrand that’d also find our new name. It took us a little while to find the right name – but finding the right fit for organisations is sorta what we do. So – as we’re sure you already know by now. We’re a pretty helpful bunch by nature, and we want to help you hire the right people for your teams. So it ended up being a bit of a no-brainer that this was the name for us.
