> Flexology-Shaping Roles That Work

Flexology is a Bristol-based recruitment agency that specialises exclusively in placing talented candidates in flexible roles at professional level. We work with innovative South West businesses of varying sizes on recruiting both full and part-time flexible talent with a strong industry focus on Finance, Project Management, HR, and Marketing roles.

The world of work is changing; the benefits of flexible working are compelling, with evidenced links to improved business and financial performance. However, in Bristol and the South West, the number of part-time, job share and other flexible roles are limited and a large and growing talent pool is being overlooked. We very much see flexible working practices as the future for work and employment – in all types of business, for all ages and genders and at all levels of seniority.

Flexology is extremely professional in their approach, taking the time and effort to really understand our business, the roles and the characteristics that would fit in our teams. As a consequence, we had fewer interviews with a very high success rate of candidates interviewed. This has saved us huge amounts of time, whilst the success of the candidates we employed has made a positive contribution to the success of the company.

Flexology’s business proposition is unique in the Bristol market, in that we’re the only recruiters who are focused solely on professional appointments on a flexible basis. By this, we mean part-time and full-time roles with flexibility, such as compressed hours, home/office split, and early/late start and finish times.

Clients often come to us as they have tried a traditional approach themselves and also with other agencies and they have not found the talent they are looking for, with our business background and flexible working focus, we can help them to shape their roles to make them more innovative and attractive, and give them access to our network of talent. We have been able to fill roles where internal HR teams and other agencies have failed, working closely with our clients and using our insight to secure the right fit of skills and culture – and the best talent.

“Thank you so much for your work on this role, it has been great working with Flexology and I would love to work with you again in the future. You have succeeded in this role where many other agencies have failed! I would have no hesitation in recommending you to others.”

- Bristol Based Charity, HR Manager

Our experience of working with Flexology has been very, very positive. I’ll look forward to working with Flexology further in the future, in the hope you can help us fill our remaining vacancies.

We have an extensive business background, in Finance and Project Management, Kristal and Shelley left the corporate world and launched the business after being frustrated themselves at the lack of senior roles with any flexibility, they decided to create a solution for the growing pool of talent that wants to work more flexibly.

We love Bristol, Kristal is Bristolian and Shelley has lived here for a number of years, we are excited to grow our business base here, there is an abundance of talent here and some amazing innovative businesses to work with and support as we grow.

Our clients love our business background and have led us to decide that we will only recruit consultants with a strong business background and significant professional experience – rather than experienced recruiters. This is a USP for Flexology. We believe that our business expertise and experience as hiring managers give us a greater, more rounded understanding of the challenges facing both employers and employees – much more so than traditional target-driven recruitment agencies.

In addition to our recruitment services, we also offer consultancy services to innovative and forward-thinking businesses who need support to move from a traditional working pattern by default to a more flexible, agile environment. We love placing candidates in flexible roles, but the chance to transform an entire workplace is even more exciting to us!
