ScaleUp Radio

Sep 21, 2020

For this week’s guest on ScaleUp Radio, recruitment has been something that she has been involved in since leaving university.

And that is how Emma Richardson made her journey from the north of England to London to Worcester - and Four Squared Recruitment.

Now, whilst Emma has worked in recruitment all of her professional life, she has still managed to create variety within the industry, making sure that doesn’t become stale at any point; something she talks about in our conversation.

Even though Four Squared is less than 2 years old at the time of recording in September 2020, it’s already making a name for itself in the world of financial, corporate recruitment - and so much of that is down to Emma’s passion and drive.

As always, we cover lots of ground - with lots for you to takeaway, no matter what industry you’re currently working in.

Some of the subjects we cover include:

 - The pros and cons of working for a company, compared to working for yourself

 - What are some of the questions that you need to ask as you go about finding the right people for your company

 - The benefits of allowing flexibility with your team, even if you’re a small business

 - How to deal with not hitting your monthly targets; how does the team react to support each other, and what does it have to do with fishing?

Emma is a great guest and is a really good example of someone in the early days of their scale up journey.
