Our Core value

Forget corporate jargon and buzzwords painted on the office walls, we have ONE core value that every Searchability employee lives by, and it exists in everything we do...

  • = Be Sound!

    Discover what this means...

    To be sound is a state of existence. It usually refers to someone who willingly does something positive for somebody else, asked or not, although usually unexpected. Alternatively, “sound” can be used as an adjective to describe a genuine, nice person.

    Synonyms: Cool / Awesome / Good

    “To be part of team Searchability you have to be sound. This value is a really big part of who we are, and whether it’s a conscious thought or just an engrained moral compass that guides our behaviours, it is helping us become not only a fantastic company to work for but also a company that is delivering a five star service for our clients and candidates too.” – Martin Blythe, Founder

Feel Sound Time

Sometimes you need an extra hour in bed and sometimes you just fancy an early dart to meet friends on a Friday! Our Feel Sound Time gives you an additional 16-24 hours paid holiday off per year* (on top of your standard paid holiday allowance of 23-25 days per annum) to do the things you love.

Work for us

We launched Searchability’s “Feel Sound” time in January 2020, to help provide a better work-life balance and more flexibility to our employees. Not only does this drastically increase your paid holiday entitlement, but Feel Sound time can be booked without notice, in as little as half an hour slots, straight through our HR app on your phone!

“Feel Sound” was introduced as part of our wellness programme alongside our #ThirdThursday events, we wanted to give our people the choice of how they use this time, because wellness looks a little different for all of us.

Our employees have already taken advantage of “Feel Sound” time for things like:

  • Needing a little more sleep on a Monday morning
  • Catching the morning waves on your surfboard
  • Taking a long lunch to meet friends
  • Going for a mid-week hair-cut
  • Heading to the bar on a Friday
  • *16-24 hours Feel Sound Time per annum is based upon a full-time employment arrangement, part-time will be allocated pro-rata

#ThirdThursday’s at Searchability

“77% of employees believe that employee wellness programs positively impact the company culture of their organisation”
Virgin HealthMiles Inc. and Workforce Management Magazine
We introduced #ThirdThursday as a way to deliver a little piece of wellness to our employees on the third Thursday of every month. We know that wellness means something different to everyone, which is why every #ThirdThursday has a new focus covering a variety of areas including:
    Personal Finance
    Life Coaching
    Mindfulness
    Yoga and Pilates
    Nutrition
    Emotional Intelligence
    Resilience
    Massage days
    Mental health first aid
    Relaxation techniques
    Sleep therapy
    Hypnotherapy
    EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)
    More Financial Wellbeing
    Meditation and More

Massages

Every now and then we like to treat our employees to some well deserved massages with a professional therapist! We devise a rota of 10 minute long appointments for each employee, where they can de-stress with a hand, neck or back massage. This is of course done in the privacy of one of our meeting rooms, which is strictly do not disturb whilst people are relaxing with their massage!

SiSU Health Machine

We regularly hire the SISU Health Machine for our employees to keep track on all their health levels, including weight, blood pressure, heart age and more! We keep the machine in one of our meeting rooms for around a week, giving our employees the opportunity to check their health whenever it’s convenient for them, in privacy.

Puppy Therapy

Paws in Work set up a virtual session were we could watch puppy dachshunds play and interact with each other. Their motto is to create a better life for people and pups. Being a mental health focussed, wellbeing company, led by puppies. They deliver cleverly crafted mental health training, alongside one-of-a-kind adorable puppy therapy events, to help to prevent the issues surrounding ill mental health.

Boxercise

Wellness activities can come in all forms. One form of exercise that uniquely incorporates HIIT with mindfulness (i.e. body awareness and deep breathing) is boxing, which can lead to notable improvements in stress reduction, weight loss, self-esteem, mood and concentration.

#FirstFriday's

We launched our famous #FirstFriday in 2016 to reward our employees for their efforts every month, encourage team building and celebrate successes!

As you may have guessed by the name, these events happen on every first Friday of each month, and events vary from low key office events to fully fledged parties! Over the years we have had some fantastic #FirstFriday events that have really brought us together as a team. Check out a snapshot of some of our favourite #FirstFriday events.

Chinese New Year

This is such a favourite that we bring it back every year at Searchability! We personalise fortune cookies with a variety of challenges, asking our people to draw at random to reveal their unique fortune. This could be anything from “Completing a fitness challenge” to “organising a charity day” or even just “paying for a round of drinks for their team”. And of course, every event ends with a delicious Chinese banquet for the whole office!

Sports Day

Summer time means getting out in the sun! This #FirstFriday was a little different and involved a physical challenge. We split off into different teams and competitively competed in games such as Three-Legged Race and Egg & Spoon. With our winning team bagging a free lunch out at 1539 and a Breakout Room session!

Fancy Dress Day for Charity

We combined this #FirstFriday with raising money for a charity that was close to one of our employees hearts. Everyone made an amazing effort! You can see Jack dressing up as Jack Sparrow, Leah as Princess Leia and even one of our pawfessionals Blue, dressed as Bond!

Can we escape?

We took to our local Breakout Rooms Chester. Splitting off into different groups completing different tasks to work together. With some people having 15 minutes to spare and others not so much…

Burn Baby Burn – Disco Inferno

We love topical themes at Searchability, but at times we need to find a “tenuous link” to make this work! A great example was our November #FirstFriday – we wanted to have a nod to bonfire night but couldn’t exactly start a Firework display in the office! Instead we turned this into our “Burn Baby Burn – Disco Inferno” party! We asked everyone to dress in the style of the 70’s and during the afternoon we served retro food and cocktails before boarding a private disco boat for the evening!

Training & Development

Whether you join us straight from University or as an experienced recruiter, we want to give you the best support to help you realise your potential and succeed in your career. Below is a snapshot of some of the internal and external training we can offer:

    Trustpilot

    I was extremely happy with my experience with Searchability. Katie was the definition of a professional. She always made sure to reach out via phone and/or email to keep me up to date with the interview and hiring process. She was quick to answer all my questions and was a great guide through the entire experience. On top of that she was able to help in negotiating a great salary for me! I've worked with other agencies in the past, all with highly adept recruiters, but by far I felt that Katie went a step above and was a real advocate for me. I highly recommend Katie and the Searchability Team as a whole!I was extremely happy with my experience with Searchability. Katie was the definition of a professional.
