Leading the way in connecting ambitious professionals with formidable employers

At Xist4, we work in partnership and on an exclusive basis with clients to understand their hiring challenges and provide them with expertise where it is needed most. This could be in the form of a Bespoke IT Recruitment solution, Retained Search offering, or delivery of an Executive Search service that enables employers to secure the mid, senior, and executive-level talent they need.

Our multifaceted inclusive approach to talent attraction is uncommon in the recruitment industry. It ensures that Xist4 clients are given the best opportunity to successfully place those often niche and hard to fill roles against a backdrop of a growing demand for skilled professionals in a shrinking talent pool.

Sourcing talent, not background

A strong company culture is one of the hardest things to get right and maintain it requires investment, time and patience and our job is to ensure your culture is enhanced with each new hire we support you with. We do this through an inclusive search process which is standard hiring practice at Xist4. This enables us to attract, engage and onboard the very best people based on their ability to be successful in the role they are being recruited for.

The focus of any hiring strategy must be on recognising the strengths and talents of an individual candidate, identifying the value they can add to the team, and understanding how they can bridge the gaps that exist within the organisation, irrespective of background.

This is a truly inclusive approach to hiring. By prioritising the right person organisational culture is strengthened, organisations overcome many of the hiring challenges they face business performance is improved, and in the process many of the barriers preventing those from different backgrounds rising the corporate ladder are removed by default.

Incorporating sustainability and social purpose with every assignment

We have a choice – to bemoan the problem or become part of the solution to the challenges facing the environment in which we all share and the impact this has on many people in society. Xist4 has opted for the latter.

Organisations, both large and small, have an opportunity to make a positive impact on people and planet by embedding sustainability and social impact at the very core of their businesses. For us, that means several things.

Xist4 is supporting the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal on gender equality. We are onboard with our home city of Bristol’s One City Plan that aims to achieve a fair, healthy, and sustainable environment where everyone has access to good quality jobs. This in turn will help reduce both inequality and deprivation among many disadvantaged communities.

There is so much more we can do as a business ourselves, but this is not a series of isolated projects. It is a movement that incorporates a plethora of actions and marginal gains that when added together can make a significant impact. Want to join us on this journey?
