After a decade sourcing talent at global recruitment giant, Michael Page, Dan Boneham has launched Monday at Nine Ltd, a brand new marketing and sales recruitment consultancy based in Leeds.
Situated in the heart of Leeds’ urban village and marketing hub, Boneham is running the new venture from Holbeck’s Saw Mill Yard, where he is well placed to tap into the city’s wealth of marketing professionals.
Championing the ethos that better people create better results, Boneham has launched the specialist marketing recruitment consultancy with the aim to provide a bespoke offering to businesses and professionals in the region, and to dispel stigmas attached to the recruitment industry’s modern-day guise.
Speaking about the new business and its unique moniker Mr Boneham said; “I am passionate about what I do and after working for one of the biggest names in the industry, both in London and Leeds, it feels like the right time to break away and create something new that I can be proud of.”
Having progressed quickly within the management structure at Michael Page, Mr Boneham was inspired to build the new business after reading Amazon Founder Jeff Bezos’ Regret Minimization Framework, in which he projects himself to age 80 and looks back with as little regret as possible.
He said: “For many people, 9am on Monday morning is the most important time of the working week and effective people placement can help companies to develop an engaged workforce, improving business performance. I don’t take lightly the Sunday dread that is so common in people who aren’t in their perfect role; I don’t want it for myself or for anybody that entrusts me with their next career move.”
Monday at Nine will provide a boutique proposition to both businesses looking for the very best talent, and professionals seeking their next challenge. It aims to fully immerse recruiters in employer brands to enable genuine and lasting matches of professionals to workplace culture.
