It’s all in the name: October

Lucy Simpson, MD & Founder of October answer’s that million dollar question: Why October?

If I invested £1 every time somebody asked me why we are called October, I’d be a millionaire.  It’s an on-going debate with candidates and clients all making various guesses as to why I decided to give my company this name. Is it the month I was born, married, had my children they all ask?

No…to all of the above. The actual answer is that October is the month I first decided to make my life change, leave employment and take the step in setting up my own company. By naming my agency October, I wanted to promote the idea that we can all make a change: every month can be your very own October.

Having worked in the corporate recruitment world for 13 years, I felt the real craft of recruitment was dying; the personal and original approach that good recruiters were known for was fading away behind process and technology – all becoming far too computerised and lazy. I wanted to strip things back to basics, set up a boutique agency and more than anything do ‘digital recruitment differently’ – a phrase in recent years we have become famous for.

So back to the point of why October – I wanted to promote the month I made the change, a positive change for the better, for me and push the idea that we can all make the change at any point in our lives, not just in October.
