Today, we announced PEER 1 and ServerBeach’s venture into the UK, with new headquarters in Southampton to support our European expansion. We’ve also launched a new recruiting drive to find “Sales Supremos, Technical Gods, Data Center Managers and a Network Guru”, and we’re damn serious about it. So much so, we’ll pay you to leave. We’re offering to pay all successful new employees £1,000 (approx. $1,400 US) if they want to give up their jobs in the first two weeks. We want to ensure we only employ those who are fully committed to delivering outstanding customer service.
Employees will enjoy benefits including ‘Dress Up Smart Day’ once a month and ‘Free Food Day’ the day before payday. We’ll also run ‘Cock-up of the Month’ (love the British slang), an opportunity to learn from and celebrate mistakes, as well as having PlayStations in the office and ‘Beer O’Clock’ at 4pm on Friday to let off steam. This is how my new British counterpart, Dominic Monkhouse, puts it:
“If you are the most driven, ambitious, enthused, charming and downright brilliant candidate out there, we’ll give you a great job in a cool office, pay you a good salary, and give you endless self-development opportunities. We get IT at PEER 1. PEER 1 is the Number One web hosting provider in Canada and we’re now on a mission to be Number One in the UK. We’re hell-bent on being the best B2B services company in any sector. For that reason I am offering any new employee £1000 cash to leave in the first two weeks. This way only those employees who really get it, who are thoroughly and wholeheartedly committed to raising the standards in hosting and service to the highest level will stay.”
You can listen to Dom talk about PEER 1 and ServerBeach’s new recruiting efforts in this hilarious interview with Radio Hampshire. Nice work, Dom.
