Ri5 RIP

 

Ri5 has ceased trading with immediate effect. Since the turn of the millennium, we have followed the rocky road of recruitment communications, aiming to inform, guide and even amuse its participants. Many fine and talented people have helped along the way: clients, contributors, supporters, and friends have all played important parts in sustaining the Ri5 team. Despite determined effort, it has been impossible to find a viable way forward and, with reluctance and sadness, we have to call it a day.

Thanks to all. We wish it could have gone on longer.

Gutted! Ri5 was the go to place for all things rec comms, and the kudos of seeing your agency as the headline will never be lost on me. We like most other agencies moved into pastures new but I was still a regular user, although I can understand the challenges that you face. Thanks to everyone, Bob, Kevin, Spike who helped over the years, you've covered the whole industry and been central to so much over the years. I'm sorry that it's ended like this. When one door closes, you have the opportunity to open others now and you're a talented bunch so look forward to hearing about your next venture. Take care, Dave from Wave

Dear Kevin, Spike and Vicky. I am shocked, saddened and hugely disappointed to hear this news. Your efforts, over such a long and challenging period, to provide a professional, informed and accessible focus for the whole Recruitment Advertising fraternity was unsurpassed. Unfortunately, we will never, I suspect, see your like again. Our loss. Best wishes for whatever you choose for the future.

Peter Phillips Date: Sep 5, 2019

Very sad news. You guys were a very important part of my time in recruitment advertising. Good luck in your future endeavours!

How very sad; you have been essential reading for those in our little, unknown industry sector. I hope all staff are okay and will be able to prosper in new environs in the future,
