Our story starts over 20 years ago when I started the business with a desk, telephone and yellow pages. Having worked for both a national and international agency and with extensive experience of the temporary and permanent marketplace I wanted to offer clients a truly bespoke service that would suit their needs.

Rather than being ‘just another agency’ it was my ambition to work alongside my clients and be treated as an extension of their HR department so that we could not just focus on recruiting staff but also add value in terms of market and salary information and advice on attrition and employment issues.

Fast forward 20+ years and we are now in the fortunate position where we work with many blue chip organisations – many of which are on a sole agency basis. The HQ team consist of passionate, loyal individuals who not only ‘know their stuff’ but are driven by not just being the best recruiters in the area but by providing an honest, straight talking approach to both candidates and clients alike.

Our values are as important to us today as they were when we started...

Working in close partnership with our clients and candidates to provide a professional and outstanding recruitment service. A passionate and dedicated team that build relationships based on honesty and trust.

We continue to strive to be the best recruiter in the area, to be transparent in our processes with both candidates and clients and to maintain our excellent brand and reputation.
