    HR recruitment with a difference

    HR recruitment partner and hosts of The Surrey & Sussex HR Forum

    Working with businesses and HR professionals in both a recruitment and advisory capacity, we truly appreciate the specific skills and knowledge required by each company and the individual HR roles within them. Every role has its unique depth and breadth of responsibilities and as established HR recruitment specialists, our experience enables us to recognise both these, as well as some of the more subtle nuances that also exist. It is this that really drives our success in finding the right candidate ‘fit’ for every client with whom we work.

    Read our guide to HR recruitment.

    We offer quality-driven, comprehensive and results-driven HR recruitment solutions, so if you are looking for last-minute support or wanting to hire a specific HR specialist, we can bring them into your organisation on a temporary, fixed-term, temp-to-perm or permanent basis depending on your business requirements.

    We know that having a successful people strategy within your organisation is imperative, however, we also know that securing the right people to support this strategy is paramount.

    What makes us different

    Commitment to quality

    We are true believers in quality and professionalism, it lies at the heart of our success.  As long-standing members of the REC (The Recruitment & Employment Confederation) we are committed to best practice and adhere to the REC’s Code of Professional Practice.

    We stay ahead

    As hosts of The Surrey & Sussex HR Forum, we keep ahead of the challenges our forum members face in the HR industry with regular updates and expert-led webinars.  Founded in 2009, the forum is recognised as a leading networking group with over 520 HR professionals as members.

    No hire, no fee

    Many HR recruitment agencies work on a retained basis and require incremental payments whilst searching for permanent candidates.  We are different, as we work on a contingency basis, whereby you only pay us once we have successfully secured your new hire.

    Our reputation

    Established in 1997, we work tirelessly to maintain our reputation as the agency of choice for HR recruitment.  We offer advice and guidance to our clients and candidates alike and maintain a strong thread of communication with both.  We are proud to say that we have helped several HR professionals progress their career, then subsequently worked as their hiring partner.  To us, that says it all.

    We deliver results

    We are in this for the long-haul and we strive to get it right first time.  Our job is to make our client’s easier and we do this by working collaboratively.  We don’t waste time with the ‘CV bombardment approach’, our clients only see candidates that are the right fit.  Known for being professional, streamlined and thorough, we are also a hard-working and friendly bunch and that’s why our clients stay with us.
