With the shortage of skills and the escalating ‘war for talent’, finding and retaining quality candidates for jobs around Guildford and across Surrey is more competitive and time-consuming than ever before – Recruitment Agency Guildford

This is where we step in

We’re straight-forward

We are an office of genuine and experienced recruitment consultants in Guildford and over the years we have created a strong foot-hold in the Guildford and Surrey markets. Our reputation amongst local employers as being the ‘go-to’ office agency in the area, is based on our collaborative and professionally-managed recruitment services that find the right candidates on time and within budget. As a successful recruitment agency, when it comes to securing the best talent for our clients, we leave no stone unturned.

We’re a people business

We’re not just a recruitment agency in Guildford, we’re a people business and we appreciate that recruitment is a two-way street when finding the ideal match.  So, we make sure we do it properly. We’re definitely not fans of the bombardment approach where agencies throw CVs at a permanent or temporary role and hope one sticks. That’s just not us. We use our well-honed office recruitment skills and years of experience to present our clients with candidates who we are confident will be right for their business.

We don’t take short cuts

We know that each company is as unique as the candidates we place, so we will always go that extra mile to ensure we find the right recruitment solution for both parties…after all, recruitment is about people.  We are firm believers that nothing beats the personal touch and, unlike many Surrey agencies, we meet, interview and assess all our candidates as we believe it is the only way to truly understand their motivations and aspirations. This requires tenacity, but it works and is part of our promise to our clients.

We do what we say

Our clients and candidates know that we will deliver the goods. Clients work with us because our team in Guildford will find them the best talent across Surrey to fill their positions. Candidates come to us because we provide employment opportunities that they wouldn’t otherwise know about. Both know that we will give friendly, helpful and constructive guidance at every stage of the process.

We like to get it right first time

We strive to get it right first time and that’s why businesses stay with us.  We are in this for the long-haul and our team in Guildford has a tenacious desire to continuously find the right candidates for all of our Surrey-based clients.  We are not a typical office recruitment agency, so work with us and see how we will find you the best talent whilst saving you time, resource and ultimately cost.

We believe we do a great job, but don’t just take our word for it…

The Recruitment Consultancy have been my agency of choice for almost 20 years.

Really good recruitment agency to work with. The consultants helped me secure a temporary job as a student and reached out to me the following year to work for the same company. They are a very understanding agency and always efficient in responding.

Ms Ezey, Guildford, Surrey

Of all the recruitment agencies (4 agencies) that I have been to, they are simply amazing. Glynis was polite, easy to talk to, approachable and most importantly, reliable. From telephone to face-to-face interview, I have to say, it was flawless. I would never have thought she would be so great as a recruitment agency consultant considering my past experiences with recruitment people. I Because of her, I now have a job. I would definitely recommend these people.

The ladies at the Recruitment Consultancy are very lovely and always on the ball. I usually get responses within the hour, but, if not within the hour, always within the same day. They contacted me after finding my CV on Reed and I got a permanent job within 2 weeks. They also found me multiple local temporary jobs whilst I waited for my start date. Couldn’t recommend them more! Helpful, friendly and most importantly successful at what they do! Thanks ladies!

Holly Davis, Guildford, Surrey

We have worked with the Recruitment Consultancy for a number of years and always found them to be friendly, professional and courteous. They always find us suitable candidates for both temporary and permanent work. I would highly recommend them for all your requirements.

Justine Kentfield, Assoc CIPD, Director of HR/EA to CEO, Durrington High School, Worthing, West Sussex
This recruitment agency really do care about the people and succeeding in getting them the right job. So many agencies concentrate on getting the candidate in to any job, but not here. The staff are all so friendly with a wealth of knowledge and understanding. They really do make the stress of job searching less of a strain.
Celia Bond, Worthing
Never used a recruitment agency before and Cheryl found me a great job during our first meeting. She is an absolute joy. Surprised at how quick and easy it was. The Recruitment Consultancy team even sent a congratulations card to my work after I started. What a lovely gesture. Linda is also very kind and welcoming and I would definitely recommend this wonderful team.

I have had a great experience with the Recruitment Consultancy. Annamarie and the team helped me get the placement I wanted very quickly and have supported me ever since. They have regularly called me to see how my interviews went and how I was getting on when I started working. They are very available, approachable and efficient and have always answered all my queries very quickly.
Lucy Pebay, Worthing
Cheryl made sure she met me, so we could discuss what sort of job role I was after. She got me two interviews within a short space of time – one of which I accepted, because it was an offer of a permanent role which fitted my required specification I had discussed with her! I would not hesitate to recommend Cheryl and the team at The Recruitment Consultancy.
Gemma Licence, Worthing
I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to Cheryl and her team at The Recruitment Consultancy in Worthing as when I went in to register they made me very welcome. Cheryl is a lovely lady and I will have no hesitation to contact The Recruitment Consultancy if my circumstances change again.

From the first moment I had dealings with The Recruitment Consultancy I knew I was in the hands of professionals.

Big thanks to the team in Worthing.
