As an independent agency we aim to deliver a flexible and creative recruitment solution for our clients.  We believe in working honestly and openly, getting to the heart of what you need and what matters to you, to enable us to match the right people to your business.

The most extensive candidate network

Because our candidate network has been developed over more than 35 years, we can safely say that it is likely to be the most extensive you will find in this area!   To complement this we use digital marketing strategies, social media, advertising and search techniques to attract the very best candidates – both active and passive – for your roles.  Our long standing reputation also ensures we receive a higher number of referrals and recommendations, often attracting 2nd and even 3rd generation contacts!

We spend time with our candidates, appraising their experience, assessing their skills, checking their credentials and probing their motivations and career aspirations in order to uncover the complete person, not simply what’s on their CV, so that we can objectively evaluate their potential and suitability for your roles.

Company Values

We have a mature outlook, strong work ethic and our company values are based on Passion, Creativity, Integrity and Respect.  We’re corporate members of the REC, giving you peace of mind that our business is conducted in accordance with current legislation and to best practice.  We have amassed a wealth of knowledge about our industry and can provide clients with information about local markets, pay scales, availability and trends.

Clients relationships spanning 3 decades

Our business success demonstrates the long lasting relationships we’ve built, with many of our clients (and candidates) still using us after more than three decades.  We’re often commended for the detail and thoroughness of our service.  Because we take the time to truly understand your role and culture, we can position your opportunity to candidates more accurately.  Our shortlists are therefore stronger, ultimately resulting in greater success for you. 

Whatever the outcome for our candidates, we always ensure that every one of them leaves the recruitment process with a positive feeling about your company and brand. You may want to consider them for a role in the future and you will certainly want them to speak highly of their experience with you.  Indeed it’s our methods at every stage of the recruitment process that truly sets us apart from our competitors and makes us the agency of choice in Cheshire.
