Crossmatch Recruitment was founded in 1989 by Ken and Annabelle McCunn who then worked in it for the next 30 years until retiring in 2019. Over that time, they developed their own brand of recruitment with a very personal touch.

Although Ken and Annabelle have now retired, Susan Ballantine, their close colleague for the past 20-plus years, still remains in the business and will continue to offer the same commitment to their candidates and clients as they always have.

The agency was acquired in August 2019 by REL Group, who have a well-established presence within the Scottish recruitment industry, with offices in Glasgow and Livingston. The group covers a wide range of recruitment sectors including IT, Commercial, Manufacturing, Engineering, Energy, Senior Appointments, Accountancy, Legal, Events & Hospitality and Contact Centre.

There are two divisions within the group, REL Recruitment and Aurellien, which delivers Recruitment services, HR support, succession planning, people development and mediation services. The REL team have many years’ experience and have held senior HR roles and positions within national and independent recruitment companies.
