About our service

The Positions We Handle

We only handle office staff, for example, Administrators, Receptionists, Secretaries and PAs. They can be permanent or temporary, full-time or part-time. Whether you are looking for a temp for just one day to answer phones or a new permanent PA for the Chief Executive, we are more than happy to hear from you.

What It Costs

For a permanent position, we charge 15% of the annual salary (plus VAT) and you don’t pay anything unless a person we put forward starts a job with you. For temporary jobs, we charge by the hour, with the rate dependent on the level of job. We have reduced fees and rates for charities and there are no hidden charges.

The Next Step

Make contact in any way you like: phone, email or using the form below. There is no job too small or question too daft. If you decide to give us a position to fill, we will ask you about the skills required as well as practicalities such as timescales. A written job description is not essential but, if you do have one, that would help.

Our Difference

. . .  is the depth of our experience in office staff recruitment, individually and as a team.

We’ve seen so many CVs in our time, so many candidates and so many scenarios, that we have a lot to draw upon when it comes to guiding clients. It gives us the confidence to tell you what we really think and not what you want to hear.

We don’t have sales targets and we don’t compete with each other for placements. We are way past that. The benefit to you is that you get the best we can offer from our collective experience.

Another benefit to you of our stability is that you can come back to us, sometimes years later, and you don’t have to start explaining everything all over again to new people.

If you know anything of the recruitment industry, you will know just how different that is.
