Recruitment Agents

We get a lot of interest and many calls from recruitment agencies – we do appreciate your interest, however we recruit for all positions using our in-house HR team and we contact our candidates directly.  We value highly delivering a quality service and find that managing recruitment in-house allows us to do this.

We do not therefore take cold calls from agencies – if we find ourselves in a position whereby we may need help from an agency we will contact our preferred suppliers.  We have no plans to review our preferred suppliers at the current time – please do not ask us to.  We ask that you respect the relationships we have with our preferred suppliers and follow these guidelines.

Thank you for your understanding.
