South West Recruitment Specialists

The most important part of your business really is your staff. As a specialist recruitment consultancy in Exeter, we help leading businesses across the South West find the right people - time after time. We can do the same for you.

Culture and your people are everything...

Technical skills, experience and education - they are important in any job. But the right attitude is equally important too. We look beyond JDs and CVs and we get to know our candidates as well as we get to know your business. In fact, we love finding out what makes our clients tick. And we insist on meeting each of our candidates face to face, to see the person behind the profile. That way we can bring you candidates that don’t just fit your technical requirements, but your culture too.

How can we help?

You’re busy. You don’t have time for the nuances of a recruitment campaign. We can manage the entire lifecycle of your project – end to end recruitment. We will liaise with you every step of the way to keep you in the loop. It’s what we have been doing since we started in 1988 - and in that time we have become the leading employment agency in Exeter, with an outstanding success rate of placing key talent across a diverse mix of sectors: engineering, manufacturing, construction, IT, marketing, sales, accountancy, financial services, professional services and more.

Whether it’s designing a recruitment campaign for a niche opportunity, providing consultancy or separating the best from the rest through candidate testing and assessments, you can count on us with any type of recruitment function. Full time staff, temp staff, interim, project managers or contractors: our extensive links across the South West enable us to find great talent for almost any type of vacancy. Leave it with us while you get on with what you’re best at.

'Jo again thank you for your assistance in obtaining my new position, I have to say, again Cathedral Appointments has been outstanding in supporting my employment search. I still can't believe that within a week of contacting you, not only did you manage to secure me an interview, but provided enough information for me to research the company and its needs to make a fantastic impression at interview.
I will not hesitate to recommend Cathedral and yourself to any of my associates and friends in the future.'
