Our consultants have a wealth of recruitment expertise including salary benchmarking, writing job descriptions and the South West recruitment market.
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.
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.
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, leisure, 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.

Lynsey has over 15 years of recruitment experience, all of which have been with Cathedral Appointments! She initially ran our office division before utilising previous knowledge and experience by taking on the IT Division in 2016. She can also be found running around sorting IT issues in the office for the rest of the team!
Ali joined Cathedral Appointments in 2017 after working in the USA for 18 months. With a customer focused approach and a strong sales background, Ali works alongside Katie on the Office Division and has built up strong relationships with a number of the SW's leading employers. She is probably the fittest (and competitive) member of the CathApps team.
