Recruitment in Exeter

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, 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.

Next steps?

Engaging with us is easy! Our rates are competitive and we and can work flexibly to accommodate your financial realities. If you have any questions we are happy to offer advice over the phone. Even better, let’s meet in person to discuss your requirements and strategic ambitions. Get in touch with our team of professional recruitment consultants to find out more.

Testimonials

'I've experienced Lynsey whilst looking for a suitable role for myself and then as a manager requiring a number of technical positions. Both experiences have been excellent. During the past 6 months of recruitment, Lynsey has found excellent candidates for my vacancies, provided me with background to the candidates where it's missing on the CV and ensured each candidate turned up. Lynsey keeps in touch, irrespective of any vacancies and provides valuable insights into the technical resource status for Exeter and the surrounding area. I recommend Lynsey for any technical recruitment requirements and for any former colleagues looking for alternate employment.'
