The East of England is an exciting playground for ambitious recruiters who want to be a part of defining and growing local workforces and really contributing to the success of the local economy.

Many say recruitment is not rocket science, but it's certainly demanding work and requires a certain type of inquisitive, driven, and tenacious personality to be any good at it! We are one of the smaller players in West Suffolk but what we lack in size we make up for in knowledge and expertise. Our clients and candidates keep returning to because we deliver. Our process is transparent, our localised knowledge is unrivalled, and we treat our profession with respect.

You will be sitting on a warm Accountancy desk, delivering 360 recruitment and will be greeted with a reputable and highly respected brand, an established candidate pool and a wealth of existing clients!
