Your future, our job!
At Essential we have one goal, to match talented individuals with the very best job opportunities. Currently we assist the recruitment and staffing requirements for a number of Public Sector contracts, as well as aiding a number of national clients in various industries across the UK.
The battle that companies face in capturing the best talent is creating fierce competition across all sectors. Here at Essential Employment, we have proven over many years that we constantly go out of our way to adapt to our client’s changing needs – sourcing great talent whilst delivering a high calibre and compliant service since 2006.
Our latest jobs
I’m looking for a job
At Essential, we recognise that the candidates we meet have unique circumstances and ideas of where they want their career to go. We want to listen to you and we will offer professional advice from our REC qualified experts– and any decisions we make regarding your career and job prospects will be made with a joint consensus of opinion – ours and most importantly yours.
We’re very honest in how we can help you, we believe in strong lines of communication, and we’ll work proactively on your behalf to agreed time scales.
I’m looking to recruit
At Essential Employment we do not try to disguise recruitment as a process that is more complex than it should be. When we meet new clients for the first time we don’t turn up with overcomplicated flow diagrams and glossy presentations describing how we’re going to find the perfect candidates – we like to demonstrate our ability with actions and results.
Our business is owner led and both directors take a hands on role in the day to day running of the business – bringing a personal commitment to our clients and candidates.
