Why employers choose Essential Employment?

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.

We are fully compliant with our governing body The Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) and we have achieved ISO9001:2015 status in quality management and our service has led to nominations for business awards.

We constantly review all our services and our recruiters have their own tailored CPD programmes designed towards remaining up to date and compliant with any changes in recruitment and employment law.

Our aim is to give our clients total confidence in our ability to recruit for and represent their business in the most professional and risk-free manner.
