Who are we?

Welcome to

The Recruitment Group

we're #poweredbypeople

We're steeped in history having serviced our local communities, candidates and clients for over 40 years.

Our newly-formed group has been made up of 6 of the region's best independent agencies, all of whom have been incredibly successful in their own right. We've joined forces as The Recruitment Group because all 6 of these agencies shared the same goal of putting the human touch back into recruitment.

Covering a multitude of sectors across multiple locations needs experienced characters at the helm and there are none better in the industry than Paul Hipkiss and Mark Taylor with a combined agency senior management and director level experience between them of over 45 years they know what it takes to make a successful recruitment business. Having 2 Managing Directors within the group allows each to play to their strengths, Mark having a wealth of knowledge, experience and insight into the heavily regulated world of 'food' and FMCG will be focusing on growing this sector for the business, whilst Paul will be managing 8 of our central branches and the remaining 9 sectors.

Corporate Social Responsibility

In our marketplace, in our workforce, in our communities, in us.

For us, it's important that we focus on our obligations as a corporate citizen, the obligations to our clients and also to the communities in which we live and work. Our employment policies not only comply with all relevant legislation, but seek to exceed standard requirements and expectations thus ensuring that the working environment across the business embraces diversity and offers fairness and equality of opportunity in every respect.

For us thinking 'like this' is a way of life. We are always looking to reduce our carbon footprint, being responsible and caring for the environment around us and looking to engage with local suppliers at every opportunity.

Our workplace is centred around the mental health, physical health and wellbeing of all of our employees and we offer a number of ways for our staff to ensure that they are looking after themselves and one another.

We are always looking for the next challenge we can do to raise money for charity and will soon be partnering with a charity of choice for the up and coming years activities.

With our head office based in Loughborough and the university being such a key part of the town, we thought it fitting that we created a 'partnership' with them, not only for assisting their business attracting the right people, helping the local students find work, but also with something new and exciting that is soon to be revealed......
