Why us?

Every recruitment company will tell you that they provide a fantastic service, but we are one of the few who actually deliver. We are also one of the few to provide both general commercial recruitment as well as expert senior executive recruitment services.

Our clients are very important to us, and we strive to work face-to-face with our hiring managers to ensure we have a thorough understanding of each role, and are able to recognise the ideal candidate for them. Our level of service is unparalleled, and we pride ourselves on our dedication.

We know that any company’s greatest resource is their staff; we meticulously process, interview, and reference every one of our candidates. We also offer full DBS disclosure packages for candidates that require extra levels of clearance. Our personalised service ensures that the CVs we send you are matched to your job description and requirements, helping to save your valuable time, and freeing you to focus on what you do best.

Our candidates can expect regular updates and suggestions for roles for which we think they would be suitable, while our website serves as our main portal to make finding your ideal role a quick and simple process.

We believe that working closely with both our candidates and our clients makes us exceptionally well qualified to match the right person with the right role.

We also assist our clients in staying current with evolving legislation and best practice. For over 10 years, Lorraine has been providing our clients with access to our exclusive Employment Law Seminars.

Jaynie – UK HR Director

“I have worked with Pursuit Recruitment for a number of years now and always find them a professional organisation to deal with. Having taken the time to get to know our organisation, Lorraine Phair and her team work closely with us to get further information over and above the job spec to make sure that the right quality of candidates are submitted, both in terms of skill, attitude and aptitude. Their candidate care is excellent, roles are obviously discussed with candidates before they are submitted to us and it is clear that candidates are fully briefed prior to interview. Therefore, the CV to interview rate is high, as is Pursuit’s interview to hire rate.

The service Pursuit provides us with goes beyond just recruitment. From supporting us in our continued professional development to providing timely market information, Pursuit provide a bespoke, boutique persona whilst maintaining a big-company presence.

I would not hesitate to recommend Pursuit as an organisation.”
