We are a highly experienced recruitment agency within the Food, FMCG and Engineering sectors

Who we are

Our in-house team is highly experienced in placing professionals into the Food, FMCG and Engineering sectors. We work with leading SMEs and global organisations across the UK and internationally, priding ourselves on delivering an honest and transparent service. Please do not put us in the same category as a number of other recruitment organisations, we are not a sales company!

We have worked in partnership with a number of candidates and clients for years and will continue to do so. Our consultants have in-depth knowledge of the sectors they recruit and are continued leaders within their profession. We take the time to research the businesses we work with and understand the candidates we represent.
