Who We Are

We’re a group of people from varying backgrounds and careers including hospitality, leisure and sales. There is a common trend that runs through us all – we’re all ‘people’ people and we love what we do!
We don’t try to force people into roles or companies that aren’t suitable for them. We recruit beyond skills an – we match based on values and meet each other’s requirements and expectations. And we do it really well.
Why does this matter? Let's raise our professional standards in recruitment. We're not robots; we're human. It's our raw humanity that makes us excel. Let's embrace it, not hide behind a facade of professionalism.

How We Work

For Candidates it’s simple…We get it! We’ve been there! Give us a call, talk to one of the humans in the office about your past and where you want to get in the future. Are you looking for more from your job? Perhaps less? Work life balance? Whatever it is, give us a call and let’s talk! Whilst technology plays a big part in what we do, it certainly doesn’t drive our business forward, that’d be our people!

For Clients we’ve created our own 7 stage process based on our experience of working in the recruitment industry, that we believe enables us to match candidates with employers based on mutual values, visions and requirements. It’s not rocket science, it’s honest Recruitment done the right way! By taking the time to learn as much as we can about both parties using various methods including psychometric testing and leveraging technology that means we can reduce time to hire, we deliver a highly valuable service to both candidates and employers.

Get in touch to understand how this 7-step process has reduced the time to hire by 60% for our Clients and dramatically increased staff retention.

By far the best recruitment agency I have ever worked with! They provided an exceptional service from the start till end.

Not only did both of my vacancies got filled in a short period of time, they were also the perfect candidates right away. Both candidates that I interviewed got the position.

The team was very thorough in getting to know exactly what I'm looking for and what the perfect candidate would look like.

The customer service alone can guarantee that we will continue working with The Sterling Choice in the future.


Really good level of communication which involved understanding my goals and requirements for finding a suitable role for me. A well followed through recruitment process from the first introductions to post acceptance of job offer.
