We’re Talent Acquisition Specialists that founded change in 2005. Since then we’ve helped over 2500 clients grow, prosper and lead.

# Our Story

Frustrated by poor experiences with traditional agencies, our founders (just two regular candidates), decided that the outdated industry needed modernising and a new balance of power. In 2005, a new kind of agency model was born, putting the client and candidate at the heart of the experience whilst removing the pushy sales, schmooze and high fees.

# What makes us different?

Aside from a sensible fee model, custom technology and a direct unhindered path to candidates we…

…don’t sell candidates and we don’t sell jobs: we facilitate relationships and champion the process of ‘organic hiring’ to help create stronger and longer-lasting engagements.

# Who we work with

With an industry reputation for delivering results we are the go-to talent finders for tech start-ups to global brands who all demand the best service and talent.

From business owners hiring 2 people a year to Internal Recruiting teams hiring 200+ people a year, RR sources talent across all sectors and levels.

# Reputation

Our expertise has also been called upon by some of the leading job boards including the UK’s No1.

Recruitment Revolution is a member of the REC with a 100% compliance pass rate and holds a Feefo 5* Platinum Award for Service.
