What makes us different…

We think you’ll find us a little different to other recruitment consultants you may have come across. That’s because we are true recruitment consultants, ones that actually consult. In our view it’s a critical difference and you’ll quickly see it in the way we work with you. A recruitment process that is based on receiving a job description and sending a CV will never give you a great result. What will match the ideal candidate with their dream job is a truly consultative approach.

Work is a major part of anyone’s life, so let’s make it as enjoyable and rewarding as possible! Whether you are searching for a new role or looking to recruit someone for your team, the chemistry has to be right.

How do we achieve that? Well, we listen and truly hear you. On paper a CV could be a perfect match to a job description. But it’s only when you speak to that person and listen to their experience, their skills and motivations, that you can truly empathise with their needs and desires. And until you speak to a business and appreciate their culture, values and processes you can’t expect to fully understand their business and requirements. After all, we are matching people, not pieces of paper.

Whether searching for that next career step or recruiting for your business, our aim is to make your life easier and the process as simple as possible.

Ruth Forster

I left school at 16 with the world at my feet but no idea what to do! After falling into recruitment in 1993 I discovered that I loved it and have done ever since. I may not be a qualified engineer, but I learned a lot from my Dad who was a pretty nifty Maintenance Engineer. What gives me a thrill every day is finding people their dream job and delivering great people to work for our customers.

Stuart Cooper

Starting out in the engineering field as an apprentice at MG Rover, I progressed into a few other areas to gain more experience. As a result I think I can claim to be a pretty rounded individual! My career took me from automotive engineering, into logistics, then into technical sales for both low and high cost products, gaining me valuable business acumen. I joined Wagstaff in 2012 and as they say the rest is history! I do love the technical detail when we get a challenging role to work on and it always feels fantastic to help both client and candidate make a great match.

Sarah Hawthorne

I’ve spent my career working in ‘people’ businesses in various sectors. As a chartered management accountant, I love professional businesses that offer a fantastic service – I think I must like people more than products. Your working life is a big deal and it’s brilliant to be part of a team who are committed to helping people get the best from their career, whatever stage they may be at.

Natalie Taylor

Having spent most of my working life in Chicago, I returned home in 2016 and started to work for Wagstaff Recruitment. It’s safe to say I haven’t looked back since! I love being the ‘go to’ person and thrive on helping others, especially supporting contractors, clients and the Wagstaff team every day. Really, nothing is too much trouble.

Louise Wilson

With a real interest in people and their motivations, I started my career in recruitment within a consultancy, designing and delivering competency-based assessment centres for a whole range of clients to support their volume recruitment needs. Moving to in-house recruitment roles for IT companies, I spent a number of years sourcing, recruiting and onboarding both permanent and contract candidates across a whole range of IT roles and niche skill requirements. I have now come full circle back to recruitment consultancy, joining the team at Wagstaff to offer great recruitment experiences for both candidates and clients.
