Professional not Corporate Environment

* We believe in being professional, not corporate. Corporate companies can often be seen as robotic, faceless and process driven. * At SPS, we like our people to be just that, People! * Here at SPS, we stand out for offering a high end recruitment service but retaining an environment that is not too corporate or call center like.

Bored of working contingency? Bored of working the same old roles in the UK? Bored of recruiting the same people day after day?
