From Small Beginnings

Three founding Directors, a rather tiny office , no database or Linkedin, but with a vision that recruitment could be done differently. Better Placed was born with simple values of honesty, trust and knowledge. Plenty has changed over the last 15 years but the fundamentals of what we do remain the same… meeting people, understanding what makes them tick and building our networks.

A Career with us:

We work with some of the world’s leading brands and the best talent in the market. Staying true to our values and the principles of The Real Network, we offer you the platform and environment to build your network and earn well along the way. Without the burden of micro - management and KPi's we believe in a more "grown up" approach to recruitment based on trust. With a fantastic culture, where people actually enjoy coming to work we also offer unrivalled career opportunities. For those less experienced, or even new to the industry, you will be given the training and support to make the transition and ultimately thrive within a fast paced and friendly team.

Our three Founding Directors... Andrew, Simon and Dean.

What makes us different :

Something we call “The Real Network “– its our guiding principle to recruitment and part of our DNA. So whats it all about… one of our fundamental beliefs is that great placement isn't about hurling masses of CV’s at clients you don’t really understand. Rather, its about matching candidates and employers through deep insights and strong networks. You can’t do that reliably unless you take the time to develop an understanding of both candidates and employers which goes well beyond the superficial. As a business we encourage our Consultants to not be over reliant on just linkedin, or the latest social media channel, but to get out of the office and spend time with their clients and candidates.
