back to listings SME Profile: The Sammons Group
Welcome to The Sammons Group - a unique specialist recruitment consultancy with offices based in London, Brentwood, Eastbourne and Hastings. Founded in 1957, we are one of the longest established, independent, family-run recruitment consultancies in the UK, and we have gained an enviable reputation for choosing to work with the best employer brands and the most talented candidates in the markets in which we specialise. Our high levels of referral and recommendation stand testament to our commitment to treating our candidates and clients with the very highest level of care.
We've been placing you first since 1957.
The core values that underpin everything we do are:
We deliver a service that we would be glad to receive; one that is driven by the needs and preferences of the customer, whilst at the same time promoting best practice and fairness to all.
If you require reasonable adjustments during the recruitment process, please let us know. We welcome applications from talented individuals, and seek to assist our clients in reaching their diversity objectives, so we particularly welcome applications from those from under-represented groups.
We understand that our clients are continuously seeking to achieve improved efficiencies and added value, whilst at the same time controlling costs. We work hard to 'square the circle' of reduced spend with increased quality.
As an SME of just over 40 staff, our key differentiators are our people, and our unwavering commitment to being recognised as a market leader in terms of recruitment best practice for the sectors we cover - always seeking to go beyond compliance to promotion of excellence, with a culture of continuous improvement.
