Home / Our services / Contract and Permanent Recruitment


Every client and every project is different. So, whether you're looking to fill contract or permanent positions, we take the time to get the measure of your company, its wider context and what matters to you.


Only when we have fully understood and agreed the strategic objectives, do we establish the criteria for selecting candidates and the time-scales involved.

And we move fast. In many cases, we can source specialists with the skills you need from our own network. If required, we cast the net wider.

Our shortlisted candidates will all have been job-matched and interviewed to check that they are offering the necessary technical competence and soft skills. At the same time, we will confirm that they are right for your organisation, using psychometric evaluation, where appropriate, to help determine whether their personality and style of working is a good fit.




As Harkand's business has grown, so have their recruitment requirements. In particular, they needed to find a number of senior permanent staff to work in their head office.



Simpson Booth's role

To support Harkand, we first took the time to get to know them and their business. This enabled us to be confident that we were sourcing the type of candidates who would be a good fit for their corporate culture.

We then applied our recruitment methodology to select a suitable short list for the positions to be filled. Once this had been further reduced, we provided Harkland with psychometric profiles of the few remaining candidates, to assist them in coming to an informed final decision.


"I engaged Simpson Booth to support us in the recruitment of several roles, following the relocation of our head office.

I found their approach to be open, honest and flexible in terms of meeting our needs. They quickly understood the requirements of the senior positions we needed to fill, including both the technical competencies and the team fit. They also have a strong understanding of the market, which enabled them to engage well with potential candidates. They communicated regularly with us throughout the recruitment process and I would have no hesitation in using them again."
