A Passion For People

We’re passionate about what we do. Our business was born in 2007 from a genuine desire to place the right person in the right job; this belief is key to our whole ethos.

  • We care – we want to place quality candidates that stay with a business, so we care about understanding what matters to the clients and candidates we work with
  • Consistency matters – our two directors founded Bagnall Hopkins with service at our core and all our team live that value. Our long-serving consultants, with more than 7 years average service, help us create that consistency
  • Service as individual as you are – finding the right person for the right position (or vice versa) is what means 80% of our clients use our services more than once and 87% of candidates recommend us to their friends

Where We Recruit

We think we're great... but don't just take our word for it

Thank you so much for the support, guidance and opportunities that you have given me over the last few months. Previously, when I have registered with an agency, I have felt like a number and not felt that they were actually looking at what I had done or listening to what I wanted to do. This was the total opposite of my experience with Bagnall Hopkins.  At all times I have felt that you genuinely cared and wanted the best for me. For that I am very grateful.

James – Candidate

Kate and her team at Bagnall Hopkins are independent recruitment specialists with a difference. They offer, what I believe is, an excellent candidate experience. As a job seeker, I had first hand experience of Bagnall Hopkins and their professional and friendly environment was unlike any I have seen before. Kate and her team took the time to understand the type of role I was looking for. This was followed by a sterling and successful effort on their part to find me what I wanted. They recruit for a range of roles and I would highly recommend them!

Martine Kettles HR Advisor

I approached Laura to help me with a stores controller vacancy that we needed to recruit for within a short time frame, without compromising on quality of both candidate and service. From the outset, Laura listened carefully to our requirements and advised me on the current job market in this particular area. She presented well briefed and prepared candidates who not only understand the specification, but also our business. We were able to appoint a candidate within a couple of weeks of giving Laura the brief and the process has been straight forward from start to finish. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Laura to any businesses who are looking to work alongside a specialist procurement consultant to help assess and fulfill their requirements.

Sally has supported our business recruitment needs for a number of years. Sally has always been professional, organised and sent us the right quality and fit candidates. Sally is great to work with understands our needs and culture and very effective and efficient. I would definitely recommend Sally and the Bagnall Hopkins team.

I am loving my new role – it is perfect.  Because everyone at Bagnall Hopkins is geared up to look for local jobs for local people, they are aware of travel restrictions and know their area. They spend time getting to know candidates and time getting to know clients – the result?  A perfect match!!  I have recommended Bagnall Hopkins to my former colleagues who are facing impending redundancy like I was.  Cannot praise Sally, Laura and the team enough.
