    Recruitment agencies

    Occasionally our internal recruitment team needs some support on those difficult-to-fill roles and we fully recognise that a good recruitment agency can be a vital part of the process. So we've created a Preferred Supplier List of trusted partners to help us when required.

    This means that any speculative CVs or unsolicited candidate introductions from agencies who are not on our PSL will be treated as gifts.

    We’re not currently looking to add any more agencies to the PSL and we would really appreciate you refraining from contacting any of our managers or recruitment team with sales calls or details of your candidates.

    Please contact the UK Recruitment team for more information.
