Putting people in jobs they love since 1998.

We founded SF Recruitment in 1998 on a simple idea. Everyone deserves to work in a job they love.

As the world of work, has transformed over the years, that defining principle is still at the heart of everything we do. It always will be.

Recruitment is a fundamentally human process. It’s detailed insight into the people on both sides of the equation that makes the process work.

Knowledge and experience of the marketplaces we operate in,

helps us to find people and companies that fit together naturally.

From our three offices in Nottingham, Birmingham and Leicester, we are the leading specialist recruitment agency in the Midlands.

The continued success of SF Recruitment is based on employing a fantastic team of people. Experts in their market, helping candidates to realise their potential, regardless of ethnicity, gender or background.

Business leaders know that success in whatever industry or area of specialism is always all about having the right talent. We are the leading specialist recruiter in the Midlands and our high performance culture ensures we are absolutely committed to finding that all-important 'natural fit' for our clients.

Our role as a recruiter is to truly understand the company culture, the market they're operating in and the business objectives in place. Only by accurately establishing this, are we truly able to place the right person, in terms of both skill and character, in a job that they love.

The best recruiter to work for.

The year 2020 saw us widely recognised as an extraordinary place to work. We believe that in order to be the best agency at advising clients and finding people and companies that fit together naturally, we have to get the work environment right at home first.

We were listed as the 5th best company in the 'Midlands Top 75 Companies to Work For'. Ensuring that we are in fact, 'the best recruiter to work for in the Midlands'.

On a national scale, SF Recruitment featured 16th in the 'Sunday Times Top 100 Small Companies to Work For', achieved the highest '3-star accreditation' for employee engagement and was commended with the national award for learning and development of our workforce.

Services for business
We know the power of business.

We're green by name, and green by nature.

We're all about bamboo. That's right, bamboo.

It reminds us of our company values and our tagline, 'a natural fit'. It also reminds us, how being strong, yet flexible helps make a great recruiter.

In 2019, we pledged as a company to become single-use plastic free.

Bamboo serves as a great alternative material for many products we order as a business. From wine boxes and desk tidies, to pens and letterhead.

Bamboo is one of the world's natural marvels and you can read more on what makes it so, and how it inspires our business below.

Our consultants have pledged to never bring single-use plastics into our offices. Ever.
