Our team of recruitment specialists take a deep dive into getting to know your company’s specific requirements before we begin a recruitment campaign. This includes running targeted marketing campaigns on your behalf, as well as matching from our exclusive candidate pool.

Candidates are all comprehensively interviewed, using competency-based questions and baseline DISC profiling where required.

Fantastic friendly and helpful service. Big thank you for the help getting me back to work and exceeding all expectations. I highly recommend this agency.

I have used Truly Tailored recruitment since 2010 and they have never let me down. Always paid attention to my skills and capabilities and placed me into some fantastic roles. Truly Tailored Recruitment have shaped my career and I couldn’t be more grateful. They have always been on hand to offer me good, professional advice. I can’t recommend them enough, the best recruitment agency in the area by a country mile.

I have recently used Truly Tailored Recruitment to assist me with finding a new recruit in a sales function. They took the time to really understand us as a business, our culture and the type of people we work best with. That coupled with their understanding of candidates they were able to present us with the right person, saving unnecessary interviewing times for us and their candidates. We have been waiting for a long time to find someone who fits with us and I can’t tell you how excited I am about our new recruit.

Top marks. I’m registered with over 8 agencies and this one seems to really care about candidates and clients, and deliver roles or interviews.

Amazing! By far the best recruitment agency in Gloucestershire. Professional and efficient. I have used them a couple of times and they have always found me something straight away, more importantly it’s the right position for what I wanted. I normally deal with Abi, but everyone there is friendly and helpful when I’ve spoken to them. I can’t recommend them enough.

Best agency that I have ever worked with. It feels like they are working for you. Staff are pleasant and take the time to know you to be able to direct you for the job that will match your profile. Thank you !

Wonderful, friendly service, great and fast result in finding us a new employee who is a month in and doing a brilliant job. They listened to what we needed and provided valuable advice. Highly recommended!

Very professional and kind recruitment agency. My consultant has been a massive help and I have had the privilege to have her support. Your team has had a massive impact on my new career and I will be forever grateful of that. Thank you again to all of Truly Tailored Recruitment Team.
