Why choose Downtown Recruitment for your employment needs?

Whatever the calibre of person or level of position, we apply the same consistently high standards to our recruitment process. Here are a few reasons why it makes sense to choose Downtown Recruitment as your recruitment partner.
Understanding your needs

Wherever possible, clients will receive a visit from one of our experienced consultants or an in depth telephone discussion. Downtown Recruitment considers it important to understand your business, its structure and the culture of your company. We will also try and help you establish a clear job description and the current skills required/desired for your particular role.


Downtown has been successfully recruiting since 1986 and has fully trained and experienced consultants. Our two permanent consultants (Jane Watkinson and Pam Ashby) have 45 years plus combined recruitment experience. Jane Connor, our Temporaries Desk Consultant has 5 years recruitment experience and our Managing Partner (Steve Young) 14 years.

Quality Pre-selection

Each candidate is individually interviewed and profiled before being submitted for any vacancy.

Cost effective

For permanent or contract staff no placement means no fee! We also provide competitive terms with a 12 week rebate period for permanent placements. In fact, we are so confident in selecting the right "permanent candidates" that we offer a 4 week 100% refund in the unlikely event that they don't work out*. Temporary staff provide flexibility to meet the demands of your business without commitment and at short notice. They can be provided for short term (as little as half a day) to long term assignments (several months). Employing temporary staff saves the additional costs of National Insurance, Holidays and absence through sickness or maternity leave etc. Don't forget that this can add anything from 20-30% to your standard salary costs.

Local Knowledge

We have extensive local knowledge of the market, including local salary levels.


Advertising costs are included in our fee, so no extra charge to you.


Downtown has been successfully recruiting since 1986 and has fully trained and experienced consultants. Jane Connor our Senior Recruitment Consultant has over 10 years recruitment experience and our Managing Partner (Steve Young) has 24 years of industry experience.

Employment Legislation

We are fully up to date with important changes to employment law that may affect your business or employee rights.

Service Level

Our intention is to provide an exceptional service; we are committed to ensuring that we continue to exceed both client and candidate expectations as our reputation and continued success depends on it.

* Please note that the 100% refund and 12 week rebate period only applies to permanent placements or contract placements of 12 months or more, where a full fee has been paid and excludes temporary to permanent placements. See our Terms of Business for full details.
