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. Headed up by Cindy Johnson FIRP DipRP and Kate Tilleard FIRP, alongside our knowledgeable consultants we have over 75 years combined expertise and with industry specific, qualified team members who work strictly to the REC Code of Professional Practice you can rest assured you are in the best hands.

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 administration around Employers National Insurance, Annual Leave, Sick Leave and Statutory Pension payments as we do all of that for you.

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 you can be absolutely guaranteed of our confidentiality throughout the recruitment journey. We work strictly to the REC Code of Practice, in line with GDPR regulations and are registered with the ICO registration No Z8012767.

Employment Legislation

Having been members of the REC for over 25 years, we have a team of industry specific legal advisors on hand should we need them, alongside access to bespoke training courses for our team to undertake. We receive regular tailored legal bulletins on any legislative updates, case law and prospective changes. We also undertake an annual compliance test / audit with the REC in which we score 100% repeatedly.

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.
