Our approach

We embrace our brand values and aims to provide employers and job seekers with a revolutionary recruitment service.

Our approach to recruitment consultancy encompasses our core values: trust, reliability, integrity and confidence. Whether you're an employer looking for a new recruit or a job seeker searching for a new challenge, we're here to help.

You're in safe hands

Quay provide recruitment consultancy designed to help our partners transition from outdated to more cutting-edge recruitment practices, reducing the overall cost to hire.

Our core aim is to provide you with a first-class recruitment service whether you're an employer seeking a new recruit or an individual looking for your next career move.

Our values underpin what the Quay brand stands for, the way we invest in our staff and our working relationships with our clients, prospects and suppliers. Our values include trust, reliability, integrity and confidence, making us a recruitment consultant of choice.

Our clients

We conduct targeted searching and advertising for candidates on Totaljobs, LinkedIn, CV Library, Reed, Jobsite and more. We utilise technology to find the best candidates and we have access to recruitment software that is used by only 1% of the industry, allowing us to find those hidden gems.

You can choose from a range of service options and rates including one that boasts a 96%+ first year retention rate, which is significantly higher than the UK national average for permanent staff. This means that once you've recruited with us, you won't have to think about it again for a long while!

We have dedicated account managers who understand your industry inside and out. We specialise in seven sectors and have an account manager for each, so you can be sure that the person dealing with your vacancy is an expert in that field.

You can have confidence in our ability to find the right person for your position. Our honesty ensures that if we can’t find someone suitable, we’ll tell you why. Time must be taken when creating a job advert and description to attract the right applicants and the best candidates may need to be convinced that you're the right employer for them. We can do this for you.

Our candidates

We offer a range of services to get you application-ready, including a CV consultation and a screening interview that will enable us to discover exactly what it is you're looking for. This means that we'll only put you forward for jobs that are suited to you in terms of content, salary and environment, which will avoid wasted time for all parties.

We promise regular communication with you whether you're successful at interview or not - we won't leave you hanging! We have a database of over 10,000 contacts so it won't take us long to match you with your ideal employer. 

If you sign up with us you'll receive a professional and reliable service. We are always honest with our candidates whether the news is good or bad as this feedback will help you improve and grow. We can also guarantee you security – we will not release your personal details anywhere or to anyone without your permission, so you can rest assured that your privacy is protected.
