Hire the way you want

With Brook Street 

We’re the people that employers turn to when they want a local recruitment partner, but don’t want to compromise on transparency, quality or efficiency. We’re in towns and cities up and down the country, so we truly understand the challenges and opportunities that face employers. This means we take a completely tailored approach to hiring the people your business needs. It also means we’re the first port of call for local people looking for a new job - giving us an extensive  talent pool of pre-qualified talent that are ready and raring to go.

Our on-the-ground experience is underpinned by a national infrastructure and state-of-the-art technology. This gives us the ability to seamlessly deliver end-to-end, responsive, analytics-led recruitment services that align to real-time business needs. It doesn’t matter if you’re recruiting on a one-off basis, or need longer-term support. It doesn’t even matter if you need to recruit one person or thousands. At Brook Street, we have all the experience needed to get your team up to full capacity and running at full speed. That’s why we’ve been the go-to recruiter for local employers for over 75 years.

What We Do

Our services and solutions

It doesn’t matter if you’re recruiting on a one-off basis, or need longer-term support to scale up your workforce. It doesn’t even matter if you need to recruit one person, or a whole team. At Brook Street, we have all the experience needed to get your team up to full capacity and running at full speed. That’s why we’ve been the go-to recruiter for local employers for over 75 years. Our recruitment services include:

Temporary & Permanent Recruitment

Thousands of employers turn to Brook Street every year, for temporary and permanent recruitment services that set their business apart. They choose us because we offer proven attraction tactics, rigorous screening and checking, value for money and swift results, no matter how last minute the request. Most of all, we offer a personal service. From offering 24/7 support, to enhanced compliance checks, and more – our tailored approach means we’ll find the perfect people to join your business.

Managed Services

For large scale hiring, our Managed Services allow you to completely outsource your company’s internal recruitment function to Brook Street. With the support of our dedicated onsite team, your HR team will be able to focus on core planning and management responsibilities, while we take care of the entire hiring process. From supplier screening to employer branding, and more - your organisation will benefit from enhanced quality, reduced risks, cost efficiencies and, most of all, peace of mind.

Preferred and Sole Supplier

You may not plan on recruiting in great volumes – but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some of the benefits of a more formal recruitment arrangement.  Appoint us to your Preferred Supplier List (PSL), and when you’re ready to recruit, we’ll be able to start work immediately, significantly reducing your time-to-hire. Alternatively, you could make us your Sole Supplier. As your only recruitment partner, we’ll be able to simplify, refine and streamline every step of your hiring process, further reducing your time-to-hire and allowing for additional cost savings.

Not matter how many vacancies or who you're looking to recruit, send us a job description and your local consultant will be in touch.

  • With technology transforming how organisations operate, the role of HR has never been more important.

We’re proud to recruit and retain the workers our clients need to drive their business forward.

  • We’re the UK’s largest supplier of temporary administrative and clerical workers to central government and the wider public sector.
