What our clients say

Grassroots offer a personal and genuine service which was important to us when recruiting a new person... Coming in to meet the team and find out more about our company culture was important to us as a small business. Equally, Grassroots’s willingness to create a partnership that works for both of us was important and helped us to feel secure in the service we were using.

Partnerships Manager

Events Management Company, Manchester

Having dealt with a number of recruitment agencies over the years, Grassroots Recruitment has been among the best. Their speed and quality of communication kept us informed as to the progress of the candidate search and we were able to send an offer to a suitable candidate within a week of the search beginning. I would have no hesitation in recommending Grassroots Recruitment to any company looking for quality staff and a simple, reasonably priced service.

Operations Manager

Wealth Management Company, Wilmslow

This was the most efficient recruitment process I have been involved with. Grassroots took time to understand our organisation, products and markets. Putting this together with a clear insight of our candidate requirements they quickly sourced some excellent candidates for initial telephone screening. The whole process was expertly coordinated and at I was kept up to date at all times regarding appointments, candidates’ feedback and a review of progress.

I highly recommend Grassroots to support your business needs – you won’t be disappointed!"

What our candidates say

Rick has been the only recruiter to have actually taken an interest in my application and thought laterally about it, understanding my qualifications and experience and being able to marry them to the client’s needs and make a connection where many haven’t. I was offered the position before I even arrived home after the interview! I can’t thank Rick enough for this and he is certainly deserving of commendation.



Rick has been brilliant throughout my job search and has kept me updated throughout. I will definitely use Grassroots again in the future. Thanks for everything!

Excellent service throughout, very polite and helpful.

For once I applied for a job and was put forward for the interview instead of the usual railroading into positions that are actually available and completely irrelevant to my experience.

As a result I am very grateful to Grassroots because they have changed my quality of life and my families through their hard work and understanding of my requirements.

Finance Administrator

"Since registering with Grassroots, Caroline has been in contact with me throughout the recruitment process.
