Pertemps Invest in People

As an Investor in People, we are proud to have been recognised as one of Britain’s top employers in several independent reviews:

We have been on the Sunday Times 'Top 100 Companies to Work For' list every year since 2007.

We placed 24th in the list of 'Best Large Companies to Work For' in the UK, the highest placed recruitment firm.

We also ranked 1st in Scotland and 11th in the West Midlands in the regional lists.

Best Companies have accredited us with three stars for 'World Class Employee Engagement'.


All new starters undertake a 2-day induction and our in-house Training division offers Apprenticeships and modular Training programmes designed to cover every level within our business.

Employees can work with our specialist team to build their development pathway according to their goals and aspirations.



Monthly Newsletters and regular e-shots ensure everyone is kept up to date with developments across our business and industry.

This also enables us to showcase success, achievements and work within the local community or for charity. Each edition includes news stories about featured colleagues and teams.



Our benefits package includes additional holiday entitlement that increases with length of service. Perkbox, offers high street discounts, savings and freebies and an award-winning Share Scheme.

By offering our employees a genuine stake in the business, Pertemps strongly believes that our people will be more motivated and dedicated to their roles. Especially if, as a shareholder, the value of those shares increases as a direct result of your own hard work.


Support & Welfare

All our employees have 1-2-1's with their Managers and our flat structure ensures everyone also has access to our Board of Directors.

Our MDs regularly ‘walk the floor’ – visiting our branches and contract teams to speak to our teams in person.

From a pastoral care perspective, we offer an Employee Assistance Programme which gives our employees free access to qualified professionals via a 24-hour helpline should they need confidential, objective advice and support on a wide range of issues from personal, family crises, illness to financial problems.

Perkbox provides an integrated video channel with thousands of videos on fitness, cooking and general wellbeing for employees plus discounts at 5000+ Gyms and Salons nationwide.

There are also exclusive rates on healthcare and dental through Westfield Health and Denplan.

Awards and Recognition

Pertemps believe that a “thank you” goes a long way and that, while money is a strong motivator, in itself it is not enough to keep motivation levels high so we show our appreciation to our staff in a number of ways:

Our Board of Directors remain close to the business and constantly monitor everybody’s progress at whatever level within the company.

Employees are directly congratulated on their achievements and Regional Directors arrange social events to celebrate success and encourage teamwork.

We also host an annual awards ceremony celebrating contribution to the business, achievements, long-service and commitment to local communities / charity.

The greatest accolade of each ceremony is the Connie Watts Award, named after our Founder and given by Tim Watts, Connie’s son. This award celebrates outstanding commitment and dedication to the role and company.

Awards and Recognition

Charity Work

Support for local and national charities is always encouraged and supported, and we match funds raised by our employees in order to support their initiatives.

Fundraising is applauded and showcased company-wide in our monthly internal newsletters and at our annual awards ceremony.

What Our People Say About Us

We believe we’re a great company to work for, but don't just take our word for it. Hear first-hand what our own people think of us.

I've been with the business for 25 years and started way back in 1997, straight from university.
It is very rewarding but you need to be working with an employer that is going to invest the time and the training into your growth.

Guy Haughton
Pertemps Regional Manager

I think it’s the way the company look after you. It’s a family feel environment and that’s what I love about it.
You have your ups, you have your downs and when you’re having your downs the company’s very, very supportive.
I started recruitment with no experience whatsoever and this is my 4th year and now I’ve got a team. I achieve my targets, I’m ambitious.

Sharaz Mohamed
Recruitment Team Lead

...that development led to senior management seeing that potential, then coming to me with a new opportunity of management.
The next stage would be area manager, to regional manager after that...
