Essential Personnel work with ambitious SMEs and blue-chip companies in Stockport, Greater Manchester and the North-West to connect them with highly motivated and engaged staff who will drive business growth. Our six step process ensures we find the right people for your team with a 93% success rate!

We meet with all our clients face to face to discuss the specific requirements of the role. As well as the necessary skills and experience, we look to build a picture of your business values and objectives. This in-depth investigation allows us to effectively source the perfect candidate and provide them with an accurate overview of what it will be like to work for you.

We target the very brightest candidates through headhunting and executive search, social media and through our extensive referral network that comes from providing an excellent service to our candidates for over 10 years. We don’t just rely on traditional recruitment methods such as job boards, online CV databases.

Our rigorous screening process involves meeting every single Bright Spark in person – this allows us to best match the perfect candidate to help your business grow. We’ll only recommend candidates we feel are an impeccable match for your business culture, as well as having the necessary skills for the role.

We co-ordinate the entire recruitment process – organising interviews and providing honest feedback to all parties.  Let us know your availability, and we’ll do the rest and take all the stress out of the arrangements. We’re dedicated to ensuring the recruitment process runs as smoothly as possible, for both our clients and our candidates.

We manage the offer process, handling any salary or benefits negotiations between yourself and the candidate on your behalf. We can help steer candidates through counter-offers and remain in touch with the successful candidate, right up to their start date.

Our service doesn’t end once the candidate starts. We conduct regular check-ins to ensure you and your new recruit are thoroughly happy with the placement. If any issues should arise, we can offer guidance, support and feedback to both parties.
