About

Welcome to The Sammons Group - a unique specialist recruitment consultancy with offices based in London, Brentwood, Eastbourne and Hastings.  Founded in 1957, we are one of the longest established, independent, family-run recruitment consultancies in the UK, and we have gained an enviable reputation for choosing to work with the best employer brands and the most talented candidates in the markets in which we specialise.  Our high levels of referral and recommendation stand testament to our commitment to treating our candidates and clients with the very highest level of care. 

We deliver a service that we would be glad to receive; one that is driven by the needs and preferences of the customer, whilst at the same time promoting best practice and fairness to all.

If you require reasonable adjustments during the recruitment process, please let us know.  We welcome applications from talented individuals, and seek to assist our clients in reaching their diversity objectives, so we particularly welcome applications from those from under-represented groups.

We understand that our clients are continuously seeking to achieve improved efficiencies and added value, whilst at the same time controlling costs.  We work hard to 'square the circle' of reduced spend with increased quality.

As an SME of just over 30 staff, our key differentiators are our people, and our unwavering commitment to being recognised as a market leader in terms of recruitment best practice for the sectors we cover - always seeking to go beyond compliance to promotion of excellence, with a culture of continuous improvement.

Testimonials

I have been with Sammons for nearly a year as a temp and during that time I have rarely been out of work. They look after their team well and are always ready to sort any problems. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

Frank

I have worked with Sammons for around three years now and have no interest in taking my skills elsewhere, it is the most supportive team I have yet to come across. The organisation really does care about putting peoples skills in the appropriate setting and ensuring that their staff get the work they are looking for. All the best guys and keep the hardwork up.

Frith L

I can't rate the Hastings team highly enough. They found the perfect role for me and I was lucky enough to be made permanent. A friendly team who place people where they are best suited, not just what benefits them. If I'm ever looking for a job again I would definitely choose Sammons.

Linda E

Brilliant service - so efficient and quick with getting you set up and looking for jobs. I was contacted within a day of applying and brought in to fill in and sign documents. All the staff are lovely and friendly. I would highly recommend Sammons, especially in Hastings! I was in a job within a week of signing up! Couldn't ask for more.

Becci D

I have no hesitation in giving The Sammons Group a 5 star rating due to the helpfulness and desire in them trying to find me employment. Their tenacity paid off and they set me up with a job interview of which on the very same day, indeed a few hours after the interview, I was given a job. So well done to all at Sammons who ensured that I was fully briefed with all I needed to know. Very happy indeed.

Malcolm R

The courteous and prompt follow-up of all actions was one of the best features. Sarah B-M handled all concerns and queries thrown her way with a professional approach and ensured satisfactory follow up through her regular correspondence. At all points through the process I knew exactly where we were and what was coming up next.

Nicola C

Sarah was very professional and listened and responded to our needs and expectations.

Phillippa L

Natalie was really fantastic, she ensured that I didn't waste time with roles that weren't for me or that I wasn't suited for. Natalie was understanding and supportive throughout, even when I was indecisive. I couldn't believe how quickly I had a new role and one that I am so chuffed with. Many thanks to the whole team but primarily Natalie.

Larissa A

I approached Sarah about a vacancy I'd seen in PMI News. From the first point of contact until after I'd started my new job I found Sarah totally professional and very approachable. She kept me informed and acted as a great conduit for my questions.  I would not hesitate to recommend Sarah to any candidates looking for roles within the pensions industry.

Judith C

The service provided by Sammons to  me has always been efficient and timely.  I currently manage two temp administrators supplied by Sammons.  Both have precisely met our requirements.  One has vast experience and brings real added value to the role.  The second has worked in all three of our bases and is industrious and flexible.

Patrick M

I have been registered with Sammons twice over a number of years and on both occasions they have managed to secure me a good placement for long term employment with jobs suited to my particular skills. Both placements have been with good employers.

David J

Very good recruitment agency - they never let me down

Petr K

Staff are very friendly and very helpful in finding me a job and supported me with any questions along the way. Would recommend Sammons for others seeking employment. 

Ruth I

The Sammons recruitment agency is great! Lovely bunch of people doing their best to find the right job for you. I would definitely recommend this agency and would use them again (but I hope I won't have to ) as they found me the perfect job I have been searching for!

Lucy C

This is the first time that I have applied for a job via a recruitment agency, ordinarily all the positions I have applied for, interviewed for and offered position to have been direct applications to the relevant organisations. Sarah was very positive and gave good advice and was very motivational. I would definitely continue to use Sammons based on my positive experience and would recommend you to my colleagues current and past for any future recruitment requirements.

Deborah P

Jo has placed me in a number of positions over the years, including jobs at prominent companies such as The Daily Mail, National Grid and Swiss Reinsurance. I would only ever use Sammons when looking to further my career. I cannot recommend Jo highly enough!
