Our Story

Celebrating over 60 years 1957-2018

Established  over 60 years ago as Josephine Sammons Limited, the company now known as The Sammons Group, started as a family-run secretarial agency in London.   These days the name ‘Sammons’ is known across the UK and we have a proven track record of delivering a quality recruitment solution to a diverse range of clients across the UK and overseas - whilst still remaining a family-run, independent consultancy.

We were founded on trust and confidentiality and remain committed to providing a quality, professional service.  The same care and attention to detail is given to all assignments, regardless of their size and nature - whether an assignment for a temporary messenger or an industry-leading director.

Clients and candidates come to us because they know that our consultants offer unmatched expertise, integrity, first-hand knowledge of specialist fields - and, above all, discretion.  They return to us time and time again because they know our service cannot be beaten - which is why the majority of our work comes through repeat business and recommendation.

Since those early beginnings in the 1950s, our directors developed the business through a process of customer-driven, organic growth from its  roots in the City of London to encompass more specialist divisions - and in 2000, we opened what proved to be an enormously successful branch in Havelock Road, Hastings, followed by the opening of our Eastbourne branch in 2004, and our Brentwood branch in 2012.   Our branches have gone from strength to strength and continue to give something back to their local communities.

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!

Spencer V

Amazing Staff.  I worked for Sammons Hastings for just over a year.  I always had work and they never sent me anywhere I was not qualified to do.  Always very informative.

Elizabeth C

I have been working with Sammons for over a year.  As well as keeping me in regular work, I have found them to be friendly and professional.  Unlike some of the other agencies I have worked with they have always paid me on time and correctly.  The staff in the office are incredibly helpful and are always willing to help with any problems that I have had.

Henry F

Great Agency.  Always willing to help.  Found fast temp employment through them which led to a permanent position.

Steve W

Sammons have found me a very suitable job and been friendly and supportive at all times.

Jon S

I have used Sammons Group in both Hastings and Eastbourne.  Had some brilliant jobs from them.  Whenever I have called or emailed they are all professional and polite.  Great agency to work with and fully recommend them.

Shirley P

For me, it's quite simple: the consultant I dealt with (Ben Christensen) was the best I've encountered in recruitment. As a candidate, there was really not much more I could have asked for!

Martin O

Faye was lovely to speak to, updated me with all updates I needed and sent a welcome package out with a card to my new place of work which I thought was a really thoughtful touch.

William D

Natalie dealt with me while Ben was away and I thought she was superb. She was polite, friendly, had knowledge of me and the vacancy I was going for and responded to my queries quickly.

Roger G

Quick to respond, knowledgeable, easy to talk to.

Colin B

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 fantastic. She kept me updated regularly and was very supportive. She provided me with excellent information which really helped at interview. I felt she wanted me to succeed which gave me confidence in my abilities.

I think the team at Sammons are great so it would be difficult to suggest improvements.

An excellent specialist knowledge of the market and candidates.

Sarah was fantastic. She was incredibly knowledgeable in her space, and made the hiring process very easy. She really listened to our requirements and understood what we were looking for.
