Who we are… Assured Recruitment are one of the fastest growing recruitment businesses in the UK, recruiting to culture fit for some of the most dynamic, privately owned, private equity, venture capital backed, entrepreneurial led, private sector businesses. The concept of Assured was created in February 2001 when our senior management team established an internal recruitment department for one of the fastest growing, privately owned groups in the UK. The function was responsible for top to bottom growth from 2,000 to over 12,000 staff, and the service was soon extended to the external market. When the group sold , which at the time accounted for the largest private equity sale outside of London, the function became a fully independent recruitment business; Assured Recruitment, who have the key differential of having an ‘external capability with an internal mentality’.

Recruiting to culture fit… We partner with you and become an ambassador of your culture, share your business values, and integrate with your ambition. Our consultants take the time to understand your business and its future growth plans, and then find ‘the best candidates in the market not on the market’ who have the personality to succeed in your culture. When a candidate is of the correct culture fit they are compatible with the organisations values and mode of operations. This is a crucial element of recruitment as culture impacts daily working practises and decision making; especially when hiring executives, and other managerial staff.
Uniting Ambition… In today’s workplace knowledge, intellectual capital, individual and organisational qualities represent the competitive value proposition for most companies. Although an individual’s knowledge and skills are important, they can quickly become redundant. Provided the employee fits into the organisation, and demonstrates the propensity to grow and develop, their knowledge and skills will change and grow over time - motivations and drivers however are almost impossible to change. A candidate with a good skill set who works within an environment that is fitting to their own will have the ability to succeed in their role, and achieve exceptional results. Attitude and approach are the foundation to outstanding performance and drive excellence in terms of both performance and results – so essentially our model maximises your ROI for that employee.

In short Adam, and Assured are a rare bread providing a dependable, honest and simple recruitment service.” Application Architect

Our clients… “ I have known and used Assured recruitment for a number of years and dealt with both Adam as well as a number of his colleagues. I have always found Assured very keen to understand in detail the role/ candidate profile and therefore ensure they are best able to provide the most effective short list of potential candidates. It is probably fair to say Assured have a high energy & driven culture, this ultimately has led them to be successful (a number of times) in filling positions for myself even when in competition with other organisations (as part of PSL) I would not hesitate to continue to use them in the future.” IT Director
