The Four Recruitment Team

Choosing Four Recruitment means working with a passionate, enthusiastic team who pride themselves on doing a great job.  As a family business, we have real values and genuinely want to help our clients to build a fantastic team.

To us, recruiting the right individual for a particular vacancy relies on getting a few things right:

1. We get under the skin of our clients business and culture, to truly understand the make-up of the organisation.

2. We use our sector knowledge to look beyond the role and responsibilities to build up an accurate picture of the right candidate.

3. We handpick a small selection of people based on skill-set, cultural-fit and personal aspirations.

Sounds obvious? It is. But, most recruitment consultants don’t deliver on all three. We do and that’s what makes us Four.



Being fair, working hard, delivering the kind of high quality customer service we demand from others that's what makes us Four.

So here's a list of commercially focused benefits designed to deliver on just that and to ease the burden of recruitment and, we hope, attract a long-term client relationship rather than just filling a single vacancy brief.

Four Payment Plan

With Four you don't even have to pay the recruitment fee in one lump sum.  With our Four Payment Plan you can pay over four instalments with no interest costs just a small administration fee.  What's more, if the candidate we place leaves your employment within the first 16 weeks then we'll look at their replacement free of charge.


If you'd like to extend our 16 week guarantee to a full year, you can add the equivalent of recruitment insurance to the fixed fee at the outset.

Four Loyalty

We aim to build long-term relationships with our clients.  If we fill Four vacancies within a year then we'll knock 50% off your fourth recruitment fee, thats it, simple, no strings attached.

Four Extras

Four offers a range of added-value 'Extras' that we continue to review and adapt with regular candidate and client input.  This includes psychometric testing, in house training, networking events and management consultancy services.

If you have any queries or want to find out more, then please contact one of our consultants on 0161 834 3479 or 01204 498 044.
