About SF Recruitment

SF Recruitment is the leading specialist recruiter in the Midlands. They help clients of all sizes, find great people from all demographics and backgrounds to fill permanent and interim roles across finance, technology, office support, HR, procurement, supply chain, and engineering.

Founded in 1998, SF started out focused initially on finance recruitment and over time as they developed a deeper understanding of the Midlands market, they expanded into a number of other areas.

In 2012, SF were bought by Hamilton Bradshaw, and since then have grown rapidly, delivering year on year increases since 2013 to become the largest specialist recruiter in the Midlands.

Being a specialist is important to them as it enables the organisation to provide a more insightful and efficient service, matching candidates to the right culture and the right business goals.

To succeed at SF, you must have energy, ambition and a level of curiosity that stands you apart from your peers. They are unashamedly unconventional as a business and enjoy working with people who like to test the limits of what is possible to ensure that they can keep growing, learning and developing.

In return for the effort and commitment of employees, SF work hard to invest in developing both recruitment skills, and later, leadership skills. SF want employees to become well-rounded business people as well as exceptional recruiters.
