About Pertemps Recruitment Partnership

Warwickshire-based Pertemps are one of the UK's largest providers of temporary, permanent and contract recruitment solutions to the private and public sectors.

Tim Watts, the man who oversaw the rise of Pertemps from 1961, can still be found in his Meriden office every day, now in his role as Lifetime President. Managing Director these days is Carmen Watson.

The legacy of Tim’s mother lives on in the family values that still underpin the company’s culture. The Connie Watts Award is presented annually to the employee who lives and breathes Pertemps more than any other.

The Pertemps family consists of many individual companies, each specialising in niche recruitment solutions, such as driving, supply chain and logistics, managed solutions and even models.

Tim Watts leads by example. Over the years, he’s lent his Rolls-Royce to staff getting married, raised millions for charities and given unemployed jobseekers a free haircut, suit and tie.

Directors take 'roadshow' tours of the country at least once a year to meet with as many Pertemps employees in person as possible. The intranet and employee magazine go to every employee, and an employee engagement survey every year directly relates to the values and vision.
