Fishing in the Talent Pool? It’s time to get clever.

You have roles to fill. You need the best talent.

Yet discovering fresh candidates can often feel like fishing – throwing a line out to catch only disappointing tiddlers that are anything but a natural fit for your company.

We cast the net further – wider – we span seas and oceans, employing numerous tactics to uncover the best possible talent for your business.

We are an independent, family-established company – we provide you with a personal approach, tailored to your every whim and requirement.

We aren’t defined by hitting that next big target – our staff aren’t merely sales people who must keep an eye on some whiteboard filled with sale counters. Our success is defined by yours – and by the people we discover who go on to become a cornerstone of your company.

We are built to be better – to fill positions that run right up to director level appointments. We bring more than three decades of experience to the table – and we’ve built up quite the track record in the process.

We are exceptional at what we do.

But we’re also realistic. As a company with recruitment needs, you find yourself amongst a sea of potential agencies – each jostling for your attention with tall stories and fishy tails. Knowing who to trust can be tough.

So don’t just take our word for how good we are. Take the words of our many happy clients.

Hi Dale, May I take this opportunity to thank you and every one at the cleverfish agency for all the help you have given me over the last two years. If things do go wrong at my new job, then I will be only to happy to join you again. And I would like to wish you all the best for the future.


Dear Dale, Thank you for sending my P45. Thank you for all your help and I just want to say that The Clever Fish Recruitment has been the best agency I have ever worked with. Pay and payslips on time every week! Can’t fault you. Thanks again.


Hi Adam, thank you for all the work you’ve given me over the past few months. I really appreciate all you’ve done for me. Thanks to Clever Fish, I now have a permanent contract and can give my family the security they need. All the best.


Several factors led us to use the services of The Cleverfish Recruitment Services Ltd. The high standard of candidate and the complete understanding of our requirements. We found the assistance from Adam and the team to be of a very high standard.
