Time is precious, especially when you’re searching for the best candidates to support and grow your business.
At Simpson Dean Recruitment, we understand the need to balance staff hiring efficiency with finding you the right high-quality people for your company, and we pride ourselves on our track record of delivering the best results for our clients.
Whether you’re searching for an experienced chartered accountant, or looking for warehouse recruitment, our team has experience in a wide range of sectors and industries to help you find the right employees.
We’re also a recruitment and labour agency that cares about social responsibility and providing a quality service to candidates. When you work with us, you can rest easy knowing that you’re working with a partner whose passion for helping the right people succeed in the right roles will bring that same energy to your next hire too – attracting more highly engaged candidates to deliver your business’ future plans with enthusiasm.
We are a manufacturing facility based near Ashford, Kent which has been trading for 18 years. Until 2021 we had always dealt with recruitment in house and had been fortunate to find candidates who are now long serving members of staff.
Recruitment in 2021 proved to be more difficult and following some unsuccessful placements we made the decision to try a recruitment agency.
Simpson Dean visited the site to get an understanding about our business and employment requirements. They were not only helpful in explaining the current market but offered the unique service of interviewing potential candidates before submitting their details to us. Along with their C.V. a short explanation is sent about each candidate. This is extremely helpful in deciding which candidates to interview. Simpson Dean carried out registration and background checks before arranging the face to face interviews.
Our success rate for finding suitable employees has improved dramatically. We now use Simpson Dean as our recruitment agency of choice for Permanent staff and will approach them for Temporary staff should the need arise.

Virtual Interview Services
We can provide the opportunity of having an experienced recruitment partner run the first stage of your interview process, and free up your time to concentrate on the things that matter to you the most.
As part of our services, we can pre-screen your candidates for you with our virtual interview services, and give you that time back from your work day that you’d otherwise spend sourcing candidates, arranging interviews, and filling out feedback forms.
How it works
We record a video with each of your candidates, and then send you a folder with the videos and CV’s together, direct to your inbox for you to review your options at the time that works best for you and your business.
You have the option of either a profile video, or a full zoom interview, to make sure you get everything you need to make the right choice:
Candidate profile videos
These short introductions are filmed for every potential candidate, to let you get a feel for who they are and their values before you choose who to take forward to a full interview.
Full Zoom interviews with your questions
Perhaps you need more than a quick candidate profile, or there are specific questions you’d like us to ask all your potential candidates to pre-interview them on your behalf. Send us your initial interview questions (and get our advice on great questions for us, or you, to ask your candidates!) and let us do the work of arranging and recording every great candidate so that you can review them in your own time before choosing your top responders to interview personally.
Getting the best out of your new, and current, employees with our Team Fit service
Operating an effective business goes beyond hiring good people – you need to know they’ll work well with both you and your team’s skills and working style. With Team Fit, we can help you build a brilliant team and give them the knowledge and skills to communicate and work together seamlessly to produce great results.
- For new candidates – using Team Fit, we can help make sure your potential candidates fit well with your existing team, giving you the reassurance that they’ll blend in easily with your best people from the start.
- For existing teams – knowledge is power, and knowing the strengths of your existing team members is essential to knowing where you need to grow. Book a Team Fit consultation to identify communication and working styles and audit the existing skills you have available in your team right now, so that you can pinpoint what talents you need your ideal candidates to bring to the table.

Free redundancy support plan
Making the right decisions for your business isn’t always about bringing in new faces. At Simpson Dean, we understand the need to balance difficult decisions with the need to protect your staff and fulfil your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to your employees. This is why we launched the completely free Redundancy Support Plan.
Through the plan, we’ve successfully delivered sensitive and practical redundancy support to a number of employers by helping employees feel less overwhelmed, and more in control of their next career step. From sharing our industry insider knowledge, to helping them audit their skills and write a great CV, we’re there to provide you with peace of mind by supporting your employees to feel positive about their employment future. Take a look at our dedicated support plan page for more information, and get in touch when you’re ready for us.
