Recruitment Services

Covering temporary and permanent appointments, the team at First Personnel works closely with businesses to offer bespoke staffing solutions. From one off requests for temporary staff, to total staffing solutions and permanent roles, as well as a complete managed service for those employers wanting a total recruitment solution which can include recruiting, training, inducting and supervising staff.

Corporate and social responsibility

As a business, we take our commitment to corporate and social responsibility extremely seriously.

We support the communities we work in and each year we aim to give a little back through fundraising and supporting local charity events. Since First Personnel was established in 1979, the business and our employees have donated over £2 million to local good causes to make a real difference in our communities.

Strengthening our business
through our people

We continually invest in our staff and within the organisation there is positive team ethos.

Everyone is treated as an individual and we respect their time and their contributions, successes are celebrated and staff are recognised and rewarded for their hard work.

The strength and success of our business is down to our people and each individual is valued and given the opportunity to develop within the business.


Our customers can also be assured of the high quality standards that we adhere to.

The quality of our service was recognised when we attained the ISO 9001:2015 standard for our quality management system. ISO 9001:2015 is the gold standard for quality and demonstrates that we are consistent and deliver a high standard service at all times.

We are Stronger Together Partners which demonstrates the group’s commitment to tackling modern slavery and exploitation in supply chains.
