We work with major businesses across the UK, recruiting all levels of leadership and management roles, introducing new talent with the ability to drive the business forward.
240 YEARS BETWEEN US...
But we've still got all our own teeth!
We never planned to be the biggest. Never coveted the awards. Weren’t plotting world domination. We were just an enthusiastic bunch with a simple mission: to be the best recruiters around.
The team Kate McCarthy put together 14 years ago has earned a reputation for a can-do attitude that gets the job done – and done well! We may have years of industry experience between us, fantastic facilities and a list of clients that would make you choke on your own biscuit but we still have our same simple values... putting clients first.
HOW IT ALL STARTED...
Having started out in Retail and then moving on to Retail recruitment, Kate recognised the need - and opportunity - for a high-quality Management and Leadership Recruitment Agency, with the focus on delivery and knowledge of the talent market across all sectors.
Delivering excellent results. Delivering exceptional service. And delivering extremely good value for money.
Opening in Manchester and London in early 2005 with a small, handpicked team that was passionate about Client Service, McCarthy quickly earned a reputation for a can-do mentality that gets the job done - and done well.
And this brought success - success that has seen the team grow; the company purchase a new Head Office in Birchwood, Warrington and firmly established themselves as a preferred Consultancy of many major UK Businesses.
The goal is not global domination. The plan isn’t to be the biggest; just the best recruitment business with a reputation for adding value and working in partnership. So McCarthy Recruitment will continue as it started and simply live out its values. Fiercely. And relish the independence that enables the team to put the focus exactly where it should be... on you.
