Artisan Recruitment (UK) Ltd was established in 2011 by Lyn Packham and David Packham, both experienced recruitment professionals. Our reputation has evolved since then as we have continued to provide prestigious companies and organisations with the very best employees for permanent, temporary and contract vacancies. In 2012 the team was expanded when Harry Palmer joined and subsequently Mark and Julia McDavid brought a wealth of experience in various fields in 2014 taking over as Managing Directors. In 2016 the business was taken over by Vanessa Chick, Managing Director.
Our expertise and professional ability to match candidates with vacancies has built a tremendous degree of client trust. It gives us a real edge in discovering the hidden gems as well as the competent knowledge and information professionals. We achieve this without sending a deluge of unwanted CVs or ill-matched applicants. We offer integrity and professionalism and keep clients and candidates fully informed throughout all stages of an assignment. The reason you chose a recruitment agency is to reduce your workload not increase it. At Artisan we fully understand this concept.
We pride ourselves on our ability to retain business through listening to clients needs and willingness to learn.
Most of our new commissions arrive in the form of referrals from current or previous clients. This speaks volumes about our sector expertise and experience, and of course our clients’ continued confidence in our abilities.
Where possible we like to make company visits to better evaluate client requirements and such trips offer invaluable insights into a company’s culture and objectives.
