Finding temporary Staff:

We frequently speak to clients that have never used an agency before and they are totally unaware of how simple this whole process can be!

We recognise that speed is often of the essence when it comes to finding temporary staff. If you are in need of help, whether this be the odd day, a few weeks, on-going work, covering unexpected sickness, increases in workload or longer-term contracts to cover maternity leave then all you need to do is contact us. We operate a 24-hour telephone system so our consultants are available 7 days a week to help you with any staffing problems!

One of our consultants will take your booking, noting the job description in as much detail as possible, the hours, days required and the hourly pay rate; we will then search our extensive database to find you a suitable candidate with all the necessary skill and experience and call you back with the details.

All you have to do then is sign a timesheet for the appropriate candidate and our payroll team will take care of the rest for you! A weekly invoice is then sent to you – it really is that simple!

Permanent Staff:

Sapphire Recruitment can also assist you with finding high-quality permanent staff too!

Whatever you need, thanks to our ever-growing database and precise selection processes, we make it easy to find the best candidate for your job!

Before we begin searching for candidates, we take the time to get to know your company and its culture. We take a detailed job description, personal specification and salary details so we can begin searching our database for suitable applicants. We will also advertise your job on our website, our job boards, and in our window at no cost to you!

We evaluate and shortlist all the applicants and forward you the CVs we think are most suited to your needs. If you are interested in meeting with any of the candidates we will arrange all interviews and can liaise with successful/unsuccessful candidates on your behalf.

We will then discuss the agreed annual salary for the vacancy and calculate our charges as a percentage of that salary.

We operate a “No Placement, No fee” policy too.


As an independent recruitment agency we are able to be flexible with out pricing structures. This means we can tailor our prices to suit all budgets without compromising on the staff or level of service we provide.
