Our Story

Richard’s story…

“ After more than a decade in IT recruitment, seeing the same old robotic engagement with clients & candidates, I had a vision, where I saw an agency where consultants would care and respect candidates and help those people achieve their career ambitions.

I saw an agency that formed relationships with its candidates and clients and worked hard to earn their trust, not necessarily for short term gain but with a long term partnership in mind. I envisioned an agency full of authenticity and personality where we had conversations not sales pitches.

I imagined growing a team of specialist recruiters who were passionate about working with the best talent enabling our clients to become even more successful. Xpertise was born with that vision and those values.”

Richard Harrison, founder and MD.

  • George’s Story: George was adamant he would never return to recruitment, but for the right agency with the right values, here he is!
  • Ailsa’s Story : “I thought that recruitment was about bottom lines and being chained to your desk: It’s really about people and that’s why I love it.”
