About Us

A First Class Service

Riverside Recruitment was founded in 2007 after successfully establishing a strong presence within the recruitment industry for 3 years preceding.  We slowly built up the business and have seen it grow and thrive.

Our business is based on providing a service that is second to none. Our values are being open and honest, only providing the best possible candidates and ensuring we have regular communication with both clients and staff. By having a close working relationship with both parties ensures we can respond proactively.

No matter what size of business our client has, we provide the same first class service.

Finally we pride ourselves on not being pushy. We know that we are good at what we do and allow our service to do the talking for us.

Faye Francis

Managing Director 9-5

Faye, alongside Ian, formed the business in 2007 and now spends the majority of her time overseeing the business and compliance whilst still being heavily involved in the day-to-day activities of recruitment. She’s a bit of a stickler for everything having to be spot on.

Before Riverside Faye worked in manufacturing and HR before getting involved in Recruitment in 2004.
