Looking to recruit capable staff in London? As experienced recruitment consultants, we can help! Forties People have been a London Recruitment Company since 1992.

  • We don’t just take a job description over the phone – our recruitment consultants meet you at your premises to understand exactly what you are looking for
  • We don’t waste your time by sending hundreds of CVs – we interview each candidate face-to-face and only send the CVs that really suit the role
9 Reasons Why it Makes Sense to Choose Forties People to Place Quality Employees with Your Organisation!
  1. Because this is a family business with many years experience in HR and Recruitment, This means we understand what the term ‘long term relationships’ means to the success of a business and we practice it every minute of every hour of every day!
  2. Because for sole supplier status we give a FREE REPLACEMENT* for the first 12 weeks, after we place a new employee with you. Why? Because 93% of the employees that we place stay for at least 12 months and some for 10 years or more!

  3. Because we provide a free vetting service for all permanent placements.

  4. Because we offer free testing to check the skills and competencies of candidates as requested by you.

  5. Because we are a family business we tend to find good, trustworthy people to fill your position. We use our experience to network for candidates which means we are more likely to find the most desirable employees for your organisation.

  6. Because we bank on our own good reputation with every new employee we place with our customers.

  7. Because we attract many mature and reliable candidates who are more likely to stay in a job for a lifetime.

  8. Because we are passionate campaigners for equal opportunities in the employment market – combating ageism in the workplace is the basis of our company ethos and success. And because our commitment to equal opportunities is well recognised within many employers and by the Government.

  9. Because we understand the terrible implications for a business when a few months down the line the new recruit is not suitable for the role. When this happens you need to go through the whole process all over again – which means we help you avoid a massive waste of good business resources.

If you share our ethos then it makes perfect sense to join up with us to find reliable and high quality employees
