How are Breedon Consulting different to a recruitment agency? 

Our recruitment service was born out of client frustrations with typical agency offerings. The mentality of agencies is often to just fill the gap before someone else does, rather than find candidates who are actually suited to the culture and values of a company. This is amongst a sea of fees which increase with salary levels, and we knew we could do better for our clients. 

Our solution to this was to develop a recruitment model which complements our HR service whilst providing a hassle free, fixed fee service. 

Our service includes:

Manage the entire hiring process

From developing the job specification to finding the right people, we will manage the whole process! We’re not just here to tick boxes and pass on CVs. We will take the time to ensure that each candidate is suited to the role and your company’s values. 


We will carry out initial sifting and shortlisting to provide a small number of suitable candidates for you. If you want a good fit for your business, this process is needed to sift through a pool of candidates to find the best! We can ask any questions you want, set tasks and conduct the call backs. We can make all of the necessary arrangements for the candidates to come and see you for the final stage interviews.

Active sourcing & market mapping

In a very tight and fast moving recruitment market you’re unlikely to attract the best candidates via an advert. We will actively source and head hunt passive candidates so we can find the very best people for you including those who aren’t actively looking.

This may include market mapping, where we will use competitive intelligence to identify who to approach about your role and how to encourage them to join you. This can make all the difference and give you a really good result.

Interview Support 

The final interview stages can be daunting, not only for the interviewee, but for the interviewer too. We can assist in the final stage interview, to help you make a decision, take the lead if needs be, or just be there to give you an objective second opinion. It’s not a process that you need to go through on your own, having assistance can help speed things along. 

The Offer 

When you have made your decision on which candidate you would like to take on, then we can negotiate the offer and draw up contractual documentation, making sure that all the necessary arrangements are in place. 


Did you know that new hires that undergo a structured on-boarding process are 58% more likely to be with the company after three years? 

The onboarding of a new employee is just as important as the recruitment process, we are there every step of the way. We can prepare an onboarding plan for your new recruits whilst also keeping an eye on them to ensure they feel supported in their new role. 

Here at Breedon Consulting we offer a fixed fee service, which doesn’t increase with salary and which can typically save you 50% by going against the traditional methods – why not give us a try?

  • After having worked with many HR consultants previously during my time as Director of several businesses, I have found working with Breedon to be extremely refreshing.  They have immense understanding of HR regulations, both past and present, including current case precedents, and have an ability to work with individual businesses to translate the jargon, find effective solutions and provide second to none support.  I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Breedon’s services to anyone, whether that be a small sole trader or a large organisation.  Breedon have “scaled up” with us as we have grown and this has helped us enormously – Director, Cirena Group
