For 29 years we’ve been working with exceptional candidates and outstanding companies. Our ambition is simple: to recommend people that we’d employ ourselves to organisations we’d recommend our close friends or family to.
Graham Martin and Karen Leggett have worked together for 21 years and together have placed over 4000 people in permanent work and tens of thousands in temporary work. Additionally we have gone out of our way to recruit exceptional recruiters and researchers to work with us at our offices in the heart of Enfield Town
We only have a limited number of hours each day so we choose very carefully which candidates to represent and which clients to work with. Fussy? Very…
We cover the following disciplines in North & Greater London, Herts & Essex although we do have clients as far afield as Dorset and Edinburgh!
Graham Martin - Managing Director, covering accounting, finance, IT and management
Karen Leggett – Director, covering clerical and customer service in Watford, Herts & surrounding areas
Kelly Finley - Legal Recruiter, covering solicitors, legal secretaries, paralegals and receptionists.
Karla Cretten – In house Resourcer, resourcing exceptional candidates for specific job roles
Caroline Freeman - Recruiter and HR consultant, covering Watford
Our clients hire 1 in every 3 candidates we submit to them.
Similarly, we know that clients don’t want to waste their or the candidates’ time. We’d rather send one or two exceptional people for interview than ‘padding’ out the numbers with average candidates.

Over ten years of recruitment experience in boutique and high street agencies. I enjoy building up relationships with people and have found this has made me successful. First worked for orchard in 2004 for a few years, and I am now back!
Caroline specialises in Change Management and HR Recruitment, although has recruited in a variety of roles from board level to administration. Building long lasting relationships and solutions, understanding your business needs and culture fit is paramount to providing the right candidate for the right role.
I have been at Orchard since March 2016. Initially, I’m the girl who sources the great candidates for jobs, but I am also head of Marketing and enjoy implementing the campaigns we run at Orchard.
