We are Orchard Jobs Recruitment

For over 30 years Orchard Jobs Recruitment have 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 over 22 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.

Orchard Jobs Recruitment 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.

Natasha Willcock – Recruiting (non-sales) property management staff in London, Herts, Beds, Bucks, Essex and Birmingham.

Orchard Jobs Recruitment 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.

WHY ORCHARD JOBS RECRUITMENT ARE DIFFERENT

Our 3:1 Success ratio
Our clients and candidates enjoy a 3:1 interview to hire success ratio. The national average is 10:1. We don’t waste anyone’s time.

In Depth Interviews +
Many recruitment firms simply ‘have a chat’ with applicants before submitting them to their clients. At Orchard, where ever possible, we either meet candidates face to face or we interview via Skype or Face Time. Additionally, we test IT and general office skills whilst carrying out psychometric assessments.

Temp or Perm Options
Not all our clients, or all our candidates want full time permanent work. We welcome applications from both job seekers and employers seeking to discuss the temporary option.

Candidates
Changing jobs is one of the most significant things you’ll ever do. You spend more time at work than you do at home. We really DO understand this and we are committed to helping YOU make the right decision.

HOW WE CAN HELP YOU

WHAT CANDIDATES & CLIENTS ARE SAYING

The more personable service offered definitely shows through in the quality and suitability of candidates offered. By coming to the office and meeting us, it gave a much better picture of the type of person we wanted, hence leaving us with 2 very good candidates.

Very pleased with the speed in which we have found someone, who we are very happy to offer the job to.

Becky Bone, AT Bone & Sons.
This is the second time we have been sent potential staff by Orchard, and it will be the second time we will have hired their first choice of candidate.

Profiling and vetting procedures are excellent.

Keith Barnfield, Barnfields Estate Agents
We have used the support of Orchard on a couple of occasions to successfully hire key Logistics Managers, and both times they have come up trumps!

Providing a friendly and professional service whilst submitting relevant candidates. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Orchard Recruitment to other businesses.

Rob Knee, Macfarlane Packaging
On this particular occasion, we did not have a lot of time to fill the vacancy.

Kelly quickly found us a candidate who we felt (after an interview) would be a good fit in our team.

We feel that we have benefitted greatly by having one point of contact at Orchard, who has taken the time to get to know a bit about us, our key managers and their expectations, and our corporate culture, which helps to ensure that the right type of candidates are referred to us.

Thank you, Kelly!

Maunder Taylor, General Manager
When we need to add to our team, Orchard Recruitment are our only point of contact. We simply do not need to browse our contacts databases for the many recruiters we have met along the way of building and growing a business.

Time is vital to us and at Orchard our recruitment needs are heard carefully and in detail, then only a few handpicked CVs are presented to us for review, within hours.

Skills and experience are very important but personality, work ethics and general attitude are just as important too, and at Orchard I feel the candidates presented to us are not simply matched to our needs on grounds of skills, I feel they are carefully selected to make sure they will fit in with the team too.

I cannot recommend Orchard Recruitment highly enough.
