The people you employ define who you are and shape the future of your organisation.

We add value by making your recruitment easier, faster and more successful.


For over 70 years we have pioneered an approach based on partnership, professionalism and personal touch.
​​It is on these three pillars that we have built the enduring, mutually rewarding client relationships that characterise Gordon Yates.
It is no accident that over 90% of our business comes from repeat customers. We aren't here to simply fill your next vacancy; we are here to work with you to nurture and develop your organisation's most important asset: its people.
Exceptional service requires exceptional understanding. That is why we invest in really getting to know your organisation, your people and your goals. Once we have immersed ourselves in your world, our consultants utilise their deep market insight and recruitment expertise to find you candidates that resonate with your culture and vision.
After you have identified the perfect fit, we will be there to support both you and the candidate to ensure a smooth transition.
As your partner, we are with you every step of the way.

NB: We collect a minimum of 2 references for every temporary candidate we send, and enhanced DBS certificates as required.


Hourly rates vary according to the skill and experience level you require. Our close links to an ever–changing market ensure high performance as well as great value.
Rates are discussed and agreed prior to each assignment. At senior levels a daily rate may apply rather than an hourly charge.
