About The Recruiting Office

Adela and I began The Recruiting Office to bring open, honest, knowledgeable and ethical recruitment to Norfolk’s logistics and manufacturing companies.

We also wanted to bring to the sector the traditional head-hunting skills that had previously been reserved for executive level recruitment. We want to connect with those hard to find candidates that other recruiters and direct recruitment campaigns fail to reach.

Since opening, we have established a growing reputation of finding the perfect candidates for a broad range of temporary and permanent roles. We have successfully recruited for an incredibly diverse range of roles from warehouse picker packers to commercial directors and from HGV drivers to transport managers.

In an increasingly candidate short market we have found that our ability to pro-actively connect with passive candidates is increasingly important in filling the vacancies we receive.

If you are looking for advice or support for a vacancy you are looking to fill, we would be delighted to have a no-obligation meeting or conversation with you.

We can offer advice and support on a range of topics.

Neil Scarborough, Managing Director


We’re proud to have been selected as a member of the Future50 for 2021.

Future50 is an exciting programme designed to recognise Norfolk and Suffolk’s most innovative companies. Those chosen are the region’s ‘ones to watch’ – businesses which create jobs, grow faster and have the drive and ambition to be leaders in their sector.

What makes The Recruiting Office different?

At The Recruiting Office, we specialise in finding quality staff that last for Norfolk’s warehousing, logistics, manufacturing and food production businesses. With over 43 years’ combined experience we do things a little differently:


We'll work with you to understand exactly who your perfect candidate is


You're busy, so we'll interview every candidate by telephone & face-to-face before they even reach you


We not only match the candidate to your business but your business to the candidate


We can help you interview and ask the difficult questions for you
