Your employees make your business. It’s our job to bring you the best.

Red Anchor is one of the most professional agencies we have used to support the recruitment for our London office. We have found an agency that are able to supply us with highly skilled EA’s and have the right personality fit to support our Executives along with the right skill level and experience. Red Anchor get our briefs instantly and have always supplied us with very impressive short lists, sometimes at very short notice. I would highly recommend using them.

Office Manager/HR – Executive Search


We think that top class permanent recruitment means a complete understanding of your business, backed up by rock-solid processes.


Finding you your perfect match.

We will work with you to establish a brief, based not just on your role specification, but also the dynamics of your business, your ambitions for the role moving forward, and your company culture. We will help you to establish skillsets and educational requirements and we can always offer up-to-the-minute market insight too.

Your Account Director will be with you every step of the way, to take the hassle out of the recruitment process:

  • We will have met all candidates first for an in-depth interview
  • You will receive CVs to your desired timeline, with a curated shortlist of up to five candidates
  • We will manage all the admin and scheduling of interviews
  • And after the interviews, we will handle the feedback process, too

Dear Red Anchor Team – this is a ‘thank you’ note to say that we are absolutely delighted with the excellent job Red Anchor Recruitment did on finding us the perfect candidate for the German speaking EA role we recently had on offer.  The candidate character profile was absolutely spot-on, as indeed was the CV and background, the required qualifications and skills.  Several months down the line, we are very pleased to report that the candidate is doing an excellent job and is who she portrayed herself to be throughout the interview process and she has integrated well in to the team.  Well done!

Too many recruitment companies see temps as a commodity. Just fillers of gaps.

Not us. We know that temps deal with time-critical business challenges. Our clients want their temps to settle in seamlessly, roll up their sleeves and hit the ground running.

We are very proud of our Temporary Team at Red Anchor: they will treat your temp requirements with the same diligence and integrity as we devote to permanent placements.

Many of our dedicated support temps have worked with us for several years. 


Our temporary candidates have each been hand-picked for their ability to bring resourcefulness and quality of service to every placement.

We have temporary candidates on placements in large
corporations and small businesses alike. No job is too big or too small, so try us out, even if this is a last-minute requirement.

Join our temps team


Red Anchor are delightful and always find me work. I work abroad a lot and when I come home they manage to fill my time with temporary work so that I don't have periods of unemployment between contracts overseas. I have been working through Red Anchor ever since I moved to London and I never need to use anyone else to find temp work. They always make sure I feel comfortable in my role and keep in touch with me regularly.

Milly, Red Anchor Temp.


It is a common fallacy that recruitment consultants focus exclusively on their clients.

Some do; but smart recruitment professionals know that it pays to invest in their candidates, too.

And the smartest take the long view: that supporting you in the development of your career will see you return to us in the future, as a candidate and even as a client (which makes us very proud indeed).


Support, whenever
its needed

Just as with our clients, our candidates receive a dedicated Account Manager from the start. Part expert, part mentor, your Account Manager will:

  • Get to know your skills and ambitions, in order to offer you professional guidance in your job search
  • Fully brief you on each opportunity, giving you the facts to make an informed decision on each position and ensuring you only attend interviews which are worth while
  • Offer additional preparation, e.g. mock interviews, if desired
  • Handle all liaison with the employer for you, including HR and contractual support
  • Give you all employer feedback, and pass your feedback on in return

We also offer a complete career coaching programme to help our talent make satisfying, long-term career decisions in today’s ever-changing market.

In short, we will present you with the right opportunities, and
represent you honestly to employers.

Red Anchor Account Managers commit to constant ongoing training, so you can be certain of best-practice support from a professional team, dedicated to supporting your career.

If we sound like the sort of people you could work with, do get in touch. All we ask is that you make some appropriate preparations for your interview with us.

The following checklist may be useful:

  • An up to date CV
  • Certificates for appropriate qualifications and courses
  • Details of referees whom we can immediately approach for verification
  • Any required proof of residence or right to work in the UK (for non-UK nationals)

Red Anchor recruited me for my current role as PA to the MD of an accountancy firm in the City.  From our first meeting, I knew that my consultant was the best to find me my ideal job; because they really listened to what I wanted, rather than just sending me on pointless interviews.  They were great at coaching me prior to my interview and amazingly supportive which helped calm my nerves and sent me off for the interview on the right foot. The whole process of meeting Red Anchor and getting my new role took under a week which is practically unheard of; and it proves that they know how to put the right candidate forward for their perfect role.
