At Vanilla Recruitment we have a passion for helping people transform their lives and their businesses by delivering a unique recruitment service

This was true when we set up in 2005 and we still stand by this today. We are proud to be an independent recruitment agency. We work with you to help you achieve exactly what you want.

Our MD Eloise had been managing successful recruitment teams for many years when she realised that corporate recruitment had become less about the people and businesses involved, and more like a numbers game.

She was confident that there was a better way, so in 2005 she took the leap and created Vanilla Recruitment. Since then, Vanilla has grown organically year on year. From starting out offering only generalist office recruitment, to now having a unified team delivering unique recruitment solutions across 5 specialist disciplines: Sales, Marketing, Accountancy & Finance, HR, Office.

This page is about us, but our service is all about YOU!

“We pride ourselves on the quality of service we offer; developing strong relationships with candidates and clients. They too believe we are different to other recruitment firms.

Our people are at the centre of Vanilla’s values and it’s their passion to ‘get it right’ that gives us our unique recruitment service, our excellent customer retention rates, and our fantastic repeat business levels from clients and candidates.”

Eloise is always at the forefront of the business to ensure the values and ethics that were there when she started Vanilla, are still the motivating factor today. And testament to this, is that several of her very first clients are still recruiting with Vanilla today.

We are truly passionate about recruitment and the positive impact it can have on people’s lives and businesses.

Vanilla recruit predominantly across the East Midlands covering Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Rutland and the surrounding areas. Vanilla Recruitment Market Harborough is our HQ but some of our specialisms are UK wide, because of the niche business areas they work within.

The big picture – our mission, vision and values

The impact of your job on your life is huge. The majority of us spend more of our time at work than any other place. We also know how much time and money is invested in employees, and how a business is only as good as the people within it.

With this in mind, we sat down as a team and discussed our role as recruiters in great detail. What are the expectations and the unique wants and needs of the client, the business owner, the manager; or the candidate, the jobseeker and the person looking for work for a multitude of reasons absolutely unique to themselves.

Our mission, vision and values are the reason we do this and at the core of everything we do here at Vanilla. We want to work with people who share our values, so when you work with us these Vanilla values will form the basis of our hopefully long and successful partnership together.
