When you get in touch with us, we will work in an open and honest way with you, and that’s all we expect in return. Together we will establish exactly what you can give to a role and what you need from that role. It’s this simple yet successful partnership that delivers such great results.


We will always

Represent you in the best possible way    Comply with data protection, race, gender and disability discrimination rules

 Remain approachable and fully engaged    Have your best interests at heart

 Work in partnership with you    Provide open and honest feedback

We will never

 Send your CV to a client unless we have your permission

 Contact you about roles that do not fit your criteria

 Send you to an interview without a full pre-brief

The impact that your job has on your life is huge, with the majority of us spending longer at work than anywhere else it's no surprise. Therefore, the decision about where and how you work and perhaps more importantly what you do, shapes so much more than just your hours between 9AM-5PM.

In every conversation we have with anyone looking to make a job change, our role can be very different depending on what you need from us. Some conversations are about us giving guidance, some are about offering support, some are for reassurance, and some are just about confirmation - we understand that every person who contacts us is an individual and has their own unique story, history, skills, ambitions and goals.

We will always aim to meet with you in person at the start of our journey together. This can be at Vanilla HQ in Market Harborough or by meeting up somewhere in the middle. If it makes more sense we may even set up a Skype call instead. The aim in all of this is for us to really get to know you; not just learn about your work history and skills set, but about your motivations, ambitions and personality too.

Upload your CV and we’ll take the time to read it through and get back to you. If we think we can be of help, we’ll arrange with you to meet up so we can get to know you and understand what you’re looking for. If we don’t feel we can help you, we’ll be honest about it. It might be that we don’t recruit for the type of role you’re looking for, or that we can't help at this moment in time. - we'll let you know and manage your expectations.

Our service goes beyond just matching you with a job role. From getting to know you and what you’re looking for, we will also support you through the entire recruitment process.
