Our Clients

Why vanilla




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 both clients and candidates.

We invest our time getting to know you, your business, your goals, your environment and culture. This means we can find people we believe are a true match for you. And although we are a growing business, 71% of our team have been with us for over 3 years (57% over 6 years), meaning you won’t need to start from scratch briefing us about your business each time you recruit with us.  

We are proud to be an independent recruitment agency because it gives us the flexibility to form a true partnership with you. Across our 5 niche recruitment specialisms, our unified team are committed to getting you the results you need. 

So, if you are looking for great talent across any of our specialisms, within the East Midlands, or the whole of the UK for engineering or accountancy & finance, get in touch with us on 01858 898058 or email to discuss you recruitment needs.

Taking on a new team member is a big deal. In a lot of cases your business is only as good as the people you employ. With this in mind, you have the Vanilla Guarantee to safeguard you with finding the right people for your business.

If you employ one of our candidates and during their first 3 months you don’t think they’re right for your business, or they leave because the role wasn’t right for them, we have a rebate system in place to provide you with a financial safety net (subject to our terms of business).

Our service goes beyond just matching candidates to your job roles. From getting to know your business and what you’re looking for, we will also support you through the entire recruitment process. We can assist in creating your job adverts and helping you with interview questions, whilst managing all the details of the recruitment journey – we’ll be there for you every step of the way.
