About the employer

We work hard, play hard and have a friendly office atmosphere that many Candidates say they so rarely see with other UK employment agencies, proving that Genesis is not only a great company to be associated with, but a great place to work!

(You can find out a little more about some of the Genesis Team by reviewing our Company Profile/Brochure found on our website)

Why did we choose the name Genesis for the company name? Having spent over 20 years in the recruitment industry we thought it was time for change - a 'new beginning' in the way that recruitment agencies in the UK treated their employees and the service they provided to their clients.

We measure our success by the number of long-term and repeat clients who use us to fulfil their labour needs, the temporary workers who rely upon us to ensure they're being placed in a job that they'll love and the permanent placements we fill for old and new clients, at all levels in their organisation.

We are delighted to have been accepted as members of the REC and The ALP. We hold a Government GLA Gangmaster License proving that we adhere to all current Legislation and Code of Good Practice, ensuring that jobseekers and employers alike are treated equally and fairly, thus enjoying the highest service standards
