Our Story

Successfully recruiting for over 60 years, the Sammons Recruitment Group has developed through customer-driven, organic growth combined with
forward-thinking and adopting technology.

Established in 1957, Sammons was later acquired by father and daughter team, Martyn and Harriet Smith in 2019, with the purpose of creating, from this platform, a recruitment group through both organic growth and a buy and build strategy having now successfully acquired Brightred Resourcing Ltd and On Track Recruitment Ltd and integrated these, under the Sammons brand, post-acquisition.

Clients and candidates work with us because they know that our consultants offer unmatched expertise, integrity, first-hand knowledge of specialist fields and, above all, discretion.

The Group actively works to ensure a distinct and inclusive culture, bringing motivated and skilled people together to develop collectively for the future.

Correspondingly, Sammons puts considerable emphasis on its staffing development along with having a strong emphasis on creating internal promotion opportunities. Individual team members are fully supported to achieve relevant industry and professional qualifications, with a number of staff currently undertaking both Recruitment & Training Confederation (REC) and accountancy body qualifications.

Since acquiring Sammons, shareholders Harriet and Martyn Smith have made significant workforce investment, moving two of the current three offices into more modern, energy-efficient locations and completely refurbishing the third, while ensuring teams also benefit from improved ergonomics through better desks, seating and lighting.

The Group fully recognises that climate change is a critical business issue. While the recruitment industry does not pose any particular environmental risks, Sammons is highly mindful to manage effectively its energy consumption. Most of the Sammons offices are located conveniently for town centres and train stations, offering easy accessibility via foot or public transport for clients, candidates and staff. Martyn Smith, the Chairman of Sammons belongs to https://chapterzero.org.uk/, which usefully provides access to its knowledge hub helping Sammons deal with the issue.
