If you’re looking to recruit in the digital space then you’ve come to the right place. Established in 2009, with over 40 years’ combined industry experience, we really know what we’re doing – and it’s how we do it that makes us different from other agencies.
We like to think of ourselves as your partner – and we take a genuine interest in your success. We aren’t sales people, we won’t hassle or pressure you, and we’ll always do right by you. Sometimes that means we go above and beyond to do what’s best for you, and that’s why we enjoy long-lasting relationships with our clients.
So whether you’re a small business, a multi-national enterprise in the North East of England or further afield, looking for permanent, contract or temporary employees, we’ll find the right people for your business.
Here at Sharpe Recruitment, we make it our business to know yours – we’ll start by taking the time to really understand your business and what you need from your next recruit before beginning our search.
Finding the best person for the job isn’t easy business – but we’ll do all the heavy lifting for you. Once we understand your needs:
We’re based in the North East but, being specialists in digital recruitment, it’s not unusual for us to be searching for talent and placing candidates in Edinburgh, Manchester, Cardiff, Leeds and even home-based roles!
So if you’re searching candidates outside of the North East, get in touch - we will help you.
For permanent placements we charge 17% of the candidates’ first year salary, which is negotiable if you would like to work with us exclusively. We also offer a "Free Replacement Guarantee" which we will discuss with you when you register your first vacancy.
For contract and temporary placements, please get in touch to discuss your needs.
Laura brings bags of passion, smarts & integrity. It's been a pleasure working with her and getting to know her as an individual. She's a great asset to her profession.
Laura has been a valuable asset over the years in helping me find a career in the digital industry. Making the whole process simple yet very rewarding and at the same time giving great communication at every step of the way. Highly recommended!
The DevOps North East (D.O.N.E.) meetup group is for people in and around the North East of England who are interested in DevOps, the emerging movement that advocates collaboration across developers, operations, security and the business to ensure a stable and consistent flow of work from â€śidea" to â€śproductionâ€ť whilst simultaneously increasing the reliability, resilience and security of â€śproductionâ€ť environments. Sharpe Recruitment have been instrumental in supporting us, providing sponsorship that covers the costs of the Meetup.com website. In return Sharpe have their eyes and ears in one of the North Eastâ€™s most dynamic and in-demand skills enhancement meetup groups.
Sharpe are highly professional and approachable recruiters who takes the time to get to know their clients... astutely providing what they need without the sales pitch. I've always been confident of being in the hands of a well-informed and enthusiastic person who cares about my ambitions and direction.
Contacted a number of recruiters on being made redundant - Laura and Sharpe Recruitment was/were by far the best - extremely helpful, very thorough, professional and committed...would highly recommend without hesitation. :o)
Julie spent time to get to know me so that she could best help. She is passionate about helping others and provided me with the focus and direction I needed. I would definitely use Julie's services again.
Itâ€™s good to work with someone in Recruitment I know I can trust and who is reliable. Sharpe Recruitment are very professional and really listens to the recruitment needs I have, rather than being desperate to â€śmake a saleâ€ť and firing irrelevant CVâ€™s through to me. As a result we have filled several positions very successfully thanks to their commitment.
When I was looking to get away from my last job, Laura quickly found several openings which were a good match for me, gave a good insight into each company and provided valuable advice for the interviews.
After many extremely difficult and disappointing relationships with recruiters in the past, Laura was a breath of fresh air. She clearly understands the needs of a busy employer, and recognises that it's quality over quantity that counts when looking to fill specialised creative and technical roles within the digital sector. Every introduction Laura made was extremely targeted to our very specific requirements. All in all, excellent value for money!
When it came for us to find a recruitment company we found Sharpe had great empathy and enthusiasm. Laura was very good at understanding our specific needs when delivering the right candidate. Sometimes with recruitment there is no magic wand and Laura always ensured she delivered the right candidates to suit our needs, quality over quantity.
Laura and her company are very professional and friendly when helping you look for a new job. They also listen to make sure the job is a perfect fit for you. I would recommend Laura to anyone who is looking for a new role.
Julie is a pleasure to work with, not only is she knowledgeable and well connected within the creative sector, but has a unique respect and professionalism to both candidate and client that is a rare trait in the recruitment industry. Highly recommend her services.
Julie has been an absolute pleasure to deal with, the most professional and thoughtful recruitment agency I have dealt with yet. She gave a great brief of job spec, information and very good interview aid, which I'm sure helped me secure my new position. I would highly recommend Julie and Sharpe recruitment to both Employers and Employees.
Id like to recommend Julie as a recruiter. Julies ability to think outside of the traditional "recruitment box" is a welcome change. Thorough professionalism and the ability to introduce quality contacts make Julie an obvious choice.
