Welcome To Peaky Finders

“Peaky Finders began life through the need for a new era of recruitment consultancy. We are passionate about recruitment and the making the best possible match between company and candidate, and equally candidate and company. This done through a range of methods, the most important being a genuine consultancy for our clients and candidates.

The CV scattergun approach no longer works for Recruiters, and it is not the way that we like to do business. Like all Recruiters, we use similar systems to other agencies, but we take the time to fully understand the business, the needs and the candidate personally to really match you with your long-term solution.

The terms “Consultant” and “Consultancy” can be thrown around in modern times, but if you have a question about the current job market or require advice on a department restructure, then we will support you, by using our expertise in the recruitment sector and we will advise where you may be struggling or if you are doing something better than your competitors.”

   – Ashley Unsworth, Recruitment Director & Founder
