What Our Clients Say

I have used Douglas Charles recruitment for our professional needs.

They are an amazing agency and they take the time to actually listen and get to know the company and the ethos that they are recruiting for. This is what sets them apart from the rest.

Managing Director - Wakefield Pharmacy

Sharon and David at Douglas Charles listened and understood my dilemma when I had a problem. Only then did they look for suitable relevant opportunities for me.

Within two weeks I had two job offers. I would recommend Douglas Charles to anybody who is looking for new staff or a new job.
