We’re a specialist HR recruitment agency in Derby

Ay up me duck!

We’ve been around as a company since 2011, with our founders having been based in Derby for over 20 years. We’ve seen the amazing changes that the city has undergone since then, and are proud to be part of its future. Most of our clients are located in Derby and the surrounding East Midlands area, and many of them are only a stone’s throw away from us.

We recruit HR staff for Derby businesses

Wish you were here? Not just a pretty stock image, this is our actual office at Darley Abbey Mills, Derby.

And we’re genuinely local. With a real office. Not a ‘virtual office’. Not a distant call-centre in some far-away place. We’re not just a website, a collection of document templates, or an anonymous voice on the phone. We’re actual people who want to meet you face-to-face, so we can properly get to know you and your business. We pride ourselves on the high level of personal service we deliver to our clients. Unlike many other recruitment agencies, we’re about quality rather than quantity.

Our office is conveniently located at the Darley Abbey Mills World Heritage Site, not far from Derby city centre, which means we’re readily available to support those HR recruitment issues that can only be dealt with in person. And since we have our own meeting rooms at our office, it means we can have sensitive discussions relating to your resourcing needs away from your normal place of work.

So, if you’re looking for help with Derby HR recruitment, you’re welcome to just pop in when you’re passing. Or we’re equally happy to come over to your place. We’ve also got a top-notch IT setup, so alternatively can handle everything virtually if that’s your thing. Whatever is best for you.

STOP PRESS NEWS: Apparently you’re soon going to be able to get a boat cruise up the River Derwent from Derby city centre directly to our offices! How great is that!?

We’re Derby’s leading specialist HR recruiter

We’re proud of what we’ve achieved over the past 10 years, and in particular, the reputation we’ve established within the local business community.

Which means that not only can we offer you the capability of a business partner that really knows its stuff, but also the stability of a well-established company, and the credibility of one with an extensive history of local clients. You can have total confidence in choosing to work with us.

If you’re a Derby business looking to recruit HR staff, the chances are you already know someone that we’ve worked with.

So, go on, just ask them what we’re like!

Other agencies attempted to compete on this hire but they missed the mark

We were extremely pleased working with Loates HR Recruitment. They are responsive and thorough so we felt confident that they understood our requirements and provided us with a stellar candidate. Other agencies attempted to compete on this hire but they missed the mark.

Finding the person and not a person

Thank you. The recruitment process that we went through worked really well, especially linking our values to finding the person and not a person. This really helped us with an important role that we have spent many years trying to recruit the right individual. Look forward to the next find!

Need HR recruitment but not a Derby business?

No problem! As much as we love carrying out HR recruitment in Derby, we also help businesses across the East Midlands and beyond. Indeed, we currently have clients based in Cardiff, and have previously worked as far afield as Cairo, Egypt!

East Midlands to Middle East, I'm sure there's a marketing slogan in there somewhere.

We can help you!
