"Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life."

This statement is what inspired me to set up The Career Agent.


It is oversimplified of course; it's difficult to be fully engaged and happy in your job every single day, however we believe everybody deserves to find a job and career that brings fulfilment.


We are a recruitment and career coaching business, setup to improve the job market, one job and one candidate at a time.


Our mission two fold;


1. To help employers to hire candidates who REALLY want to be there, and thus they deliver excellent results.


2. To help candidates to play to their strengths, and find an environment that appeals to their values and interests.


Personally it took me eight years in employment to find my career calling.


The emotional effect of unleashing your strengths, and appealing to your values will dramatically improve your life.


This has a positive knock on effect on those around you; your family, friends and colleagues.


So let's get to it.


Employers, find out how we can help you grow your business with the right people.


Candidates, find out how much better your life could be.

“Success is a science; if you have the conditions, you get the result.” - Oscar Wilde


Working to grow start-ups, scale-ups and SMEs is my passion.


There’s nothing better than putting the right people into roles that motivate them and watching a business grow from 2 employees to 50.


The Career Agent is the second small business that I’ve worked in and I love helping Rory to build recruiting and coaching functions that make a difference to employers and candidates in the UK and around the world.


Finding the career that makes you tick doesn’t have to be rocket science and we’re here to match fast-growing scale-ups with high quality candidates who want to contribute and progress.
