We’re extremely proud of our company ethos. Here’s our story.
This is our vision
To be the agency of choice in education and social work recruitment, recognised and respected for our outstanding service, by clients and candidates alike.
And this is how we deliver it
Our business is driven by collective growth rather than profit. We build people - our employees and candidates - and those people build our business. We don’t have shareholders, so our responsibility is 100% focused on our staff, our customers and on the children and families who ultimately benefit from our service.
An interview with our Directors - Paul Bromwich and Peter Archard
What were your reasons for starting Tempest Resourcing?
“We have over 25 years of recruitment experience combined and we’ve seen the ‘good’ and the ‘bad’, first hand. Having spent time providing consultancy advice to a range of underperforming recruitment companies we realised that impacting other peoples businesses was far less rewarding than actually changing the status quo. So we joined forces to provide a service that genuinely ‘does it better’.
We believe that clients and candidates in Education and Social Work deserve the very best experience and service, provided by an organisation that delivers with integrity and knows its sector inside out. Tempest Resourcing was founded on those principles.”
What’s your proudest achievement to date?
“Retention and development of our employees is without a doubt our best achievement; we have organically developed two associate directors and 5 managers in a two year period; all through investing in our employees’ career development. We are genuinely passionate and proud of our ability to “build the people who help build our company “.
What makes Tempest different from its competitors?
“We make sure everyone walks away from a business relationship with us feeling that they have a fair deal – whether as career partners to our candidates, recruitment partners to our clients or employers to our staff. We don’t pretend to have the cheapest rates – we do however justify our charges, by delivering on our promises and making sure that every recruitment solution we provide is the right one, adding value way beyond the original brief.
We are specialists within the social work and education sectors and take our responsibility to these vital services very seriously. Consultants are incredibly motivated, work hard and pro-actively search for the best candidates available on the market; we rarely advertise and instead generate candidates through referrals and intensive CV searching.
Our expert teams are united by one thing – connecting the best talent with the best employers, to deliver the best service possible.”
