Contract Personnel are Branching Out

As one of East Anglia's leading independent recruitment agencies we are proud to announce that we are branching out further in 2016! We currently have offices in Norwich and Thetford and our new Diss office will be open for business in September 2016.

From the start of Contract Personnel’s humble beginnings we have seen a continuous level of growth in all areas of the business including staff members, expertise, branches and most importantly - placements for candidates in new job roles! Founded by Natalie Chapman in 1989 the company’s directorship has gone from strength to strength with Diane Harper joining forces in 1992 and Sarah Edwards in 1994 to become Director in 2011.

Our team is full of incredible talent and professional individuals, most of whom have successfully completed the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) exams. The confederation is a non-profit organisation that is solely dedicated to the recruitment industry. We find it extremely important that members of our team can successfully understand, implement and (of course) pass the REC exams. We take great pride in the goals our team have achieved and we hope to see many more successes in the future.

At Contract Personnel, we pride ourselves in providing a service to our clients that evoke both financial and ethical value. We have tried and tested processes to ensure our specialist sectors can understand the requirement in hand and select the right candidate for the available role. In a recent EDP publication, Sarah Edwards said “We were the first agency in East Anglia to be audited by the REC in 2005, and the second in the UK”. “It’s an independent endorsement of our practices and standards”.

As we lead the way providing professional and practical recruitment we are actively engaging with the community. Contract Personnel have worked with many local companies to support the community in which we thrive. Having commissioned a dragon in the 2015 GoGo Dragons campaigns we have also sponsored Open Norwich, Norfolk Ski Club, Wymondham Rugby Club, The Norfolk Polo Festival, Diss Rugby Club and Bury St Edmunds Rugby club. After sponsoring Norwich City FC for a number of years we also recently increased our sponsorship to become an official Recruitment partner of the club.
