Our values

About Sarah West Recruitment

We're an independent agency, with a team of seven, based in Exeter, that has a reputation for delivering an outstanding, quality service to the candidates and clients we work with.

Established in 2008, our team supports many successful, growing organisations from across the South West region, looking to grow their teams locally as well as further afield.

We specialise in permanent roles, primarily within Sales, IT and Technical, Marketing, HR, Office Support and Customer Service. Our sister organisation, Tribus People, are specialists in Executive Recruitment.

O​ver and above our core recruitment activity, we're passionate about supporting and getting involved in other local initiatives too. These include:

  • The National Citizen Service (Exeter): Running employability skills sessions for 16 and 17 year olds

  • Inspiring Girls Exeter: A mentoring programme designed to encourage young girls to think broadly about potential career and job opportunities

  • Plymouth University: The Cube's Professional Entrepreneurial Mentoring Programme

  • Speaker opportunities: Sharing our recruitment expertise and our insight in to the local employment market. Recently we've supported events hosted by The Devon & Plymouth Chamber of Commerce, Collaborate South West, Natwest Boost and the Social Recruiting Show, amongst others

  • Tribe Exeter: A partner of this non for profit initiative designed to drive economic growth in Exeter, by decreasing the B2B trade that leaves the area

  • Supporting local charities: Our team has participated in workshops, reviewed processes and suggested improvements when organisations have found candidate attraction a challenge

  • Raising money!: For the past three years, we've been raising money for Hospiscare, hosting coffee mornings (we do love our cake!), pub quizzes, black tie events and even cycling the length of Great Britain
