Firstcomm is a boutique recruitment business, based locally out of the north of England, with a pan European reach. We work with clients across a broad portfolio of industry sectors, such as manufacturing, digital, finance and IT. Our services include permanent recruitment, recruitment training and expense management consulting.

A long-term approach

We ask ourselves with every client “how can I add value in this situation?” We give straight forward advice to customers and candidates, plus treat every relationship as a partnership. This means a lot of our success has been through repeat business.

Pay less!

We understand that year on year customers are under pressure to manage costs. Through tailored recruitment training, we can help you ensure that you are using your recruitment budget wisely, even if this means helping you find your own people directly. Yes really!

Smart thinking

From the days of flicking through a rolodex, through to the latest social media tools, how we find candidates has changed dramatically in the last 20 years. We ensure Firstcomm is at the forefront of trying new and innovative sourcing techniques, to stay ahead of the competition.

Valuable lessons

Our professional approach means we also maintain a good old fashioned work ethos of hard graft, valuing hands on relationships, and listening to feedback from our customers and candidates.
