SF Recruitment earns prestigious national accolade

Chamber patron SF Recruitment has strengthened its position as a leading specialist recruiter, after being listed as a Sunday Times 100 Best Small Companies to Work For and commended for its learning and development, following a ceremony in London.

Positioned at 16, SF Recruitment has been praised for its commitment to achieving high employee engagement and also won the Learning and Development Special Award on the night.

SF Recruitment has made a significant investment into its employee engagement programme over the last two years. In addition to flexible working options, the company offers a range of benefits and incentives which allow employees to reduce their hours and enjoy an early finish on a Friday.

Saira Demmer, CEO at SF Recruitment, said: “We have developed a number of fantastic training programmes over the last few years and we are thrilled to have been recognised by The Sunday Times and Best Companies.

“In our day jobs, we are obsessed with matching the right people with their ideal roles, and for us to achieve this, we knew we had to make sure that all of our people were coming to work every day excited to be in their own ideal roles. Being part of a team of engaged, successful people is what we believe makes a business an employer of choice”

Earlier this year, SF Recruitment earned three-star accreditation by Best Companies, which is recognised as the UK standard in workplace development. Among the recent changes to the workplace, the company introduced market-leading enhanced maternity pay, length of service rewards and clear career development pathways.

Improving wellbeing has also been a key driver for the business, as Saira Demmer explained: “We have provided options for our people to focus on their physical, mental and financial wellbeing, at a time and in a way that suits them and their individual circumstances.”

“In addition to healthcare plans and gym memberships, we have regular visits from a mindfulness consultant and an anonymous counsellor is also available to employees who would like to discuss personal matters in a safe environment.”

SF Recruitment is the leading specialist recruiter in the Midlands, with offices in Nottingham, Birmingham and Leicester. Its specialist expertise stretches a number of areas, including executive; finance and accountancy; technology; office support; engineering; HR, sales and marketing; procurement; and supply chain.
