Welcome to Hunter Selection

We are the UK’s leading specialist recruitment service. We find exceptional candidates for employers with specific requirements across Engineering, Manufacturing, Service and Technology sectors

Hunter Selection is the UK’s leading recruitment service for Engineering, Manufacturing, Service and Technology.

We pride ourselves on our national reach and local focus. Our team of first-class recruitment specialists are spread over four regional offices giving us a local depth-of-knowledge that’s the envy of our rivals.

Russell Smith and Nick Stovold started Hunter Selection from the humble surroundings of a small loft office with one phone line – taking it in turns to make phone calls! Russell was an experienced Managing Director of a nationwide recruitment and training organisation, keen to build a business with all the values and beliefs that had made him successful. And Nick was looking for his next competitive challenge following his successes as a cricketer.

The marketplace responded positively to our professional and open approach and we quickly outgrew the loft and moved to the magnificent surroundings of Leigh Court. Very soon we had begun recruiting for ourselves. 2007 saw the opening of our Cardiff office, headed up by Richard Davies who joined the business as a top performer in Engineering Recruitment.

With plenty of hard work and perseverance, we continued to grow, and we opened a Coventry office in 2010, and a Stafford office in 2015.

At Hunter Selection, we have steered a course through many tough economic times and made sure that we were ready each time to take full advantage of the upturn. Through these times we have stuck by our staff and continued to advertise and invest. It’s at times like these that teamwork, loyalty, and tenacity really matter.

Within our head office in Bristol we now have dedicated specialist teams in Technology, Service, and Facilities, Fire & Security in addition to Engineering & Manufacturing teams in all offices.

We have grown purely through organic growth; every person started where you will start and have developed with us by creating long-term client relationships and new divisions & teams – there are no restrictions on how you can develop and progress with Hunter Selection – why not join our successful team?

Fast paced, competitive workplace

Good place to work for someone who is encouraged by good commission structure.

Rigid structured day, good that the position was 360 so the whole day wasn't focussed on one half of the process. This also meant you could be in control of the whole process from beginning to end.

Very competitive culture, to be expected in the recruitment sector.

Not much flexibility to try your own ideas.
