Setting the benchmark

Why Ashdown Group?


We have an unrivalled ability to find more candidates in any UK location, with even the rarest of skillsets.


With talent applied to an outstanding technology set, our consultants are positioned to delivery high calibre candidates, insight and knowledge as part of our standard service.


Our account managers aren't sales people, they dedicate all their time to their existing customer base. They don't cold-call for business allowing them more hours to apply their recruitment dexsterity for you.


We're so confident we'll get it right first time, we offer a 100% rebate on all permanent recruitment for a full 3 months.



If you would like to take advantage of our 12.5% fee you will need to allow us to work on your vacancy for a few days exclusively. After you can approach other agencies should you feel you need to and our fee remains 12.5%.

If you have used another agency or would like to involve another agency, our fee is 15%. We have a strong track record of finding people for vacancies other agencies are having difficulty with.



A heavy investment has helped us build a contractor database of just over 200,000 highly skilled people.

With sensible margins, Ashdown Group pay our contractors as much as possible.

For example, a £300 per day contractor on three month contract has a 15% margin.



Generally for 9 months to 24 months where a general skillset is required. Not as expensive as contract day-rate and charged in-line with the permanent fee structure fixed term contracts are a great solution to maternity or secondment cover and long-term absences.
