About Us

Royle Recruitment, founded in 1966, was one of the first recruitment agencies in York.

We are a family business who have been putting skilled people into commercial, professional and technical positions for 50 years. Our aim is to be friendly, helpful and always approachable to both clients and candidates.

We supply a wide range of local businesses as well as filling vacancies across the UK for multinational companies. Our experience, friendliness and professionalism, plus a database of several thousand people helps us to serve clients including York College, The University of York, Omnicom, The Shepherd Group, Townsend Harrison, RWE, Eon, EDF Energy, Drax Power, Alstom, Siemens and Scottish & Southern.

We have an honest recruitment process and don’t advertise fake jobs to collect as many candidates as possible. Strict vetting, candidate skills assessments and one-to-one interviews help us get to know our applicants in depth.

In an industry where consultants hop from job to job and impersonal national agencies dominate the market, we believe our close-knit team is a huge asset to our clients. We think it’s very important that our consultants are out and about getting to know our client’s businesses. It means they know exactly who will be the best person to fit the job when it comes to recruiting.

Almost fifty years of experience, competitive rates and our direct, honest methods of working mean that many of our clients have been with us since the early stages of their businesses and candidates work for us time and time again.

We hope you choose to join us too.
