Perfect Placement UK Ltd was formed in October 2003 by Lisa and Glenn Unstead, a daughter and father-in-law team who originate from strong service-related backgrounds. Having identified that the other specialists in this field were failing to meet clients’ expectations; their shared goal was to provide a niche recruitment service to the Norfolk automotive sector. Following immediate success, the business enjoyed rapid growth across the East Anglian region and new consultants were recruited to the team with a strategy of eventually replicating the business model across the UK.
Early 2005 saw our business moving into purpose-built premises which allowed further growth and Perfect Placement became the automatic choice for first-class motor trade recruitment across the southern regions of England. This under-one-roof concept proved popular with both clients and candidates alike and was fully aligned with our Directors’ philosophy of constantly delivering the highest possible levels of service.
In 2007, Perfect Placement’s unique approach to automotive recruitment expanded to reach across all regions of the UK. Ongoing recruitment, constant specialist training and over £1M investment in the latest technology, plus a lot of hard work, were combined together with the acquisition of our current 4,000sq/ft premises as a dedicated one-stop recruitment centre for the nation’s automotive sector.
Now, our business operates with a team of 35 highly-trained staff, comprising 16 dedicated recruiters: Principal Consultants and Area Managers, supported by Trainee Consultants and administrative staff together with a team of hands-on Directors. Everyone in the organisation shares the same passion, belief and drive; fully realising the importance of maintaining our position as the UK’s leading automotive recruiter by delivering exceptional, uncompromising service and constantly exceeding expectations.
But it doesn’t end here... Our belief in the winning formula of continual investment into the very best people and advanced technology remains as it was on day one. This, along with our desire to remain the number-one choice in UK automotive recruitment. In the exciting years to come, Perfect Placement will diversify to cover the commercial plant and other market sectors, whilst consolidating our position in the UK automotive sector where we intend to fill the vast majority of all positions. From a position of domestic market leadership, Perfect Placement will spread its influence overseas with diversification to the Middle East and the emerging BRIC nations, where it aims to realise its full potential through the provision of the most experienced, highest-quality recruitment services available.
