Work for us

Hunter Selection is the UK’s leading recruitment service for Engineering, Manufacturing and Technical Service and Sales. 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 a great reputation for man management.

The global downturn took its toll on all companies and those allied to the manufacturing sector were particular hard hit. At Hunter Selection, we steered a course which minimised the damage to the business in the short-term and made sure that we were ready to take full advantage of the upturn, when it came, by sticking with our staff and continuing to advertise and invest. It’s at times like these that teamwork, loyalty and tenacity really matter.

With plenty of hard work and perseverance, we continued to grow and the business opened up a Coventry office in 2010 headed up by Simon Kinson, an experienced Manager within our sector and continuing our policy of recruiting sporting pedigree.

Today we have 40 staff in five teams, most recently opening the Stafford office in 2015, and we are one of the leading consultancies in engineering and manufacturing recruitment across the UK. We are regularly selected as a preferred supplier to major employers and are now forging a reputation for first class service and results in The Built Environment and Business Services sectors.
