Looking Beyond the Obvious
Signet Resources was founded in 2003 with the express purpose of providing high quality resourcing solutions to companies of any size. When the business formed it was done on the premise of ‘Resourcing with integrity’ and that has been our mantra from our beginnings to the current day.
We opened our doors for business in Maidenhead back in 2003 with the ambition of servicing the wide variety of organisations situated along the Thames Valley Corridor, although many of our clients work with us nationally.
Putting ourselves at the heart of this area was a smart move as this part of the country has experienced very strong commercial development, helping fuel the growth of Signet Resources into one of the most well-respected recruitments businesses in the South East. Over the last 16 years we’ve had the great fortune to help companies large and small meet their recruitment needs as well as helping talented people find careers they are genuinely passionate about.
Our reason for starting Signet Resources was born out of the fact that, as ethical, experienced recruitment professionals, we felt as a boutique business we could provide a more tailored, bespoke approach.
We believed that recruitment should be much more than just a CV service where client A is linked to candidate B and they’re left to get on with it. To us that felt too weak, too random and too often left both sides frustrated with the whole process
We sought to add a much deeper and more useful role into the recruitment mix, working with candidates to help them find roles that would achieve their career goals and helping clients develop the right criteria to find people to bring genuine added value to their businesses. By helping both parties identify what they’re really looking for it makes for a much higher likelihood of finding the right match.
When we started out our focus was on permanent Head Office support roles but over the years we have become specialists in HR, Marketing, Finance and Senior Commercial Operations roles for permanent, retained assignments, interim and contract capacities.
I have been through many interview processes with recruiters to date but none have shown the level of care & attention that Jane has. Throughout the entire interview process Jane ensured that I was fully briefed, well prepared and had all the information required at all times. Communication was excellent and I knew exactly what was happening pre & post interviews. No sitting around twiddling thumbs! I have now secured an excellent role in an amazing company and could not be happier. I would highly recommend Jane to place you in your dream job! Candidate placed at Landmark Space Ltd
To some up in two words - ‘Tremendously Supportive’ I never felt that I was going at it alone. It felt that Signet wanted the best for me, even with the prepping. They constantly kept me in the loop even when there was no news. Candidate feedback
Choosing the right Recruitment partner when looking for your next role is so important, luckily I came across Hannah and the team at Signet. Hannah met with me and took time to understand my skills, experience and motivations and as a result was able to make accurate recommendations about which companies I should and should not consider. Hannah arranged several interviews and the process was seamless, easy and informative. Due to Hannah’s support as well as Nicky they helped steer me in the right direction and I successfully took a new role with Zebra Technologies. Hannah has now become a trusted partner when hiring talent in to our EMEA team. When you are either recruiting for your team or seeking your next role I would highly recommend working with Signet.

Overall, I had a very good experience. I was very happy with the time frame and attention given to me and the process. I was briefed well, on potential negative things on the company as well as the positive. I appreciated the honesty and this to me demonstrated the depth of experience that Nicky had, which fostered trust. Feedback, from the company I interviewed with and from me was followed up, and I was kept informed on any delays that came up. I also didn't feel pressured into the role and that my position (being in the process for other roles) was respected. I felt supported. Whenever I wanted to speak to Nicky, she got back to me promptly (I haven't always found this with other agencies). Nicky had a good understanding of the business, and of HR, and took the time to understand / listen to what I wanted / any concerns that I had. Lisa Wooldridge, Head of HR
