We continue to build relationships based on trust, honesty and recruitment expertise that meets the staffing needs of our existing and future clients across London and the South East.

Our Divisions

We offer recruitment expertise across a diverse range of industries and skill sets, recruiting for all levels, from entry through to senior executive. Our divisions cover four key areas of business, which are serviced by consultants with specialist experience and knowledge of recruiting candidates in those areas. You can have peace of mind that we will understand your requirements and have the ability to meet those needs, both today and in the years to come. 

We love what we do and over the last 10 years we have got to know what clients need from a recruitment consultant – someone who is responsive, thorough, and accountable. Your time is valuable and you need someone who cares as much about your business as you do. We understand the kinds of challenges  faced on a daily basis when recruiting for temporary or permanent staff. Combine that knowledge with our ability to listen and you have a great recruitment partner whether you are a client or a job seeker.

Our Team

Each member of our team shares our core values and this is reflected in the service they provide by taking the stress away from our stakeholders, providing an exceptional level of service, sourcing the best talent for the vacancies we entrusted with, supporting our candidates throughout their career with the appropriate awareness for our duty of care. We can only be as good as the team we have built, so please see below to find out more about the consultants that make us who we are today.

We take our corporate responsibility seriously

Charitable Support

At Pearson Whiffin we believe that it is important to give something back to the local community. For a number of years we have shown our commitment to this belief by choosing a charity close to us, locally or with some connection to a member of the team to make a charitable donation to.

We donate £10 from every permanent placement made over the year to our charity of choice, along with organising an annual 5-a-side football tournament, whereby teams pay a small fee to enter which is also contributed to the organisation we have pledged to support. Everyone at Pearson Whiffin is very proud of the fact that our hard work will also benefit others less fortunate than ourselves.

Below are the charities we’ve supported to date:

Environmental Awareness

We think everyone should take responsibility for their impact on the environment and lead by example from a business point of view. We actively encourage our team to be environmentally aware and our open door policy welcomes suggestions that improve our processes in line with this value. We operate a recycling bin program and our conscientious team have instigated a ‘car-share-to-work’ scheme to acknowledge the impact of CO2 emissions.

We ask you to please consider the environment before printing any pages from our website.
