About us

Recruitment pioneers since 1987

Martin Personnel has built up a wealth of knowledge in the field of recruitment over 30 years and has become a trusted advisor to companies looking to hire staff, particularly in blue collar sectors like manufacturing and logistics.

“We are well known for our ability to understand our clients and become partners rather than just suppliers”, says owner, Mark Douglas. He adds, “Candidates become part of the extended family as we get to know their circumstances, preferences and unique personalities to ensure that the right person is put in the right job.”

Mark took over the business in 2007 when the original owner, Verity Martin, was ready to retire. Verity started Martin Personnel in 1987 and was a pioneer in the field of temporary recruitment; carving out a reputation for providing reliable solutions to complex recruitment requirements. She chose Mark to pick up where she left off knowing that his expertise and personal philosophy of ‘valuing people’ would allow it to continue with the same ethos that had helped establish its success. All these years later, Martin  Personnel is still 'All About People'.
