Who is Four?

We’re the team that will get you the role you deserve, find you the candidates you’ve always been looking for, or be the work colleagues you’ll call friends. We’re here to invest in you, so at Four, you’ll never just be a number.

 

The founding directors, brother and sister, Claire and Phil Sofield established the business back in 2008 with an aim to create a brand to be proud of, focused on quality and a desire to do a great job. A brand that has a genuine interest in helping businesses find great staff to grow and flourish, alongside supporting individuals’ careers.
 

Our culture is at the heart of what we do. Our talented team are selected in a very different way to a typical recruitment company.  We select individuals who may come from very different backgrounds, who we can see will fit well into our team.  People who are bright, engaging and above all get us. 

This ensures that we not only provide the very best level of service for all of our clients and candidates but a great place to work for our fantastic team.

Our People

 

It might be a cliché but, our people are what makes us Four; they create our culture and they provide a great service for clients and candidates. 

 

Our consultants average length of service is over five years – unheard of in our industry which is an average of 18 months.
