About Us

Shenley Recruitment brings a traditional professionalism to modern recruitment, quality above quantity and straight talking consultants.

We started in recruitment over 30 years ago working with various Media, Marketing, Catering, Hospitality and Financial clients.  Our Directors have connections in America and were already prepared for the UK internet boom in the early 90’s, which affected every industry.   In the early 90’s clients had little understanding of eCommerce and our expertise helped us break into this new market.  Where would we be now without a Website or App to view?

From this early start into eCommerce we have now worked with some of the leading companies within Anti Piracy, Brand Protection, Software, eRetail, SaaS, Digital and Data Science to name but a few.

Our Search and Selection service is provided at all levels; from Graduates to Directors and our clients have challenged us to recruit in all areas of their business throughout Europe.  We have always accepted the challenge and provided them with the candidates they need.

Our clients recommend us because we take on board what both they and our candidates are looking for in order to find the perfect match.  We are able to provide a thorough search and selection service which is undertaken by your dedicated Consultant in order to match your requirements perfectly.

Our candidates have often become our clients mainly due to the time we spend on them, irrespective of whether we make a placement and can provide a 360 service to them also:  CV writing, interview techniques and helping them find the perfect job for them.

We take the time to understand our clients and candidates specific requirements and a good communication link throughout the whole process.  You will be provided with a frank, honest service from Consultants that do not work to targets but instead work for you.

Carl Graham

Carl started his career in Telecoms where he held various technical roles.  In the 1990 he was employed as Operations Manager for one of the first successful ecommerce companies in the UK, an internet trading site.  Carl helped the company evolve until it was eventually sold and is still operating very successfully to this day.  Carl had been heavily involved with the continual recruitment for the company and had already established working relationships with Wendy at this point.  He was asked to join Wendy in the new venture and his technical knowledge and expertise have been invaluable, enabling him to recruit I.T. staff for some of the top FTSE 100 organisations in the UK.
