Candidates

A service that’s as individual as you are

We’re not about volume; we’re about doing fewer things really rather well. The level of dedication we put in to your individual needs is unparalleled & no one will try harder to find you the right role.

The Huckleberry experience

Do more

Often, the lack of communication received when applying directly for a job can be frustrating, especially when you’re convinced you’re the ideal candidate. Our network is second to none. We give you access to the roles you didn’t know were there & we provide honest, realistic insights, as to your chances of success.

Keep you informed

Regular, honest feedback is key to a successful recruitment process. We keep you updated from the moment you engage with us, through to the day you start your new role. Once you’ve settled in, we’ll no doubt see you at our events, meet ups, or simply for a drink or two.

Make it personal

No two people are the same & even though we’re experts in our field, we never assume we know exactly what you do. That’s why we insist on meeting everyone in person before we get started. Only then can we represent you in the way you deserve.

 

Events

The Huckleberry launch party

We don't do things by halves. On Thursday 18th June, we gathered over 65 of Huckleberry's clients together, to celebrate our launch. With 5cc at The Singer Tavern as the backdrop & ample food & drink flowing all the way through until 1am; a great time was had by all. Our friends at Rewind provided the ultimate icing on the cake, by enabling everyone to experience being a Red Bull Air Race pilot on their remarkably lifelike Virtual Reality Flight Simulator.
