About us

Founded in 1996, Prestige Recruitment Services are an independently owned recruitment consultancy that offers niche market recruitment services through a number of highly trained recruitment professionals. Specialising within Business Services, Digital & Technology, Technical, Accountancy & Finance and Fashion & Retail, we have gained an outstanding reputation for providing a fresh, proactive and honest approach. Originally established in Birmingham, we have expanded through the years and now have offices in Warrington, Wilmslow and a specialist branch called Zoot Recruit which is based in Liverpool. We pride ourselves on our recruitment success rate and have always tried to be forward thinking; employing new strategies, systems and approaches that are in line with our long-term ethical commitment to our market sector.  


The Founders  

After 10 successful years in recruitment, Jeanette Wharrad took a year out to travel Europe, and it was on a sun-drenched beach that the idea for a unique recruitment business was formed. She had a vision for something fresh - something that would use a consultative process that seemed to be lacking from the industry at that time. A vision for an honest, ethical business that took time out to really understand clients and candidate's needs was born! Jeanette approached Annejulie Webb, who she had previously worked across a desk with for five years. Jeanette knew Annejulie shared and supported the exact values that were important to make their exciting new venture happen. Together they pooled their money, planned their strategy and the two opened the doors to a humble office in Solihull. 


The Evolution

Since then, we have had to evolve more than once. We have learnt big lessons along the way and grown older and wiser, but we have never lost our enthusiasm for being that little bit different. Prestige Recruitment Services are constantly moving forward with new ways of working and expanding our business across the UK. We are an ethically focused recruitment company that gets real results for both our clients and candidates and we are proud to say that although our strategies and systems may have changed, our values have never wavered from our original vision of what a great recruitment company looks like. We have built up a tremendous team of dedicated Consultants that hold our company culture and ethos at heart, and it is these committed people that have helped to build our great business.
