“We’re leading the Char*Ge, changing the perception
of what good, quality and customer-focused
recruitment is all about.”

Char*Ge are genuinely passionate about recruitment and are truly dedicated to making a real difference to the ‘recruitment experience’ for both our clients and candidates.

We really value the relationships we have within our networks and strive to build meaningful long term partnerships with both our candidates and client organisations, whether a large blue-chip corporate or local SME.  Ultimately, we care about finding the right people for the right jobs.

As a privately owned business, we are not bound by corporate governance, confined by process or driven by meaningless KPI’s.  We are only interested in delivering the very right result – every time.

Whilst our approach may sound refreshing, our values are more traditional – we are a services business and therefore focused on providing the best possible solution for all concerned.  This is achieved simply through hard work, rigorous yet tailored process, good open communication and the human touch.

  • Lisa placed me in my current role, throughout every step of the way she would communicate, update & keep me informed of any progress. She listened to what I wanted, rather than suggesting roles that she wanted me to go for. She was incredibly professional & I would certainly use her again – both as a client & as a candidate.

    Commercial Manager – Media Company in Kent
  • Lisa recently found the perfect job for me at a time when I needed it most. I was working in London and I saw my 6 year old daughter for an hour a day if I was lucky  because of the time consuming and frustrating commute into and out of London. We had only been in the country for a few months so my daughter really needed me to be around as much as possible.  Lisa listened patiently to all my job  requirements and she searched extensively until she found the job I was looking for. Lisa reassured me and was confident that the right job would come along. I found Lisa to be very knowledgeable about the industry, friendly, understanding of my needs,  highly professional and she kept me informed every step of the way. Should I need to find another job in the future, Lisa will be my first and only port of call.

We partner with local businesses looking to reChar*Ge their workforce with new and exciting talent whilst offering individuals, our candidates, the opportunity to take Char*Ge of their careers.  As a local business, with our roots firmly in the area, we feel a genuine responsibility to make a positive impact on the community from which we generate our income.

As our business continues to grow, we will look at how we can support our local community in line with our values.  This might be through various sponsored sporting challenges in the name of local charities and causes (Lisa, one of our Directors, is an avid runner and “enjoys” the odd Mud-Run) or by being a brand sponsor in support of local events.

29/11/16:        We are enormously proud of our very first Char*Ge Community project.

As Talent Management is our game, we thought we’d support some exciting young, local talent in their game by sponsoring two youth football teams for the next two seasons.  Their new Char*Ge sponsored kits look fantastic.  Watch out for news on how Maidenbower Colts U7 Black team and  Maidenbower Colts U7 Red team get on in the Crawley Youth Football League.
