Search UK


Richard Scott, Managing Director started the company in 2000, having spent 15 years previously working at main board level. Search UK operate within the automotive sector and have dedicated motor and property trade consultants covering the whole of the UK.

Our principles in recruitment have never changed since day one and we stand by the following eight fundamental principles:

  • We know your marketplace, culture and candidate requirements.
  • We are independent, enabling flexibility in sourcing and continuing contact.
  • We have an extensive network of candidates.
  • We maintain our market awareness and relationships, treating candidates on an equal basis with clients – 50% of our candidates are referrals.
  • We use a consultancy approach, giving you an honest, straight forward and time-saving service – we will never make promises we cannot keep.
  • We select only those candidates that fit your requirements – there will be no flood of CVs – you will want to meet all those that we recommend.
  • We want to build a long-term relationship with you, continuing to provide the right candidate at the right time, saving you time, hassle and money.

 The wrong hire can cost you up to one third of that employee’s annual salary – in inefficiency, customer costs, learning and development time and recruiting fees.

A lot of our work involves replacing under performers, hence the discreet and confidential nature of our work which means clients put their upmost trust in our ability. We still treat Search UK as a boutique, specialist recruitment firm and can now boast an enviable and impressive portfolio from SME’s to PLC’s.

We are keen to develop a relationship with new clients and add to our portfolio of satisfied customers who use us an extension to their business. Above all, we want you to enjoy working with us and we are confident that we will successfully deliver a service to you that will give you the confidence to use us on a regular basis.
