Meet the


Graeme Brotherton was born and bred in the North East of England and after attending university in Leeds, he stayed in the city to embark on a successful career with a FTSE 250 International Recruitment Firm. Developing a hunger for sales and rising through the ranks as a successful manager across a number of divisions, Graeme decided to take the next natural step, setting up his own recruitment firm.

Outside of work, Graeme is sports-mad. As an avid Newcastle United fan and keen footballer himself, he spends most of his free time keeping himself entertained/despairing over his perennially disappointing football team.

Graeme loves asking a question and will be extremely polite in doing so. He is looking forward to this challenge and working with like-minded people on this venture.


“Graeme’s knowledge of recruitment, enthusiasm and his unrivalled conscientious approach allows him to support both the teams he manages and the clients he works with. This meticulous approach and his drive to stay at the forefront of both recruitment and the sectors which he works, allows not only for his continuous development but ensures the maximum development of those that work for him. His determination to succeed and grow the business is contagious, constantly leading from the front and trying to push boundaries to exceed targets”
(Colleague, Manchester)

“Graeme is someone I have a great deal of professional admiration for; his insatiable appetite to work hard and achieve success without sacrificing service standards for his customers means he deserves every inch of the remarkable success he has enjoyed in his career to date.

The way he conducts himself day to day filters down effortlessly into the teams he directs and ensures a motivated, driven and committed work force who are every bit as reliable, trustworthy and focused on delivery for their clients as he is. I would always strongly encourage clients to engage with him and his teams, as I would other recruiters to work for him”
(Business Development Manager, Blue-Chip Company, London)

“Graeme is my prefered recruiter of choice. His polite manner and superb grasp of requirements have always set him apart from the rest. I would recommend him without hesitation”
(Software House, Leeds)

“In an industry littered with sharks, Graeme’s willingness to get to work with you as a candidate + be transparent on rates is extremely refreshing. His interaction throughout the process meant that I was made aware of how my application was going even if there was no feedback at all. Having been placed by Graeme twice previously, I look forward to working with him again”
(Developer, Manchester)
