Sarah began working in recruitment in 1998 on relocating from the South East to Exeter. As a ‘top performer’ who doesn’t like to be held back by convention, Sarah’s answer to not being able to find a senior position in a recruitment agency locally was to start her own!  Since opening the doors of Sarah West Recruitment with Celina, she has never looked back. In her career to date Sarah has been the recruiter of choice for some of the UK’s biggest names including Cadburys Schweppes, BT, KCom Group and Edward Jones as well as some of the South West's newer and lesser known but no less vital organisations.
Sarah says:
“I still dance round the office each time I make a placement. It doesn’t matter if it’s working for the public or private sector, finding a position for a senior executive, building a new team for a start up or helping someone to get their career off the ground. I absolutely love my job!”

Julia is the Sales and Marketing Cooordinator at Sarah West Recruitment, and supports our recruitment activity too. She’s got a broad background in marketing and communications that she’s now drawing on for the team. The next few months will be busy, busy! 

Having recently moved to Devon and been on the look out for work herself, Julia fully understands the journey from a candidate’s point of view. She also has experience as a client on the look out for team members too.   

Julia says: 

“I love being part of the Sarah West team and as the newest addition have and will carry on learning a lot - which is what I thoroughly enjoy. Being able to put my marketing skills to good use in another industry is something I find really exciting.”

Lisa had an office management and HR background before joining the Sarah West Recruitment team in 2014 as a recruitment consultant. Having been on the ‘other side of the table’ when recruiting staff, Lisa is now able to draw on her experience when recruiting. She understands what’s important to both the hiring manager and the job seeker and works hard to make sure that both are happy and kept up to date throughout the recruitment process. Lisa runs the Commercial Office division and spends her days working on administration, technical support, customer service, finance and HR roles. 
Lisa says:
“My background in HR prepared me well to work in recruitment. I’ve seen the recruiting process from both sides so I have a unique view of what it’s like from everyone’s perspective. It can really help.”


What they say about us

We work hard to understand our clients and the people who come to us looking for new challenges. That means we are able to match up the right candidates with companies and jobs that will allow them to really shine. But, of course, don’t take our word for it.

Senior Manager

We recently turned to Sarah West Recruitment to help us fill a new position and were impressed with the professionalism and interest shown. We were supplied CV's within hours and interviewing within a few days. We now have a fantastic lady working alongside us as our Business Development Exec and getting to grips with the world of phones and telecoms.

Head of People and Operations

Thank you for once again giving us such a good selection of candidates to choose from. All the people we selected for interview were well briefed on both our business and the interview process and this allowed both them and us to get the most out of the process. The selected candidate has been brilliant and has settled in really well – thank you.

Managing Director

We've asked Sarah to look after our recruitment needs for the last 9 years and I really can't think of how any agency could do it better. She really gets to know your business and she's always focused on making sure the candidates are a really good fit for our culture.
