Our story will tell you how we got here, but our niche specialism is what sets us apart. In-house recruiting is our baby and that’s all we recruit for. We’re not a Rec-2-Rec finding a home for candidates who no longer want to work in agencies, and we’re not an HR recruitment agency reacting to client demand within an HR team.

We have an in-depth understanding of the value that in-house recruiting adds to any organisation and extensive experience of how to make it great – that’s more than enough to keep us busy and engaged every day.

Aspen Superhero


At Aspen, we recognize that recruitment functions are relatively small and if we do our job right, whether you’re a client or a candidate, it may be some time before you need us again. It’s important that you know you’ll get the same dedicated service that any key customer should, whether you use us frequently or very occasionally. And because we know the internal recruitment market better than anyone else, you can come to us for a very potent solution to the gap in your team, or your next career move, that’s as good as any service you’ll get from a regular provider. What’s more, when you don’t need us anymore, here’s the good news…we won’t harass you, but we’d love to work with you again.


Well, that’s not always true – check out our endorsements for a start! But the big news is that we know that ideally you’d like to recruit directly because that’s what you do best: owning the process, managing the experience and saving costs as a hiring manager or a candidate. When you do need a partner, you want delivery and you probably want it fast, whether you’re building your team or finding a new role.

At Aspen we’re built to deliver around an exclusive network of in-house recruitment professionals to help spread the development of in-house functions. The service you get reflects this and crucially, we measure our performance by the longevity of our placed candidates, their own promotions and successes, the plaudits our client recruiting teams receive, and the referrals we receive… not on sales calls.
