A little bit about us
Brook Street then and now
Brook Street first opened its doors in 1946, founded by Margery Hurst who set to work with little more than an idea and a drive to succeed. Her ambition was clear; following the end of World War 2 to deliver a quality recruitment service and to supply London with talented temps. Over 70 years later, our founder’s drive remains ingrained in the way we work. We’ve grown into one of the UK’s leading recruitment agencies − matching thousands of people with meaningful job opportunities at more than 4,500 companies every year. Delivering a quality service to suit the needs of clients and candidates alike was important to our founder Margery Hurst and it remains important to us today.
Across our 50+ high street locations, we make hiring and job searching more personal. Our nationwide reach means we can engage with jobseekers and employers in person, allowing us to perfectly tailor our approach to their unique requirements. But we also have the nationwide infrastructure and innovative technology that’s needed to make the process seamless and hassle free. That’s why jobseekers turn to us when they’re looking to change roles, take the first step into employment, or re-enter the workplace. And it’s why employers across all sectors trust us to find their ideal new recruits, no matter how big or small their hiring requirements.
