We offer you a highly consultative service and we will take time to get to know you and to understand your needs.  In fact, we are so confident in our highly selective service that we also offer a free replacement or money back guarantee, to guarantee your peace of mind. We have no up front charges (unless you opt for our tailored, retained service) and our fees are strictly on a success basis only, so you really have everything to gain and nothing to lose!

Our company has already filled two positions through People First. Our experience of the company has been overwhelmingly positive and our account manager is a pleasure to work with. She is very attentive, always ready to pick up the phone and listen to us, and proactive in suggesting ways we can improve our human resources. We will certainly be using the company again and will definitely recommend them to other people.
