Stuart Bell – Founder, CEO
” Robertson Bell was founded in 2007 out of my aspiration to provide an alternative type of recruitment service. Honesty, integrity and professionalism did not abound in our industry and unfortunately that can still be true today. Robertson Bell is different. We offer a straight forward, genuinely consultative recruitment service to those seeking employment and organisations looking to recruit talented people. In addition, we are proud and passionate people who work tirelessly on behalf of our clients. We recruit Finance, Fundraising, HR, ICT and Procurement specialists, typically at mid-senior level, with the charitable and wider not for profit sector. You can trust us and rely on us to deliver. That is our promise.”
“To be the most respected employer and recruiter of choice, providing the leading recruitment service to the not for profit and public sector in each of our chosen markets.“
