Building a recruitment
business that everyone loves

Trusted by clients. Unrivalled experience. Unparalleled knowledge. Market leading provider. Innovative approach.

The list of overused buzzwords goes on, and their use does little to differentiate one recruitment consultancy from another. Our difference is the approach we take with our clients and candidates.

In 2007, we set out to build a recruitment business that would better connect the right people to the right roles at the right time. We’ve been doing precisely that ever since and year-on-year growth for each of the last 15 years has seen us grow into a robust and knowledgeable team. Robertson Bell has continued to evolve and adapt to the ever-changing needs of the Public and Not for Profit Sector organisations we help.


The move to an Employee Ownership Trust 

2022 marked the year that Robertson Bell was sold to an Employee Ownership Trust. Reaffirming Stuart's ambition for further growth, the move to sell to an EOT was aimed at building a legacy for the employees who will be creating the company’s future successes.

This move will help protect our deep-rooted values, culture, and emphasis on our people, whilst being a unique opportunity for our people to take on more responsibility and leadership.

Recruitment is about people. It is understanding each individual, the problems they need solving, their frustrations and expectations, motivations and ambitions, and what they want most from their recruitment partner.

This is where being a straight-talking, open and transparent recruiter can make a real difference to you and your organisation.

With demand for top talent across the Not for Profit and Public Sectors at its highest for over a decade, with no sign of slowing down, the need for having the right recruitment partner in place to ensure a successful hiring strategy has never been greater.

Choose a job you love and you will never work a day in your life.


We started with the intention of building a recruitment business that we would have wanted to engage with as hiring managers – one that is passionate about the work it does, strives to provide the best service and best people with every assignment, and helps organisations to build even greater teams.

It is a long-term investment in this sector and one that has and continues to greatly benefit our clients, our candidates and ourselves.

It is for these reasons that Robertson Bell has been accepted onto the UK’s most important supplier frameworks:
