Unique new Swindon employment agency has successful launch

By Anita Jaynes on July 1, 2015

Responsive Personnel, an innovative recruitment and career agency, has recently started business from its Swindon head office and found immediate success with both national brands  and local businesses. Danny Kimber and Steve Legg, two friends and both vastly experienced recruitment professionals, decided to take the leap from highly respected recruitment positions to setting up their own, original agency off Gipsy Lane in Swindon.

Danny Kimber, Managing Director of Responsive Personnel, said “With 50 years of recruitment experience within the team, we knew it was time to use that knowledge to set up something different and original. Responsive Personnel is much more than your traditional recruitment agency. We use a powerful personality profiling system to look at how an individual, as a person, will fit in to a team, and not just consider their capability.”

This system has helped them to immediate success in both permanent and temporary recruitment for many local businesses.

Steve Legg, Sales Director at Responsive Personnel, commented “We have recently worked with a Wiltshire logistics company to fill a number of roles across the warehousing, driving and commercial sectors.”

The Responsive Personnel approach has also led to a challenging contract with a national retail brand, based in Swindon, opening new stores right across the UK. Danny added, “This retailer needs a highly flexible workforce to support new store openings and localised recruitment wherever the stores are. We have managed to recruit teams in locations across the country, often at short notice, to ensure new stores are set up on time, with stock delivered and installed and every aspect of the new stores taken care of. It’s a demanding task where we have relied on our experience and a great team around us to enable our client to meet their ambitious expansion plans.”

Responsive Personnel works with employers in a range of sectors, including logistics, engineering, construction, hospitality, automotive and IT and is always on the lookout for new recruits across Wiltshire and the South West.
