Getting To Know us
In 2003, we realised there was a need for a professional, friendly recruitment agency in Shrewsbury specialising in office based roles. Since then, we have placed hundreds of candidates across a range of sectors, both locally and more recently on a national level.
The consultants are all from Shropshire and between them have a wealth of experience working in the recruitment industry. They understand the needs of both local businesses and job seekers.
In 2015 & 2016 we were awarded “Best Independent Office Recruitment Agency – UK” and “Best Office Personnel Recruitment Agency in Shropshire” by Corporate Vision Magazine and awarded “Most Outstanding Office Personnel Recruitment Agency” by the Acquisition International Magazine in 2016.

Meg began her career in recruitment in 1998 and co-founded Red Recruitment in 2003. In 2010, she began offering professional CV and LinkedIn profile writing services for people in the local area alongside her recruitment and management role. In 2014, due to its success, Meg established and managed Red CV Writing for more than four years, which attracted a global client base. In 2018, she completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Career Guidance and has since moved away from daily operations at Red Recruitment and Red CV Writing to deliver a varied and engaging careers programme as well as impartial, client-focused career guidance to young people in a local secondary school.
Meg lives on the outskirts of Shrewsbury with her husband and son. In her spare time, she enjoys trips in her VW campervan (Lloyd), mountain biking, scuba diving, hiking and travelling to scenic locations around the world.
