going the extra mile

Miles Recruitment Ltd is a privately owned boutique recruitment agency and consultancy.

We have well over 60 years of combined team experience in talent securing for a diverse range of personnel to companies throughout Wiltshire and the wider South West region. We have the capacity and reach to recruit nationally also.

Our team can support with permanent, fixed term contracts and temporary hires. Just contact us with your vacancy and we will support you with a tailored solution that’s right for your business requirements.

Our range of staffing and requirements are quite diverse and Annette has an excellent understanding of our business to the extent of me being able to call her with pretty much just a job title at times and she knows exactly what is required, having placed multiple people in that role previously. This obviously saves me a lot of time. Above all, Annette is a really honest recruiter who responds very quickly with quality candidates

To succeed in this post you must have a strong financial accounting background, as well as hold commercial acumen. Experience of new business tendering and projects will be highly beneficial.

Annette Alchin FIRP, MD

Annette always looked after me and kept me going with work over a long period of time going right back to 1993. She mentored and helped me and the fact that we are still in contact now is testament of the fact that she cared and is a true 'people person'. I wasn't just a number. I would definitely recommend her.
