About Clockwork

We are an established Recruitment Agency, based in Pirbright, Surrey with a passion for connecting people within the workplace.  We have an excellent reputation within the industry, providing permanent, temporary and contract staff.  Our team is highly experienced with a friendly, honest and professional approach.

Our fundamental belief is to offer an excellent service everytime, and dedicate ourselves to fully understand the current job market and ever-changing employment environment and economic climate.  We pride ourselves on being one of the most trusted and efficient recruitment agencies within Surrey.



Having started my career in 1996, I’m now the owner of Clockwork Recruitment. My brand statement is to-the-point and perfectly summed up by “To US, It’s PERSONAL!”  I am dedicated to ‘outstanding customer service’ which I believe has led to a successful career in recruitment, as well as maintaining a flexible and hardworking attitude, which I have instilled in my team.

“The majority of our business is based on referral, both from clients and candidates alike. From negotiating a deal to interacting face to face, we have a warm and welcoming attitude and know that the more we put in the more everyone gets out.”

“I never thought I’d have my own business, but I have always been extremely focused and passionate about recruitment. I also immerse myself into the local community having been involved in many other projects including Woking Chamber of Commerce, Woking Means Business and CMPP. I’ve recognised that hard work and networking, whilst giving back to the community truly does pay off. Having a team around me who share that same belief is something I’m incredibly proud of.”

You’ll find that everyone at Clockwork Recruitment has a passion for connecting people, and are fully dedicated to their candidates, clients and community.
