The success of Middleton Jeffers is built upon the outstanding relationships which we share with our clients, along with our ability to grasp the problem and solve it as quickly and effectively as possible. The ethos of this business is all about quality and the RIGHT FIT. We recruit worldwide and span a range of industries, from interior design, private households, private members clubs, fine wine, nutrition, finance, architecture and everything in between. Repeat business and referrals means we are always busy and aim to place people into jobs that they look forward to being at each day.

We do also have a temporary recruitment side to the business. We have provided secretarial and administrative temps for years, however we have branched towards the CGI side, as we have a Graphic Designer on our team. We now have a bank of Graphic Designers, CAD and CGI Artists, freelance Photographers, Social Media and Marketing temps. If you are able to give us 24 hours notice, or more if possible, we will endeavour to provide the perfect temp for your business.
