Obscurant Recruitment Solutions Ltd Cheshire

We’re on a mission. It’s not a mission to be the biggest recruitment firm – it’s a mission to be the best. We don’t just want happy customers – we want customers who are delighted. We love what we do and strive to make placements that deliver a real win/win for the candidate and employer. We’re good at listening, understanding – and then, above all else, delivering. If you think that ‘recruitment is recruitment’ then think again. Obscurant Recruitment Solutions is recruitment, redefined.

A truly personal service

It’s easy for someone to say that they offer a ‘personal service’ but what does that really mean?
At Obscurant we believe that it means creating a bespoke service around the needs of the client – and then delivering that service in a friendly, honest way.
So, we work with clients to understand exactly what they want – and Obscurant Recruitment’s managing director, Heather Maxfield, works personally on every single placement.
Heather’s worked in recruitment for over 30 years, including a successful 22 years with one of the largest PLC recruiters

What makes us different?

We don’t go out of our way to be ‘different’ as such, but we do work hard to be the best.
We always go the extra mile – and something is never just ‘good enough’ as far as we’re concerned.
It has to be right.
We’re also genuinely experienced, all placements are worked on by time-served professionals who have developed real expertise.

Obscurant Recruitment Solutions is focused on specific industry sectors, hiring people for: oil and gas jobs; energy and utilities jobs; engineering and technical jobs; transport and logistics jobs; business support jobs; executive and director jobs.
