About Us

Welcome to Heat. We’re a specialist recruitment agency that’s different by design.
Our mission is to improve people’s lives through work, and our vision is to put people at the heart of everything we do and become trusted partners to everyone we engage with. From humble beginnings as a start-up based in our CEO’s garden shed, Heat has grown and evolved hugely over the years. But, in spite of this significant evolution, we have managed to retain our values as we have scaled, and it is the retention of this core shared mission that has made Heat the business it is today.

Who We Work With

We’re immensely proud of the lasting partnerships we have built by assisting clients in their recruitment search. View some of our clients below.

Our Strategic Pillars

Our pillars are at the heart of everything we do at Heat, and they have an impact on the whole business. The pillars were devised through internal discussions around where we want to be as a business, defining not just what we want our successes to be, but how we want to be successful. This discussion allowed everyone in the business to define how we wanted to set ourselves apart and make a difference within our industry.

These were then refined in order to ensure that what we are aiming to achieve and our ambitions as a business were in line with our core beliefs and values. Now, the pillars serve as a reminder of what we want to stand for and they keep us rounded, so that everyone can keep what our intentions as a business are in sight. Keeping these pillars evenly balanced is the key to achieving this.

Our REC Membership

In providing our range of recruitment services to clients, our membership of The Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) provides you with a trusted badge of service quality and value. To be accepted as REC members, our company was required to undergo over twenty quality reference checks across our operations with both clients and candidates and required us to commit to the REC’s strict code of professional practice.

As an REC member, we are also required to complete a regular member compliance assessment which enables us to demonstrate that not only do we understand our legal and regulatory obligations, but also that we are working to best practice recruitment standards,

Being accepted as an REC member means that our clients can be assured that they are partnering with a professional recruitment firm that has a true understanding of their market sector, is committed to best practice compliance and quality standards, and is supported by an international trade body with best in class legal, compliance, training and market intelligence resources.

Our clients can also reap the benefit of our REC membership through specific client events and advice focused on issues such as IR35 legislation; managing risk through the recruitment supply chain and becoming a disability-confident employer.
