About Us

Lost & Found is a leading recruitment agency with a difference. We widely acknowledge we are only as good as our candidates and consultants and therefore we strive to only recruit the very best through stringent interviewing and matching techniques. Our philosophy therefore means we may not be the biggest agency out there, but more importantly we strive to be the best!

Our Approach

Lost & Found Recruitment specialises in the provision of staff to a number of industries including Education, Health and Social Care, Commercial Finance and Industrial throughout the Midlands.

Our approach is simple: to listen and understand our client and candidate needs and meet their expectations each and every time.

Our track record of delivering effectively against clients’ service level expectations is a direct result of our insight, attention to detail and our desire to achieve effective results.

We provide a consistent high quality service based on professionalism, honesty and integrity.

Specialist Knowledge and Insight

Our team have vital sector specific knowledge and insight that gives us a key strength in selecting suitable candidates with the relevant skills for teaching assignments. This invaluable first-hand experience and insight gives both our candidates and schools the reassurance of dealing with a company that fully understands their industry and requirements and is able to provide expert advice and high quality recruitment solutions.

Client Approach

Lost & Found offers a personalised recruitment service and we make it our job to gain a clear understanding of staff requirements through actively listening to their needs and aspirations and building a solid working relationship through consistent dialogue and communication on an on-going basis.

We aim to develop long-term relationships with clients built on consistency of service and an in-depth understanding of their business, culture and ultimately goals. Once a candidate is placed by us we still maintain on-going contact and strive to look after them. Our existing long-term relationships with many of the schools we work with demonstrate that our approach is successful and our services valued.

We actively and continuously seek feedback and regularly carry out Client and Candidate Satisfaction Surveys. We are always keen to implement suggestions and further improve our services.
