Telford-based recruitment agency, Prince, is marking a momentous occasion this year: two decades of successfully connecting talented individuals with leading companies across Shropshire and beyond. Since its inception in 2004, Prince has built a reputation for providing professional, quality candidates and exceptional service, earning the trust of both businesses and job seekers.

“It’s incredible to look back and see all we’ve achieved,” says founder Mike Prince. “From the beginning, our focus has been on building genuine relationships and understanding the unique needs of both clients and candidates. This approach has not only helped us thrive, but also fostered a loyal and dedicated team.”

This dedication to people-centric service is echoed by co-founder Maria Sandford. “We genuinely care about making a positive impact,” she explains. “That’s why we’re not just another recruitment agency. We go the extra mile to create meaningful connections and help people achieve their career goals.”

Prince’s commitment to excellence is exemplified by retaining their coveted Investors in People Gold accreditation, held since 2016. Recognised by Investors in People since 2005, their journey to Gold in 2016 and successful retention through three audits demonstrates their dedication to fostering a positive and supportive work environment that empowers employee development and growth.

“Our team is our greatest asset,” says Mike. “By investing in their well-being and professional development, we ensure they have the skills and resources needed to deliver exceptional service to our clients.”

Operating as anindependent boutique-style agency, Prince offers a personalised and cost-effective approach to recruitment. They specialise in commercial, operations, and accounts & finance sectors, collaborating with established UK companies and having corporate membership with REC, the UK’s leading recruitment industry body.

Their vision and values are not mere words but a driving force behind every interaction. “We strive to be the ‘people people,’” explains Maria. “This means honesty, transparency, and genuine care for those we work with, both internally and externally.”

With a combined 154 years of experience, Prince’s specialist consultants hold in-depth knowledge of the local job market. They excel at matching the right people with the right opportunities, delivering swift and effective matches that exceed expectations.

Mike concludes, “We’re proud of our journey and excited for the future. As we celebrate 20 years, we remain committed to connecting people and success, while upholding our values and fostering a thriving culture within our team.”
