Information is key. We have an enormous database of amazing candidates all skilled and motivated in their field of FM. For each candidate, we have incredibly detailed CVs which breakdown their experience, qualifications and job history.

The sheer depth of this information plus our regular contact with our candidates means that no-one knows more about the job seekers on their books than we do.

From you, we get as much information about your organisation and the role you’re looking to fill as possible. From that, we build up a profile of the candidates we need to introduce you to. Our system’s ability to match candidate with job responsibilities is unsurpassed.



Getting the right person in your role is down to our application.

Everything we do to find and place the perfect candidate has been proven time and time again. We work with hundreds of clients, including Prudential, Facebook, University College London, Mitie, London Stock Exchange, Kings College London, Henderson Global Investors, CBRE, Broadgate Estates, Capita, Wembley, All England Tennis Club, Gilead, UKTV, TaTa Steel, Royal Ballet School, Pepsico, MTV, and British Airways.

We employ professional copy writers to compose a compelling job advertisement and job description. This really sells you, your company and the role on offer. Moving jobs is stressful for any candidate. Most candidates tell us they would only move for something really special. What our job advertisement and job description do is show just how special the opportunity with you is.

Our team of consultants liases with you and your potential future employees throughout the entire process. We’re there to help you find an initial shortlist, arrange interviews, choose which candidates to take to the next stage and, finally, who to employ and how is best to onboard them.

Throughout the whole process, you’ll be highly impressed with the dedication and commitment of the team at Maxwell Stephens. You can read more about the team at Maxwell Stephens here.
