Sharp & Carter aims to provide generosity to our staff with care, trust and progression in developing their career. The way we go about recruitment makes all the difference and makes us a breath of fresh air in our industry. Recruitment Consultants at Sharp & Carter are the intermediary between organisations wishing to recruit (the client) and the individual seeking a career move (the candidate). We work together with organisations to build strong relationships in order to gain a better understanding of their recruitment needs, requirements and ultimately help people make their next correct career choice.

Our culture at Sharp & Carter is second to none. The mission of our culture is to ensure we provide an industry-leading work-life balance to our staff. It is about creating and maintaining a supportive and healthy work environment, which will enable us to have a balance between work and personal responsibilities and thus strengthen employee loyalty and productivity.
