Our story

Established in 1987 Johnston Vere was formed to break the stereotype of the recruitment industry with a focus on long-term relationships with candidates and clients and to be faithful to the premise that the company was there for the long haul.

We fill the gap between clients and candidates where there was historically a lack of understanding of customers’ markets, technology or skill sets required to do a job.

Key concerns for decision makers within a company are efficiency and profit; in order for these to thrive, we look after our clients’ best interests by understanding their business and industry. Without knowledge of market sectors, competitors, news and business strategy specific for a client, how could recruiters effectively place people who can add intrinsic value?

The objective of Johnston Vere is the same today as then, to maximize both the candidate’s potential and client’s performance. In order to accomplish this, our Consultants take a multifaceted role in understanding the needs of the client’s business and the candidate’s soft skills. In appreciating the needs of both parties Johnston Vere speaks to them at an equal level.

We take the time to consider the internal workings and strategy of a client’s business on an individual basis. This covers roles within a company, the working environment and strategy for our client’s performance and goals for the future.

We have proven ourselves to provide recruitment value to an organisation, our considered and consistent approach has enabled the consultancy to withstand various economic climates. We focus on quality value over quantity and niche industry expertise has provided our consultants with the knowledge to place the right candidates in the right companies.

Today Johnston Vere follows the legacy of the lifecycle ethos; many of our candidates have since become clients. By investing, developing and maintaining relationships we have created a cyclical structure so if our clients move they know to utilize our resources again.
