Integrity and professionalism are at the core of everything we do. Whether you’re our client or candidate, we want to show you how recruiting or securing a new job can be inspiring, enjoyable and fulfilling.

Our relationship started when we found ourselves working on a job share together. It was apparent early on that we made a great team and shared the same values and professional outlook. Having worked many years in recruitment we were both extremely ambitious and wanted to create a brand of our own which led us to launch RyderSlade.

Our vision was to work fully in partnership to support businesses achieve their goals, and candidates realise their professional aspirations.

As we go into our 5th year we are pleased to say we have a growing network of loyal clients and a reputation for honesty, perseverance and exceptional service.
