Those very special candidates.....for those very special employers.

Last updated: 09/7/2020

Executive and Specialist Recruitment across East Anglia.

Unlike so many recruitment companies, Badger Associates does not retain hundreds (or in some cases thousands!) of CVs for years on end on the off chance that we get a match. To hold a candidates CV we have to believe that we have a real chance of finding them gainful employment. False hope dashed is a very destructive force when a person is looking for a new role. We understand that. For that reason alone we feature very few candidates in this section. but rest assured that the ones who are featured here have 'earned' that right. They have impressed us with their tenacity, determination to find a new role, willingness to 'go the extra mile' or they may just have a very unique skill set. Whatever it is they are worth a look and we commend them to you. If any of them are of interest to you - we are only a phone call away.
