about Just Recruitment

First, and foremost Just Recruitment is a family. A family of clients, candidates and employees.

Founded by Jenny Wrightson in 1983, it began life as a family business that was passionate about recruitment. It grew quickly; Jenny’s entrepreneurial spirit took a bedroom project to being a multi-branch recruitment agency. An agency serving clients and candidates across Essex and Suffolk. Though, what made it different was its integrity; a commitment to treating every person as a human being.

We have always been firmly rooted in our local community...  

Just’s business has always been divided between placing people in permanent employment and finding work for temporary workers. That remains true today. Last year over 650 individuals found their next career position through Just and over 3,000 temporary workers were paid through our payroll.

So we find people work. That’s good, but it’s not what we are.

We started life in an office in the market square in Braintree, Essex. Why Braintree? Because that is where Jenny was brought up and lived. A local girl with local ambition. We have always been firmly rooted in our local community.

The business prospered and branches opened in Witham, Colchester, Sudbury, Ipswich and Haverhill. Throughout the expansion, we were committed to developing roots. Roots and relationships; with clients, candidates, employees and the community.

We understand that when a client outsources its recruitment needs to us, it is outsourcing part of its brand. We treasure that brand as much as our client does. Not just because it makes commercial sense, but because we know that our brand is also on the line. Thirty-five years of reputation is not a thing to be treated lightly.

We understand. We respond.

We appreciate that when a candidate comes to us they are looking for professional help. They might be discreetly exploring a career move. They could be desperate for money because they have been made redundant. Or anything in between. Life’s pageant passes through our doors every day. In every case, we take time to listen, to ask, to listen again and then to advise.

Life’s pageant passes through our doors every day. In every case we take time to listen, to ask, to listen again and then to advise.  

We appreciate. We engage.

We know that temporary work is a major part of the 21st-century economy. That folk look for temporary work as a work style choice or out of necessity. Regardless of motivation, we treat every Temporary worker as we would an employee. They are paid PAYE, they receive holiday pay, they receive sick pay and they become eligible for Just Extra™. Just is, we believe, the only temporary recruitment agency in the area to provide a voluntary benefits scheme for temporary workers.

We know. We care.

We rejoice in the fact that after thirty-five years we have planted roots in our community. We are here and we belong here. We work with local schools to advise pupils and staff about the job market and how to approach it. We raise money and give support to local charities, not because it’s good PR but because it’s good. We don’t tick a CSR box, we have CSR in our core.

We rejoice. We share.

In December 2017 we changed our ownership. We went from being a family-owned company to an Employee Owned Trust (EOT). There’s lots of fancy legalise that surrounds that transition but the essence is; we stopped being family-owned and became a family. The bottom line is; on a day-to-day basis, nothing changed.

At heart, though, we are a professional recruitment agency. Skilled at the matchmaking of candidate with job and job with candidate. Committed to understanding our clients’ recruitment plans and ensuring they are met.

We are Just Recruitment. You ought to talk with us.
