Synergy, the Specialist Recruitment Company

Synergy Personnel Services is an East Midlands based specialist Recruitment Company. We have specialist consultants who operate within the Construction, Industrial, Commercial, Legal, Education and IT sectors.

Our Values

In August 2021, we challenged the team to define the values of the company. We had talked for some time about creating a clear set of principles that we should strive to uphold every day and that would underpin every decision we make.

See what we discovered…

Our Strategy

Synergy Personnel Services boast a placement success of 81% of candidates after just one interview. The delivery of this can only be achieved through the implementation of a robust process to ensure we correctly match and refer the right candidates to the right jobs:

Each role is run through a rigorous 16-point recruitment process.

Our candidates benefit from a full skills and experience analysis and will only be presented to a client if they fulfil all of the key job criteria.

We work closely with candidates in order to understand their short-term aspirations as well as their long-term goals and only match them to roles that fulfil these.

We work closely with our clients to understand their ideal candidate for any given role; to gain detailed insight into the required experience, skills, qualifications and what it will take to seamlessly fit in with the ethos of their business.

We do not work to rigid KPIs but are flexible and dynamic in our approach, thinking and acting laterally and always seeking cost-effective solutions for our clients.

Our greatest testimonial is that we are now working with clients who were once our candidates.

These are all individuals who experienced the Synergy recruitment experience and recognised its value, and now their careers have flourished they have returned to us for their recruitment needs.

Our Vision

For most organisations, recruitment is a problematic, time-consuming and expensive activity that they have neither the skills nor resources to undertake. 

For individuals seeking jobs, the journey can be lonely, arduous and often without clear direction. So let Synergy do the work for you.

Our small, highly trained team offers a friendly, bespoke service, heaped in expertise, working across a host of large vocational sectors. 

Our vision is simple, bold and centred around successful candidate placements and client retention because, put simply, we want to be…

The last recruitment company you’ll ever need to work with.


Our clients are the best! Here's what they had to say:

I highly recommend Gavin Dilkes to source the right people for your vacancies. He works hard to make sure that he achieves the best match for your business. You can trust Gavin to nail your brief and provide you with a good fit for your company due to his attention to detail and integrity. I’ve worked with Gavin recently and enjoyed his professionalism, organisation, and thorough communication.

Business Development Manager

Following a very unfortunate situation with a previous employer, I contacted Laura Naylor. Not only was she sympathetic to my situation, she jumped straight into finding me a new employment opportunity. Within 3 hours I had an interview at a company local to me, offered me everything I needed. Within a week I had secured a position and Laura was so supportive, calling and email as well as visiting me at my new job after I had started. I would certainly recommend Laura to get the job done , and done fast with perfection!!!

Tom' s approach made me comfortable for the whole process. There was no hard selling or pushing, and always plain language and genuine communication. Nowadays it is difficult to make it right between too proactive or too laidback but I think Tom had kept a fine balance, at least to myself. Well done and keep it up!
