More than just a recruitment agency

Combining over 50 years of experience in the recruitment sector, Extension Recruitment was founded in 2011 in Gateshead, Newcastle Upon Tyne. The company has since expanded as demand for our reputation of delivering results has grown. United by their passion for finding the right people for the right roles, Extension Recruitment was founded on the idea of taking a proactive approach as standard, resulting in a high level of service for all clients across a range of sectors including Engineering, IT, Finance and HR.

Diversity & Inclusion

“…we all deserve the opportunity to develop our skills and talents to our full potential, work in a safe, supportive and inclusive environment, be fairly rewarded and recognised for our work and have a meaningful voice on matters that affect us.” 11

We are passionate about promoting diversity and inclusion to all of our clients across all business sectors and job roles. In an ever changing world where diversity and inclusion is at the forefront of many people’s minds, it is still being highlighted as a huge issue within the workplace with few businesses truly implementing tangible changes in order to accommodate all employees inclusively regardless of background, identity or circumstance.

We strongly believe that skills can be learnt, but attitude and personality cannot. It is vital that businesses have a diverse workforce to ensure that there is a range of perspectives in decision making and the workforce is representative of their customers.

Our promise is to treat all candidates as unique individuals who deserve to gain a role based not only on their education and skill set but also on their personality, passions and desires for the future.
