Making recruitment sustainable since 1995

Leading recruitment company Service Care Solutions is celebrating success after reaching its 15th anniversary.

The agency, based in Starkie Street in Preston, has seen significant growth in recent years and celebrated by throwing a party for its 100 staff at its recently-refurbished offices.

Managing director Richard Freye comments, “This milestone is a significant one in our vision of long term sustainability. 15 years ago, in my back bedroom in SE London, I would never have imagined that we would be such a dynamic, established and family-focused team. Growing to over 100 employees, promoting fairness and equality, seeing how every person is supported and seeing our bright future is an incredible feeling.

"Not only am I proud of who we are, but I am proud of how we got here and the next steps we are taking. We wouldn’t be where we are, with the future we have, without our strong and capable management team and diverse Board, all of whom I am very grateful to.

"I look forward to our future; the words of our Investors in People assessment officer ring true in my mind: ‘Service Care Solutions has moved from a large small company to a small large company’. What a great accolade.”

Freye started the company in 2005 from home, with two phones and a desire to provide a great service to both clients and candidates. Fast-forward fifteen years and the company’s success is plain to see.

Sustainability is one of the company’s official values; not just in an environmentally ‘green’ sense, but as a current and future employer to many and as a financially independent and profitable business.

Service Care Solutions specialises in recruiting across eight divisions, (Healthcare, Mental Health, Social Housing, Construction, Legal, Probation, Criminal Justice and Social Work). It employs over eighty-five consultants, all experts in their industry, as well as specialist compliance, finance and HR teams. The Preston-based company operates nationwide for a number of private clients, local authorities and NHS Trusts.
