Recruitment with a difference – Norfolk

Located in East Anglia, Norfolk is a largely rural area and one of the least densely populated counties in the UK. Its major towns are Norwich, Kings Lynn and Thetford. Bordered by Suffolk, and Cambridgeshire, Norfolk’s picturesque coastline and the Norfolk Broads attract many visitors so tourism plays a large part in the area’s economy, with many second home owners from London choosing Norfolk as their location of choice.

Norfolk has a vastly diverse economy which includes manufacturing, food processing and engineering, yet over the years we have found it can be one of the hardest areas in the East of England to recruit. With recent shifts in the demographic that makes up the workforce for more blue collar industries, and the trend for working from home opening up the London market for white collar professionals, this has only become tougher over the past year or two. If your business needs top-calibre people to ensure its continued success, please contact Cambridge Talent Partnership to hear how we can help you find them.


The recently improved A11 trunk road connects Norfolk to London and Cambridge. Norfolk is also close to the shipping ports of Felixstowe and Harwich, which have both passenger and cargo terminals. High speed train services run from Kings Lynn to London and Cambridge frequently, and it is now possible to reach London Liverpool Street from Norwich in just 90 minutes.

The Norwich Research Park (NRP) is one of Europe’s largest single-site concentrations of expertise in good health and environmental sciences. Ambitious plans are in place to expand activity which will no doubt result in many new opportunities across many disciplines.

We are a locally-based recruitment agency with a track record of sourcing candidates for those hard to fill roles that often become  the bane of a hiring manager’s or Recruitment Manager’s life. Our approach differs from any other agency you will have worked with before, and if we feel we cannot deliver, we will not take on the role – to do so is a waste of both your time and ours.
