Reasons to use us...


Recruitment is about people, so choosing to partner with a recruitment company offers personal interaction rather than interfacing with faceless job advertising online. At Dovetail, we are proud recruitment professionals, but we are extremely friendly, down to earth people who genuinely want to help you succeed. With 30 years of experience you will benefit from our large networks of candidates and resources unavailable through online portals.

“Dovetail has consistently kept me in the loop the whole time and have been very supportive through the entire recruitment process”


Your business is unique and we understand that your recruitment needs will be different to others.. Being an independent agency, we can customise every element of the recruitment process to suit your specific needs, whether it be providing the full recruitment life cycle or a more narrow requirement of market insights, benchmarking, job advertising, interviewing or resourcing, we will provide you a customised quote to suit you.

“We are a niche business with very specific requirements. Dovetail have worked hard to understand our requirements and successfully provided us with quality people to drive out business forward”


You will be safe in the knowledge that we commit to providing you with the highest level of customer service. Whether you are a job seeker looking for a new opportunity, a manager in an organisation looking to recruit or a professional contractor seeking a new project, you are our priority at every stage. The relationships we build with you contribute to the success of your career and reputation which is why we strive to support everyone at every stage of the process.

“My experiences with Dovetail, have been nothing but positive and have been so for over 5 years now. I think it speaks volumes to be comfortable enough to remain with an organisation for such a long period of time. They have always managed to find me varied and interesting projects over the years, and long may it continue”


You will benefit from years of industry experience when partnering with us. With a genuine interest in your business we will confidently assign you a personal account manager who will commit to designing a recruitment solution for you and work with you collaboratively at every stage.

“I found Dovetail to be efficient, knowledgeable and supportive in the successful search for my next challenge. They have the rare ability to match candidates to clients, especially in terms of culture fit. The role that they successfully introduced me to was not necessarily an obvious choice for myself or the hiring company, so huge credit to them for spotting the perfect match”
