We are delighted to recommend Rural Recruitment to help anyone looking for staff to help them out in a variety of roles. They are great at helping you define what it is you are looking for, and then finding the right person for that role, simplifying the process.
They narrowed the applicants down to a manageable field and organised suitable applicants, interviews and checks. They were also a delight to deal with throughout the whole process.
We have used Rural Recruitment over the last 10 years to find Grooms, Gardeners and Housekeepers. We have always had excellent service and found the right person.
Thank you so much Rural Recruitment for helping me find a nanny/housekeeper! Just moved to Suffolk and was quick to discover finding help incredibly stressful until this incredible agency stepped in! Super efficient and quick to find lots of different applicants all of who were really lovely and was lucky enough to find one who was perfect for our family!! Highly recommend and thanks again!
We really appreciated Jackie’s prompt and efficient service as well as genuine focus around long-term fit for the role. Matthew & Jennifer, North Essex
“Rural Recruitment have been very effective in filling our vacancies. The company always go the extra mile to really understand the clients requirements, and their candidate selection process is thorough ensuring we only interview the right people. Where Rural Recruitment really excel is their mandatory requirement for references prior to an offer being made, they really do try to safe guard the client from any issues, this is one of the reasons why I have such confidence in working with them”

We are so thrilled with Alice, she has been brilliant and given me so much more time back in my life. She is so good with my grandchildren and my 4 year old grand daughter just wants to be with her feeding chickens, on swings or especially with the new pony I have got!!!!
Nothing seems to much for her and she always has a smile on her face…such a joy.
Thank you for finding her for me.
We had such fun recruiting a variety of new staff through Rural Recruitment. Rebecca was a delight to deal with, leaving no stone unturned and always being available to talk over ideas and candidates. All our team felt in very good hands and that we could relax safe in the knowledge that the best job possible was being done. Rebecca was always looking out for us with her wealth of experience to make sure that we considered all aspects. We ended up with the dream team and avoided some potential pitfalls. We could not be happier with the result.
I stumbled across Rural Recruitment when asked to give a reference and from the moment I contacted Jackie to the successful placement of two candidates, I have been nothing but impressed. Their attention to detail and ability to listen and truly understand a given brief put them beyond most recruiters across many industries. I would not hesitate in using them again and have already recommended them elsewhere. The candidates presented were of excellent calibre and we are truly thrilled.
The Gardener/Groundsman Rural Recruitment found for us has turned out to be an excellent find. He has fitted in extremely well, is happy to turn his hand to anything and is a diligent worker.
I would highly recommend Rural Recruitment. A top class, friendly and professional service. We have been very lucky to have had a few positions filled by brilliant girls found by Jackie and Rebecca. I couldn’t be happier with the team we have here at Mountford Sport Horses and that’s all credit to them!
Rural Recruitment have been amazing in helping me find 3 perfect job roles. They are incredibly helpful and welcoming and would always be my first port of call if I were on the look out for a job. I can’t recommend them enough.
The service that I was provided was personal, professional and top class and I will defiantly be using them in the future. The continued support even after I’d been at my job for months to make sure I was happy was fabulous. Very approachable and easy to talk to and contact.
Fantastic service. Jackie found me a lovely local position, fitting exactly what I was looking for. And very quickly too. Many thanks again!
I am thoroughly enjoying my new job. It ticks all of the boxes and couldn’t be more perfect. Thank you for all your help and support. I would highly recommend your service.
Having tried the usual commercial channels of recruitment, we wanted a more bespoke approach and had been recommend to RR. They secured some excellent candidates quickly and we had placed the role within two weeks, with excellent communication throughout the process
Having used Rural Recruitment for the first time I have been extremely impressed with their response and approach to finding Flora an excellent yard/ competition groom.
From the outset they were incredibly professional and helpful and I would have no hesitation in recommending their services and will continue to use them as and when required.
Jackie is very proactive and helpful. When providing us with candidates she engages in a professional manner and is always on hand to respond quickly and efficiently to any queries we may have. Red Leaf Group very much enjoy working with Rural Recruitment and would have no hesitation in recommending their services.
“We have used Rural Recruitment to hire all our team members, all of whom are still with us today and we couldn’t be without. The standard of candidates they put forward to us is incredible, they have saved us so much time and are such a pleasure to work with, we couldn’t recommend more”.Kind regards,Alice

Rural Recruitment have been a significant asset to our business. Losing a member of staff can be a stressful time for a small business, Rural Recruitment take the stress out of the situation and take the time to get to know how we operate. Most importantly providing candidates that are not only good on paper but a great cultural fit.
We have worked with a number of staffing agencies over the last 20 years and none have been better to deal with than Jackie Frost of Rural Recruitment. Responsive and proactive, she only sent us candidates that met our brief and throughout the process she was accessible and always willing to go the extra mile. A total pleasure to deal with and thoroughly recommended.
A real step up in comparison to the usual agencies.
We found Rural Recruitment East Anglia at Houghton International Three day Event in 2016/17. As a digital first recruitment agent they have found a Shepherd and Housekeeping couple from Scotland and a Gardener from Wales for us. A first class service at a reasonable price
While looking for a job I turned to Rural Recruitment. I firstly dealt with Rebecca who was so unbelievably helpful, I was kept up to date with every process. Rebecca also helped amend my CV as it was quite out of date! It looks great now. During my search I also liaised with Jackie who again was extremely helpful and welcoming!
I was truly looked after with Rural Recruitment and I am now enjoying a lovely part time position doing exactly what I love thanks to them. I would very much recommend them to anyone!
Trying to find reliable, experienced and enthusiastic staff to join a busy household and family run business is always challenging – and this is where Jackie and Rebecca’s expertise, knowledge and professional approach has always been invaluable,
I can honestly recommend Rural Recruitment whole heartedly

When we first applied for a live in, Housekeeper /Gardener/Groundsman position advertised by Rural Recruitment East Anglia, we found Rebecca extremely helpful and informative, any queries we had were answered very quickly either by email or telephone.
We thought the whole process was handled in a smooth and professional manner.
We now feel settled in our new jobs and home, and look forward to a continuous and successful working relationship here in lovely Suffolk.
I contacted Rural Recruitment in the summer of 2018 enquiring about jobs in the equine industry. Rebecca was extremely helpful and was very efficient in sending me through a couple of local groom/rider positions that matched my requirements, she kept me regularly updated regarding interviews and feedback. I found Rural Recruitment very helpful and supportive even after I started work. As a result I am now working at a lovely, local point to point yard with a great team and thoroughly enjoy my job.
I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for employment.
Having used Rural Recruitment to find myself a new position I wanted to say how efficient and professional they were in finding me employment.
Rebecca contacted me within hours of applying for a post and followed this up with a face to face meeting to discuss my requirements and expectations and to let me know what was available in my area, how far or long I was prepared to travel etc.
The meeting was informal and pleasant and a good way to get to know each other. After arranging an interview with new prospective employers within a few days, I am now settled into my new job and have been working for my employer for almost a year.
This has been followed up with emails and phone calls to see how I felt things were progressing and to check I am still happy and settled.
I would thoroughly recommend using Rural Recruitment to anyone looking to find employment including friends and family. They really do go that extra country mile.
“Rural Recruitment have provided household and gardening staff for us over some years. Jackie and Rebecca are always very responsive, take a brief quickly and clearly, and have never failed to fulfil our requirements in a very timely fashion, so I am delighted and will continue to use them when the need arises.”
Jackie found an excellent professional competition groom for us to manage the Pony Trial ponies.
Diana stayed with us for 2.5 years and during this time the ponies won silver 2017 and gold 2018 European Eventing Pony Championships.
We were very pleased with all she did and her dedication and attention to details were greatly appreciated.
A very professional service that helped me find the right job that I love.
I have used their services twice now, and on both occasions I have found them to be honest, thorough and extremely helpful.
I would highly recommend RREA. When finding a new position, it is definitely just as important to Rebecca and Jackie as it is to you, and they really do look after you every step of the way.
