Good morning Jackie,

Happy New Year .

We have used Rural Recruitment a number of times and each time we have found them to be professional, friendly and helpful. They spent time understanding our business and values, to ensure they found the right candidate for us. I would highly recommend them to others.

I had difficulty recruiting for two different posts until I tried Rural Recruitment who provided a very friendly professional service. Most importantly they put forward very suitable and well qualified candidates. They filled both posts for me and I am very pleased with both the staff that they found for me.

Hi Jackie,
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your help with my new role in Essex.
I’m really enjoying my new part time gardening life while still being able to pursue my other botanical passions..
Many thanks Jackie
Best wishes

I have used Rural Recruitment for four positions in the last few months and I have always found Jackie to be pleasant, helpful and sensitive to our needs.  Rural Recruitment has found an impressive list of candidates for our posts.


Mr & Mrs T – Bures, Suffolk

“We had not used Rural Recruitment previously but they came recommended by a friend in the same line of work as us (Insurance and Financial Services). We were really impressed at how quickly Georgie and Jackie got to work and lined up interviewees for us to meet. Communication was great throughout and within a month of placing the advert we had a new employee in post who had exactly the skills and experience we were looking for”.

J B – NFU – Norfolk

I first came across Jackie at Rural Recruitment when I was searching the internet for a suitable job description to plagiarise for an ad I was going to place myself.  I subsequently spoke to Jackie and, how glad am I that I picked up the phone.  After just a few moments talking to Jackie she had picked up my requirements and probably, with hindsight, knew the sort of person I wanted better than I.  I placed the job with her and in no time she had sent a couple of candidates through to me.  Within a week or so, having discussed the candidates on the phone between ourselves we had a shortlist and two were invited for interview.  The second was engaged and has now been working successfully for six weeks; I am very pleased.  Jackie knew my requirements, and most importantly satisfied them, in a pleasant and efficient manner.  I would have no hesitation in using her services again.

I recently contacted Rural Recruitment to apply for a job I had seen advertised , however this position had been filled. Jackie took the time to contact me and discuss in details what I was looking for.

A day later Jackie contacted me again with a position she thought would be perfect and contacted the employer to discuss my cv.

Tow days later I had an interview. I was offered the position.

Rural Recruitment take the time to help you through every step and check in throughout your employment. I would highly recommend.

Rural Recruitment really came to our rescue on sourcing a Head Gardener, after a long search, negotiating Covid rules, storms to arrange an interview and helping us finalise the position’s fine details up until Christmas Eve.  We were very impressed by their conscientious manner in all our dealings.

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.

Kind regards,

Dear Jackie
When my Father’s much adored, long standing, completely unsurpassable Carer/companion returned to Poland, we really feared for our very vulnerable, blind, elderly father’s future care. We didn’t want a rota of agency carers passing through and so turned to you. You introduced us, as if by divine providence, to the most outstanding, kind, thoughtful, vigilant and utterly professional couple. We cannot thank you enough for this extraordinary pair, who are both joyful and compassionate. It is honestly the greatest relief to know he is so secure and happy. And too, that communication between us all is solid, easygoing, transparent and confidence giving to my Father and the whole family. You performed a miracle!
Warmest wishes and thanks,
Katharine – Suffolk

“Jackie and Rebecca are magicians!  We were in a very difficult spot needing a full time housekeeper on very short notice after our long term housekeeper needed to move home.  The team not only found us local housekeeper in 30 days but someone who exceeded all our expectations including having a back ground in childcare.  I’d highly recommend Jackie and Rebecca to anyone!”
Thank you again!
Mr.W – Bedfordshire

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.

Mrs. B – Chelmsford, Essex

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.

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.

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!

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.

Alison & David

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.

Chloe W

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.

Debbie T

“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.”

Mrs BM- Suffolk

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.

Jamie Osborne Racing- Berkshire

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.
