About Us

The Work Shop was established in June 2001 by two recruitment veterans, Shelley Alger and Phil Harmsworth, who wanted to offer more personal and contemporary services to employers and candidates throughout the area. With branches located in Ringwood and Romsey to serve the counties of Dorset, Hampshire, and Wiltshire, we are ideally placed to offer access to a wide range of candidates and companies.

At The Work Shop, we pride ourselves on being more than just recruiters – we’re your partners in success. Our commitment to kindness, honesty, and integrity defines everything we do. We operate with a versatile approach, excelling in various industries across the job market.

Unlike many other agencies, we don’t succumb to unrealistic targets set by a “Head Office.” As a small, independent agency, we understand that industry-wide targets, such as bombarding clients with 50 CVs a day or making 100 sales calls, often contribute to a negative reputation our industry can acquire.

About Us

Rather than fostering a target-driven culture, we believe in cultivating a team of dedicated professionals who are passionate about doing the job right and prioritise quality over quantity. Our consultants go above and beyond to understand each recruitment needs. It’s not just about skills and experience; it’s about grasping the personality that fits seamlessly into a team. We value our clients’ time, our candidates’ time, and, of course, our own. By investing the effort upfront, we eliminate the risk of wasted resources. Your time is precious, and we respect that.

What’s more, our services come with a unique promise: they’re free if we don’t deliver. So, what does a company have to lose by giving us a try and experiencing the “difference” firsthand? For candidates seeking a new career, our services come at no cost at all. Reach out to us and let us demonstrate how exceptional our industry can truly be.
