BESPOKE Recruitment are celebrating their seven year anniversary in 2013 and it’s all change for New Year.

Bespoke were based at 1 Athol Street for six years however the lease came to an end in 2012 and Bespoke is now a fully-fledged online agency.

Managing director Jon Morley said: ‘The reason for this move is that the vast majority of candidates feel uncomfortable walking into a high street agency in case they are seen by a colleague, friend or employer. 

‘This new approach offers our candidates the opportunity to register at a private secure location of their choosing and will hopefully negate the chance of them feeling uncomfortable.

‘In addition to this candidates don’t need to worry about travelling to an agency, finding a park, registering and getting back to work all within a lunch hour.

‘The Bespoke Recruitment approach offers candidates the flexibility and privacy to register at any time no matter where they live/work on the island 24/7. All of our candidates are still interviewed face to face, and are fully vetted and reference checked by an experienced and qualified consultant.’

Mr Morley told Business News that the change was being well received by clients.  He said: ‘It means we are not handcuffed to Athol Street.’

He explained that Bespoke Recruitment dealt mainly with the financial services industry and customers often felt uncomfortable walking into the office in the heart of the island’s finance sector

Manxman Mr Morley runs the business with his wife, fellow director Cathy. He meets clients at pre-arranged venues and the change away from the office was proving to be a success.

‘Bespoke Recruitment is a full corporate member of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation so you can rest assured that we adhere to the highest levels of professionalism at all times’.

Bespoke has an executive division, general recruitment division and a temporary division.

Clients can register 24/7 at a time to suit them at or call Jon and the team on 611044.
