Our History

Allstaff Employment was opened in December of 1986. Our offices were based in Chelmsford with a candidate feeder office at the bus station and a main office in the high street. Within two years we had taken over the top two floors of the high street building, giving us enough space to grow as recruitment consultants.

We launched as a generalist agency providing staff with both temporary and permanent roles within the legal, accountancy and hospitality sectors. We were fortunate enough to secure business within the local council and Essex County Council along with NHS Trusts in Essex.

Although initially, our intention was to market ourselves as an Essex provider, it became very clear early on that we could be equally as useful providing clients in Suffolk, Hertfordshire and Kent, with temporary and permanent staffing solutions.

Company Goals

Our ethos has always remained the same; straightforward recruitment with no hidden costs; a clear and transparent fee with easy to understand terms of business; personal candidate interviews before agreeing to help an individual and a no quibble fee rebate facility should the placement not work out.

Our consultants have always undergone a rigorous in house company training program however this has been enhanced in recent years with the introduction of offsite London based training programmes for all new and existing team members and the opportunity to study for NVQ qualifications in recruitment practice.

The Best in Chef Recruitment Agencies

Since 2012, we have been very proud sponsors of the Essex Life Food & Drinks Awards. This has been particularly gratifying for us as our Sales Director and two of his team have previously worked at a senior level within the catering & hospitality industry. They know only too well what goes into making the catering sector in Essex such a success.

In 2019, we were very proud to have been successful in securing membership to the REC having undergone their vigorous auditing process. For us, this validates our continued efforts in striving to consistently provide the most professional and transparent recruitment service for our clients.
