Why One Step Recruitment?

We have operated in Somerset for over 20 years, so our local knowledge in this county’s diverse business community is unrivalled. One Step Recruitment is award-winning and independently owned. We are an agile business, flexible with our services, tailoring them to suit your requirements – examples include personality profiling, selection days and joint initiatives in the community.

Temporary staff payroll

If you choose One Step Recruitment to supply temporary workers, you can leave the payroll to us – this includes NI, tax, pension, holiday pay and sick pay – all carried out in-house and never outsourced.

Our role types

One Step Recruitment supplies a range of staff to fill permanent and temporary vacancies across all levels from key senior management, to managed teams, to cover for a day of sickness (same day if needed).  The types of roles we recruit for fall in to the following categories:


For example: factory, production, packing and warehouse work, cleaning and driving


For example: customer service, administration, sales, marketing, secretarial and accounts


Skilled roles such as engineering, technical support and IT

Senior Appointments

Professional roles such as Finance Director, Solicitor and Senior Management

Hospitality & Events

Customer facing roles such as bar and waiting, kitchen roles from porter to Head Chef and Restaurant/General Managers

Care Work

Day, night and live-in care work, in residential and private homes

Our applicants

A CV can only give you so much information. We don’t feel we can represent a candidate without first having met with them. Everyone who applies for work is interviewed by consultants in their own field of expertise, who can also carry out numeracy and literacy testing as well as more focused tests such as data entry, food hygiene, customer service and proficiency in Microsoft Office. Results are available for review by employers.

Our consultants

Your needs will be met by an experienced recruitment consultant who works within your industry and can advise on, if needed, matters such as skill bases and salary. To ensure our team is at the top of their game, we like them to be REC qualified by exam (Recruitment and Employment Confederation) – not all agencies are the same.

The recruitment process

One Step Recruitment uses the most advanced software available in the recruitment industry. When a role is received we search our significant database to compile a shortlist of the most suitable applicants for the job. On top of this huge resource, we use CV libraries and market leading job boards to widen our search and approach those who have not already registered with us to come in and apply, as well as advertising the role to attract new candidates.

24 hour availability

You don’t stop at 1730, so neither do we. If our offices are closed, your call doesn’t sit on an answerphone until the next working day, it will go to the on-call consultant with a remote desktop. This means we can take a booking or fill roles in times of sickness, alleviating the stress during working hours. This is also an important factor for applicants, as it can be hard to talk during office hours if they are already in employment.

So what happens now?

Just as we at One Step Recruitment meet all our candidates, we like to meet all our clients too – to discuss the role with you and get a feel for your business and culture. But that doesn’t mean we can’t get started right away. Upload your vacancy online at any time and we will contact you at your convenience.
