Virtue Recruitment Services Ltd was formed in 2015 by its current owners Stuart Craig and Jody MacMillan, who were determined to break away from the traditional image of an “agency provider”. Both, have a combined 30 year history within logistics specialising in the haulage and warehousing sectors, our core business.

Stuart, Jody and our consultants know their chosen discipline inside out and we pride ourselves in the sectors we serve, which is why we are renowned for our ability to source the scarcest skill sets and most motivated candidate.

Our core values are at the heart of everything we do, as is our mission statement. “To strive for excellence and to be renowned for the quality of our service, our professionalism and efficiency”.

Our philosophy is to respect the rights of each individual whether that is a potential candidate, our employees, our workforce, our clients or our suppliers. We work alongside several government agencies, assisting with back to work programmes for the long term unemployed and ex-forces personnel and as such have amassed a large register of clients in variety of diverse sectors, from industrial cleaning to production facilities to financial institutions.

We firmly believe in our “product”. Motivated, talented people.

We are committed to the continuous improvement of our services by maintaining an atmosphere that encourages creativity, interactive participation and self-improvement. We recognise that the priceless ingredient in providing excellent service is the direct involvement and commitment from each and every individual, from the newest recruit to the owners.
