About Us

Our business is about people ... it’s about getting the right balance of personalities, capabilities and characters that makes Metzger a great company to work with … always professional, approachable and endeavoring to keep a sense of humour ... where appropriate of course. When the people mix is right, so is everything else, whether you are a client, candidate or part of the team.

The business was launched back in 1994 when the two James’s decided to join forces to establish a specialist recruitment consultancy within easy access to London and airports ... a sound decision since the business now manages international assignments as well as throughout the UK.

Metzger is still a privately owned organisation, whose business has grown and prospered around the belief that pursuing long term close relationships with clients and candidates, based on mutual respect and trust, is the key to creating real value for all parties. We now offer much more than recruitment, having extended our business services to include highly successful divisions in Interim Management, Business Acquisitions and Human Resources support services, as well as other partnership ventures with complementary businesses.

Metzger provides creative and practical talent management and human resource solutions to the business & support services and property & infrastructure sectors, working with both leading organisations and ambitious small businesses. We work closely with our clients to identify their specific requirements and then create a well-defined, pragmatic solution that is fully tailored to both the organisational and cultural context of the assignment ... the same approach whether your need is the attraction, assessment or development of people.

We adopt an entrepreneurial and flat management structure that ensures excellent communication and top-level support from every member of the team. Without hierarchy, pomp and ceremony, we just get on with the task, working as a team and ensuring that Metzger is the place where we all want to be.

Their work is discreet, thorough and well researched and the specilaists who have dealt with my requirements are people in whom I feel confident and who I trust to deliver the right solutions.
