A new kind of recruitment agency

There are many negative clichés about recruitment consultancies. They’re often accused of treating candidates like commodities and “pushing square pegs into round holes” just to fill roles quickly. This couldn’t be further from the truth with Good Work Partners. We’re not just another recruitment agency. We’re on a mission to revolutionise the industry by prioritising socially responsible recruitment. Backed by Shaw Trust, a diverse charity with over 3,000 employees, we are determined to positively redress some of the negative associations of our industry.  We want to pioneer a new and ‘good’ approach to hiring talent and finding a genuinely ‘good’ employer.

Why Good Work Matters

Technology is changing the very nature of work, making the idea of “human resources” in many industries feel genuinely precarious. But despite this undeniable fact, people remain a critical part of any commercial organisation on the planet.

Work demands organisation and structure.  It thrives on the undefinable magic of good relationships. Something, in our view, AI will never replicate. Good relationships with customers drives business.  Good relationships amongst colleagues fosters a positive culture. Everyone prospers, physically and mentally, individually and collectively when we exist – and work – alongside others who share our values. 

“Good” companies attract the best people. Talent, loyalty and positivity add a different kind of “value”. A “goodness” that works both ways. A relationship built on mutual trust and dependency, shattering the old system of “master and servant” employment. This is not an idealist dream. It’s the founding belief of our recruitment consultancy. We partner with a growing range of “good clients” and with every successful placement make this vision of “good work” a reality.
