About Authentic Recruitment
Experience Quality

Quality In Everything We Do.

To produce something of quality doesn't just happen by chance, it takes a lot of hard work. As an Employment Service we've made a deliberate commitment to providing the highest possible standard Recruitment Solutions, then created systems and policies within every aspect of our organisation to achieve them.

Our Core Values

As a business we operate, without exception, from three core values. This ensures quality service and authentic business dealings with all the individuals we work with.


You deserve the best. We will never place a candidate in employment who we wouldn’t readily employ ourselves. Our success is based on the success of our clients; we only place people who will increase the quality of the businesses we work with.


We aim to keep the ‘consultancy’ in recruitment consultancy which is why we are committed to offering advice that puts those we work with first. Candidates can rely on us to launch them in the right direction based on their needs and not ours.


As a business our value is based upon the strength of the service we offer. We will not jeopardise our long term relationships by cutting corners or misleading customers for short term gains. The business community has a long memory.

How We Work

Multi-Sector Approach

Authentic Recruitment provides employment solutions across multiple IT & Commercial sectors, resulting with us having strong relationships with an extensive list of professional bodies to ensure we have a deep understanding of the latest market trends & industry insights.
Due to our multi-sector approach, we are able to offer clients the opportunity to be their exclusive recruitment partner across
all business functions, providing them with an efficient approach to the recruitment process.

Our Story

We are ΛUTHΞNTIC. Founded in 2012, we have been growing and shaping teams in the north of England through our growing talent network.

Our obsession is the marketing, digital, software, creative and technology industries. If that's you, and you want to grow your team, we would like to hear from you.

In 2017, as a natural progression and step forward in growth for Authentic Recruitment, the company was acquired by the Diverse Employment group. Founded in 2010, Diverse Employment was the vision of Lindsay Macpherson, Managing Director. Diverse Employment provides predominately temporary recruitment solutions across multiple industry sectors and have two offices in Scunthorpe and Hull. The acquisition strengthened the recruitment services offered and number of sector specialisms presented as a group, whilst has provided an opportunity to see Authentic Recruitment grow its own offerings whilst retaining its identity and core values.

Lindsay set out in 2010 to create a very different approach to recruitment agency services, and so the whole group adheres to strict values set out by Lindsay - focusing on the needs and requirements of the employee, and to maintain at all times the highest possible level of service to our clients; the employers.
