About Us

Asset 1

Tamesides Multi-Award winning professional service provider and the North West trusted people partner.

We believe we are constantly growing, both in knowledge and expertise. We are constantly innovating and evolving to adapt to the local economy to help our local people and business succeed.

Our Mission is to be the agency of choice for local people, matched to local work.

Bennett Staff is an independently owned and managed recruitment business founded originally in 1958 as Bennett Secretarial Services, which is based on decades of experience of our late founder Mr. Roy Bennett.

Our operation is currently owned and run by our Managing Director Claire Wolstenholme and Operations Director Robbie Harrison. Both Directors started as apprentices in the 90’s and several existing staff not long after.

We have been changing lives in the Tameside area for over 66 years, living our mission of "local people, matched to local work".

Located in Hyde and covering much of the North West Regions, we pride ourselves in delivering a temporary and permanent recruitment package which supports our customer needs.

Our reputation and position as market leader in staff recruitment service in: Commercial - All Office, Industrial & Distribution, Catering and Hospitality

We always operate good business ethics and fully support equality and diversity as a key aspect of operational practices.

Our team thrive off each others passion for recruitment and are committed in understanding the needs of our clients and candidates. This shines through in our everyday duties.

We aspire to succeed, hit targets, and reach goals. We love the buzz and the challenge that every day is different, not knowing what job opportunities come in from one day to the next. Customer satisfaction is key to our business moving forward.

Finding the right talent to fill the roles is one of the other challenging aspects of the job. What makes us unique is how we go about it, to make it happen. We always strive to find the right candidate for the right job. One stop shop for all your recruitment needs.

We are an employment agency you can TRUST, who can add VALUE and have POSITIVITY in whatever we do. We also believe that building lasting relationships through transparency and collaboration is key to our success.

Bennett Staff acts as an employment agency for permanent staff and an employment business for temporary workers.
