About Us

Something Refreshing In Recruitment

Classic Consulting launched in January 2012, in the midst of recession and in a saturated market with over 140 direct competitors in the Sussex region.

Despite this, Classic Consulting has thrived, delivered industry-leading levels of client and candidate service and satisfaction, and won multiple awards recognising its achievements.

Classic Consulting was founded by a small team of highly-motivated and experienced recruitment professionals, with a vast amount of local and national experience. These consultants, who all have a stake in the business, were motivated to establish Classic Consulting because they decided that, between them, they could create something new and exciting in an industry that desperately needed it.

Integrity First

Our success to date is due entirely to an innovative client and candidatecentric approach, combined with the expertise, experience and excellence of all our consultants.

We are keen supporters of the Institute of Business Ethics, which was established to encourage a strong ethics culture and high standards of business behaviour based on ethical values. Rather than our regular board meetings being profit-focused, they centre on levels of repeat business and client and candidate development and retention.

Long Term Commitment

Also key to the success of Classic Consulting was the ability to obtain private equity backing, where the focus would not be on short term profitability, but the building of long term client and candidate service over a sustained period.

Classic Consulting is backed by the specialist recruitment private equity firm, Krypton Capital. This has meant that the business model for Classic Consulting has been subject to extensive due diligence, and subsequent approval from industry experts who were themselves convinced of the potential success of the company and its ability to offer clients and candidates something new and different.

With clients that range from international corporates to niche player SMEs, success for Classic Consulting has come through an innovative, yet highly effective, combination of old and new. Traditional standards of outstanding client service have met with state-of-the-art recruitment technology and methodologies.

The success and independent recognition of Classic Consulting, however, is testament to the fact that the company has more than succeeded in creating something that is the antithesis of the industry norm.

Ultimately, we have very ambitious aspirations and pride ourselves on not just our tailored recruitment methodologies, but our added value services, such as providing HR and employment law advice and recruitment trend reports, amongst other services.

Our long-term commitment is to become an unrivalled and key recruitment partner to the local community.
