Paul's Story:

Our History

“As a then 11-year veteran of the UKs largest accountancy recruitment agency, we first set up shop in the heart of Leicester’s historic New Walk – our home since 1989.

Our first hire – my then 5-year old daughter Charlotte – helped paint the first office. Furnished with a phone, an Amstrad and a business plan, we quickly established a sterling reputation as the specialists in financial recruitment for Leicestershire.

Within a few years, Paul Mitchell Associates signature brand of recruitment was lauded by clients and candidates alike, setting the benchmark for ethical recruitment that was – and still remains – elusive to more conventional agencies.

As the business grew, so too did our reach, our team and the need for a bigger offices. Satisfied clients soon began asking for non-accountancy personnel, opening the door to new recruitment sectors.

Over time, many past candidates would return to Paul Mitchell Associates as clients – strengthening partnerships that span a lifetime.

Our Future

With a proud legacy of more than 10,000 successful appointments – placed with over 2,000 satisfied clients – we look to the future with a renewed spirit and vision.

One that revives and transforms public perception of the recruitment industry in a post-COVID-19 world and through action – not word – embodies the values and beliefs to which great agencies should aspire.

To inspire business minds to discover their place, people and potential – free from fear.

To become the life-long recruitment companion and comfort of clients, candidates and employees.

I’m Paul Mitchell and this is Your Agency For Life.”
