Welcome to Tree Top Recruitment

TreeTop Recruitment was established in 2007 with the sole objective of helping both companies find the right employees and candidates find the right position without getting lost in the forest in order to get there.

Too often companies receive hundreds of CV’s that are not suited to their current needs and TreeTop’s philosophy is to match exact needs with only the right and suitable candidates.

Job seekers are also often inundated with too many options and not enough knowledge on a company in order to make an informed choice. We provide guidelines and insight into a prospective company – matching the skills, experience and culture of a candidate to a job that will result in long term growth and reward.

Our objective is to keep it simple and hassle free. Our many years of experience provides prospective above the treeline so that the end goal is achieved in the most efficient way. Our experience gives us the ability to understand both candidates and companies allowing us to make a perfect match, creating a winning solution for everyone.
