Grace Celebrates 25 Years of Recruitment Excellence

Grace, a leading recruitment agency based in Maidenhead, is marking a significant milestone as it celebrates 25 years of exceptional service in the industry. Founded in 1999 by Nicola Dandridge, Grace has consistently demonstrated a commitment to integrity, respect, and client satisfaction, setting itself apart as a beacon of excellence in the world of recruitment.

Since its inception, Grace has been guided by a simple yet powerful philosophy: prioritise people above all else. In an era dominated by fee-chasing competitors, Nicola Dandridge envisioned a recruitment agency that would prioritise the needs of both clients and candidates, setting a new standard for quality and mindfulness in the industry. This commitment to personalised service has remained unwavering throughout the company’s journey over the past quarter-century.

Under the leadership of Lauren Hopkins, who took the reins in 2016, Grace has continued to thrive and evolve. Embracing change and innovation, the agency has adapted to new technologies and shifting market dynamics while staying true to its core values.

In the face of unprecedented challenges such as the COVID-19 pandemic, Grace has demonstrated resilience and agility, transforming its operations to meet the needs of clients and candidates in a rapidly changing environment. From embracing remote work to enhancing employee benefits and expanding its geographical reach, the agency has remained steadfast in its commitment to delivering exceptional service.

Looking ahead, Grace is poised for continued growth and success. With ambitious plans to become a B Corp, establish corporate charity partnerships, and focus its reach into SME territory, the agency is well-positioned to shape the future of recruitment in the South-East region.

As Grace embarks on the next chapter of its journey, it remains dedicated to its founding principles of integrity, respect, and authenticity. With a talented team and a clear vision for the future, the agency is ready to embrace the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead, confident in its ability to continue making a positive impact on the lives of clients and candidates alike.
