Tate was founded in 1985 by Lady Virginia Tate who had a vision to create a jewel of a consultancy – an impeccable blend of people and process.
The Tate values were conceived by the founding members of Tate in 1985 and live on today through the behaviours, actions and deeply embedded processes of the business.
It is the Tate value system that makes the company different and a very special place to work for its staff. From the moment people come into contact with Tate at the recruitment stage, they are positively affected by the passion and drive of senior management.
This sense of belonging to a company, which is ‘distinctively different’, is further developed throughout their career at Tate.
The impeccable blend of people and process is at the core of everything we do. From placing bright new talent into their first job, to career office professionals, we help businesses thrive and grow with the right people.
We are an award-winning recruitment consultancy, recognised for our candidate care philosophy.
Our vision to be ‘the best, everywhere, all the time’ means that you can expect to receive the same exemplary Tate service at all our offices.
We have recruited high quality secretarial and office support staff since 1985. Today our customers include FTSE-listed companies and SMEs, as well as many public sector organisations. We now have 27 branches covering every corner of the UK.
Our ‘Watertight Guarantee’ reflects the confidence we have in our service; if you are not happy with the candidates we provide, you don’t pay. Better still, for permanent placements that terminate within the first 100 days, we offer a 110% discount.
It’s the strongest guarantee in the industry, and ensures the right person for the job, every time.
