Our Vision and Values

We didn’t become a leading independent recruitment consultancy in Oxfordshire and London by following the herd; we did it by upholding and living the values we set for ourselves when the business started.

What we stand for

Integrity - Respect - Professionalism - Commitment to Exceptional Service. It is easy to pluck a list of adjectives from the air, but a company’s values must have meaning. These are the four values that we saw as being associated with what we envisaged to be the ‘ideal’ recruitment consultancy.

Allen Associates 20 Years

As our business has grown, these values have continued to influence and guide every area of service that we provide.

In practice, this means that each and every member of the Allen Associates Team must adhere to the following 10 guiding principles – our Model of Excellence:

  1. Work to the principles of best practice
  2. Work with integrity, honesty, openness, loyalty and fairness
  3. Keep the customer’s best interests in mind at all times
  4. Resolve any conflict in a fair and open way
  5. Put principles before profit
  6. Use professional judgement and keep confidentiality at all times
  7. Work quickly, without compromising quality, keeping the customer informed all the way
  8. Welcome advice and learn from any mistakes
  9. Understand the needs of Clients and Candidates
  10. Act with dignity at all times and expect the same in return

Remaining true to our values isn’t just the right thing to do - it benefits our customers, it helps our business and it enables us to further support the local community. This is what ensures Allen Associates stands out in an increasingly competitive Recruitment Consultancy marketplace.
