A former international show jumper who became managing director of an international hair extensions business has set up her own recruitment agency in Warwickshire.

Claire Bartley, who was managing director of Racoon International, a Southam-based company whose hair extensions are sold to salons and individuals around the world, including Hollywood stars, has launched Sunshine Recruitment Group in Southam.

Claire, who had a successful equestrian career representing both England and Great Britain, gained her recruitment experience at agencies such as Arden Shields and Prestige Nursing.

“I have a lot of experience, both as a recruitment consultant and as a businesswoman on the receiving end of agency candidates, and I feel there is a gap in the market for a recruitment agency that feels passionately about matching the right person with the right job,” she said.

“Recruitment can become a numbers game where some agencies fail to vet the candidates thoroughly and employers then feel deluged by applicants. I feel many have lost track of what they are meant to be achieving.

“That’s why I’ve launched Sunshine Recruitment Group, to offer that service which I believe is missing in the region. We thoroughly interview our clients and our candidates and only submit up to three hand-picked candidates, all of whom are ideally qualified for the post.”

The agency covers a broad spectrum of interesting roles from marketing and business development to carpenters and electricians. We even offer executive placement and headhunting services.
Sunshine Recruitment Group, which caters for most jobs – permanent, temporary and contract across all industries – has moved into offices in Brewster’s Corner off Pendicke Street, where Claire is already recruiting more staff for her own operation.

The lease was negotiated by Nick Watts, a commercial solicitor with Blythe Liggins in Leamington. “I have been a client of Blythe Liggins in Leamington for many years and I must thank Nick for handling the lease so quickly and thoroughly.”

Mr Watts said: “Claire is targeting businesses within a 30-mile radius of Southam, a region which is thriving with lots of expanding businesses looking for high calibre staff. I think she will do extremely well.”
