About us

We’re Response Network, a small recruitment specialist in Nottingham, East Midlands.

Our secret to why we’re the best at what we do? No secret really, just a powerful combination of recruitment expertise, fearless tenacity and a diligent work ethic. That’s it, that’s what ensures we find the best talent to fit with the best companies… whether they are on the market or not.

We deliver this remarkable service via a collaborative working practice, fused with a genuine motivation to improve business and personal outcomes. And it’s this honest and ethical approach that yields stronger long-term client and candidate relationships.




We bring over 20 years combined recruitment experience to our business.  Offering expertise across an extremely wide range of industries and sectors.  Since opening our doors in 2011 we have continued to tailor our approach to ensure that clients and candidates alike receive a truly outstanding service and our team have the same vision and values.

Clients quickly realise our claims are well-founded. We do exactly what we say we will, without exception. It’s a very simple philosophy, but one that works.
► We work hard to build lasting relationships, not “quick-win” opportunities.
► We get a lot of repeat business based on doing a great job for our clients.
► We listen more than we talk, with clients and candidates.
► We care more about the quality of our service than how much we invoice.
We spend a great deal of time getting to know the specific nuances of our clients’ businesses so we are often able to anticipate their needs. We are also not frightened to say “No”. If we think we can’t help, we’ll say so. It’s about managing people’s expectations – then you never let anyone down.

It’s hard not to sound clichéd when talking about our values and what we’re trying to achieve. But we think the underlying reason we are so successful, and indeed what sets us apart from our competitors, is simply that we treat your business like our own and put ourselves in the shoes of our candidates.

Clients tell us the main reasons they come back time and again are:
► We offer great flexibility, happily speaking to them during evenings and weekends.
► We take time to understand their business; that’s how we find the right people.
► It’s clear to them our focus is to provide service excellence; it’s not just about the money.
► Our service represents real value for money, always exceeding expectations.
The flexibility of our services means we are able to:
► Support a wide range of clients from SME’s to large blue chip organisations.
► Recruit for any sector, at all levels up to and including Board level appointments.

Our consultative style applies to our candidates as well as our clients. We understand it can be a tricky business when looking for a new job, especially if you’re already in one! Here are some of the ways we try to make things easier:

► Providing detailed, accurate information about the roles you are applying for.
► Keeping you fully informed throughout the recruitment process.

What our Clients say

  • I have worked with Dee for a number of years now and she has placed the majority of staff in my team. She has also placed a lot of staff across the business. I find her to be professional in her approach and she doesn’t give up until she finds you the right person for the role. Dee acts like an internal recruiter, she builds rapport with my team and hiring managers and is very transparent in her approach.

  • Taryn truly is recruitment with a difference. Taryn has fulfilled the largest proportion of our recruitment needs over the last 12 months, due to her excellence in understanding the business, sourcing to cultural fit and proposing wild cards -that often turn out to be the ideal candidate. Further supported by us having built a great working relationship, Taryn understands the extremes of our working styles and caters to fit e.g. providing updates outside of ‘office hours’. Recently, Taryn has placed several positions that have turned to pipeline talent with rapid progression throughout the business. She only places quality! Always a pleasure to work with.

    — HR within a growing manufacturing business —
  • Taryn is extremely personable, professional and great to work with.
    She understands things very quickly and her work rate and commitment to getting the job done is superb.
    Taryn also understands the commercial aspects and the environment that we are working and her flexible approach is an asset.
    The 1-1 approach is refreshing and re-assuring.

    — Managing Director – Global Beauty Products Company —
  • We have dealt with Dee-Anne Slade for recruitment now for over 5 years and have built up a fantastic working relationship.  Dee-Anne is very committed and always finds us the right candidates for all different vacancies we have had over the years.  She has got to know us as a company really well and understands exactly how we work ensuring that the highest quality candidates get put forward to us.  It is a pleasure to work with an agency that takes the needs of our business seriously and strives make the recruitment process as easy as possible for our company which takes the pressure off us.  Excellent service every time.

  • I have worked with Taryn both as a colleague and a Service Provider. As a Service Provider she is thorough, committed to delivering excellent results and is very personable. She has a pragmatic approach and doesn’r over promise.

    — HR Director – Global Retail Firm —
  • I have been associated professionally with Dee-Anne Slade for approximately 5 years.  During this time she has assisted me with the recruitment of both administration and secretarial staff into a busy Financial Services environment.  I have always found Dee-Anne to be extremely professional and approachable.  She has always been very helpful, without being pushy, and completely takes on board the type of person you are looking for and has delivered without fail.  Every candidate that she has put forward to me for interview has been employed by me and I have been delighted with them.  The calibre of candidates put forward is very high and it is clear that Dee-Anne knows her candidates!  I have no hesitation at all in recommending Dee-Anne or Response Network Recruitment.
