Why Artisan People?

Established in 1984, Artisan People Group is passionate about recruiting exceptional people for our stellar client base.

We have long term associations with leading brands in each of the sectors we operate in – Museums & Galleries, Beauty & Fashion, Airside, and Corporate Recruitment.

We are big personalities ourselves on the lookout for other big personalities! In fact, the majority of our temp staff tend to be performers and out-going people who know how to work a crowd. Customer service excellence is key, whatever the sector, so we need people people.

Our clients love us because we’re good at what we do and always go the extra mile, and place candidates with the same work ethic. It’s fair to say, we love what we do. So, why not pop along to office for a chat any time between 8.30am and 6pm, Monday to Friday – just drop us an email to let us know you are coming.
