About King Recruit and King Executive

King Recruit has recently received Private Equity backing from James Caan CBE’s award-winning investment firm; Recruitment Entrepreneur.

We’ve evolved from an organically grown business to a fast-paced ‘scale-up’ recruitment and search firm, that is set to dominate the Southwest region with further plans for UK & International expansion.

Since its inception, King has gone from strength the strength moving into offices at Pynes Hill in Exeter and placing over 250 people in careers. In January 2021 we expanded King Recruit with the addition of King Executive to assist clients with more strategic, high-performing positions, placing business leaders into leading businesses so that they can achieve a high-performance culture and superior results.

In partnership with Recruitment Entrepreneur (RE), we now plan to develop the group even further with the addition of King Tech, King Sales, King Finance, and King Digital over the next 12 months. We plan to expand our Exeter operation and also open a Bristol office.
