About Us

Skillsearch Dental are a niche recruiter specialising in staffing Dental practices across the UK

A former Dental Practice Manager, a former Dental Nurse, experience of In House Dental recruitment and over 47 years of agency recruitment are the elements that make Skillsearch Dental a success. We know what its like to be a client and a candidate so let us help smooth the route to your next hire or new job.

We work to a basic model we call our “Iceberg” methodology where the majority of work goes unseen. We proactively engage with our candidates to ensure we know their exact needs including role and company type, location and career ambitions. We appreciate that recruitment is often not a quick fix – it can take months and beyond to source a dream job and we’ll be there for the journey no matter how long. When our clients ask for our help a lot of the sourcing work has already been done as we are constantly proactively anticipating our next request and are prequalifying candidates against that likely request. This means that when a role goes live we can deliver quicker and more accurately than our competitors. Our aim is to make the job look as easy as possible from the outside.

For clients we want to make sure we get as great an understanding of your requirements as possible by making them three dimensional and not just rely on a spec via email. We ask to spend some time with you (ideally face to face where practical) to get an excellent understanding of each individual role, your culture, your team and even the logistics of how to get to your offices. All these elements can make a key difference when we are introducing a candidate to their next potential employer.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide our clients with top talent in the Dental sector; providing a highly professional, targeted and efficient recruitment service, through a proactive and personal approach..

Our Values

Skillsearch consultants value relationships above anything else, internally and externally. We work hard to build and maintain those relationships until honesty, integrity and trust from both sides is a given. We also set our own exceptionally high standards in order to be one step ahead of the expectations our customers have of us.

The Green Objective

Skillsearch recognises that we have a responsibility to the environment beyond legal and regulatory requirements. We are committed to reducing our environmental impact and continually improving our environmental performance. For example, our lighting is motion sensor based helping to reduce energy use, we recycle everything we are able to and we have a bike store and shower, encouraging employees to cycle to work. We endeavour to incorporate environmental factors into business decisions and are always looking for new means of reducing our carbon footprint.
