Emily Richardson


“To me, there’s no better feeling than bringing together a candidate and business that ‘fit’ each other really well. It’s kind of like professional matchmaking, in that you have to get under the skin on the client’s business and understand the culture as well as the requirements of the roll. And the same goes for candidates, too – you have to know what makes them tick and what kind of person they are.

“Bringing over a decade of customer service and account management experience into my role, when you work with me, you can be confident you’ll always receive standout service.  From getting a full and thorough brief, through to finding only the best candidates, and handling negotiations for you, I’ll make the process seamless, effortless, and enjoyable for everyone involved.”


Savannah Houlden


“After working in industrial recruitment for 5 years, I moved to Charterhouse recruitment to specialise in Finance and Accounting… so far it’s the best decision I’ve made in my career! I love a fast-paced environment, especially where I can develop and grow amazing working relationships (with both clients and candidates!). I love the thrill of finding someone their dream role or finding a client their dream candidate.

When I am not at work, I like spending time with my family and friends, using there’s good food and wine involved, or I am curled up on the sofa with a good book.”

Katie Henry


I have been a Temporary and Contracts Recruitment Consultant with Charterhouse for over three years. Prior to this I worked within both the legal sector as a legal assistant and in the property industry as a lettings agent.

I have developed a real passion for recruitment and enjoy working within a fast-paced environment whilst providing exceptional service to both clients and candidates. During my time at Charterhouse I have had the opportunity to work on large recruitment projects, involving account management, a part of the role I relish. Meeting and speaking to new people everyday whether this be on the phone, via online platforms or attending sales pitches is a great part of my job.

Outside of work I enjoy socialising with friends and family. Keeping fit and healthy is important to me, aerobics, running, and walking are some of my favourite pastimes. I look forward to my holidays and exploring new places, a few of my favourite destinations have been Dubai, Bali and Thailand.


About our 5-star service

Done the right way, recruitment services help businesses thrive, and people realise their true potential. We wholeheartedly believe that if you prioritise people, profit will follow. So, we focus on relationships, not revenue.

We don’t mis-sell or oversell. We don’t ‘CV-sling’. And we never steer you to make a decision for our own gain. Instead, we only put candidates forwards if we believe they’re a great match. We put you in the driving seat. And we always stick to our proven 5-star process. Combine that with the personable service our sector-specialist recruiters deliver, and it’s no wonder we’ve been paving the way for better recruitment for over 20 years.

1. Discovery

Finding your ideal candidates starts with a deep-dive discovery process. We’ll meet to learn more about your business, and the role you’re recruiting for. Then, we’ll agree on terms, so everyone knows what to expect.

2. Multi-Channel Attraction

Using multiple channels, we give ourselves the best chance of finding your ideal candidate. From searching through our established networks and 27,000+ social connections, to headhunting, asking for referrals, and posting on jobs boards, we leave no stone unturned.

3. Sourcing and Selection

Using a robust selection process, our specialist recruiters whittle down the long-list of applicants into a concise shortlist of high-quality, ideal-fit candidates. Then, we’ll share the shortlist with you via a Livelist.

4. Candidate Management

Our Livelist is an interactive, intuitive shortlist of candidates you access online (no more searching through your inbox to find CVs!) Here, you can review candidates and let us know who you’d like to interview. Then, we’ll handle everything from interview scheduling through to providing feedback to candidates.

5. Offer Management

You tell us who you want to hire, and we’ll do the rest, from coordinating offers to checking back in with you and the candidate at set periods. In most instances, it’s a match made in heaven. But if it’s not, we’ll work with you and reach a better outcome.
