Relaxed and approachable, our attention is on you. We can shine a light on the person behind the CV.
Whether you’re starting out or stepping up, we really listen to the organisations we recruit for, helping us to help you make smarter employment decisions. Our experience working in the industry means we're uniquely placed to advise you on roles and companies, and help give you the edge over other candidates.
Based in Bristol and representing the top financial services firms across Bristol, Bath and the South West region, we aim to be your first choice amongst local recruitment companies to find your ideal job or career.
As part of our service to you, where we agree to represent you to our clients, we will spend time talking with you to get to know you better. If needed, we’ll spend time tweaking and enhancing your CV and, if successful in securing an interview, will give you coaching on how to prepare for, and answer, interview questions, to help give you the edge over competing candidates.
Based in Bristol, and covering the South West region, we’re a couple of likeminded ex-colleagues with over two decades of recruitment experience between us. Uniquely we’re not career recruiters – our background is in senior leadership within a FTSE100 financial services firm.
With responsibility for the professional aspirations of hundreds of people in our care, we learnt to coax the absolute best out of everyone. We are acutely aware that poor appointments can be both damaging and expensive and maintain the belief that great recruitment can be transformational.
At Skilling Gate we challenge the recruitment status quo and deliver value to both clients and candidates alike.
Our principles are simple and honest; to listen, to be ethical, to persevere, to deliver outstanding service and to put people first.
