About Us

At Monica Clare Recruitment, people are our business. A special bunch, too.


We look after inspired people and find them inspiring careers. We help great businesses grow and find them employees who water their business goals, becoming like pillars in foundation.



Our recruits succeed because of people, not a process.



Monica Clare Recruitment is born from such a person: Clare Ferguson. She dared to ask, “Can we do more?” Seeing a gap in the market, she designed a business that gives both clients and candidates a service they want; a tailored solution, unique to a person or the philosophies that make up a business.


We’ve now grown to a team of nearly 20, specialising in permanent, temporary and contract recruitment. We have an expert consultant team who covers a range of industries, from Accounting to Engineering, IT to Construction and Legal to Executive.



At Monica Clare Recruitment we pride ourselves on data-driven results.



We boast a 95% success rate, with over 81% of candidates placed there two years later. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach, just time intensive, thorough vetting from a consultant with an experienced eye.


Better yet, we are always looking to grow our network of people.



All great recruits start with a conversation.



We want to know all about your aspirations, values, joys and passions. We want to know about your business, and your goals: fiscal and pie in the sky. Everything that makes you hum. Let’s get talking.
