Who are we?

Thompson & Terry Recruitment is an independent recruitment agency based in central Abingdon, Oxfordshire. We are a boutique full-service consultancy, with a key focus on sourcing and placing candidates in Sales, Marketing, Office, Administration and Property roles, across Oxfordshire and nationally.

We are dedicated to building strong and personal relationships with our clients and candidates, allowing us to match people to jobs and businesses as accurately as possible. We vouch to only send candidates to our clients that we would personally employ ourselves and are really proud of the statistics that we have achieved as a result of this approach. Over 70% of the first CV that we submit to our clients successfully get the job, compared to the significantly lower national average of circa 5%, and 93% of these candidates remain with our client after at least 9 months of employment.


Whilst most of what we do involves recruiting and placing skilled candidates with our clients, we are also always looking for ways to get involved with the local community. Currently, we work closely with the Oxfordshire-based charity SeeSaw, a non-profit organisation that provides support services to children and young adults who are suffering from grief or bereavement.

Our Managing Director Ben is a Corporate Ambassador for SeeSaw and over the past year, we have taken part in various fundraising events in aid of the charity, including winning the JACKfm 5-a-side football tournament!

If you would like to know more about SeeSaw and how you can help please get in touch.
