About Tate

Tate was founded in 1985 by Lady Virginia Tate. Her vision was simple: to be the best, everywhere, all the time. And the values she conceived were so powerful that they continue to form the backbone of everything we do today.

We are an award-winning recruitment consultancy, providing high-calibre candidates for office specialist roles on a temporary and permanent basis. We recruit for a wide range of positions – everyone from HR managers, marketing specialists and executive PAs to administrators, call centre staff and receptionists.

With branches across the UK, and a client list that includes multinationals and local firms, we’re big enough to handle any recruitment request, but personal enough to do it with passion.
