The Your People Partners Story

In the early years of my recruitment career (backing the 1990s), I grew tired of the outdated methods most recruiters still use to find candidates. That was in the first week of my first recruitment job in Bristol, England.
About YPP
After being headhunted to a recruitment start-up making full use of the new-fangled world-wide-web, I moved to Chicago, USA to launch a new recruitment office. The timing wasn’t quite right though as the new office opened one day before Sep 11th 2001.
About YPP

Back in the UK in 2002, and after another interesting recruitment start-up experience, marriage and motherhood came knocking. Along with this came some rather challenging years with our child, who had cancer at the age of 3. Being out of work and unemployable, the universe shouted at me. I could hear the universe saying that I needed to finally stand on my own two feet.

I realised I had an opportunity.

About YPP

Use what I had learned about my tenacity and ability to get through some challenging times to start my own company. After dabbling and learning loads about business, recruitment and myself in two new start-ups, I finally decided to do it for myself!


I fully leant into my vision of fundamentally changing how recruitment is done.


Fed up with the traditional recruiter way of ‘ticking boxes’, I created Your People Partners to help you find the perfect employee to help your business grow whilst saving you time and money.


I also strive to reduce the stress involved in hiring for the people looking for a new job and the business owner we help.

I’ve been recruiting to my new staff team at Granny’s Secret and Helen Sanders of Your People Partners helped me to do so very easily. She understood what I needed as a business owner as well as what the actual business needed from the new member of staff.

I found Helen was really in tune with our requirements and fully understood the nuances of our brief. She identified some excellent candidates for the role we were seeking to fill and ultimately found us the person we had been looking for. Helen succeeded where some competitors had most definitely failed. I would certainly work with Helen again and recommend her highly.

I would to express my huge thanks and appreciation to this lovely lady and her team at Your People Partners. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking to recruit a member of staff. They are efficient, knowledgeable, professional yet so approachable and friendly. No question, so matter how “stupid” I thought it was, went unanswered. They have a tried and tested process which really worked for me and the best part is that it was so simple and easy to follow.
