About Us

Our story 

Amanda Gribbon – the founding Principal of Short Call Recruitment, has 24 years’ recruitment experience, across a myriad of industries.

Amanda gained most of her experience in corporate, in-house environments. Her reasons for setting up Short Call were two fold. Firstly she had grown frustrated over the rigidity in the traditional High St recruitment agency model – why did fees always have to be a hefty % of a candidates’ salary? – Why not  also offer services on a time spent basis? Secondly – having worked in under resourced HR departments, Amanda didn’t always need the contingency model of introducing of candidates.  Sometimes a different service was required – response management, or merely just a CV sourcing service.

Our ethos is a honest, straightforward, “no messing” approach, devoid of “corporate speak” and gobbledegook, very much focused on the end results for our clients – qualified and able new employees, who will contribute to the success of their businesses, as well as continuing to enhance our own reputation!
