Otter was set up fourteen years ago with the intention of creating a more meaningful experience for our clients and candidates.
We are delighted to say that many of our first clients are still our clients and that equally many of our candidates are now our clients.
We like to think that everyone who works with us has the opportunity to build a long-term, meaningful relationship with someone they can trust.
We are not 9-5, we are here when you need us.
So if you are a candidate thinking of taking a look at what is out there, wondering what your next pay review should look like or thinking of changing location then why not get in touch?
If you are a client looking for a recruiter who will understand your business, give you a truly personal service and deliver great talent then we’d love to hear from you.
About The Founder – Charlie Bennett
Otter was set up fourteen years ago by Charlie Bennett.
Charlie has a background in newspapers latterly as Head of Client Sales at the Evening Standard and as a Publisher with Trinity Mirror.
Since then he has been in recruitment. He cut his teeth with a main stream recruiter Nigel Wright.
Fourteen years ago he decided to set up Otter (friendly tenacious hunters – if you are wondering).
The idea being to escape the over process driven world he was in and develop a more personal service.
This has been very successful as his clients and candidates know they are getting a meaningful long term relationship.
The proof of every pudding is in the eating;
A bite into the Otter pie would reveal some tasty entrepreneurial delights. A tasting platter of who we have worked with would include the likes of Belvoir and Charlie Bigham’s and some bigger morsels like Proctor and Gamble, LVMH, Richemont and McCormick. This range of clients has built a candidate data base that gives Otter a wide range of talent in Sales, Marketing and Category Management. Starting at a level of around £35k for junior roles into six figure sums for Directors.
Otter is a truly National business with clients across the whole country and into Mainland Europe.
Outside of Otter Charlie is actively involved in the management of his and his wife’s farm, Middleton-North in Northumberland. Here he has created a sustainable farm from a food production point of view and at the same time as dramatically improving the environment for many kinds of wildlife plants and the soil. Please feel to check out the farm’s website www.middleton-north.co.uk for more info. He has two sons and three dogs. All of which lead him astray on a regular basis!
