About us

Get to know us better

We’re expert recruitment consultants who like to get to know people. We find that this makes for an easier, less stressful and all-round more productive experience.

We have been a leading recruitment agency for over 30 years, offering an unrivalled service and building strong, quality relationships with our clients and candidates. We look at things for the long term; our clients and candidates stay with us, as well as our trusted consultants. This allows for stronger, more fruitful partnerships to develop and grow our successful reputation.

Devonshire was founded as a presentation graphics and creative agency covering solely the London area. Today, we are fully established in the UK, Luxembourg and Ireland and our teams have grown to provide recruitment in more sectors on a global scale. In 2019, Devonshire was acquired by Paragon Group, a leading business and customer communications company present in over 20 countries.

The secret is simple: by creating in-depth and long-lasting partnerships, we’re better placed to give you strategic advice and connect the right talent with the right opportunity.
