Eight is a Newcastle-based Recruitment Agency. Our focus is on recruitment, executive search, the supported job search, and talent advisory. 

Fluent in job and candidate sourcing, Eight is not one to shy away from using an emoji and we're fuelled by the desire to step away from the status quo and find you the best people or next role.

We prefer ‘Ta-Ta’ instead of ‘Kind Regards’ and just like our dance moves, we’re shaking up the recruitment industry. That has been our mission from day dot. Well, this in addition to adding a splash of colour to recruitment. 

Building quality relationships, but also friendships, is what is at our core. We’ve made it this way because we know how important it is for both our clients and our candidates, and this would be why we have clients who have worked exclusively with us for years. By flexing our ability to understand your situation, we’ll find you a role or candidate, wherever they may be. 

We also know that going through the recruitment process for a new role can be daunting. That’s why our meeting spaces make you feel like you never left your own home. Yes, that means it’s comfy couches and family photos galore. Just mind the two French bulldogs as you come in.

“When candidates come in, they share intimate details with us about the journey in life so far. Because of this, we like to make them feel at home and so we’ve surrounded our office with family photos of us all. It’s a lovely way to connect with a candidate who may be nervous”

We stand out and for a reason. We’re about bringing colourful mugs to the table and having the best people around it. Priding ourselves on finding quality talent or the next career move for you is what we do, and if there’s something or someone out there, Eight will know about it.

We also like to be transparent. And although our recruitment model is a little topsy turvy, what you see is what you get. If you're curious about it and would like to know what this includes, we're more than happy to walk you through it, you'll just have to sing out. 


Recruitment is our main trick. But we’re also trained in executive search, the supported job search and talent advisory.

We're recruiters. We love to chat.
