About Us

Who we are

Morgan Hunt is a multi-award-winning recruitment agency with over 150 consultants across London, Birmingham, Manchester, Bristol and Glasgow. We provide specialist recruitment services to over 2,000 clients.

Founded in 1994, we’ve become renowned for connecting talented candidates and brilliant organisations within the charity, education, finance, government, housing, professional services, property & construction, social care & health and technology sectors.

What makes us different?

Our size is our strength. We’re small enough to care but big enough to make an impact. Genuine passion and enthusiasm for what we do, combined with a deep understanding of our sectors and our ability to respond and adapt swiftly to clients’ needs is what makes us unique.

Our success is our people. We pride ourselves on our commitment to our most important assets – our people – through recognition and rewards. We take care of them so that they can take care of you.

Our core values underpin everything we do and are reflected by our people. Respect, determination, teamwork, integrity, understanding and fun are central to how we work with each other and our clients and candidates. Our consultants take the time to understand your needs and are dedicated to guiding and supporting you through the recruitment process.

Our relationships set us apart. We work closely with some of the largest organisations in further education, housing, social care, charity and more. Our clients trust us with exciting and often exclusive roles, so you can be confident that you’ll find an opportunity that matches your skill and ambition.

Inspiring working lives

We bring together people and employers who look for a sense of purpose in the work they do. Gone are the days when salary was all that mattered. Today’s candidates rightly demand work that’s fulfilling, rewarding and aligned to their aspirations.

Inspiring working lives is about placing talented individuals into organisations through which they can inspire and be inspired, enabling them to make a difference. We strive to bring purpose to people’s careers with opportunities where they will add value, enabling them to contribute to the UK’s public, private and not for profit sectors.

Our objective is to empower individuals to inspire their colleagues, friends, families and communities through their work.

Our story

Morgan Hunt is the vision of brothers Rupert and Stephen Fordham, founded over 25 years ago as a small city headhunting firm. As a result, family values are in our DNA – and that feeds through into our company culture, and the way we treat our employees, candidates and clients. 

In 2001 the company expanded into the public sector for the first time – placing temporary workers into housing associations. This triggered a period of sustained growth within the sector, and ultimately led to the remarkable achievement of winning Best Public Sector Recruitment Agency in four out of five years from 2011 to 2016.

Following this success, we extended our offering to private businesses and public organisations in the education, finance, technology, property and professional services sectors. And we’re now proud to be a specialist multi-sector, multi-service recruitment business with clients and dedicated teams in every corner of the UK.



We built our pedigree in the public sector but have adapted our offering for private sector markets too. Today we’re delighted to serve the public, not-for-profit and commercial sectors and are approved suppliers on many high-profile recruitment frameworks, including:

  • Crown Commercial Service (CCS)
  • Health Trust Europe (HTE)
  • Procurement for Housing (PfH)
  • Crescent Purchasing Consortium (CPC)
  • ESPO
  • YPO
  • Southern Universities Purchasing Consortium (SUPC)
  • London Universities Purchasing Consortium (LUPC)
  • Cirrus Purchasing
  • Hyde Housing

To ensure we uphold and promote the highest possible standards across our recruitment practices, we are long-standing members of recruitment industry body the Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo).

In addition to being serial winners of the Best Public Sector Recruitment agency award, we are also regularly recognised for our work in corporate social responsibility. That’s driven by our family values, and our commitment to not only supporting our staff, candidates and clients but the communities we work within too.
