Clayton Shuttleworth offer a level of recruitment industry experience and team stability that few can match. Our slogan – Experience Counts – is a powerful statement of what sets us apart. Experience is the intangible dimension that is critical to effective recruitment.



We understand that experience is something that cannot be bought or invented, only accumulated. Our recruitment experts have spent decades in the recruitment field, identifying trends and techniques that give our clients a competitive edge.


We know from experience, and apply industry-specific knowledge to ensure our clients get the right person at the right time in the right role. We know that culture fit, not just qualifications and experience are the keys to placing the right person.


We specialise in delivering recruitment solutions to small and large scale businesses. Clayton and Shuttleworth works with you from beginning to end to achieve a successful outcome. We know the impacts of bad employment decisions, and the quantum shifts that can occur when the right people are put into the right roles at the right company.


We work with clients who understand the value of long-term relationships, and how the knowledge accumulated over the journey enables us to recognise candidates that are the best fit for our client's environment and culture. Qualifications and experience are important, but culture fit can often be the difference between success and failure.​


We pride ourselves on our aptitude to attract talented candidates that our clients may have difficulty finding. Whether it is a temporary, contract or permanent employment requirement, we will work with you to help make a difference. We take the time to recognize what is imperative to you, and deliver recruitment solutions the way you want it.


Recruiting, selecting and placing staff can be a costly exercise for many companies. If your company needs personnel, either on a temporary or casual basis or for full time positions, C&S, as trusted experts in the field, are able to support you through the management ad execution of all aspects of the recruitment, screening, selection, placement and if required labour-hire arrangements thereby not only absorbing risks but also reducing your direct costs.
