Jackie Frost set up Rural Recruitment in 2010, when she felt there was a need for an Agency specialising in all country staff – Grooms, Mother’s help, Housekeepers, Gardeners, Cleaners, Private Chefs, Butlers etc. However since opening the agency Rural Recruitment has grown and now recruits for PAs/Office Managers/Farm Secretaries, Receptionists, Administrators, HR Managers, Bookkeepers, Stud Secretaries and much more.

With so many private country houses, large estates, farms and commercial businesses within the area, there is a high demand for a variety of domestic and office staff.

Rebecca Rivett, (Jackie’s daughter) joined Rural Recruitment in 2015 and brings a wealth of experience in the Commercial department as well as the equestrian and child care sector.

Rebecca is based in Norfolk and Jackie in Suffolk so interviews and client visits are easily organised. They also attend International Horse Shows and networking events enabling them to meet current / new employers and employees.

Unlike other agencies you will only ever speak to Jackie or Rebecca and they are available 24/7 including evenings and weekends.
