Between us we have over 60 years combined experience of recruitment in the Lincolnshire area, covering all types of jobs both temporary and permanent.
We set up in business together because we share the same ethical standards for recruitment and wanted to create a recruitment agency both clients and candidates could trust.
Samantha’s career started in London but transferred her skills to Lincolnshire when she decided to turn her focus completely to the recruitment industry. For over 20 years she has been successfully recruiting for both temporary and permanent vacancies in the South Lincolnshire area. During this period there has been a real development in the business mix within the area along with candidates arriving from all over the world seeking employment.
Integrity Plus was incorporated in 2005 and alongside John they have built a solid reputation as well as growing the business with a turnover in excess of £1.4M. “As a Co-Director each day brings exciting new challenges from the variety of vacancies that our candidates and clients bring us.“
“Being honest and ethical and knowing and understanding our business and clients is the key to our ongoing success.”
"Honesty's always our best policy"
Fellow founding director John Tipper firmly believes that a key part of the success of Integrity Plus to date is the fact that it really does live up to its name.
“We’re honest and we do what we say,” he states. “Many of our customers have stayed with us since we launched and that is pretty unusual. I think it’s because we have a genuine desire to help by finding the right person for the right job. We do have integrity and our clients seem to appreciate that.”
Originally from a banking and finance background, John has worked in recruitment since 1985, with vast experience gained from working as a Senior Manager for a major Blue Chip recruitment organisation.
Since establishing integrity Plus in 1994 with fellow director Sam they have developed a strong working relationship; their combined skill sets enabling them to motivate and develop their excellent hard-working team.
“We don’t sit in our ivory tower simply telling people what to do,” explains John. We’re actively involved in the business. Like Sam, I love the fact that every day is different. You never know what is going to happen when you walk through that door every morning. I thrive on the variety.”
In his spare time, outside of recruitment, John enjoys breeding cats and dogs ably assisted by his wife Caroline.
Jen is our dedicated permanent Recruitment Consultant. She manages a wide variety of vacancies from Junior Administration positions through to Engineers and Warehouse Managers.
She has been working in permanent recruitment for over 4 years and began recruiting within the Toy and Licensing Industry. Having moved to Lincolnshire in 2013 with her husband, she joined the Integrity Plus team to focus on the development of the permanent recruitment desk.
Jen prides herself on giving job seekers sound advice on their search, devising a professional CV and outlining the many options available to them. This role works perfectly when combined with providing an equally proficient and thorough service to all employers.
“When we get someone back into work after they’ve been out of work for some time, it’s a really good feeling,” says Integrity Plus’ Lee Dickings.
“It’s great to know that at some level you’re making their life that bit easier and that makes the job even more enjoyable,” he added.
Lee joined the Integrity team in 2008, having first worked alongside directors John and Sam at another recruitment company.
His current role is completely hands on. Involving an enjoyable mix of sales calls and varied administration duties – everything from sorting through CVs to taking bookings, interviewing and inducting candidates, alongside visiting clients.
Lee believes one of the Integrity Plus team’s key strengths is that everyone spends time really getting to know clients so they can truly understand their needs.
“We’re honest. We always do our best for people and we like to get to know them,” he says.
In his spare time Lee enjoys fishing, and spending time with his family.
