The total recruitment talent partner to the property and real estate industry

Our mission is to make everyone’s Mondays Matter

We’re now more than a decade old and time certainly flies when you love what you do as much as we do.

When Joshua Rayner created Rayner Personnel back in 2012, it was because he knew having the right people and the best talent was the difference between a good business and a great one.

He hasn’t deviated from that belief and our values remain the same today as they were back then.

But that doesn’t mean we’ve stood still.

We’ve built our own talented team, packed with more than 70 years of recruitment know-how and a huge 400 years’ experience in the property sector.

And we’ve evolved in line with the businesses and people we serve, offering a huge range of services from workforce planning, branding, assessment and selection to onboarding, employee engagement and talent acquisition at all levels.

Don't just take our word for it, here's what one of our valued clients had to say about their experience with Rayner Personnel

Our values and why they matter

    Our reputation matters as much as the results we get for our partners. We’re experts and our aim to be seen as professional, supportive, and committed.

    There’s no better gauge of our success than a positive recommendation. We strive to provide a level of service to all our clients that means they’d be happy to refer us to someone else.

Our history

  • 2018

    A huge milestone

    ​Early in 2018 we were established as the UK’s largest property recruiter based on headcount and just two months later, we moved into a larger office to help with our continued growth.

  • 2012

    Rayner Personnel is born

    ​We opened our doors for the first time in September 2012 and placed our first person just a month later.

    You're hired!

    ​Early in 2013, we hired the first member of our team and later that year, we rebranded with a new logo and website.

  • 2014

    On the move

    ​In January 2014, we opened our first dedicated office in Bishop’s Stortford, while the team grew to nine people later that year.

  • 2015

    Franchise launch

    ​After three years of incredible growth and success, we created a franchise model for the business, while exceeding £1million in turnover for the first time later that year.

  • 2016

    Spreading our wings

    ​After launching a new self-employed licensee model in January 2016, we expanded into the South East, East of England and the Home Counties between April and November.
