Work for Us


Who are Cavendish Maine?

We have been providing expert recruitment services to a broad range of clients, throughout the UK and internationally since 1991. As we have grown, we have diversified into different business areas, recruiting industry specialists, and in August 2016 we relocated to a modern office building in Portishead, on the outskirts of Bristol.

We now have a team of over 30 people, and our sustained growth is due to the quality of the consultants joining our business.

We currently operate within the following business areas: -

  • Accountancy and Finance
  • Catering and Vending
  • Energy and Built Environment
  • General Insurance
  • International sales
  • Management consultancy
  • Office support
  • Building and DIY
  • Consumer goods
  • Financial Services
  • Interiors
  • IT
  • Marketing
  • Social care

And we are keen add to the existing team and also to expand into other areas by recruiting consultants with industry specific knowledge.

Why work for us?

Cavendish Maine has a very low staff turnover, with a large number of our team having been with us for over 10 years, with some of the team rapidly approaching 20 years of service. For experienced recruiters to stay around for that length of time, we must be doing something right.

Why do people stay?

  • Consultants have a high level of autonomy and independence.
  • We provide unparalleled levels of support to enable you to focus 100% on your role.
  • We provide generous rewards alongside a friendly working environment, including:
    • Regular salary increments rewarding success
    • Car allowance
    • A generous pension contribution
    • Private healthcare and cash plan
    • Free parking
  • We have a clear career progression path which can lead to an invitation to become a partner in the business.
  • We have an on-site gym, and a personal trainer who comes to our offices twice a week as well as providing access to a company paid sports masseur.

Like what you hear – don’t just take our word for it – look at some of our success stories: -

Chris Turner

“I joined Cavendish Maine in 2006 and have never looked back! I recruit primarily at a senior level in the physical asset management sector and in finance and accountancy. Having worked in large national recruitment consultancies for several years before joining I can honestly say that we have a unique culture here where everyone is treated as an adult, is given plenty of space and time to develop their entrepreneurial skills and yet is also part of a very friendly supportive and sociable team.

I believe that the opportunity to develop a long term, hugely profitable and enjoyable career in recruitment with Cavendish Maine is unparalleled in the south west recruitment market.”


Alex Waring

I specialise in Sales and Senior Management appointments in the Commercial Catering Equipment industry, I’m now in my tenth year and during this time the business has sponsored me to take the CFSP (Certified Food Service Professional) accreditation as well as a number of structured training programmes which have all helped me achieve success in my role. We enjoy a team environment made up of people that all have different backgrounds but get on well both in and out of work.

This is a highly flexible, ‘grown-up’ and supportive business that rewards success, upholds strong values and looks after their staff. A truly enjoyable place to work with some great perks!
