The Clever Fish Recruitment was established in 2009 by Adam & Victoria Dyson following growing demand from clients and candidates looking for a reliable, honest and fair recruitment service.

With over 40 year's industry experience recruiting at both a local and national level, we recruit for all sectors within the Office (Commercial), Industrial, Engineering & Technical.

Temporary, temporary to permanent and permanent recruitment, giving you the flexibility you need and a cost effective recruitment process that will save you time and money.

Working for a number of high street and specialist recruiters over the years, one comes to appreciate the importance the little differences can make. All too often recruitment companies focus their attention on meeting corporate sales targets, achieving commission structures, adhering to Key performance indicators and generally adopting a bums on seats approach.

As one can appreciate, as agencies grow in size, their focus tends to shift away from what's really important, what we like to call The little differences. All too often this is a bi-product of large unnecessary overheads, progressive commission structures and exaggerated fees which are invariably passed onto you.

Given this fairly derogatory portrayal of the recruitment industry, you could be forgiven for asking yourself, Why The Clever Fish Recruitment, well let me try and elaborate on this further.

You see, here at the 'The Clever Fish Recruitment' we are not driven by aggressive sales targets, commission structures and volume business. We are an independently owned and financed recruitment business, managed and directed by my wife Victoria and myself.

Both Victoria and Myself upheld the belief that The Clever Fish Recruitment would provide a platform for us to launch a service which was different to other high street recruiters. An organisation, which is more concerned with providing an honest, fair, and friendly service, a company which focused on providing the little differences.

To that end, our sole driving force, and the fundamental reason for establishing The Clever Fish Recruitment was in response to demands from both our clients and candidates who were simply looking for a fair, honest and cost effective recruitment service.

So with that in mind, you can rest assured that when you choose the Clever Fish as your recruitment partner, you can expect to receive no less than an honest, reliable and cost effective service which is underpinned by quality, professionalism and a personal approach.

We have used Clever Fish Recruitment at Arnold Laver Bradford for a number of years now and we have built up a very good relationship with Adam. He caters for our Business needs which can be very demanding in our fast paced industry. After years of exceptional service Adam has now been challenged with the recruitment at several other depots.

We have been using Clever Fish Recruitment now for just over a year and in this short time we have known them they have been extremely professional and helpful. From the first time they came to meet us they provided invaluable advice and nothing was too much trouble. I am pleased to say that they have been successful in finding us two new members of staff whom we initially set on on a temporary basis but have since taken on permanently and they have proved to be an asset to our company.

Cleverfish is an exceptional service and I would highly recommend. I have been using there service for about a year now and they have never let me down. There communication skills are 100% and are always pleasant to talk to whether that be over the phone, E-mail or face face. I am a production supervisor and our business can suddenly pick up overnight which means at a drop of a hat I may need staff asap and Cleverfish supply me with staff at very short notice. I always have piece of mind when contacting them for staff as they are always happy to help and will fulfil my staffing levels instantly. Once you go Cleverfish you will never go back to any other recruitment agency again.

Hi Adam, thank you for all the work you've done over the past few months. I really appreciate everything. Thanks to Clever Fish, I now have a permanent contract and can give my family the security they need. All the best!


The Clever Fish Recruitment really are clever fish. I have steered clear of using recruitment agencies in the past due to previous experiences not being great. However, Adam’s approach is different, he took the time to come and meet us and ensured he understood the role and listened to our requirements rather than just rushing to fill the position. Excellent communications, open and honest. I can highly recommend The Clever Fish Recruitment as they have found us two new recruits to join our team and they’re exactly who we were looking for. Thank you!


We initially came across Clever Fish on our most recent recruitment drive. Adam and his team quickly familiarised themselves with our business and the type of candidates we required for our business. From the outset we required a quick turnaround and needed a number of positioned filled at short notice. The communication received from the start as been exemplary and the calibre of candidates received as been excellent. The approach conducted by Clever Fish, Adam and his team was very hands on and the service we received with candidate's inductions and the administration of this process was accurate and timely.

We have successfully placed a number of Clever Fish temporary staff into permanent positions with great success. We would have no hesitation in recommending Clever Fish's services to others and we continue to have good working relationship with them.


I found all aspects of The Clever Fish Recruitment's service to be very professional from start to finish. I saw my current position advertised and contacted The Clever Fish Recruitment. They went through the job description in detail and talked to me to see if I had the appropriate skills to meet the needs of their client, to make sure we'd be a good fit. It turned out we were and I am now happily employed.

The Clever Fish Recruitment kept me informed at every stage, emailed and phoned when they said they would over appointments, interviews and any administration. Their attention to detail meant that both potential employees and employers receive a service that works and has longevity. I would not hesitate in recommending them to both job seekers or clients wishing to recruit employees.
