Principles to set you up for success

When you have a good attitude, it naturally follows you’ll do a great job. Clearfielders set themselves up for positive results by following our values…



Stay on mission

In a world of distractions, the people taking great leaps forward are those who stay focused on the objectives and keep taking action to achieve the right outcomes. It works for us!



Do the right thing

As professionals, we always go the extra mile to take care of our clients and candidates and each other. Good service is the foundation for all our decisions, with diligence always trumping convenience.



Own it

There is nothing more empowering than taking responsibility for your actions and issues. Accepting ownership breeds confidence and usually means you’re on track for a positive outcome!



Be optimistic

People who expect the best usually get it. We’re never held back by worries about what could go wrong, and are driven by what we aim to achieve, always expecting a positive result.

The people at the front line

Choosing a career at a young age can be daunting. Falling into recruitment after higher education was great for me because every day in recruitment is different, making it an exciting career choice. Starting as an apprentice 5 years ago I am now a senior member of staff, a workplace where age doesn’t hold you back.

I feel fortunate to help the business grow to where it is now, including supplying new sectors of the construction market. A lot has changed in the past 3 years; staff headcount has increased by over 50%; we have moved to a new, high quality finished office in the centre of Ipswich; amongst many other things. There is real momentum and support at Clearfield to keep this progression going and I would highly recommend a career with us, whether you are an experienced recruiter, or someone new to the industry!


Adam Goss/Senior Recruitment Consultant

I started at Clearfield a year ago after becoming disillusioned at a global plc, and haven’t looked back. The autonomy I’m given to run my section of the business has delivered great results and together we’ve built something I’m incredibly proud of, not only from a performance perspective but we’ve got a great bunch in the permanent appointments team. I was attracted to Clearfield initially as it’s an impressive brand in the local construction market, a reputation that’s still growing both further afield and at home in Suffolk. Clearfield really is a fantastic place to work.

There is a real sense of team spirit amongst my colleagues, a fantastic management team that values our ideas and opinions and our hard work is not only recognised it is rewarded. I have been given Opportunities for continuous growth and I am excited to further my career here at Clearfield.
