About us

At Obscurant Recruitment, we’re not trying to be the biggest recruitment firm – but rather to be recognised as the best, by delivering a fast, personal service.

Obscurant Solutions was established by recruitment professional Heather Maxfield, to deliver ‘a new, more personal kind of recruitment service’. Heather has over 30 years recruitment industry experience, with an enviable reputation for service and quality.

Market focus

Obscurant Solutions is focused on specific industry sectors, hiring people for:

  • Executive Search / Senior Roles
  • Administration / Business Support
  • Engineering / Technical
  • Finance / Accountancy
  • HR / Training
  • IT
  • Retail
  • Sales / Marketing / PR

A truly personal service

It’s easy for someone to say that they offer a ‘personal service’ but what does that really mean? At Obscurant Recruitment, we believe that it means creating a bespoke service around the needs of the client – and then delivering that service in a friendly, honest way. So, we work with clients to understand exactly what they want – and Obscurant Recruitment’s managing director, Heather Maxfield, works personally on every single placement. (Heather’s worked in recruitment for over 30 years, including a successful 20-year stint with one of the largest UK recruiters.)

A Personalised Approach

Working with Obscurant Recruitment gives clients access to a recruiter with over 30 years’ experience within recruitment firms both large and small.

For those who feel that working with a big firm in itself means getting a better service, the reality is that even within the biggest firms each placement is usually managed by just one person!

What makes us different?

We don’t go out of our way to be ‘different’ as such, but we do work hard to be the best. We always go the extra mile – and something is never just ‘good enough’ as far as we’re concerned. It has to be right. We’re also genuinely experienced – all placements are worked on by time-served professionals who have developed real expertise.
