Our History

Grassroots was founded in 2008 by directors Caroline Patten and Richard Brown. The idea was to create a recruitment business based on delivering consultative services to help employers attract and retain a higher quality of recruit. Growing steadily with a North-West client base, Grassroots established a reputation based on quality and ethics.

In 2015, Steven Byrne joined the Board as Director and Shareholder, launching our IT Recruitment Division to deliver contract and permanent resource solutions across the UK. We relocated to Regent House in Stockport town centre, expanding our team and investing in the necessary infrastructure to scale-up our operations.

Today, with a dedicated team of consultants delivering bespoke solutions to businesses across the North West and Nationwide, Grassroots is a £1.7m turnover award-winning recruitment consultancy.
