Our Core Values-Leveraging the Value of an Ageing Popoulation

The Really Caring 60+ Recruitment Co was established nearly 10 years to help the ever increasing number of older people to utilise their experience, skills and energy and find meaningful and stimulating employment. We want to make sure that this severely under-utilised resource is recognised for the extraordinary value and opportunity that it represents and bring humanity back into the face-less and commoditised world of recruitment. The Company has firmly established itself as the leader in its field and is now expanding rapidly it's business model throughout the British Isles and shortly also across continental Europe. Although we have taditionally focussed on the over 60s we have considerable expertise in finding jobs for people over the age of 50 as well and more generally, people of all ages!

The Really Caring 60+ Recruitment Co. was established to do exactly what its name suggests:to recognise people's value, to care about finding suitable and stimulating work for older men and women – highly experienced men and women anxious to pass on their values, knowledge and abilities.

Success Stories

Success Stories

“I think the 'over 60' service you have set up is excellent. There are many experienced, skilled and enthusiastic people out there that have much to offer businesses and organisations such as ours, and I am delighted that we have had a number of candidates join us through your agency. They bring a wealth of ideas and commitment and not surprising to me they have a flexible attitude, a lot of energy, a willingness to take on extra responsibilities and an excellent attendance record.”

– John Ashelford, CEO Hospice in the Weald

“It has been nothing but a good experience doing business with TRCRC.

Brian is responsive to our needs and has taken the angst out of recruitment. He is prepared to do a deal, and has made the process of recruitment affordable, which is so important for charities like Spadework who are working on limited budgets.

Well-done and best wishes for the future success of TRCRC”.

Norman Davidson, General Manager, Spadework

“My experience with normal recruitment agencies was not particularly good. TRCRC seemed different, they were positive, helpful and offered good candidates and an excellent service. A great idea, well done Brian Kent!"

– Tony Smith, CEO Muffett Gears
