What we offer


Why work with us

We’re a recruitment agency. But a recruitment agency with a difference. In fact a few differences.

Exclusively flexible. We’re 100% dedicated to professional part-time and flexible roles for all sizes of business across a wide range of business sectors and professions. A flexible recruitment agency in short.

We’ve got privileged access to a unique community. Across our local areas, over 10,000 flexible professionals have asked us to help them find rewarding flexible roles. Over 50% of our registered candidates (we call them ‘members’) are not active in the job market or registered elsewhere. We support their development with free events, workshops, advice and guidance and in return they spread the word about Ten2Two.

We’re experts. Recognised in the UK as one of the leading flexible resourcing companies, people and clients like working with us we know what we’re doing and what they need.

We are local. We operate in and understand your local area and we become part of your local community, networking with local business and supporting local causes.

We’re real people. Not just online. We talk, meet, facilitate, support and advise.

There’s a lot of support waiting for you. Whether you’re a business or someone seeking part-time or flexible professional work, we have plenty of advice and guidance ready for you.

We’re business professionals helping businesses and professionals. Our independent teams have many years of professional business experience. We understand how businesses work and we’re attuned to the needs of professionals seeking flexibility in their lives.

And we do recruitment. We help clients find the right person whether it’s someone to join a business for the long-term, take on a project or provide occasional expertise whenever needed.

And we provide an end to end service. We handle every stage of the flexible recruitment process for our clients so they take advantage of our experience, save their precious time and make fewer mistakes. Our approach is similar to an Executive Search model rather than high-street agencies or online recruitment sites

Flexible Recruitment Working Options

Some jobs are not right for part-time working when the employee works only two or three days a week. But why not consider employing someone who can do four or five hours every day? That way, they are never more than a couple of hours away from their desk or from returning a client’s call and never have to miss important meetings.

There’s a whole range of flexible working options that could suit your business and your specific flexible recruitment requirements:

Format Example
Part time week 3 full days per week, 9.00am to 5.30pm Delivers reduced hours where there’s no daily operational restrictions
Part-time days Reduced daily hours, 5 days per week e.g. 9.00am-3.00pm Where daily attendance is preferred e.g. client facing role
Nine day fortnight Working full days but 9 days instead of 10 over a fortnight Delivers cost saving and flexibility for the employee with little loss of capacity
Condensed hours Full time hours condensed into 3 or 4 longer days Delivers cost saving and flexibility for the employee with little loss of capacity
Staggered Hours Full time hours over different times, i.e. 7am-3pm Offers flexibility for the employee with no loss of capacity
Short term/medium term contracts To cover specific fixed-term projects or roles When a new permanent employee is not required
Working from home Some or all of the role can be worked from home Across full or part-time hours where the person’s not required in the office
Local job – Zero / Reduced travel Full time working but employee saves many commuting hours per week through working locally Recruiting local professional people attracts a wider talent pool

There’s a range of options that may suit your needs. We’re happy to meet and understand your business and your specific requirements. Occasionally, this results in a total change of role or working pattern. We’ll use our expertise to help you work out the best flexible recruitment option:
