About First Future Recruitment

At First Future, we know that managers want to recruit motivated and qualified talent that quickly fits into the business, supporting them to get on with the job of manufacturing and delivering to the customer. It's easier said than done, as recruiting is more complicated than it seems, due to a lack of time, network, knowledge, or not having a robust recruitment process in place, which leads to a failure to recruit the staff needed and damaging the business in the process. To avoid this, managers have to seek help from recruitment agencies. 


Many recruitment companies who promise to help, often fail to deliver due to high staff turnover, lack of experience, inadequate training, or are under sales pressure to produce fees, taking on too much work and becoming spread too thinly. So how do the hiring managers know which recruitment company to work with that can serve them best?


This choice can be overwhelming for managers as there so many options and the consequences of making the wrong decision about which agency to work with can have dire consequences for their business and careers for many months. 

That scenario is plain wrong as there are genuine professional recruiters who can deliver the talent the hiring managers need and in a way that saves them time, money and a whole lot of stress and hassle. Wouldn't it be best if you worked with someone who has a proven track record of recruitment success and that you can trust to get the job done?



Hello! I'm First Future Director Keith Payne. With two decades of manufacturing recruitment experience recruiting staff for busy companies, I understand the complexities involved in operating a fast-paced manufacturing operation whilst trying to find the right people when and where they are needed most. 


I have successfully delivered hundreds of manufacturing recruitment projects, refining and improving my recruitment process for over twenty years. This experience, combined with a highly developed network of candidates ensures that my recruitment services have proven to successfully deliver the talented people my clients need when they need them most. 
I take your job brief and manage the whole process from start to finish. After understanding your staff requirements, we agree on a project timeline, then deploy a proven recruitment process and strategy to find the best talent available to meet your needs, whether its a Permanent, Contract or Temporary role. I'm a Fellow of the REC (FREC Status) in the UK, so I abide by the REC code of conduct further ensuring the highest delivery of service possible to you. I personally interview and skills check all candidates, then deliver a full candidate report with CV, then manage the entire interview process and complete all reference checking personally. I aim to provide between 3-5 qualified motivated candidates and CV's per role and have an efficient ratio of CV's sent, to interview to placement. 

When you choose to engage my recruitment service, you can have the peace of mind that you will be working with a genuinely independent recruiter, who is working in partnership to help you hit your targets and business objectives. You also have the peace of mind that I will still be here in 6 months, not having left to work with another recruitment company or worse, having left the recruitment industry entirely never to be seen again. I love my job of helping clients and candidates to find each other so that you can be sure of my reliability and non-sales focussed approach.  
To minimise my client's risk, I offer a full rebate guarantee scheme to ensure you have the peace of mind when engaging my recruitment service. Submit your vacancy now via the submit vacancy button or call me directly and I can start work immediately on identify the talent you need.
