About Us

It’s all about our relationships with people.

Why Mego?

We are established recruiters in the South West, specialising in manufacturing and the service industries around airports. We are based in Totnes with an office in the heart of the town right next to the River Dart. As most of us sail, kayak, paddle or swim (or just enjoy looking at the river) that seems most apt. True to our ethos as embedded recruiters, we also have an office at Bristol Airport where we are closely involved in services such as driving, passenger services and security.

We delight in being different. Our clients are our priority, and that puts customer service and commitment right at the top of our values. We know that’s easy to say, but the proof is in the longevity of our client relationships. We’ve been working with most of our clients for over ten years and some have been with us for a lot longer.

Different by design. Better as a result.

Trust

We are so much more than simply recruiters. Many of our clients have worked with us for years and we’ve built up deep levels of trust and understanding with them. As fully embedded recruiters, we’re part of the Operations team and are trusted to manage our staff on-site being accountable for delivering operational outcomes. We also manage staff deployment, carry out on-site induction, work with managers on forward planning and of course, help them with the ebb and flow of workforce supply requirements.

Tailored

We recruit for both temporary and permanent roles and for some clients, people we recruit can move from temporary to permanent employment. It’s a cliché, but every client needs something tailored to their circumstances and we have the experience and flexibility to support businesses with complex and changing workforce requirements.

Ethical

People matter to us. We’re an ethical and fair employer ourselves, and we expect the same from the clients we work with. Our average contract length is over 10 years, which is rare in the recruitment industry. We attribute that to our outstanding track record of compliance, accountability, transparency and totally ethical approach to business.
