Providing Recruitment Solutions to Business

Redford Cairns is a City of London based division of Peter Knight Consulting Group and is a high-quality premium multi-sector recruiter. The Group is also a provider of bespoke HR Consultancy and Outplacement Services / Career Coaching.

Redford Cairns are London and UK wide staffing specialists with over 30 years experience behind each executive partner. We offer top-tier temporary and permanent recruitment business consulting from the heart of the City of London.

Redford Cairns are focused on, but are not limited to the areas of technical recruitment such as Finance, Legal, Tech, Engineers, Research and Development as well as the Creative Industries.

We find you the ideal matched candidates in your sector using competency-based recruitment. We encourage you to contact our London office directly for an appointment to assess your needs and how we can help. By providing a fully flexible and bespoke service we can deliver to you, a much more focused and effective service using our own in-house specialists.

People are the most important asset of any business… but not if they are wrong people.

Redford Cairns are experts in their field and offer vast experience in finding the talent you need. Recruit the wrong person and they can adversely affect your business. Hiring the right person, with the right skills combined with strong positive motivation and your company is futureproof.


Well matched skills, knowledge and experience on a CV does not guarantee a good cultural fit, however.

We believe that a good cultural fit and aligned ambitions together with motivation are essential to long and successful people relationships.
