Don't just recruit for your empty seats


of your staff are vulnerable
whatever the size of your organisation.


of your staff are superstars
they are the next leaders, Directors, or people who will move to do even greater things, and they will leave a big hole when they move on.


of your staff could be replaced
with more successful, more committed people who are a better fit in the role you want them to play. You’ve supported them, coached them and mentored them, but you BOTH know something needs to change; who blinks first?

We are sure, when you take a moment, you can see this in your organisation.

We would like to help you - work with a recruiter who thinks differently,
who doesn’t just fill empty seats.

About DP Recruitment

We believe people are the most important part of any business.

Finding them however, can be problematic as we are sure you already know.

Here’s where we can help. We have been recruiting for 15 years, finding hundreds of candidates in the process, some of them are now asking us to help recruit for their own businesses!

So what makes us stand out? We don’t treat recruitment as simply filling a vacancy. We find candidates that match your business. Who add value. Who will become real assets. We will not flood you with CVs, but will send you a select few great quality candidates that fit your business, and want to work for you. We have strong commercials and will have an option that works for you. We offer a very personal service, and get close to your business, becoming an extension of the recruiting team, we would love to help you.

I love sales, communication, and making a difference to businesses and individuals, I’m lucky to get all of this and more from recruitment, and I am passionate about it.

I really like all tech and media, I started in selling mobile phones in 1993 so I have seen a lot of change, incredible evolution and growth.

My strength lies in finding and identifying the right person for a vacancy (sending quality CVs, rather than quantity).

I use many years’ experience of both tech and recruitment to understand what a business is looking for in a new employee, searching and sourcing for the right candidates using networks, social media, referrals and job boards to individually find the best person for a vacancy.

I have also had fantastic success headhunting for very specific individuals and roles.

My most important role is Dad to Ryan 7, and Liam nearly 4, my aim is to make them the best young men they can be.

I’d love to chat to you about anything recruitment, get in touch.

How we work

The closer we work with you, the better the results. Everything we do is about communication at every step of the process, the clearer, more frank and frequent conversations gives the best results. Everyone is busy, but we will talk with you anytime of the day or evening to get the best results.

References & referrals

The majority of our business comes from referrals, both client and candidate, it is really important to us that we build long term, strong, honest relationships with clients and candidates. We have built up a valuable network over the last 15 years, here are some recent comments from clients and candidates;

Darren placed me into a new role at an exciting tech firm in London. He was proactive and accommodating, taking the time to understand my strengths and ultimately helped me find the perfect role in under a month.


Having decided to change roles, it was fantastic to have the support and guidance from Darren, in finding the right opportunity.  Everything was well planned, prepared and although we never met face to face, I felt that Darren knew exactly what I was looking for in a new career.  Darren and I spoke regularly, sometimes at times of the day that suited me, and it wasn’t long before an opportunity was established, that we both knew was the perfect fit. In my new role as Head of Sales, I have no doubt in recommending Darren, and fully expect that in time, I will be calling upon his expertise to help me grow my sales resource.


Darren is a businessman who recruits high calibre talent; he understands how investment opportunities work and how to sell them to candidates. He has tenacity, great levels of communication and works as a trusted extension to our team. I look forward to working with him on various projects in the future.

Darren takes the time to understand the business, not just the role that’s being recruited, but the goals and culture of the organisation so the candidates are the right fit. He’s always friendly and professional, and willing to go the extra mile to ensure our needs were met. Darren worked with us to fit in with our busy schedules, which isn’t always easy! I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Darren or using him again to find a candidate.

Darren first contacted me back in 2012. Straight away Darren did not come across as a typical recruitment consultant. Darren asked questions about me, my aspirations, family and he did not over promise or talk about fantastic non-existent opportunities. I was also impressed with Darren’s industry knowledge and his ability to get to my real strengths and weaknesses. Only after finding out all this information did Darren then come back with realistic and suitable position options. This was done within a week.

Richard Burrage

I have worked with Darren over the last few years and during this time he has successfully filled a number of senior sales vacancies for us. At the start of our working relationship, when Darren told me he wouldn’t send lots of CVs over to me, but only the ones he felt we should hire, I was sceptical. However, he has done just that and the process had dramatically reduced the wasted hours sifting through candidates typically sent to me by recruiters. The ratio of the CVs he sends, to the candidates I am happy to interview, to the prospects I would, or indeed hire, are significantly better than any other recruiters we have worked with in the past.

Jon Barnes


Darren came highly recommended to us during a period of significant growth and change. He worked very closely with our interim Director and quickly found 2 senior sales personnel and a head of telemarketing who brought with them vast amount of industry knowledge. These swift and highly appropriate appointments allowed us to forge ahead quicker than planned with our business objectives. Darren also secured the appointment of the General Manager to assist in steering the rapidly expanding ship.  Darren’s ability to find the right person at the right time was critical in allowing us to keep our investors happy.  His consistent frank and honest lines of communication, meant we knew where we were, at all times during the interview and recruitment process.

Stuart Avory

The Darren Peck difference is all about communication. Upfront he takes the time to ask insightful questions and really listen to the answers, so he gets under the skin of the brief. When we have a candidate in the process, Darren will liaise directly and concisely at whatever time’s convenient for the client. I’ve had many conversations with him over breakfast, dinner and running between meetings, enabling me to get on with my day job. And finally, when closing, his precise understanding of fit between candidate and client, saves both wasted time and effort by ensuring the proper expectations are set on both sides. 

James Bagan

Its refreshing to deal with someone who actually takes the time to understand our business, from the ground up & embrace the importance of the cultural fit of candidates in our business. I think we have a 1 in 3 hire rate off your CV’s! Your selective & qualitative approach really works for us & you seem to find people that are of a high calibre that no one else can find. Communication is clear & direct, with a personable touch, which suits me in my busy line of work. Thanks again Darren & please stay in touch.

Arran Kirton


Darren was recommended to us as we were completing Private Equity investment and restructuring our business. We had to be agile and have significant impact in key areas of the business quickly. Darren helped us shape the recruiting brief, process and requirements and then sourced senior candidates in new business sales, account management, head of marketing and head of social media. The success and relationship Darren generate, means he is one of the first to contact when you have recruitment requirements.
