Who we are

Who we are:

TFPL is the global market leader in recruitment and consulting within the knowledge and information sector. Established in 1985, the company provides complete solutions to knowledge and information problems – whether people, process or technology-related.

One of the secrets of our longevity is our track record of delivery; we have worked with some of the largest public and private sector organisations, helping them to achieve their goals with their information, knowledge and records. We are trusted advisors, able to support them through periods of change and to help them find, recruit and develop the best talent.

What underpins every aspect of our work is a commitment to working in partnership with clients, candidates and delegates to deliver an outstanding service across our three areas of expertise.

Our Values:

Our values are integral to how we work and approach each assignment, challenge and role. They are:

  • Aim for excellence – in everything we do
  • Work together – we can achieve more
  • Stay connected – relationships matter
  • Act with integrity – always do the right thing
  • Have fun – or what’s the point?
