Our Story so Far

Elliot Scott Group was established in 2015 with one key ambition on becoming a market leader within our specialist recruitment sectors. Combining experience and drive by founding directors Elliot Benton and Scott Burns, the company quickly established itself by providing the highest standards of temporary and permanent recruitment services to their respective markets.

With quality and compliance being the top priority, our experience consultants help clients and candidates navigate through the ever-changing employment world by using their own personal experiences within our specialist sectors to offer an unrivalled recruitment service. Honest and reliable from the start, we value the strong partnerships we build with our clients and candidates by brining benefits including reduced time to hire, notable cost-effective processes, and an enhanced modern candidate experience.

In 2016 Elliot Scott Group was granted 'Authorised signatory' status by Gatwick Airport which allows us to issue and reference our workers for airside passes. As this department continued to expand it led to the formation of Personnel Referencing Solutions in 2019 which now deals with the references for Elliot Scott Group as well as for our other clients.

In 2023 Elliot Scott Group was excited to announce the opening of two new office; the first in Slough and second in Shoreham. We opened the new offices so we could be more hands on and personal for our great clients in the Heathrow Airport area and South Coast respectively.

Favourite 3 course meal:    

To start, my choice is Junglee Bhajis. Only a few places do them so whenever I see them they are always my first choice.

For the main course  a proper pie with proper pastry. Not fluffy puffy but a slab of crispy pastry surrounding lumps of meat that just melt in your mouth.  Ideally served with mash gravy and a mountain of fresh vegetables.

Dessert is crème caramel –  A proper homemade one not in a plastic pot. Heavy on the caramel though. It just slides down and slips into the gaps.

Favourite colour:  

Anything bright, especially colours that clash.

Favourite/Dream holiday destination:    

I'd like to visit Alaska and go mushing with a pack of huskies and skidooing in the mountains

Your idol and why:

I can't pick a single person as to be effective you need the  multiple skills of a team.

The team that has had the biggest effect on my family is definitely the 2003 England Rugby Team.  They gave my boys a passion for rugby and being part of a team which has stayed with my family showing everyone has a purpose.

What do you like most about working at Elliot Scott Group:

It's early days -  All is good so far! Everyone is friendly and the systems used really speed things up

My favourite 3 course meal would be; Buffalo chicken wings to start, ribeye steak with asparagus and truffle dauphinoise for main and sticky toffee pudding. The perfect combination of easy to cook and easy to serve.

Blue is defiantly my favourite colour, blue looks great on anything, cars, shirts and who doesn’t like a blue cocktail on holiday.

This is a tough one! On one hand I would love to travel to Texas, but I think Osaka would edge it. The food, the culture, it seems so simple compared to everywhere else.

I think my idol would be Arnold Schwarzenegger, his journey from early life to where he is now is inspirational. What he has been able to achieve from nothing is amazing, showing what hard work can achieve.

I most like the flexibility that Elliot Scott Group provides, I’m not tied down to a particular sector or region. You are left to make your own decisions and create business how you want, which creates a much happier work environment.
