About Us

The UK’s only bilingual recruitment specialists

We exist to connect people through language. We have matched over 5000 bilingual, multilingual and international candidates to career opportunities and projects across Customer Service, Finance, HR, Project Management, Sales and Marketing since 2009.

We place interim and permanent bilingual professionals into frontline and senior leadership roles to recognised brands and smaller, growing start-up organisations.

If your business is moving overseas, strengthening offices outside of the UK or needs help in better engaging your existing non-native English speaking customers, the Debonair Talent team will find you the right person.

We have a broad network of interim, permanent, part time and full-time candidates across
the UK.

Our teams know the frustration and impact of staff starting and then leaving. So we recruit for you like we do for ourselves, with professionalism, care and consideration.

We are proud to be part of the Debonair Family.

  • Over 450 languages and dialects including German, French, Polish, Italian, Bengali and many more. Bilingual professionals to help you better serve your customers and grow your business.
