History of Burman Recruitment

Burman Recruitment was founded in August 2018 by Alexander Chapman and Bradley Burr. After noticing a gap within the Higher Education market to provide a more personable and dedicated approach to customers, they decided to open Burman.

In January 2020 our third Director, Jonathan Thompson joined to improve our permanent offering. Today, Burman Recruitment continue to work successfully within Higher & Further Education providing both Contract & Permanent resource.

We created Burman to provide a specific recruitment solution to the Higher Education sector whilst being able to deliver invaluable information and a platform to share knowledge across the industry.
