About Us

Recruitment Specialists

Athona is a leading UK recruitment agency providing staff to the Medical, Healthcare, Nursing and Education markets.

At Athona Recruitment, our recruitment consultants specialise in niche areas so that they can really understand the needs of both candidates and client. And above all, we know we are affecting futures. The patient on the operating table or the child in school. We never lose sight of that.

Since 2003, we’ve been working with large and small clients focusing on their specific, niche areas of recruitment. We started by fulfilling a demand for a consultancy to provide experienced, high calibre anaesthetists nationwide. By employing a team of ethical, professional recruiters who are undeniably experts in their field, it wasn’t long before we were servicing all niche professions within the Medical market.

Applying the same principles, we used our experience and knowledge to open EducationHealth and Nursing divisions, each servicing their respective market sectors.

Thanks for visiting our website; we hope this is the start of a long and fruitful relationship.
