About ERA

A new kind of employment agency.


So who are
Ethical Recruitment Agency?

ERA is a socially responsible employment agency for North East Lincolnshire – all of our surplus is used to support community projects and our members. We have listened to what people want and developed an employment agency that does things a little differently.

Developed by Centre4, we are community-led and we provide a personalised service to help people get in to work. To do this we support local people to:

  • find temporary and permanent jobs,
  • gain the right skills for local job opportunities through training
  • get valuable experience and build confidence through community projects and overcome barriers they may have, either getting, or staying in, employment

“To change the face of recruitment by making people our focus, standing by our ethical values
and not for profit ethos;
always with our community and local business at the heart of our vision”


Investing in people

At the heart of ERA is a belief that we should invest in people to help them become the work ready worker that businesses are looking for. We do this through training and encouraging involvement in community projects as well as by placing people into temporary and permanent employment. If we do this successfully we help the local area to become economically and socially stronger. Any surplus we make is reinvested in the skills and personal development of our members and into community projects.


We will show kindness, care and a willingness to help others in all that we do.


We will be honest, truthful, open and sincere to everyone we work with and for.


We will admire, value and regard others and ourselves.


We will include and be fair to everyone.


We will do what we say we will do.


We will support others to be stronger.

Our commitment to our members is that we will find you the right type of job that matches not only your skills, but also your personality, preferences and aspirations.
