Tailor-made recruiting & guidance

Helping You Realise Your Potential

Aria’s passion for recruitment over the years has grown largely from seeing the delight on someone’s face when they have secured the ideal job, or indeed a position that they perhaps thought they wouldn’t find. Our focus is on building long-term relationships with our candidates, prioritising transparency and strong lines of communication. Our aim is to find you a job, as well as to source an environment that is right for you in the long term.

We work with a wide range of different companies from small entrepreneurial organisations to large corporates in and around the London area. Some of these include charitable trusts, membership bodies, creative & design agencies, and Royal regulatory bodies. See our current vacancies for a variety of permanent, contract and temporary positions.

Aria Recruitment Process

All our candidates are carefully selected using various methods such as high profile media advertising, social media platforms, and recommendations and referrals. For clients looking at specialist fields of expertise, we source specialist and academic job boards, and industry publications.

  • Pre-Selection  A timesaving process that allows us to review and short list applications with the most relevant and appropriate backgrounds.
  • In Depth Interviews  At this stage we perform in depth interviews and evaluations according to clients’ criteria. This allows us to narrow down a final shortlist of people who not only have the relevant skills and experience, but are also best suited to the core values of the department and the organisation.
  • Covering Letter   All candidates applying for permanent positions are required to present a personalised covering letter in support of their application, which should give a detailed description of transferable skills and evidence of further research and reasons for their application, adding value to the selection process.
  • Briefing  All candidates will have been fully briefed on every aspect of the role, department, and company culture, and will have a genuine interest in both the position and the organisation itself.
  • CVs   Candidates must provide a current CV, which we can advise on, providing up to date information on preferred content and layout. At Aria we do NOT provide a standard CV layout or actual CV formatting as we believe it should come from the individual themselves. However all the information provided will have been crosschecked at interview.
  • References Most employers prefer to take up their own references for permanent staff. However, we are very happy to do this at the clients’ request. We require 2 references from all temporary staff prior to assignment from their last 2 employers. These are confirmed in writing. In the event of immediate bookings we will obtain verbal references followed up with written references within 14 days.
  • Legal & Policy Requirements  All staff provided by Aria are required to supply 2 forms of official identification. We will verify the validity of all visas and work permits.
  • Induction  All temporary staff are provided with a handbook on confirmation of their booking in which the code of conduct for temporary Aria employees is clearly laid out.
  • Terms of Engagement   The temporary member of staff is then required to sign and keep a copy of the contract.

Candidate References

Having been unemployed for while I started to believe getting the job I wanted would not happen for me. Luckily I came across Aria Recruitment. Maria Prentice helped me so much. We re worked my CV and she helped me prepare for interviews, and as soon as that happened I started to receive phone calls and offers for interviews. I have no doubt that without her help I would not have got the job I am currently in- which is the exact job I was looking for. I highly recommend Aria Recruitment and Maria.


Maria offered a personable, unique and valuable service. She took the time to go through my CV and covering letter while giving me great feedback and tips before sending me to the client. Maria is very approachable, friendly and professional - such a pleasure to work with! In all my years in working with recruiters, Maria is by far the best I have worked with.


I was kept updated throughout the process and received prompt and courteous responses to any queries I had, which made the process easy to manage whilst still working in my previous role at the same time. I felt that my career and happiness were of prime concern and not only was it considered whether I would be the right candidate for the role, but also whether it was the right role for me. Overall, the application process undoubtedly made the interview stage much smoother and effective for me and played a huge part in me eventually securing the position. I would recommend without hesitation

Lauren Jennings | Case Manager/Solicitor

Maria showed not only an excellent understanding of our requirements but also a phenomenal tenacity to deliver the most exceptional candidates. Her in depth knowledge of the function and her ability to understand the nuances of a very demanding role meant that she delivered exceptional candidates on time and with the most thorough of briefings”. 

I would not hesitate to recommend Maria and her company to anyone needing an exceptional, motivated recruiter who really understands her market and her client’s needs.

Symon Hughes | Resourcing Project Consultant

I would recommend Maria at Aria recruitment without hesitation …on a number of occasions, she has taken the time to understand not just the details on the post to be filled but also to ensure that the individual will “fit” with the rest of the team. Whist this is critical in a smallish team, I think it is invaluable in any workplace. Additionally Maria has always kept me updated as she goes through the often time consuming search for the right person whilst not burdening the organisation with interviewing more than a selection that she has often honed down to a manageable few.

Gerda Goldinger | Legal and Regulatory Director

Maria is a delight to work with. She is honest, thorough and totally reliable. Being fully aware of the needs of our business, Maria sends us only the best candidates that are a true fit for the position.
