How Did We Get Here?

From 2012 to 2019 our Management Team ran the high cost short term lender PiggyBank.

PiggyBank was an award winning short term lender, with a widely commended customer care team that was trained to speak with customers over the telephone, through email, live chat, and two-way SMS.

PiggyBank’s customer service agents were highly skilled individuals, offering FCA regulated application and collections support, as well as vulnerable customer care to help those in particular distress.

This customer care team was recognised by awarding bodies for their outstanding levels of customer service, such as at the CICM British Credit Awards. Other areas of the business were also awarded similar accolades, such as the in-house tech team for their exceptional development of a bespoke CRM system.

Throughout PiggyBank’s history, we recruited over 200 members of staff - hiring such a large number of employees in a seven year period ensured that we quickly learned what a great candidate looked like.

We furthermore have expertise in training and auditing new and seasoned candidates, so we understand how to finely tune each employee’s learning experience to become an outstanding company representative.

Knowing training inside out led us to create Pineapple Recruitment– so that we could pass our knowledge to candidates and businesses in Dorset and Hampshire, and support them with their recruitment needs.

Our Values

Here at Pineapple Recruitment, we refuse to see candidates as just numbers - we will do our best to find you a suitable role, based on your previous experience, qualifications and future aspirations. As odd as it may sound, we don’t want candidates to continually use our services - we’re here to find you a permanent role where possible.

We have three core values at Pineapple Recruitment, which we never stray from:

  • Find the Right Fit: When it comes to your career, there is no ‘one size fits all’ option. We never settle for just ‘ok’, tailoring our recruitment service to suit the needs of both companies and individuals.
  • Promote Growth: Whether it’s our own organisation, within a business, or the career of an individual, we’re all about growing stronger and reaching potential.
  • Share Everything: We not only share our knowledge and expertise, we also work together internally, sharing challenges and achievements.
