Why Work for Us

Why work for Thornhvac?

A different type of recruitment agency

Forget everything you’ve heard about recruitment companies in the past. At Thornhvac we do things a little differently.

We’re a niche engineering recruitment consultancy working with employers in the HVAC sector and because we operate in a specialist field we have to know our market really well. Our clients have a need for experienced sales and engineering talent and we pride ourselves on providing quality candidates rather than large quantities of CVs and applicants.

We are also a family business and with a new generation taking the helm we want to expand into adjoining sectors within engineering such as Building Services and Manufacturing.

Working for a niche practice like ours can be extremely rewarding. We focus on small sectors which means you’ll get to know your clients and candidates really well. We prefer to focus on building relationships rather than cold calling earning a better return from better service and relationships.

We support flexible working and have the systems and infrastructure in place to facilitate this. You can work from home or the office or a mixture of both.

Ours is a team business and we work together to achieve company targets as well as the personal goals we set ourselves. Monthly team meetings encourage strong communication throughout the business and ensure each member of staff feels valued and listened to.

Career Development

We believe that business success depends on having quality people working together to achieve common goals. Personal development is crucial to this process which is why we are committed to investing in the training and development of our employees.

The HVAC sector is currently extremely buoyant and demand for our services is high. This is an exciting and evolving industry. We are now identifying additional engineering sectors that are likely to generate excellent opportunities for experienced recruiters to join and develop their career with us.

As we grow we want to be able to facilitate your career progression whether that is to be a highly paid successful recruiter, a team leader successfully developing others, or a future director of the business.  In short, if you have the work ethic and aptitude, we have the opportunity. 


Thornhvac is based at Carrwood Park, a family run, state of the art office park in a semi-rural location on the outskirts of Leeds.

We are fortunate to work in beautiful surroundings amongst acres of parkland and with the benefit of free on-site parking.

Carrwood Park has the added benefit of being easily accessible from the A1, M1, M621 and M62 making it an ideal location for anyone travelling from East Leeds, Garforth, Wakefield, Wetherby or Selby and the surrounding areas.
