WHO WE ARE

Part of the AP Group and with a focus on permanent, temporary and contract staffing for junior to mid-management positions in the finance and commercial sectors, we have consistently delivered top quality recruitment solutions for nearly a quarter of a century! 

 

ABOUT US

Having worked in the finance industry in Guernsey, CEO Gina Le Prevost identified a gap in the market for a high-quality recruitment consultancy and formed AP Personnel in 1990 from an office in the centre of St Peter Port. The business was an instant success and we haven't looked back since! With growth in business, we’ve expanded and recently, started operation in Cyprus. 

We are delighted to be the recruitment partner of choice for an ever growing number of the Island's leading organisations and take great pride in offering our candidates the most exciting opportunities Guernsey, Jersey and Cyprus have to offer!

    Many thanks again and good luck with the hunt for one more."
