About Us


At Hanning Recruitment, our passion for property has inspired us to redefine real estate recruitment.

Our strategic approach, combined with our enviable black book of contacts and industry experience, allows us to open doors that others can’t - identifying top talent and only putting forward the most appropriate candidates.

The team is led by Toby Speke who, together with his team, have over a decade’s worth of industry experience across recruitment and the wider property sector. They have joined forces at Hanning Recruitment in order to take greater ownership of the entire recruitment process and to establish best practice within the industry, drawing on their unparalleled market knowledge of both the Commercial and Residential property sectors, as well as an extensive network of contacts.

We believe in building long-term, strategic partnerships with clients and candidates alike, with successful placements bringing greater business benefits.

We understand what makes our clients and candidates tick and we want to share our insights and market connectivity to ensure successful hires and prosperity for all parties.
