About the South West HR Network

The South West HR Network was set up in 2019 by Sarah West Recruitment (starting out as The Exeter HR Network) as a way of bringing together professionals from in and around the City, at all different stages of their HR career. As well as having the opportunity to learn from expert speakers on a range of topics, the Network enabled members to develop links with others in similar roles and share their ideas and experiences too.


The switch to virtual meetings in 2020, enabled the Network to broaden its reach further, attracting new members from across the South West, who’ve brought with them an even greater mix of organisations and industries, including some of the region’s biggest and well-known. However, the premise of the Network remains the same; to provide an opportunity to learn, share expertise and develop links with others in similar roles.

At the end of 2020, Sarah West Recruitment and Nash & Co Solicitors partnered to manage and deliver the Network, going forwards. The group changed its name to The South West HR Network to reflect the ever-increasing membership and the desire to help support more organisations throughout the region.

Sarah West Recruitment is an independent agency, based in Exeter, that has a reputation for delivering outstanding, quality service to the candidates and clients we work with. We specialise in permanent roles, within Sales, IT and Technical, Marketing, Office Support, Finance, Customer Service and HR.


We work with a large number of clients from a broad range of industries – from start-ups to those that are well established, organisations with local and national coverage, to those with global reach.


Working in the South West for as long as we have, hiring managers have access to our extensive network. More than being able to boast about having a large virtual network of contacts, or a database packed with CVs from people we’ve never met, our team meets with each candidate and invests time getting to know them properly.


If you’d like to know more about us or have questions about how we work, you can reach us on 01392 873813.
