Alastair Tulloch

Founding Director

My career in recruitment started 19 years ago and I haven't looked back since…. I love it! I have always been passionate about the Care and Education sectors, my Aunty was a headmistress and I have a brother with Asperger's who lives in residential care. I understand the impact the staff we recruit have on the lives of the people they support.

In my previous position, I was the UK head of operations for Randstad Care. I was responsible for the operation of the care business, working directly with the managers and internal departments, to ensure an exceptional level of service was delivered to all our clients and workers.

In 2014, Alun and I were sat in the Millenium Stadium watching Wales play Scotland in the Six Nations. With a Guinness in hand, discussions turned to our careers and futures. What transpired was we shared a passion and love for recruiting in our sectors but something was missing... our jobs had become more about delivering returns for shareholders rather than providing a quality service to the people we supported. Filled with Dutch courage Vetro was born.

Vetro, the Italian word for glass, represents our values, what we do and how we work. Our name provides the foundations upon which we built our company – providing a clear and transparent recruitment process to the Health, Social Care and Education sectors. Vetro Recruitment is now a leading recruitment agency in the UK, with offices in South Wales, North Wales, Liverpool, Bristol, Southampton and Ipswich.

We have successfully tendered to be framework suppliers to supply contracts including the NHS, Schools and many more national and SME clients across England and Wales.

I am extremely proud of the Vetro team. They have supported our clients and schools with their temporary and permanent needs and have found work for thousands of workers across the UK.

We invest a considerable amount of money into training our employees and agency workers (BILD accredited), to make sure we support all our clients with 5-star service. You can see from our hundreds of 5-star Google and Facebook reviews that we practice what we preach.

We are very proud of our business and have won multiple awards, including the Wales Fast Growth 50 award for the Financial and Professional Services sector 2019 and 2020.
