Steve Anderson Bio.

Prime Candidate was founded by Steve Anderson. Frustrated with the inequity of employment opportunities for the more mature worker, Steve brought together a senior team to formulate an approach that would create a more level playing field for mature job seekers – the result is a Social Enterprise using the name, Prime Candidate.

Steve is the designer of the Champion Age Diversity philosophy, providing practical applications and pathways for employers to access the skills and experience they need, and Prime Candidate is the custodian of the Champions Charter.

We know it’s all about the customer, and the Prime Candidate brand has a reputation for quality, integrity and innovation, resulting from many years of building relationships with clients based on trust and mutual respect. We recognise that people are the most significant asset. Many organisations claim the same but fail on their promise. We take great care to develop close, long-term people relationships that are underpinned with a mutual trust and understanding.
