What We Do

We are out there, every day, meeting hundreds of candidates, and really listening to what they are looking for. We share this information internally across our whole network of consultants, to quickly identify the perfect candidate when an opportunity becomes available.

If the right candidate isn’t already looking for a new role, we find them through market leading search and acquisition tools and then seduce them to the hiring table, so you can choose between the best available talent possible.

What Makes Us Different

We have a depth of industry knowledge and connection that is simply not there in younger firms, and impossible in huge multinational recruitment outfits.

We have been placing people in the industry for 25 years. We have placed many candidates in all of their career progressions, so we know them personally, and that helps us make the perfect connection, so that they thrive where we place them. We personally know and speak to hiring managers and speak to them weekly, so we know why people really left, and what individuals are really like to work for! Not just what they tell us … This helps us make the perfect placement by getting under the veneer of both candidates and cultures, resulting in less attrition through bad fit.
