What we do
Over 5,000 candidates successfully placed? Success like this doesn’t happen by accident or magic. It’s mostly down to hard work and an unerring passion for everything we do.
A large part of that is meeting people and really getting to know them. We speak to more than 150 candidates a week, spending around 40 minutes getting to know each and every one. That’s why we often have the answer before you even ask the question. When we say ‘our talent is finding yours’, that’s no empty marketing claim. We have the track record and the ever-expanding pool of talent at our fingertips to prove it.
Our ServicesLike most businesses, you’re likely to want different levels of service from a recruiter at different times. That’s why we offer two alternatives: our Retained service is all about guaranteeing our clients get the best available candidate for the position, whereas our Contingent service is designed to offer you immediate access to the open talent market.
ContingentNeed someone fast, and truly excellent? Our Contingent service lets you tap straight into our existing network of talent, including the 150+ candidates our team are interviewing every week. Better still, you’ve nothing to lose as Contingent operates on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis.

What makes us different
It’s not just that we know lots and lots of candidates in the sector; we make it our business to know them better.
All of us can remember the candidate who interviewed brilliantly, but then wasn’t up to the job. Well, we pride ourselves on going deeper to prevent those candidates ever making it onto the shortlist. Not only do we spend ample time with every candidate to get beyond the veneer, we reference each one, assessing their performance against a line manager’s opinion and previous earnings. The more we worry about these kind of things, the less you have to worry about.
CollaborativeWe strongly believe that exceptional results are delivered by exceptional teams.
InnovativeIf you’re not always striving to move forward, then you’re falling behind.
FunDoing what you enjoy; transforming the futures of candidates; exceeding client expectations. What’s not to like?
PassionateWe are genuinely passionate about technology, people and changing lives for the better.
