From day one we set out to build a business whose cornerstone was, and still is, about employing the best people in the market.
The thinking was quite straight forward. If you employ the best people in the market they will deliver the best service, they will build a reputation for quality and generate exceptional levels customer loyalty. They will attract the best in the market who will want to work with them. I called it “Champions League Recruitment”. If you want to play Champions League, you need to join the best.
Our Leadership team delivers complex and challenging Retained Search Assignments and they act as Account Directors for all of our best clients. They know the market and have good contacts in senior roles across their industry. They can advise and guide and are well placed to deliver results in a competitive, difficult and rapidly changing market.
We have created a mature and professional environment where there is a great deal of teamwork, support and expertise on hand, where everyone really contributes to the success, future and direction of the business and where the teams work together and support each other.
We have a current team of around 40 successful recruiters working from three offices and the average sector recruitment experience across our team leaders is over 12 years. This has created a mature and professional environment where there is a great deal of teamwork, support and expertise on hand, where everyone really contributes to the success, future and direction of the business and where the teams work together and support each other.
