Working With You

Whoever we are dealing with, be they clients or candidates, we treat everyone with warmth and respect. We challenge when necessary and offer counsel when appropriate.


We have a rich mix of clients who have worked with us over a long time reflecting the speed with which we learn about their businesses and earn their trust as a long term recruitment partner. Sometimes clients have been former candidates or they have been introduced to us by their colleagues or other clients; we move with our clients as they move between organisations.

Irrespective of how or why, whether it is an individual or a group within a large organisation, we treat everyone in the same way. We listen well, we challenge appropriately, we conduct ourselves with probity and always in a professional manner. Ultimately though, our clients prefer to work with us because we deliver.


We receive great feedback from our candidates. We do what we say we are going to do. What does this mean? We reply to all your communication in a timely way and we give you honest feedback after meetings.

We do this in a supportive and constructive way (we're told we are the “warmest” Search firm). We keep you informed throughout an assignment and we get back to you with a decision or with feedback as soon as we receive it. Believe it or not, we are told this differentiates us from our competitors!!

Client Practices

To meet our Clients' needs most accurately, our consultants work in practices defined by industries and functions, many of whom have had prior executive-level experience. Team work is critical to our way of working so often a sector expert will be accompanied by a colleague, often a functional specialist, to offer the greatest combination most appropriate for the client's requirements.
