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
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
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!!

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.
We never underestimate the power of the network. Please submit your CV so we know who you are and what you have done. We will treat your CV with respect. We will only use it for our internal knowledge bank and will not share it externally unless you are part of an assignment (Interim or Permanent) and we agree with you beforehand.

areas (such as coaching and psychometric profiling) and taking every
opportunity to share knowledge while we network with people in our different

in a matrix organisation which gives us the ability to bring together experts
from our various sector, function and interim practices to provide the best
combined approach for our clients.
More than half our work is
international and we have placed senior executives in 65 countries (a number
which is growing every year).
