Is poor recruitment hurting your business?

Hiring is difficult! It can feel like it's all just 'hit and hope'. Getting it wrong is expensive and a poor process will eat up your time. 

We specialise in Technical, Commercial & Leadership hiring for SMEs in the Technology and Engineering space. Offering varying levels of support to fit with your business needs and your own particular challenges. Helping you to deliver now, and setting you up for better results in the future. 

We keep good company...


Headhunting: But not as you know it...

Sometimes you have roles that would be good to fill and lots of different people could fit the bill. Other times you have roles that you must fill, and few people have what you need.

Headhunting - or Retained Search - is for the latter.

The trouble is, with old school headhunting, you carry a disproportionate cost risk and you're usually left in the dark throughout. 

We take the the risk on and offer a 12 month placement guarantee to give you clarity and confidence. We're crystal clear on our process and the work we do on your behalf.

What to know how that works?
