Our track record

“The candidate long list was impressive – all interviewees were appointable. Two were taken to second interview. We appointed 3 months ago and our new FD is great – fits in well with the team and is highly capable and dynamic”

“He assisted me in defining the role title (to appeal to good candidates in the market) and then in writing the job specification requirements to bring out the real traits I needed for a Group Commercial Controller role, focusing on what success would look like”

“The analysis on my recruit reaffirmed by decision and gave me a valuable on boarding guide to help optimise my recruit’s progress once joining the team. I would recommend the use of this service for anyone making a critical appointment within their team”
