Our Services


We fully understand the importance of a core permanent workforce to maintain continuity and develop the business. Our technical knowledge and extended network allow us to locate highly skilled candidates with competencies that are aligned to your business. With options to work on a retained, exclusive or contingency basis, we can tailor a solution which works best for you.

At the start of any project our consultants will provide an insight in to the current recruitment market, any potential challenges and the latest salary expectations for such a role. We will always conduct ourselves with professionalism, providing potential candidates with a detailed overview of the role and the environment they would be working in and provide clients with regular updates throughout the assignment.


Contracting provides attractive opportunities for candidates, not only the obvious rewards of self-employment but it also enables personnel to develop their skills by moving from one interesting and challenging role to the next. This flexibility is also highly beneficial to companies, enabling them to quickly and cost effectively recruit specialists for one-off projects of limited duration.

We have access to very experienced contractors able to start with little or no notice and will work quickly to locate the best candidates. Whether candidates operate through a Limited Company or Umbrella, we will manage both administration and compliance to ensure a seamless recruitment process.


There is often a long delay between the appointment and the start date of a senior-level candidate owing to the need for the candidate to work an extensive notice period or the imposition of time-limited restrictive clauses on the candidate. Companies are often unable to wait for what can be up to six months. Interim candidates fulfil this need, and the market for such candidates is buoyant.

Our extensive network of potential candidates enables us rapidly to identify individuals able to work on an interim basis, and following a comprehensive screening suitable candidates will be presented with full transparency of costs and availability.


For any company executive-level candidates are usually the ones who make the most impact on the success of the business. Candidates who can fulfil such roles are in short supply and are widely sought by companies.

We will work closely with clients to locate suitable executive-level candidates. We will act as the voice
of our client throughout the candidate engagement process. All candidates will undergo a rigorous selection process before being presented for further consideration. We can arrange psychometric and competency testing if required.

We take pride in our ability to identify and attract difficult-to-find candidates, thereby taking the stress out of the recruitment process.
