Why Clients Use Us

As a niche consultancy, we will tailor our process to fit with your requirements.


  • We Are Made To Measure

    As a boutique we have the advantage of not needing to chase volume and scale. That means that our most experienced practitioners in the business will deliver for you. And we mean really deliver – for us it’s personal. Each of our consultants feels a keen sense of pride and desire to be the best in the marketplace but we recognise that we are strongest as a team. We share ideas, best-practice and thought leadership with one another, to ensure our clients benefit from our constant collaboration.

  • Our Network

    Our success hinges upon the quality and diversity of our network generated from this personal approach. Our connections extend to the business leaders from beyond the HR community, so we really understand the transformational pressure on businesses and the real role CEO’s of today want their HR leaders to play. We continually cultivate relationships with both active and passive HR candidates. We embrace digital and social networks to keep connected. We also receive great referrals from our business and HR Networks, assisted, as ever, by the trust in us garnered by our reputation.

  • The Unusual Suspects

    We understand the importance of relevant sector experience but we also appreciate the synergies between certain industries. We challenge our clients to employ HR leadership from outside of their sector and in certain cases from outside a traditional HR background. No two HR Search assignments are the same and neither is the talent pool we create for each project.

  • We Reflect Well On You

    Our candidates become our clients. We always make time for career advisory discussions. A candidate’s recruitment experience reflects on the employer’s brand. We are objective, results-focused and exceptional brand ambassadors. Your EVP should be viewed as your recruitment currency and in an increasingly competitive talent community and the era of instant social feedback, the quality of this experience is under the spotlight like never before.
