The best recruitment company in the world. Really.

Recruitment Consultants / Managers London / Nationwide It’s true, just ask the people who work here.  Every single one.  And we’ve worked in more than a few. We don’t toe the line. We celebrate individuality.  We go to the gym in the day. We take our children to school. We leave early for our hobbies.  The only thing that is regular is that our working patterns aren’t.  We have nobody to tell us how to be, or what to do. There are some things that we have in common. We all love recruitment, but we’re not keen on targets and KPIs. Oddly, despite no targets, we keep over-delivering on our realistic business performance aspirations.  Weird that. We deliver brilliant work. All the time.  That’s the key to it.  We are client focused first and by weaving our work flexibly into our lives we keep our energy high and our motivation strong.  So, we are successful and our clients love us. We have a great reputation with our candidates too, many refer us and want to work with us again as clients. We enjoy a strong reputation in the charity sector for delivering high quality retained recruitment projects. These range from […]
