We’d love to develop our partnership with you and thought you might be interested in this candidate’s experience.

Most of our relationships are a result of recommendations and referrals. A lovely way to grow a business!

If you are looking for a knowledgeable, people centered Consultancy to help your growth, recruitment and retention needs, let’s talk.

Arrange a confidential meeting


  • We are experts within our sector. Each of our Consultants have over twenty years experience within finance recruitment, in our specific geographical areas & we are extremely well networked.

Free Advice

  • Everything we do for our clients is with the aim of building a long-term relationship and not simply about a one-off placement. To ensure that is the case, our advice and consultancy side is always free.

Genuine consultancy (with a long-term, relationship approach!)

  • Whether discussing how your brand is going to be perceived by potential recruits, confidentiality, staff engagement, headhunting or training on many subjects connected to recruitment and retention, we always operate as an expert partner, not a transactional service provider. Our advice is always free!

Flat rate fees

  • We charge a flat rate of annualised remuneration for permanent recruitment and offer highly competitive charges for interim assignments. Our introductory rate doesn’t increase with salary levels and whilst most agencies will do this, we have never felt this to be a fair approach. You should always receive the same, high quality service regardless of the seniority of the role.

Solutions, NOT sales

  • We offer a range of customised solutions, including retained, contingent and alternative offerings such as 'retained-light'.

Free replacements

  • We offer a FREE replacement for all permanent recruitment. Ask us to find out more.
