Who Are We?

We are a group of like minded recruitment and training professionals with extensive recruitment experience at senior level, both nationally and internationally.  We have spent many years indentifying roles for candidates and finding candidates for roles.  Having also trained recruitment consultants ourselves, we know exactly what recruitment specialists and employers look for in their ideal candidates – and it may surprise you!

As professional recruiters, we know that many candidates either never even get as far as an interview because of their CV or ‘shoot themselves in the foot’ when being telephone screened or interviewed simply by not being aware of how the process ‘works’ and what they need to know, write, ask and say (or not say!) to be successful.
