About us

Who we are

After a decade working in recruitment, the two of us decided to get our heads together and build a business where people would want to work.

We’re not quite chalk and cheese, but we’re really not that similar either. We like to think that some healthy debate makes our decisions better and our business stronger.

What we always agree on is that if we strive for what’s best for our customers, both clients and candidates, then everyone wins.
