Even if an application isn’t through us, we’re firm believers of “what goes around, comes around” – so feel free to call us for a bit of help with your CV, some interview practice or just some advice. But, if you’re being represented by us, you won’t need to ask – we’ll be there every step of the way.

We work with clients of all shapes and sizes, and they’re based across the UK and all over Europe too.

If we've one piece of advice, it's this...

Don’t wait until you’re unhappy in your job to talk to us. By getting to know you now, we can call you when there’s a job we think you’ll love. That might be in a month, it might be in three. It might even be in twelve. But we need to understand what’s important to you before we can make the call that might change your life.

If you’re in more urgent need of a change, then hopefully we’re recruiting a role that’s right for you. Have a look at our current vacancies but also keep in mind that we can’t advertise sensitive positions, so make sure we’re aware of you! If we aren’t recruiting something that’s right for you, we can talk about being proactive with your search – combining our network and your talent to find prospective employers who could really benefit from your experience.

Interview Practice

The more interviews you go to, the better you perform. But that doesn’t help you if you’re going for your dream role and it’s your first interview in eight years! We can coach you, from the real basics right through to identifying possible job-specific questions and how to structure your answers.

Proactive Client Approaches

Our industries have some really specialist areas. That means that the right job for your experience might take longer than you want to wait to arise naturally. We can use your specialism to your advantage by approaching clients (confidentially, of course) who would see the greatest value from your experience.
