We are ambitious

We've been an ambitious business from our inception. Growing by up to 50% in each of our first few years meant we needed staff with a similar outlook.  Our success story is still being written and we're always looking for like minded, hard working individuals to join us and create it.

We are a global company

With offices around the UK and over 100 staff dedicated to supporting recruitment experts such as you.  Whilst our business is in the UK, we don't mind where you work - you decide.  We are performance focused and look to invest in motivated, like-minded recruitment specialists. 

We are experienced

Each segment of our business is staffed with experienced, well trained, industry consultants who are well connected with their market sectors. New freelancers are able to draw on the collective experience of the business as well as a wide range of support mechanisms.

Our company culture

We actively encourage a "grown-up" culture; we want to attract dedicated individuals, that are motivated to deliver results.  So rather than pursue a micro managed culture of heavy KPIs, we give you the support needed to succeed, from technical and back-office to training and mentoring.

Join the UK's fasted growing network of freelance recruitment specialists.
