Our aim was to create a recruitment consultancy that not only produced exceptional results but a consultancy that EVERYONE loves to work with.

  • negotiating pay and salary rates and finalising arrangements between client and candidates
  • offering advice to both clients and candidates on pay rates, training and career progression
