About Us

Our Story

Why we do it

We want to support our clients in the successful delivery of their transformation initiatives, whilst being the go-to partner for People & Change resource; an increasingly critical element of any successful business transformation.  

We feel that the recruitment model is broken. Large agencies operate in a transactional manner and lack the experience to deliver successfully on assignments, whilst legacy search firms continue to provide a service that is both complacent and inflexible. 

What we do

Our experienced consultants deliver the highest calibre People & Change professionals, across the UK and Internationally, through our Interim Management and Executive Search services. 

We are passionate about providing an honest, flexible and high quality service. We build lasting relationships with our candidates and clients, and deliver outcomes that are both cost-effective and timely.
