Be confident in your search partner

We have worked directly in successful start-up and scale-up businesses, so we have experienced your pain points first hand, and more importantly, have a track record of implementing the solutions.

Our searches go beyond traditional tools, and we combine the strength of our networks with the power of the latest technologies and real-time market intelligence platforms.

We provide diverse shortlists as standard; in 2020 and 2021, 50% of our placements were female or BAME candidates.  We believe in the power of diversity and inclusion and that it makes business more successful, but most importantly, it's just right.

Leadership hires can make or break your future success.  Our search process gives you the confidence you're hiring someone who will shape your culture and strategy and lead your team to deliver exceptional results.


The cost of a bad hire is no more acutely felt than in sales or acquisition marketing.  It can take years for market performance to recover.  We help you work out what type of salesperson you need and allow you to assess their suitability with confidence.
