How we work

It’s a partnership. You and us. We find out what you need, and we go and get it.


Typical recruitment briefs range from three-month business critical projects to annual exclusive arrangements. You'll get the best results for your business when you trust our Talent Team service to deliver time and time again but we can also work on a contingency basis, where clients need one or two hires.

We're in it together. You pay an upfront fee, so you're invested and we're invested. And we guarantee a 100% fill rate.

It's the perfect option when you're looking to recruit business-critical roles, senior end roles and where there is a high risk attached to unfilled positions. And it goes further than traditional contingent recruitment.

Through our extensive industry network, enhanced media profile, topical events, bespoke video showcasing, large databases, and our network of contacts, we'll engage with not just the active, but the passive candidates - those who are looking, and those who aren't - to find the best person for the job. We'll also commit to dual branded advertising across the marketing campaign so we're using the combined power of both of our brands. 

  • A 100% success guarantee
  • Confidentiality assured
  • Dual branded approach (where required)
  • Higher return on investment due to securing the ‘right’ candidate not ‘any’ candidate
  • Binding agreement, you’re invested, we’re invested

  • Candidate Market Mapping
  • Competitor analysis

  • Over 90% reduction in attrition of successful hires
  • Longlist and shortlist data
  • Time mapped process, you’re in control

You pay us once we've placed a permanent candidate in your business.

It's a popular option for clients whose recruitment needs are unpredictable, and who want to avoid paying an upfront fee. It can involve a longer process than some of the other types of arrangements, but it has particular benefits. 

  • No upfront investment, therefore low-risk
  • Flexibility
  • You pay on results - great for first time agency users
  • No long-term commitment. If you need to close the vacancy, let us know and we'll put our search on hold. If there's no placement, there's no charge.

This is where we find you an individual contract worker, or an entire contract workforce, to step into your business. It's a cost effective and efficient way of filling your ad-hoc project requirements quickly and seamlessly via our expert contract consultants.

You will have one dedicated point of contact from our team who will take time to discuss what you need in detail, and liaise with the specialists in other areas on your behalf. We’ll make sure the contractor fully matches the skill requirements of the role and is a cultural fit for the business.

We have a team of contract recruitment experts who are always on-hand. And that really does means 24/7, 365. It's so we can make sure that you get the skilled people you need, when you need them.

  • The least possible disruption to your operation 
  • Immediate productivity
