We’ve completely rewritten how recruitment is done to make it quicker, easier and more effective for you. We’ll find you the best candidates possible, no matter where they are located or if they are actively job hunting. Our machine-learning-powered tech lets us easily narrow down the top talent without bias, leaving you with only the most relevant options.

Senior Appointments

Using retained search and extensive market analysis, we can find the most suitable senior leadership candidates for your organisation. From initial longlisting all the way through to offer negotiation and onboarding, we will have a dedicated team working exclusively on finding the perfect fit for your senior role.


Could your internal recruitment department be achieving more?

You pick and choose where and how we help.


Big projects require specialised teams and specialist recruiters. Rather than taking it in-house, you can leave everything to us. Whether it’s a team of two or 50, we’ll hire, onboard, manage and offboard them for a fixed monthly fee so you only need to be concerned about the quality of the service.


We offer our in-house payroll, onboarding, and contractor care services as a standalone solution for pre-identified candidates. This service offers different levels of employee care when payrolling for your remote employees in Sweden, France, the Netherlands, Spain, UK, Poland, and Ireland.


For internal recruitment, we embed our specialist recruiters within your organisation so you can access our expertise. Our flexible, scalable and low-risk solution builds on your technology, uses labour market data analysis to bring your internal recruitment strategy and delivery into the future of recruitment.

We think differently about recruitment

We’re not interested in providing a generic and 360 recruitment process; we excel at every service we offer. This means understanding exactly what hiring managers are looking for from candidates, then turning to our search experts to research where to find talent that fits these needs. It means understanding what each candidate is looking for through detailed screening, so we can secure the right talent for each client. It means working with elite recruiters who are specialists in their fields, so every step of the process is taken care of by an expert.

Whether you are looking for an agency solution, an outsourced support team or a senior appointment, our flexible and specialist recruiters will be there to provide you with exactly what you need. All of our talent solutions are built on what we excel at, so you’ll never be getting anything other than the best services.
