Recruitment Solutions

We offer hybrid recruitment solutions for private equity and smaller sell-side organisations with limited or stretched HR teams - start-ups, overseas firms wishing to establish a UK/EMEA presence, scale-ups, and projects. Typically a mixture of on-site (or dedicated virtual) recruitment coordination, bespoke consulting around recruitment strategy and off-site candidate sourcing by our experienced team of search professionals and researchers. These solutions allow firms to both manage and contain search costs, go directly to market/build brand - and manage the process as if it were ‘in house’.
