In these policies we explain to our colleagues how we collect, use, disclose, and protect the personal data we obtain. These policies, as well as our procedures and security measures, are regularly reviewed in order to ensure that we always follow best practice standards.

We work in genuine partnership with our clients, remaining communicative and transparent throughout the appointment process. We're also a close-knit team, not just a collection of individuals. We collaborate and share expertise across sector boundaries. 


We’re not 'salesy'. We ensure that our clients meet the colleagues who will actually lead our work for them. We hire people who are genuine and personable. We value being trustworthy and approachable.


We treat people as people , not as a means to an end. We’re fair and straightforward in our dealings with clients and candidates. We never 'blag'.  If we don't know something then we'll admit it. We also seek to practise what we preach .


Excellent search involves effective storytelling. We listen to the nuance of each brief, put bespoke research into every project, and think outside the box when sourcing great people. We're also continually on the lookout for innovative ways to use technology in the service of our clients.


We’re all about the details. We take in-depth briefings. We follow up leads and leave no stone unturned when searching. We hold ourselves to the highest quality standards. You can count on us to be thorough.
