About Us

For many HR professionals, we will need no introduction. Since 1979 we have been sourcing the best HR talent locally and globally. We have proven expertise in every sector, including financial services, technology and communications, retail, public sector, and professional and business services.

Our Approach

Our approach has developed over three decades at the forefront of HR recruitment consultancy. In that time we have refined our methods and perfected our processes.  We are proud of our collaborative working style and the truly consultative approach we take to HR Recruitment. 

We take our responsibilities seriously. As guardians of both our clients’ brands and our candidates’ careers, we understand the importance of a professional yet personal service, a balance we are committed to achieving. And that continued commitment is why we have been supporting many of our clients and candidates for over 30 years.
