Our consultants have a wealth of recruitment expertise including salary benchmarking, writing job descriptions and the South West recruitment market.
The most important part of your business really is your staff. As specialist recruitment consultants in Exeter, we help leading businesses across Devon, Cornwall, Somerset & Dorset find the right people - time after time. We can do the same for you.
Technical skills, experience and education - they are important in any job. But the right attitude is equally important too. We look beyond JDs and CVs and we get to know our candidates as well as we get to know your business. In fact, we love finding out what makes our clients tick. And we insist on meeting each of our candidates face to face, to see the person behind the profile. That way we can bring you candidates that don’t just fit your technical requirements, but your culture too.
You’re busy. You don’t have time for the nuances of a recruitment campaign. We can manage the entire lifecycle of your project – end to end recruitment. We will liaise with you every step of the way to keep you in the loop.

Whether it’s designing a recruitment campaign for a niche opportunity, providing consultancy or separating the best from the rest through candidate testing and assessments, you can count on us with any type of talent acquisition or recruitment function. Full time staff, temp staff, interim, project managers or contractors: our extensive links across the South West enable us to find great talent for almost any type of vacancy.
