Why our clients use us

To be a successful recruiter, you need to know your market inside and out. With almost two thirds of our workforce coming from the property industry, we have a huge amount of knowledge between us as well as first-hand experience working for many of our clients. We pride ourselves on going the extra mile to provide up to date and useful information to both our candidates and clients alike.

We set ourselves incredibly high standards ensuring that throughout any recruitment process we are thorough, consistent and accessible. Confidentiality is of the utmost importance to us, as is a reciprocated level of commitment from both candidates and clients. One of the most important steps when representing any new candidate or client is meeting them and understanding the bigger picture around the brief, the brand, the person etc.

Honesty is of course best policy. We will always look to offer honest and constructive advice around your hiring strategy and your competitive positioning. It is very important to us that we give an accurate and honest reflection of any business that we represent, and we will work our hardest to ensure the candidate is well-prepared and well suited to you and your team upon arrival for interview.
