Our database of active candidates is the largest of its kind in the industry: We combine this resource with our extensive professional and personal networks to give you access to an unrivalled talent pool.
The majority of our staff are former property industry professionals: We will provide a best in class service by combining our recruitment expertise with our property industry knowledge.
Speed of delivery is absolutely key to the recruitment process: We recognise that when you have a vacancy, you need it filled quickly. We guarantee that there will be action within 48 hours of a vacancy being registered, and we will update you at least every 48 hours when instructed by you.

We recognise that recruitment is not your “day job” and many of our candidates’ existing jobs preclude them from discussing their careers during the working day: All of our consultants are available whether first thing in the morning or last thing at night.
The Right People
We will only introduce candidates that we believe are right for you and your business: Not just people with a strong CV.
