How We Succeed


With our tight focus within orthopaedics we go that extra mile to deliver quality placements and look after your long-term interests.

We also provide Non-Executive Director (NED) searches. A NED can provide objectivity, independent insight and constructive challenge to executive directors, guiding strategy, performance and resources.

We are proud that our clients return and recommend us due to our approach, integrity and experience.

Our consulants are PPA accredited


To qualify a candidate match, we team up with Thomas International to offer personal profile assessments for candidates and report back with recommendations as to whether their work strengths and style match your organisation.
