We offer a strategic approach to Professionals wishing to passively search the jobs market.

When we find suitable opportunities, we will pass them on to you. If you wish to progress, we will release your CV to the potential employer and start a recruitment process.

There will be NO PRESSURE to have an interview if you are not interested in the job.

Active Job Search

Some people want a more active approach to their job search.

• We ask what type of opportunity you are searching for
