How We Do It
Listen, Understand, Deliver
Our approach is based on listening to what our clients need and to identify, qualify and deliver the best people available. By fully understanding our customers' requirements we are able to supply resources known to us - often through previous use or by rigorous qualification, screening and referencing.
UK and Mainland Europe
Our support service to our contractors is comprehensive and results-based. Regular, documented contact ensures we are constantly evaluating the service and the consultants supplied and adapting as and when required. This sets us apart from our competitors.
Contractor Care and Permanent Relationships
Having offices in the UK and Holland, our company has over 15 years experience in the delivery of IT resources to clients throughout Europe. In mainland Europe, this requires knowledge of the local skills market and an understanding of the local labour laws to ensure the successful and compliant delivery of our recruitment services. Our relocation team also ensures that our consultants are relocated efficiently, enabling them to concentrate on the job in hand at our clients.
