Hire the right fit.
Hiring isn’t only about seeking the skills, experience and attitude to get the job done, but finding someone who can contribute to your company culture and growth. Because we work with you exclusively we get to know your business properly, so we can help you fill the gap for good.
Only meet vetted candidates.
We’ve heard too many tales of clients being sent scores of unvetted candidates who don’t fit the brief (or even want the job). We meet every single candidate – whether in-person or over Zoom – before we put them forward, so we’re sure they have real potential. We also actively say no to representing candidates, with a strict no d*ckhead policy in place.
Build your employer brand.
We authentically represent your brand by working with you to write bespoke job specs and adverts, and by helping you plan the end-to-end interview process. After all, a candidate's perception of your company starts with their recruitment experience.
Steer clear of job boards.
Unlike our competitors, we don’t rely on – or even use – job boards to fill roles. Instead, we use our strong industry network to carry out targeted headhunting based on personal recommendations and word-of-mouth.
Get end-to-end recruitment support.
From consulting on role specs, to advising on salaries, to making sure a successful candidate is all set up for day one, we’re here to help with everything from start to finish. So you can get on with doing what you do best.
Get support growing your business (even when you’re not hiring).
We build long-lasting relationships with our clients because we consider ourselves an extension of your team. With our years of industry experience and countless connections, we consult with ideas and insights that could help you develop all year round.Get help recruiting

“Chris was fantastic throughout the whole process of sourcing a Business Development Manager for us at CV Villas. Great communication, a refreshingly relaxed and open approach with no waffle and a shortlist of great candidates, many of whom we could have hired. Any recruiter should take the hard work out, but Chris went above and beyond”
