Permanent Staff

Exceptional People are experts at sourcing even the most elusive candidates for your permanent vacancy.

Does your business have a vacancy for a particular skill-set which, whilst essential to the success of that business operation or initiative, is also proving extremely hard to source?

If your PSL is failing then it's time to take a fresh approach.

By understanding exactly what you are looking for, the challenges you have faced in sourcing that person so far we have a platform for an open discussion about how that challenge can best be addressed.

We will then work tirelessly to source the best solution, usually resulting in success on our first shortlist proposal.
