What we do
We are an independent executive search firm specialising in finding and placing individuals who have a fundamental impact on successful business growth.
Integral to the Cambridge Technology Cluster
Our home is in Cambridge, one of the world’s leading technology & biotechnology clusters, and an economic powerhouse, with the fastest growth of any city in the UK. We’re proud of the role that we’ve played in the growth of the Cambridge cluster, and the game-changing technology businesses that it has spawned.
Our reach extends far beyond Cambridge and technology. Over the past 22 years we’ve supported the growth of some of the most successful companies to have emerged from the UK entrepreneurial market; introducing the best UK talent as well as bringing international talent into the UK. Many of our clients have subsequently raised significant funding or exited to multinational technology companies, and 20+ clients have gone on to receive £1bn+ valuations.
Team work is central to how we run our business, partner with our clients and engage with the wider business community. Our Directors and Researchers collaborate on every search that we undertake, working as a cohesive unit throughout the search process.
Commitment to diversity & inclusion
We have a long-standing commitment to equality of opportunity and we partner with our clients to build more diverse teams. Over the years we are proud to have implemented a number of diversity initiatives. Read more about our commitment to diversity & inclusion.
How we can help you
Whether your business is a start-up, scale-up or corporate looking to innovate, if you are focused on growth, we’d like to meet you. We understand the complexities of growing a business, building a team and attracting the right people who share your vision and ambition for success.
Finding & attracting impactful individuals
Whatever your specialism, we can find and attract the talent to help your business thrive. We’ve led searches across a vast and diverse range of technologies and are experienced in understanding new markets and technologies deeply and swiftly.
If your focus is the Cambridge cluster or the broader UK technology sector, we can support you. Whether you are a CXO interested in moving to Cambridge, an investor wanting to know more about the companies being developed here, or a founder/business owner looking to build your board or leadership team, give us a call.
