Our strategy

The Group’s strategy for growth is centered on international expansion and discipline diversification.

But we haven’t grown by snapping up our rivals, we’ve done it by making sure we deliver on our promises. And that’s meant more companies and professionals want to work with us. Quality and integrity are our watchwords.

Our growth is largely organic, with the Group only making 3 market-entry acquisitions in its 34 year history. Driving growth through further specializing in our existing recruitment disciplines and the launching of new specialist teams means we're helping more and more job seekers and organisations across the world.
