About Us

We specialise in supporting small to medium sized companies across Kent & London to identify the best local talent across technology, marketing & support based roles.


About the Founder

I’m John Adams, a former internal corporate Recruitment Manager. Having spent over 20 years delivering recruitment solutions to a number of international technology companies I decided to shift my focus. These days I typically work with small to medium sized companies who see the benefits of my extensive corporate experience in delivering them a more partnership based approach to their talent acquisition process.

Our Typical Client

Our clients are often technology focused SME’s that are frustrated with recruiters over promising, under delivering, overcharging and bombarding them with CV’s in the hope that one will stick. This mentality is just not what I am about having spent the majority of my professional life working closely in-house with hiring managers and business leaders to build successful teams.


Identifying the Right Candidate

Having spent many years within the corporate world, I believe that many SME’s regularly fail to identify the best local talent. They all too often set the bar low in order to fill the role quickly and with the least cost.  I fully appreciate the cost and time pressures for many SME’s, however we should not underestimate the real cost of a poor hire and that is where I believe I can add real value to the process.

As a former internal Recruitment Manager, I am passionate about getting the best local candidate in terms of skills, experience and also culture personality fit, areas which are often overlooked. I am also focused on ensuring that our service is consistenttimely and cost effective.


Our Fee Structure

We pride ourselves on offering a quality service at a competitive rate. The rate will generally depend on the level of exclusivity, commitment to working with us and expected volume of vacancies. We are confident that we are hard to beat on overall value, given the quality of candidates we present and the level of experience and service we offer.

  • 12% of the basic salary

Where we are given a minimum 3-day exclusive period to work on the role to enable us to conduct a thorough search.

  • 15% of the basic salary

Where there are multiple recruitment agencies engaged on the search as this factors in the high likelihood of duplicated effort. If this is the first vacancy that you are looking to brief us on then please give us a call to discuss. We may be able to agree 12% depending on the circumstances.
