Simone Mears, Co-Founder and Director of the group explained, “We go to a lot of awards and this is the first time that the recruitment industry has been acknowledged as part of the broader finance and financial services industry. It’s very humbling because we do work very hard to find great people, and place great people within the industry.”

“As a firm, we have contributed to the careers of many women, not only through providing professional opportunities to them, but by mentoring and coaching them. We have been an advocate for female appointments for many years and have made a practical and significant contribution to the number of women appointed to senior and executive roles across the industry over the past 10 years. We are regularly sought out by organisations seeking to redress a gender imbalance in their business.”
