Who we are.

It is our promise to create opportunities for people and business to achieve beyond their ambitions with compassion, understanding and respect. We do this by creating lasting connections for people and businesses to thrive and inspire a future of shared success.

What motivates us is our shared purpose to empower people to promote progress and create positive change.

Since 1981, we have been delivering office and engineering recruitment services to Wigan and the North West. With partnership at the heart of everything we do, we have built a trusted local recruitment brand to create lasting value to your business and your career.

What we do

We live by four guiding principles.

Do the right thing, always.

We’re determined to always do the right thing and at the heart of everything we do is honesty. We work in partnership with an authentic and open approach.

Total transparency is not only what you can expect but what everyone deserves.

We want to help each other, and our customers be amazing, because we’re in this together.

We’re curious and keep learning, so that we can be better informed to be better for our customers.

Be compassionate & consistent.

We appreciate that communication starts with listening and understanding. We care about each other and our customers and treat everyone with kindness. It’s compassion that builds trust and we thrive on the trust we’ve earned from the relationships that we’ve built over time.

Consistency underpins everything we do because how we get things done is as important as outcomes. We’re proud and humbled to be approachable and relatable people, doing our best for our customers and each other.

Be clear and add value.

We want to create positive experiences and wildly successful customers because we’re committed to adding value in every way we can. We communicate clearly and manage expectations up front because we appreciate that uncertainly leads to frustration.

We take the time to understand everyone’s views and needs and share our local market and sector knowledge with our customers, so that each engagement is founded on mutual trust and respect.

Love what you do and have fun.

We love what we do! We start each day excited to make a positive impact on people’s lives. We’re motivated by each other and get a thrill our of our customers’ success and being part of their journey.

We care about building relationships that last well past outcomes and we never lose sight of the value of taking a moment to appreciate each other. We laugh, have fun and share the joy, because being happy is good for everyone.
