Our Recruitment Process

Connect people with the right jobs

We have no ‘one-size-fits all’, every client is different, so it only makes sense that we take a tailored approach to address your requirements. We find who you are looking for by meticulously searching across the UK.

Career advice & candidate resources

We help our clients with our advice and our approach, from understanding a client’s needs, beyond the stated job specification, through to the recruitment, interviews, and the introduction to your business.

We are specialists, not generalists.

Our approach is focussed on core industries and markets, that focus means we know our subject. It enables us to make solid judgement calls and more over ease your recruitment process.

Our Expert Team

Dawn Okwabi

Founder / Managing Director

Read bio
Born and raised in Manchester.

Have worked in recruitment for 10 years and before that, 25 years in criminal law.  Recruitment is extremely satisfying, like when a round peg fits into a round hole!

I am a people person most definitely and enjoy creating that trust element/bond between client and me.  Its key in this industry to recognise exactly the clients needs and the candidates abilities.

Music is my passion, whether it be a live gig or listening to music whilst walking my dog – both make me happy.

Recruitment is not a numbers game. It is about people, the people who have built a business, the people who operate their business, the people who enhance the business, the people who will take the business to new levels.
