Cobalt to
the core.

We believe that relationships are based on chemistry and trust. To us, the real value of recruitment lies in the ability to attract and retain these relationships, just like the magnetic metal we’re named after.

Real recruitment with a difference. The people we work with are at the forefront of everything we do. 

We are proud to work with ambitious, passionate and dedicated people who want to succeed.

Committed to doing things differently.

We’re a passionate team equipped with the skills and support needed to be able to work in a way that suits you best. It’s just one of the reasons why we stand out from the crowd.

A culture of caring.

Across the globe, our core values remain the same. This means that we treat our clients, candidates, colleagues and community the way we want to be treated ourselves.

This culture of caring fosters a passion and commitment which means we take responsibility for delivering results and making a positive difference to the world around us.

  • ​I have worked with Maria over a number of years, she is incredibly professional and dedicated to finding a candidate the perfect role. I'm a year into my current role that she worked so hard to secure for me and I'm eternally grateful to her.

    Louise Dickson - Senior Property Manager

  • Adam really gets the culture and fit of each individual as well as the needs of the company. He will not put people forward unless he knows that they are good for the role. I’d highly recommend him to anyone needing staff or looking for their next role.
