SME recruitment, mid and senior roles

Lead Consultant Philip Price

Most SMEs will openly acknowledge that they would rather not use an Agency to hire staff, we get that and we advise our clients on how to recruit directly. However for senior roles and specialist roles professional Agency assistance is indispensable, this is where come in. Many SMEs don’t have larger HR and recruiting teams, we work with you taking time to understand your business, the role and the type of the person you need. We advise on the market, salary benchmarking and for senior roles carry out psychometric testing and we are often asked to be part of the final interviewing process.


Philip has 30 years’ experience as a hiring manager and has senior commercial experience with large organisations and SMEs, he has a good understanding of the C Suite dynamics and takes as consultative approach to the recruiting process.
