What Are Our Services?

We are an ever-growing global HSEQ careers specialist built on long-term relationships, industry knowledge, and geographic expansion. We collaborate with clients to deliver flexible talent solutions depending on their bespoke needs.

We act as career agents to HSEQ professionals and partners to organisations looking to maximise their HSEQ function. Together, we can help create sustainable efficiency and growth through business improvement, safer work environments, and enhanced wellbeing. We help our clients to win, deliver, and operate successfully.

Additionally, our Project Services creates customer value in the construction, civil infrastructure, technology, and renewable energy sectors, through leveraging Quality and Safety to deliver better project returns. We partner throughout the project lifecycle, from pre-bid to operating, using best-in-class frameworks underpinned by our progressive assurance model.

Furthermore, our unique combination of HSEQ industry knowledge and exceptional service delivery ensures that our clients acquire the best talent for their organisations through our executive search services. Whilst also providing valuable feedback on how the market perceives them as potential employers.

Our Motivations, Aspirations, Personality and Progression programme (MAPP) is a bespoke, HSEQ specific profiling tool that vastly increases the chances of a good talent match. It benchmarks against ‘best in class’ HSEQ traits and builds a holistic view of an individual, team or organisation. It’s fully scalable and operates throughout the talent lifecycle, from attraction and recruitment to personal development and succession planning.
