At the root of our values is a belief in always doing things the right way, not the easy way

As a company, we're determined and passionate about doing things right and redefining what a recruitment firm can, and should be. 

We invest in long-term relationships with our client partners, candidates, and key people of influence within each of our core sectors. 

It's these relationships that we've cultivated over the years that have provided access to the highest quality candidates and have fostered deep levels of trust, across clients and candidates alike, when providing recommendations or opportunities. 

We also invest in our staff, providing proper and thorough training, support, tools and processes to ensure our team are in the best positions possible to succeed as they grow their careers and serve our clients. 

Integrity and trust

We promise to always be honest with our clients and candidates, valuing our integrity and your trust over a short term gain. Our business model relies on our relationships, and those relationships have been built around honesty and trust — two things that we will never compromise, even when no-one is watching.

Agility and innovative thinking

International search is an incredibly competitive space, but we've managed to build a reputation as one of the most responsive agencies working within our sectors. Our unique model means we can be quicker than our competitors, and also work at scale without ever compromising on the quality of candidates we present. And if things do go wrong? We never go quiet on our clients. We're proactive about any issues that do arise, tackling problems head-on to find a solution.

Client and candidate focused

We're not just recruiters, we are consultants for our partners, providing trusted and valued advice and counsel. This means we invest in properly understanding every single one of our clients and candidates, along with the broader industries and international markets. We always act in our client, and candidates', best interests. As one of our clients, your end goals are synonymous with ours, so we only succeed if you're happy long-term. 

The vision of Concilium was to build a business that captured the true essence of search and selection whilst redefining how a consultancy practice operates. From inception, we agreed key sustainability indicators which are paramount to the continued growth of our business and its global footprint. These same standards form the basis of our business and ensure that we deliver the very best service achievable for both client and candidate in equal measure.
