Within our organisation we have over 20 nationalities and 15 spoken languages spread across a team of just over 100.

We have roughly gender parity across our business and our leadership team has diversity of all types including 60:40 female split. At the same time we have our own challenges — only 1 out of 8 board level leaders is female, so we have some work still to do.

Diversity is always a work in progress — we focus on improving ourselves and helping our clients to build best-in-class companies whose workforce reflects their customers and patients. We know that diverse organisations are more productive and we challenge ourselves every day to push the envelope on this topic.

What Workplace we Choose

“what Russia they choose” (the video can be found here VIDEO) I would neither like to dig into political issues nor express any negativity. We might all have different opinions, and our views should not be the same, but as an individual living in a modern world (currently even based in a neutral country 😊) I

Hakim Driouche

Associate Director
Global Marketing

As a French national with north African background, I really wanted to be part of this internal committee that focuses on discussions to ensure we keep our workplace as diverse and inclusive as possible in order to make any current and future employee aware that we take this subject seriously and truly care about the impact we have internally and externally.

Karina Sharipova

Principal
Consultant

I’m proud of my own heritage, upbringing, life experience, education and capabilities that all shape my value and contribution to the business, our clients and the lives of our candidates. Through our internal DE&I group I intend to bring my voice to making our company and our client’s businesses more diverse, happier and more prosperous places to work for people from all walks of life.

Jason Linney

Associate Director
Global Learning & Development

Having spent the best part of 25 years in and around the Recruitment industry and as an openly gay man I have always been impressed by the welcome I have received and been celebrated and developed for what I do, not who I am. To me the meritocratic nature of our industry is the ultimate leveller with Diversity and Inclusion baked into its very DNA.

Jasmine Stewart

Principal Consultant
Manufacturing

It is a pleasure to be part of this group; not only because I am a Tunisian, Indian, British woman but also as I was educated in an international school with people from all over the world, and have experienced first-hand the influence of different cultures on values and behaviours. I believe that no one should be discriminated against their age, disability, race, religion, sex, gender reassignment and sexual orientation.
