The genuine caring attitude towards those who work here really shines through in everything we do.

Rupert joined the Consortia team back in 2014 as our Contract Division Manager having held senior positions elsewhere in the recruitment industry. He was tasked with building up the contract desk and since joining has exceeded all expectations working with clients of all sizes from start-ups to FTSE100 firms. In his first three years on a cold desk, Rupert billed £1 million GP alone and is about to buy his second home!
