As specialists in candidate search for professional services, we know how important it is to hire the right talent into an organisation.

But for us, it’s not just about matching skills with opportunities. It’s about taking a holistic approach. So the person joining your organisation needs to fit with your ethos, your long-term business goals, and your way of working. And your business needs to fit with a candidate’s ambitions, career path and lifestyle.

It’s this exploratorive, people based approach that makes us a true recruitment consulting firm.

Client Comments

The team from Essentia have supported the build of our technology and analytics capability in the UK and EMEIA markets.  The quality of their screening process stands above other recruiters in the market, and they work with us to really understand and profile our needs.  This means they provide a much higher quality of candidate first time round, and we have the highest conversion rate of CV to hire from this team than any of our other suppliers.   Candidates come to us well briefed and have a clear expectation of the type of work we do in the market.  Very impressive candidates and a team that really thinks about the relationship as a partnership


Our Essentia account manager delivers high quality candidates and gives a very thorough service in terms of the information he provides both to us and to the candidates he guides through our interview process.   What’s more, his honesty is refreshing. Today was a great example when he called me to discuss a candidate’s suitability for a role. I really value the integrity and his ‘partnership’ approach to recruiting for our business
