Our primary business areas are the Pensions, Employee Benefits, Life/Health and Actuarial markets and we deal with all the main employers across these sectors including having a presence on many preferred supplier lists operated by the larger companies. Our current requirement is for an additional Recruitment Consultant to help maintain and develop our presence in the Pensions and Employee Benefits market where we enjoy an excellent reputation.
