The team has a proven track record of building profitable recruitment start-ups and they are with you every step of the way.

Sam Taylor
Founder of Londinium Recruitment

James and Murali gave me a piece of advice 10 years ago when I was complaining about my workload. They said, “Listen, Dan. If you don’t feel like you’re flying by the seat of your pants for every minute of the day when you set up a business, you’re not doing it right. Get used to it. The journey is 100 times easier and 1000 times more rewarding with James and Murali sat alongside you
