This is what we believe:

We are personal. We meet people face to face. Candidates are not a “product”. Each person we meet, we treat with respect and do our best to be helpful.

We play the “Long Game” Recruitment is ultimately about developing relationships with people, often in advance of any immediate need to make a career change. In life, to get a friend, you must first be a friend. We invest our time and resources to bring value to people – often by sharing industry knowledge and insights - so that when the timing is right, we can help ensure a smooth and stress-free transition.

We are discreet. We believe that executive recruitment is a specialized service that requires discretion, a professionally-minded attitude, and a keen focus on bringing real value.

We do what we say we will do. If we said that we will do it, then you can count on us to do it. If something is holding us up from delivering on our promises to you, we will contact you immediately.

We are value-oriented. We believe that anything worth doing is worth doing well. If we cannot create a solution where each stakeholder wins, then we won’t be involved.

We are knowledgeable. We establish and maintain credibility by knowing the industry sectors that we serve, and provide value by sharing market information to help people reach their goals.

We work hard so you don’t have to. Changing your job can be a daunting process. It’s difficult to know which options you have available, and it’s a challenge to manage a job change, particularly if you are busy with your current job. We make it easier for you by learning your objectives and goals in advance, so that when the right opportunity comes along, we can help you make the move to the you want.

We are prompt. No one likes to wait on feedback from a meeting. We get back to you promptly, and are transparent and direct with our feedback.

We are humble. We believe that humility is a virtue, and we don’t “sing our own praises”. It's not for us to say that we are great, but for our customers who are happy with our service. Word of mouth from our satisfied clients and candidates is the main reason our business has grown and prospered over the last 15 years.


I am very proud that each member of the Cole & Company team embodies these beliefs every day.

You can count on us to support you.
