Our Story

We connect the Insurance, Financial Services and Technology sectors with the talent to succeed.

The business was founded as I saw an opportunity to start a recruitment consultancy specifically focused on the mid-to-senior section of the market. For clients looking for talent the market is polarised with database driven recruitment firms supporting the lower end of the market, often working with ‘active’ talent and utilising online advertising mediums. The more senior end of the market is occupied with search firms, who often provide an inflexible, lengthy and costly solution.

I wanted to build a company which would operate as a specialist, employing consultants who understand their disciplines and markets, continually networking, offering an effective and consultative approach. We place real value on the relationships we build with our clients, our candidates and the talent in our own business.  

By living and breathing this philosophy, our business has grown since its inception in 2002 and we have expanded our operations from London to Reading. Zurich, Singapore and Hong Kong with an international team of over 150.  

Great organisations need great people and our goal has always been to attract, develop and retain recruitment and search professionals who are accountable for delivering an  exceptional customer experience in their specialist areas. People who are experts, who develop a true understanding of their markets and whose reputation matters to them.  

We have cemented Eames as a brand that prioritises relationships and offers a  consultative service supported by in depth research at the mid-to-senior level of the market. We are proud of our business and the code of ethics we work to. I have no doubt this has contributed to our impressively loyal client and candidate following.  

​We are on a journey that connects our clients' goals, our candidates’ careers and the people working at Eames.
