Onwards to our company and culture…

We are Discovery

We believe that powerful organisations stem from powerful people on the ground. It's about sitting down with you, understanding your business and getting it right the first time.

Our Culture - What we do

We don’t believe that recruitment, training or development should be looked at in isolation. Instead, we take a diagnostic approach to each individual organisation, which lets us truly understand each role we are recruiting for and find the root cause of the problem. From here, we look to solve these problems once and for all, and reduce the total cost of ownership for our clients along the way.

This approach is what has made us the leaders in results-driven recruitment, training, and development: we call it "The Discovery Way".

From humble beginnings, we have grown exponentially over the last 18 years to become well-recognised across entry level and executive hires, both domestically and internationally, for our exceptional results and service delivery. The beauty of our approach is that we can help any business, regardless of size or industry, to recruit, develop and retain the right people for their workforce.

We are a values-driven business, where hard work and integrity is recognised and rewarded. Every single member of the team plays a massively important part in our success.

Across all of our team, we are committed to employee development, whether this means supporting additional qualifications or the excellent remuneration and benefits package that we offer to all employees.

It’s not all work though; we take time to celebrate our successes with company days out, monthly drinks nights, a quarterly dining club, monthly breakfast meetings, rewards and other incentives for top performers.

As well as finding the perfect candidates on behalf of our clients, our expertise stretches to our bespoke training programmes designed for graduates, executives and managers to achieve high performance.

Our aim is to find like-minded graduates who share the same passion and entrepreneurial spirit as our founders, and who are ready to become a part of our exceptional team and share the future successes of Discovery.
