Meet our team of experts

Sarah Close

Founder & Director

During my career I have covered many aspects of HR, Recruitment and Operations from being a Recruitment Consultant to a Recruitment Agency Director and as a HR Advisor through to Strategic Business Partnering and now I’m a Business Owner.

I have consulted on various organisation restructures and high-growth business start ups. I have a particular interest in people and personality profiling. I’m a firm believer that specific personality traits align with specific career paths.

So why do companies waste so much time and money hiring badly, disciplining employees who are in a job they despise, or promoting leaders that can’t lead?

If individuals and businesses invested in profiling and understanding their true selves and each other. Then time and money would not be wasted, and a fraction of 'work based' Mental Health issues eliminated. A square peg doesn’t fit in a round hole after all!
