Moon Consulting 2015 - 15 Years of Contributing to a Stronger Society
Moon Consulting go beyond recruitment: we equip business leaders with the knowledge and skills to excel in today’s rapidly changing environment. Our core values are to be distinctive, ethical and approachable in all our undertakings, both inside and outside of our business. We believe that by engaging in activities outside of our recruitment work, we facilitate the exchange of skills and values between business and the community. This can develop and empower well-rounded leaders who can then influence and drive sustainable growth and long-term prosperity.
This collaborative approach makes us excellent recruitment partners: by understanding the environment in which your business operates, we can find the right leadership talent to match your culture and objectives.
2015 marks our 15th year of trading. This year we are making public our corporate responsibility programme to showcase how Moon Consulting works towards improving communities, developing leadership and contributing to a stronger society.
