We support and connect sought after specialists with pioneering companies all over the world, and it has never felt more important than during the pandemic. We help to supercharge careers, including supporting candidates going through a mid-career switch. 

After a hiring freeze due to the pandemic, Charles, one of our candidates took up a role within the Ministry of Health. However, despite the positive and valuable experience he gained, once hiring in the banking sector returned to normal, he wanted to return to his passion and continue on his career path.

By working within a sector where you learn many transferrable skills like communication and time management, as well as the technical know-how. It made it really easy to help him make the transition to and fro between the two industries, with the help of our Huxley recruitment brand and specialist consulants.

Thank you Huxley for making this shift back into the banking industry possible. I'm grateful for your consultants' proactiveness and recommendation to find a role suitable for my profile and preference - Charles, Candidate
