challenges our clients face.


When growing a business, time is of the essence. It’s essential to be reactive to the opportunities that come your way, and for your departments and teams to scale simultaneously. We take the guesswork out of talent on-boarding.


Protecting your brand reputation within the job market is key to attracting the best talent. We understand the importance of professional and ethical representation, when prospecting talent.


Matching candidates to your culture and company values is important. We make it our business to understand the required traits that fit, to ensure maximum talent retention.


All consultancies differ in their USPs and how they structure their technical and financial teams. We take pride in promoting the R&D Tax job market to high calibre candidates new to the industry from different backgrounds (IT/Software, Engineering etc). We also have an excellent network of experienced R&D professionals.

R&D Tax

As one of only a few recruiters in Europe that specialises in R&D Tax, Leonid works closely with R&D Tax consultancies to create a forward-thinking talent acquisition strategy that supports future growth. While the R&D Tax Consultant talent pool is small, we work closely with industry professionals to identify opportunities to convert top talent to the R&D Tax sector, in addition to networking with existing professionals across Europe and the US.
