We’ve got purpose

Stott and May are a professional search firm with a passion for helping leaders achieve complete confidence that they have hired the right talent, first time, in fiercely competitive markets. We believe you should never have to make the choice between quality of candidate and time to hire. As a result, our business has been founded on the principle of offering a premier standard of search service delivered in vastly accelerated timescales, that our competition simply cannot match. Because after all this is about more than just recruitment, it’s about turning your business vision into reality.

Our Vision is to be the ultimate partner for quality, speed and execution in talent acquisition. It’s a mindset every Stotter possesses. We call it QSE.

What does it mean to be a Stotter?

We believe culture comes from within. That’s exactly why our staff dictate the values that we hold dear on all relationships. Coming up with those values was a process we called Stottercise. It’s a bit like excersise but not as challenging as it comes naturally to every Stotter.
