He is to be commended for his respectful and thorough approach for both the firm and the candidates he represents. He is one of the most impressive head-hunters I have had the opportunity to work with. Accordingly, I recommend him unreservedly to both individuals and firms.
Ortus Group understand our business principles and core values and as a result they have brokered several of our acquisition deals. With the support of Ortus Group, we have recently completed our 35th acquisition in just twelve years. It’s been a great year-to-date and we look forward to strengthening our working relationship with Ortus Group to implement our growth strategy.

He took the time to understand our business, is extremely knowledgeable in the legal sector and presented opportunities that clearly fell in-line with the business strategy. He was excellent to work with.
Colin was very thorough in the task he managed for us. He had an excellent understanding of our business and our requirements and a reassuring presence throughout the whole process.
