Our priority is to deliver solutions to the problems our clients face. We’re driven by understanding the bigger picture so we can advise and assist our clients in doing what is best for our healthcare system. i&e Professionals will never be about transactional relationships or generating profit for our shareholders.

An exceptional quality service will always be our driver. We constantly recognise the need to adapt and be agile so we can provide strategic leadership for our clients. It’s what makes us one of the most respected recruitment consultancy businesses in the UK. We always strive to be the best.

  • Joanna was supportive, efficient, and helped recruit a crucial role in the NHS sector. With a large network of contacts, she kept me updated on progress and worked to the agreed-upon brief. I highly recommend her to colleagues.
