The Owner/Manager philosophy is integral to Strategic Personnel’s Corporate Culture. Consultants are viewed as partners rather than employees; we believe that this is reflected in the consultants’ professionalism and commitment to both client and applicant. It is this firmly entrenched culture that differentiates Strategic Personnel from their competitors and has ensured that Strategic Personnel continues to attract the "Winning" Consultant who embraces Strategic Personnel's entrepreneurial spirit and culture of accountability.

Strategic Personnel prides itself on truly understanding our clients core business and being able to recognise the uniqueness of each client. Despite recent years being the toughest trading years for some time, it is all these factors that ensure that Strategic Personnel is built to last.
