Altum Consulting was founded in April 2013 as a recruitment consultancy that would do things differently. Recognising that the often-poor perception of the recruitment profession was largely down to the big firms that focused on volume of sales over quality of service, David McDowell and Edward Nash-Steer set out to create a business that would offer a genuinely consultative service. A business which would empower its proactive consultants to apply innovation and creative thinking to each new recruitment challenge, which would value the quality of relationships over the number of sales calls made, and which would strive to offer the very best recruitment experience possible for both clients and candidates.

Altum Consulting has already developed a reputation for delivering against recruitment challenges with pace and professionalism. We have teams dedicated to executive search, interim management, and contingent recruitment in finance and business transformation. In 2016, we extended our global reach with a practice based in Amsterdam.
