About Us

Carat is an innovative management and resourcing consultancy which delivers joined up solutions designed to increase business turnover and profit by improving the inherent skill capabilities and quality of your employees. We have successfully recruited many roles from middle management to Board and Executive level.

Our 20 years of expertise in recruitment in a broad range of industries allows us to develop a plan that is specific to your needs and that your business can rely on long after we leave. It will allow you to re-introduce a spark to your management teams, add depth and breadth to your organisation’s abilities and create a business where everyone is moving in the same direction. Our portfolio of clients has been wide ranging from major internationals such as Care UK, The Jockey Club and ITV to smaller embryonic businesses. The bulk of our current clients have used us to recruit for many years and we enjoy being their trusted advisers.

We begin every assignment with a desire for learning; about the business, the culture and the underlying values and behaviour and the business model and strategic goals for the company. We believe in true partnering with clients to decide the best direction for each individual assignment to take. This may include, and frequently does, working with discretion in sensitive or specialised environments.

We are not a conventional consultancy. Our work is all about helping you, not all about us. We speak in plain English, work with you to establish and achieve your goals and offer an objective, third-party vision – backed by years of practical commercial expertise.
