IDEX Consulting is an innovative, independent Recruitment and Business Growth Consultancy. We have been providing a bespoke service to the Insurance, Financial Services and Legal sectors since 2006.
IDEX Consulting was originally founded as a specialist General Insurance Talent Management consultancy back in 2006, with the mission of developing a professional recruitment business which focuses on adding value to our partners. We have come a long way since those humble beginnings, last year placing over 550 candidates with a broad spectrum of clients across the UK, Europe, Middle East and the US.
We have also evolved our client proposition, cementing IDEX as a leading Business Growth Consultancy within our core areas. We work with a broad range of clients to advise on the best solutions to achieve their own growth ambitions, drawing on IDEX's expertise across Talent Management, Advisory Services and M&A to achieve these objectives.
However, our core values and ethos has remained solid during that time…Building TRUST, taking PRIDE and providing a SOLUTIONS LED service to encourage innovation and creativity to produce consistently high results.
At IDEX, we have consistently developed our offering, adding our Financial Services Sector in 2008 and Legal Sector in 2013, now operating internationally from offices in London, Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow.
Each of our specialist Consultants & Advisors are true experts in their field, meaning we are positioned to provide you with a detailed analysis of each local market; its trends, changes and challenges. Enabling us to advise our clients and candidates on the opportunities and talent available locally, nationally and internationally.
A key differentiator for us is that we do not target our expert Consultants on activity; we focus on results. The key for us is to place the right person in the right job, and by utilising our 4-step methodology to proactively identify the correct solution for a client or candidate, not a quick win outcome.
Below are just a few reasons why our clients and candidates partner with IDEX.
