UPDATE MARCH 2020: During the current uncertain times, we can confirm that the Denza will remain open. We are all working remotely so can assist with anything via email or phone. We also have a new app for booking calls – just email us for the appointment link.

Our clients are still launching searches with us and we are still presenting candidates for consideration. The reality for candidates is that searching for a new role, participating in an interview process, creating projects and giving notice can take a few months. We are remaining hopeful that the outcome will be much brighter for everyone by then. We very much look forward to hearing from you.
