About Us

We are a people company. It’s about getting the right balance of personalities and capabilities that makes Metzger a great company to work with … always professional, approachable and endeavouring to keep a sense of perspective. When the people mix is right, so is everything else, whether you are a client, candidate or part of the team.

The business was launched in 1994 when the two James’s decided to join forces to establish a specialist recruitment consultancy within easy access to London and airports, proving to be a sound decision since the business now manages international assignments as well as throughout the UK.

Still privately-owned, Metzger has grown and prospered around the belief that pursuing long term close relationships with clients and candidates, based on mutual respect and honesty, is the key to creating real value for all parties. We now offer much more than Executive Search, having extended our business services to include Management Recruitment, Interim Management and HR Services, as well as other partnership ventures with complementary businesses.

Traditionally, Metzger has provided creative and practical talent management to the business and support services and property and infrastructure business sectors. In recent years, we have diversified to other business sectors, including building, retail, hotels and hospitality, technology and ecommerce. We work closely with our clients to identify their specific requirements and then create a well-defined, pragmatic solution that is fully tailored to both the organisational and cultural context of the assignment ... the same approach whether your need is the attraction, assessment or development of people.

We adopt an entrepreneurial and flat management structure that ensures excellent communication and top-level support from every member of the team. Without hierarchy, pomp and ceremony, we just get on with the task, working as a team, and ensure that Metzger is the partner, supplier or employer of choice.
