We make business human

An extraordinary team of experts

Annapurna has been committed since day one to providing expert human resources offerings, and exceeding our client’s expectations is our ultimate goal. We have a dedicated team with recruitment expertise across the Permanent, Contract & Interim space, with a specific focus on HR Change and Transformation.

We work with businesses that are starting, scaling, transforming and evolving with the ever-changing world of work.

Maintaining consistent relations via our thought leadership communities and content channels

We build specialist, lasting, relationships within the industries we specialise in through our network and are able to deliver world-class recruitment services to our candidates and clients alike.

Classic search has mostly tailored for the very senior end of the skills spectrum, but we believe that these principles are just as valid for any specialist skillset.

Expertise with talent

With over 15 years of experience in placing generalist and specialist positions across HR, we have been multi-awarded for our excellence at recruiting the decision-makers, who will lead the development of your business.

Whether you are looking to fill Permanent or Contract/Interim roles, our wide network of professionals with HR experience allows us to showcase a candidate who matches both your current needs, future aspirations and your company culture. We have built this network since inception, with it now reaching over 100,000 professionals who engage with our thought leadership content, and attend our exclusive events across Europe.

Excellence in search

The ability to find and deliver the best specialist professionals to organisations that find themselves with specific requirements is a task we thrive upon. Most recruitment professionals should be able to deliver a long list of names of people that might be appropriate for a role, but the true test is who has the relationships to deliver the individual to the organisation.

Executive Search

Annapurna Recruitment has an unparalleled specialist executive search capability. The development of our award-winning communities and content channels has enabled us to build strong, binding, deep relationships with the senior professionals in the disciplines that we recruit for. Through these relationships, we are uniquely poised to deliver the world’s best talent to our clientele.
