Our Story

Who are we?

We’re Discovery and we change the way companies recruit and develop people. In a highly disruptive economy and an extremely competitive job market, it’s our belief that businesses need to take new approaches to building their workforce. We believe this new approach is ‘The Discovery Way’.

‘The Discovery Way’ makes us different to your average recruitment or training company: our audience comprises of long-term thinkers who are seeking to realise the full potential of their business and employees. Our approach to long-term success involves matching individuals to the needs of a business; this approach stems from the Discovery founders’ many years of experience in the recruitment and performance development industries, and their passion & desire to do things better.

Through mutual honesty, openness and high-quality results we build long-term relationships with our clients. Our first step isn’t to take a brief; we get to know you, our client, and truly understand your business. This is the diagnostic stage in our process – you’ve identified a recruitment or training need in your organisation, and working as your trusted partner, we use our expertise and unique tools to ensure this is the right long-term solution for you.

Experience has taught us that recruitment and training are better when approached together rather than in isolation: often, an identified need for recruitment or training can be symptomatic of wider needs across a business. Our diagnostic approach involves exploring all possible options with our clients to ensure we find the root cause.

Using the experience and skills of our team we can recruit and train individuals that are the right fit for your organisation, both now and for the future. All of our processes include objectivity, a focus on ‘what good looks like’ for your organisation and evidence of candidate or delegate capability.
