A break with convention
At Collingwood we live our success through others – our clients and candidates. We’re not obsessed with ‘body shopping’ or the growth of our own business. What we care about is helping our clients to meet their goals.
We love that we’re a prerequisite to conversations about talent strategy. It’s not often about replacing like for like. We offer an in-depth view of the talent landscape, helping our clients to make informed decisions and expand their talent horizons.
If you know us, you’ll know that our ethics and values knit together our culture and aspirations. We work with companies that we’ll be proud to shout about and that we’ll relish working with.
Holding ourselves accountable means believing in our clients’ businesses. We know we need to constantly strive for innovation and we’re enthusiastic early adopters. By actively listening to our clients and candidates we’re able to add value and share industry insights as standard. Our integrity means we put your interests before our own.
We’re not afraid to break with convention, it’s a win-win for everyone.
Collingwood’s strategy wheel is a visual representation of what we stand for. It allows us to articulate how we make a difference to our employees and clients through our core purpose, supporting vision, measurements, strategic foundations, and values.

The core purpose is the emotional connection to a business – why you get out of bed in the morning, our reason for being; why Collingwood exist.
The vision is how we want the market to perceive us, and our ambition. This is the logical foil to the intrinsic, emotional purpose.
This is how we know we’ve achieved our vision, our measure of success.
Strategic activities detailing ‘what’ needs to be done to achieve our vision and measure. This will form the part of our change programme to align the business and get to where we want to be.
