WHO WE ARE

Breaking away from PwC, as their designated recruitment arm, Veredus emerged as a new name in the market in 2002. Over the course of the last two decades, Veredus has become synonymous with excellence, trustworthiness and integrity.

We combine the strengths of three once-separate businesses to provide a comprehensive suite of functions and capabilities. With a focus on the public sector and regulated markets, we concentrate on senior level hires in both the permanent and the interim space.

With our disruptive offerings in talent solutions – Talent & Leadership Assessment, and Insight and Intelligence – we work more broadly across public, private and civic sectors – see below for some of our clients
