Frustration with the lack of client value.

Frustration with the transactional nature of recruitment.

Frustration with the mercenary lens our industry looks through.

With close to two decades of being the go-to recruitment service provider, we have a clear understanding of our purpose and vision for customer success.


At MBA, we believe in investing time and effort in getting to know our candidates before their interview. Our recruitment process is designed to provide a thorough and supportive experience from sourcing to placement and beyond.

We start by strategically sourcing candidates through our extensive database, CV-sourcing techniques, network connections, and targeted adverts.

Each candidate goes through a qualification and assessment process, which includes screening calls, where we evaluate their qualifications, motivations, and suitability for the role. And most importantly, we handle all the necessary reference checks as required by the business.

We also provide comprehensive interview preparation support to candidates, ensuring they are fully equipped with the knowledge and confidence needed to excel in their interviews. We focus on merit based recruitment, to ensure unbiased approach to hiring.

We engage in check-in calls with candidates before, during, and after their placements to ensure continuous communication.

Regardless of the outcome, we provide candidates with comprehensive feedback and guidance for their future endeavours.


Rooted in a collective commitment to minimising our environmental impact, we've undertaken significant steps towards sustainability. Following rigorous assessments, including EcoVadis evaluations and a comprehensive carbon footprint analysis conducted with Sustainable Business Services, we've gained valuable insights into our operations. Our data reveals a carbon footprint of 100.3 tonnes of CO2 emitted from April 2022 to April 2023, equivalent to 76.2 round-trip flights from London to New York. This assessment, spanning Scope 1, Scope 2, and Scope 3 emissions, underscores our holistic approach to sustainability. Armed with these insights, we're actively pursuing strategies to reduce our emissions, such as transitioning to renewable energy sources and re-evaluating business travel practices.

We're setting measurable goals aligned with industry standards, committing to the United Nations Race to Zero and aligning our approach to the Science Based Target Initiative. Our dedication to transparency ensures accountability as we strive for a more sustainable future. Moving forward, we remain resolute in our commitment to ongoing research, evaluation, and continuous improvement, ensuring our actions leave a positive legacy for generations to come.
