Who We Are

Minerva was founded in 2013 and has developed a leading reputation in our sectors. We set out not to become the largest firm, but to be the most interesting, committed to a holistic and human approach that separates us out in our industry.

We see our work as a professional service, not a commodity approach to recruitment.
