Our people

Our team has been built over many years. We take care in recruiting the right people for our business and develop their skills to meet our client's expectations. We thrive on feedback and promote a culture of reward and recognition. For those that don't continue to meet our high standards, we manage them fairly and appropriately.

We recognise that our investigators are our best advertisement for future work and require ongoing support from our St Leonards-based team. By working closely together, we achieve the best possible outcome on every job. Our investigators are supported by:
