At VARO, all of our candidates are sourced through headhunting. This ensures that we only provide our clients with exceptional candidates. By headhunting rather than advertising, we are also able to put our clients in touch with individuals who are not actively on the market but who remain open to outstanding opportunities.


Many of the candidates that we work with are not actively seeking a move. However, by engaging with us, they benefit from regular market updates and maintain an open line to any exceptional opportunities that may arise.
