Our success within this market place dates back to the early development of Overbury where we introduced many of their key Directors, some of whom remain in the business having placed them over twenty years ago and others who continue to enjoy working with us having moved on to start their own companies. Our clients define, design and deliver office fit-out and refurbishment projects, creating workplaces that empower staff and grow businesses.

“I have known and enjoyed working with both Ian and his team for over twenty years. Having positioned me as Group M.D of Miller Homes, Ian helped me rebuild the business by sourcing both Regional and Divisional Board talent across all disciplines throughout the country.

They quickly understood Octagons particular needs and the specific skills we were looking for.

Their client and candidate management is professional and efficient, communication throughout is excellent and they always deliver within agreed timescales. I could not recommend Thomas Gray enough, a market leader.”
