Talent Acquisition

Bespoke search into the environment and engineering consulting sector

Contrary to the myth, you can actually put a square peg in a round hole, it just doesn’t fit, it probably won't work very well and it will likely get stuck or fall out.

We make sure the right people fit your business...

Talent Acquisition


May Walters was formed to provide a niche headhunting service within the engineering and environmental consulting sector, something that was historically confined to the boardroom 

We work with consultancies on hard to fill vacancies, or to introduce individuals with a rare skillset

Our Directors are senior in the industry, with a wide network of associates who can provide intelligence and connections in the market 

Our search process is individualised and focussed on matching the expectations of all stakeholders within the process

A consultancy’s greatest asset is its staff, effective talent retention begins with the recruitment

Consultancy Market

We specialise in working with consultancies in the environmental and engineering sector.  Our client list ranges from the large tier organisations through to more niche consultancies, introducing people for key positions from Board level through to team leadership roles 

Our industry knowledge has also allowed us to deliver strategic consulting from delivering market intelligence and benchmarking, talent pipelining through to coaching and training. 

Our Approach

Much of the recruitment industry relies heavily on advertising.

Most senior people in the market are not actively looking but would move for the right opportunity.

In order to effectively present an opportunity, we first thoroughly understand your organisational objectives and expectations.

We can then make intelligent and individual approaches to the whole market.

In that way, we can deliver the best the market has to offer.

Career Consultancy

Many senior roles are not advertised, they are created with someone in mind

However in a technical industry that regulates its skillsets by training, there is very little impartial guidance available that helps you to plan your career 

We can help you to answer the questions; ‘what is the next step?’ and ‘how do I get there?’

Or you can wait for an advert and hope that your CV looks better than everyone else’s.
