About Us

SPE stands for Scientia Potentia Est: the Latin term for ‘knowledge is power’. And it’s true – by taking this phrase to heart, we’ve established ourselves as one of the leading executive headhunters in the UK.

We specialise in recruiting for the retail, hospitality, leisure and private equity sectors, drawing on decades’ worth of experience and a select network of industry contacts to pair the most esteemed clients and candidates.

In 2009, founder Daniel Cornwell saw a gap in the market for a business that could deliver the same levels of service as ‘London’ search firms, but with the approachable accountability of mid-market businesses. The result was SPE Resourcing, which has experienced year-on-year growth thanks to its unique place in the market.

In 2017, Simon Parsons came on board, reinforcing our expertise and further extending our reach – he is known as the go-to recruiter in hospitality and leisure, and for good reason.

Our approach is, in some respects, quite traditional – we’re fond of meeting people face-to-face, so we can really get to know them. Yet we’re also progressive, offering a cost-effective and efficient alternative to the big recruiters.
