About us

We put recruitment intelligence at the heart of your business strategy

We believe that every company has the potential to recruit the most talented candidates without the use of recruitment agencies. Cogito exists to empower our customers to take greater ownership of recruitment and increase their return on investment.

Our extensive recruitment leadership experience is combined with research and data analytical tools enabling in-house recruit teams to:

  • increase candidate quality
  • reduce recruitment costs
  • reduce their reliance upon third parties
  • gain control of employer brand
  • enhance candidate experience

We want to work with customers who want to make a real and long term change to the ‘who’ and ‘how’ they recruit, businesses with a desire to create talent strategies which enhance the long term sustainability of the organisation.

We make this a reality by working as a partner with our customers; developing a deep understanding of their culture, capabilities, goals and vision and providing consultative advice underpinned by fact based intelligence which ensures that the best talent is recruited through direct recruitment activity.
