Family & Alternatively Owned Businesses

As an employee-benefit trust, owned by our Partners, we understand unique business structures.

Overview

Over the past thirty years we have developed a particular interest and niche in recruiting to organisations that have a distinct and unique structure and culture – from family-owned businesses going back centuries to cooperatives and businesses changing their ownership structure. Saxton Bampfylde is uniquely placed to advise these organisations.
