What we do

Established in 1999 as Key Selection, Nova Search & Selection started out as a specialist insurance recruitment company.

We developed a loyal client base, and an awesome database of candidates, and we even specialised in the Credit & Political Risks insurance markets, gathering an exceptional network of contacts that provide referrals and market intelligence. We are still present in those markets today.

But as time went on and we developed our client relationships further, we found that we were continually being asked HR questions. So we listened to our clients, became CIPD qualified to give HR advice, and evolved!


Now we are a ONE STOP shop for all your recruitment and HR needs.

  • Although insurance recruitment specialists, we can turn our hand to any recruitment requirements you may have!
  • We have placed anyone and everyone from graduate entry through to Board Director.
  • Our fees are fair and competitive, and if we help you with any HR issues, you get your recruitment fee at a much reduced rate.
  • Don’t let new hires become a pain point. With our combination of recruitment expertise and HR knowledge we can give you instant pain relief.
  • We act as an extension of your team helping you to deal with all employee relations issues.
  • Everywhere you turn there are employment laws and codes of practice. We will recommend your best options and handle all necessary changes to keep you compliant.
  • You can see a potential employee problem, but you don’t know how to deal with it? Not following the correct procedures can be expensive!
  • We are adaptable and work with you to suit your needs best. We advise many Senior Managers on their company’s ‘growing pains’ and in effect we become your HR Manager. This scenario not may suit your company but you can pick what does.

Our mission is to work with any company that needs objective help with recruitment and their staff and work in partnership with them to achieve the best outcomes.
