Helping you to support others

A need for outstanding business support staff in any industry will always arise, whether through seasonal change or for other reasons. At Star Anise, we take a holistic approach to our recruitment. Inspired by the law firm model which typically requires a balance of fee-earners and support staff, we have naturally evolved our services into assisting law firms, professional firms, and multi-national companies with the searching, identifying and shortlisting of professional support staff as well.
