About Us

We recruit the best leaders in Health and Social care for the betterment of the sector and the people being cared for

Working with the best in class investor backed, founder owned businesses, not for profit and supply chain organisations in health and social care, we are proud that 100% of our retained Executive Search projects have been delivered to a successful outcome.


Pioneer is a family run business which was set up with the sole purpose of making a difference in the health and social care sector. Wanting to put our values-based search and selection expertise to good use in a sector that matters to us all, Pioneer was born. We spotted a gap in the market for a refined recruitment service where a client can be satisfied that the best candidates in the market are being shortlisted.

We are an energetic team with a combined 50 years’ experience in recruitment. We work diligently and with integrity to support the recruitment of management and executive positions for our clients in the Health and Social Care sector. Pioneer is an ethical and flexible search and selection specialist where employee wellbeing and welfare is key, our clients and candidates feel this in the immaculate and warm service they receive.

We work with the Pioneer methodology, undertaking a detailed market mapping and intelligence based research. We are relationship focused and listen to what our clients need, gaining detailed insight into the culture of an organisation and working closely with our candidates to get the best fit for all and provide long term solutions to our clients.

Pioneers bring passion, care, reliability and diligence to every assignment.
