About our business

Founded in 2001, Cornwallis Elt is a highly respected recruitment business, with our HQ based in the City, London.  Our focus is on recruiting technology and change management professionals within the finance, digital & media and professional services sectors. We have an enviable track record of growth and success with an outstanding network of client relationships, a forensic delivery focus and an agile and engaged talent pool.  Cornwallis Elt is part of the larger Morson Group who rank nationally as one of the Best Big Companies™ to work for, whilst being recognised for excelling in Learning and Development.  

About our teams

Cornwallis Elt is an established market leader. Our reputation and client portfolio stands out from our competitors, working for some of the most prestigious and aspirational brands within each of our markets.  Our market specialisms are within Fund Management, Banking, Insurance, Private Equity, Professional Services, Media and Broadcasting.  Consultants run dual desks, allowing you full access to building long standing relationships with clients and candidates alike.

Due to the increased business and relationships within the Birmingham area, we have opened our newest office based in the City Centre, a 15 min walk from Birmingham New Street.
