Why Wave?

Boxing Day 2004, Gareth, the founder of Wave Search was staying on the National Marine Park, Koh Surin off the Andaman coast of Thailand. Sadly that morning, following a huge earthquake in Indonesia, a Tsunami swept through the region killing thousands of people.

Koh Surin was hit hard by the tsunami and despite being washed away in the waves, Gareth and wife Annie managed to survive. 

11 years after the Tsunami the company was formed and was named Wave in memory of this life changing event.

Our Aim

Wave Search was formed with the intention of being regarded as the premier choice for Digital Transformation hiring in Europe. 

With over a decades worth of experience in recruitment, search and management, our aim is to build a business based on professionalism, expertise, reliable delivery and providing a seamless service to both clients and candidates.
