​Here at Cobalt we are committed to supporting our clients and candidates globally during the unprecedented COVID-19 challenge.  

Our first priority is the safety of those who are most vulnerable in society, and therefore our staff are working from home on a global basis.  In addition, we are strictly following the direction of the governments in every country in which we operate, in order to assist with the enormous healthcare capacity challenge that the situation presents.

On the business front Cobalt is continuing to support all of our clients, not just by remotely managing the multitude of active search and recruitment processes that we have committed to service, but also by offering practical advice and guidance on remote working, recruiting, staff on-boarding and the wide range of technology solutions that can be effectively utilised to ensure business continuity through this uniquely challenging period.  

If you would like to discuss the day-to-day challenges that are arising from the essential COVID-19 related restrictions that are being implemented, then call or email us and we will do everything we can to suggest immediate and practical solutions.  

In what is a truly global crisis it can be difficult to find things to be positive about.  However, the response in the face of adversity of every single person who we are fortunate to have in the Cobalt business has been truly heartening.  

We are looking out for each other and we are here to offer whatever help we can to you, our clients and candidates, too.

James Wakefield

Chief Executive Officer
