Connaught Search Solutions was launched in 2006 by the current CEO, who was keen to deliver fresh thinking and innovation to clients, in the critical areas of Cost, Quality and Ethics.  Quite simply this involved listening to their requirements and issues, then creating a solution, rather than the other way round.  He tested and benchmarked the Embedded Search model within a FTSE 100, and subsequently developed the concept for the wider global market.

This pioneering model saw Connaught establish its reputation quickly, delivering solutions to leading corporations and household name brands, with ‘early adopters’ recognising its full potential. The model rapidly proved that it could be very successfully applied to companies in any sector, and on an international basis. Early clients were spread broadly across sectors as diverse as high tech, Building Products, IT Services, Retail, Engineering, Software, Public Sector outsourcing and Telecoms such as:


  • Cisco

  • Vodafone

  • Visa

  • Microsoft

  • Alliance Boots

  • Wolseley

  • Invensys

  • National Grid

  • Serco

  • Polycom

  • Honeywell
