Red Eagle was established in 2004 by Wayne and Jo-Anna Hodgson, two highly experienced and focused individuals and joined shortly after in mid 2005 by Will Cotter.

As a team they set out to create a business in the market offering a more personal and honest recruitment service to benefit both clients and candidates.
Seeing an opportunity to reassess the methods and service levels offered by other organisations, they felt that, given their knowledge of the local area, they could offer a fresh approach to the recruitment market.
