INTEGRITY

You can trust Intuitive to always do the right thing. Everything we do is underpinned by integrity, honesty and putting your best interests first.

FAIRNESS

We treat people properly. We understand how pivotal and life-changing a new role or hire can be, so exercise the utmost care and balance in our process.

TRANSPARENCY

What you see is what you get. We’re curious and sincere communicators. You always know where you stand and can rely on us to do what we say we will do.

DIVERSITY &
INCLUSION

As a sector serving every demographic of the UK, Diversity and Inclusion is a social, moral, and legal priority in Transport. Valuing difference also has incredible, but often untapped, business and economic benefits for transport organisations too.

Intuitive’s dedication to Diversity and Inclusion delivers the fresh perspectives and diverse thought to help transport organisations evolve. We connect clients to a diverse talent network, helping to develop an inclusive workforce that supports strategic policies and innovate problem solving. So, you can make a success of the huge challenges the sector faces.
