About Us


Catandra was formed in 2015 by Andy Wheeler to provide headhunting services within the retail, logistics and supply chain sectors. With experience of running his own businesses and working for privately owned and listed companies, Andy has a diverse background working across different sectors including recruitment, travel and corporate events.


It was this varied experience that led him to set up Catandra with a view to support and work with clients in a sector that has suffered from a poor reputation. Developing a new way of working Catandra provides tailored recruitment services for businesses looking to strengthen or transform their senior team.


In 2018 prompted by client demand a consultancy offering was developed to compliment the executive search services. This has been designed around a hands on approach with specialist consultants working with a range of businesses addressing challenges such as strategy, structure and staff engagement.


Relationships are at the heart of what we do at Catandra; whether working with long term clients or potential new partners.   Based in Lewes, Sussex, there is a thriving start-up who benefit from friendly support and advice which is provided on a pro-bono basis working with our partner organisation StartUPstaff.

01. Trust

Catandra is built on the trust of clients and candidates who have helped the business move forwards since 2015, without this mutual respect there would be no business.


02. Service

Providing the highest level of service is at the heart of Catandra’s offering; taking an honest and open approach ensures there are no surprises and clients have full visibility.


03. Strategy

Understanding your business and your motivations allows us to tailor services to you, ensuring that our strategy compliments yours.

Attracting the best talent for your business is something we are very proud of.


Utilising a range of tools we will engage you through every process to ensure you are involved.


Engaging with professionals across multiple sectors creates a unique knowledge base to share with you.
