Executive search is not simply about acquiring talent, but requires the skilled management of a complex process that involves a deep understanding of the culture and motivation of our clients and the candidates with whom we interact, allied with our deep knowledge of the marketplace.
The direction of executive search has evolved from simply knowing where to look for talent, to adding value at every step of the process, by expertly marrying the expectations of both the client and the candidates and matching talent to the business’ goals, culture and future strategy. It also means adding real value and offering genuine choice. Simply meeting the brief, whilst essential, is just no longer good enough.
Diversity is not just a mantra, but part of a cohesive effort to reflect the changing face of business and to offer our clients the best choices. We believe that talent transcends boundaries and it is right to challenge pre-conceptions. We believe in regular and comprehensive communication with both clients and candidates, reflecting honesty and clarity. Pace and speed are virtues of quality and are key to both our's and your success.
Imagination, flair and effort all play their essential part. No matter how good the technical approach, we are dealing with people; We never lose sight of that human touch. Equally, we need to know what our sectors and markets are doing – and also what keeps their leaders awake at night.
By combining these skills we go the extra step and aim to delight rather than simply please, and ensure that clients give us repeat mandates. Long standing relationships, rather than transactional work, benefits us all.

Finding exceptional leadership candidates is a challenge. The best individuals are usually already employed, well compensated and content in their jobs. Regardless of economic conditions, the demand for leadership always exceeds the supply. As retained executive search consultants, we consistently deliver top leadership talent with speed and efficiency.
Working on a retained basis means we do charge an upfront fee to the client to conduct a search however this is the most successful approach to headhunting top talent. For a retained fee we will operate on an exclusive basis meaning the position will only be filled through us therefore no duplication of sourcing, headhunting, advertising, interviewing candidates but most importantly exclusivity also from us that we will put 100% of our undivided time on your vacancy. We work very closely with our clients and really take our time to understand the business, culture of the company, the best fit and technical specifics.
We use an agreed methodology to find the best person for the poisition, taking into account all the desirables of the vacancy, extensive mapping of the market for uncovered specific gems that will build the future of your company. The process is rigorous, with weekly presentations to the client of shortlisted candidates, market knowledge whilst reaching out to candidates, status of people engaged with, statistics and feedback, summarising the weeks outcome and what candidates are being spoken to before interviews commence.
The searches are confidential and conducted under NDA if required for your peace of mind while engaging with candidates. Only genuinely interested candidates are presented who have been met in person by us. This is our preferred method of hiring as it guarantees results and commitment from candidates, the client and us. As a retained recruiter we are committed to a dedicated service level, usually a retained search can be very difficult and these projects can be rather lengthy and hard to uncover the best talent.
We often hear from clients other contingency recruiters will simply move on to another vacancy or client where they believe they can get an easier win when presented to search for these specific roles. We genuinely love what we do, respect our clients and keep speaking to the market until we find the right person.
Our commitment to you is the reason our clients keep coming back.

When running a contingent search our consultants tend to work with many assignments concurrently. Our recruiters offer their service with no money up front, and they get paid for candidates who are hired from resumes they present and deliver to you.
Targeted candidates are approached and a quicker less detailed presentation than retained searching is conducted. Our recruiters leverage networks, advertising and online databases to identify a large number of resumes of candidates who likely fit your criteria. Resumes are shared with the client who then takes a more hands-on approach to reviewing and evaluating the candidates.
By virtue of the payment upon placement nature of this business model, contingent recruiters are motivated to move the process through as quickly as possible however service and attention to detail is never compromised. This method of recruiting is more suitable to mid-management roles.
