If you need insights to support with key business decisions, or to secure senior-level or difficult to source talent, Carrot Executive can help.

In both Market Insights and Executive Search, we'll work in partnership with you to deliver the intelligence you need, or to engage and attract the right talent to your business.



We pride ourselves on being honest and transparent, placing a focus on building long-term partnerships with our clients. Our services offer clear and timely communication, creating a stress-free experience. Our specialists are dedicated to understanding your particular requirements. 


Bespoke and Data-Driven:

We provide market insights on a range of data sources, uncovering information pertinent to your market and your strategy. All projects are designed bespoke to provide you with the data you need to make important business decisions.


Unique Pricing Model:

Our fees are calculated based on time spent, not as a percentage of salary, allowing you to see exactly what you are paying for and to budget confidently from the start.

Acquiring a company with a unique service or technology will complement and boost our own abilities, enabling our business to grow. Market Insights gives us an overview of which companies are out there, their key stats in terms of finance, talent, and location, and helps us decide where to focus our efforts. 

Market Insights Client

It's crucial we get this senior hire right, and our talent pool is very small. Executive Search gives us access to passive candidates, dedicated researchers and a better-quality shortlist. 

Executive Search Client

We're losing talent to competitors, and as we want to grow significantly, we need to be able to differentiate ourselves and attract top-quality candidates. Strategic Market Insights shows us what our competitors are doing, what candidates want and informs us on how we can improve our own talent attraction strategy.
