Our Executive Search Philosophy
We believe there is a need to be fully transparent and to work in close collaboration with clients throughout these key recruitment assignments. We offer a tangible fee structure based on project time, which offers clients a fixed cost, allowing them to budget from the start. And we add value with a thorough talent mapping phase, access to a suite of psychometric assessments, and support in the compilation of talent attraction documents.

What sort of roles are covered by executive search?
Executive search usually finds candidates for two different types of roles
- Business critical – roles that are normally Director level or above, where it is critical that the right hire is made.
- Hard to hire – roles that have proven difficult to recruit for previously, or where there are specific or niche requirements that make the potential talent pool very small.
It can also be used in situations where there are sensitivities and you don’t want to advertise the role to the wider market, as using a single agency helps keep things confidential and discreet.
How it works
Our process is designed to perfectly balance flexibility, efficiency, and tried and true methods.
Brief – we’ll take a thorough brief from you to understand the role and how it fits into your company, as well as the key elements of your brand so that we can better sell it to candidates
Proposal – after the brief we’ll write a proposal that details our strategy, the timelines, and costs of the project
Talent Map– our first step in executive search is to produce a thorough talent map that allows us to see all potential candidates and ensure that we have uncovered as much talent as possible.
Approach – once we have a talent map, we will approach suitable candidates using various contact methods.
Interviews – we’ll put forward the best candidates for you to review and, if you like them, interview. If you need any assistance with the interview process we’ll be there to assist.
Offer & Hire – after final interviews, when you’ve found the right candidate, we’ll help you to negotiate the offer.
