Executive search is used for middle to senior and executive management positions, where the required skill set can only be found in a limited number of companies or it is inappropriate to advertise because the appointment is of a sensitive nature.

This remains our most proactive service, producing excellent results.

In times of increasing skill shortages, this is the only way to target and attract candidates of the appropriate calibre.

Fresh research is conducted for each assignment examining specific organisations and individuals that are relevant to the client's business.

The process is as follows:

Source List: Following an initial brief with our Client, the research team will put together a list of suitable target organisations within an appropriate geographical area.

Identification:Individuals at the correct level are identified. The client receives a list of candidates for approval in order to identify those known to be of the right calibre and to discount those known unsuitable (from previous contact etc).

Candidate Assessment: Each candidate is contacted (head hunted) in confidence and assessed on their suitability and intention to move. The consultant will interview all candidates face to face that are deemed appropriate. We provide full interview reports consisting of, an individual appraisal of the candidates, their experience, qualifications and abilities and the candidates' resume.
The consultants will also be able to credibly address concerns candidates may have about the opportunity relative to their own careers and their prospects within the client organisation.
The high quality of the dialogue between our consultants and candidates greatly increases the prospect of attracting the best talent to our client organisations.

Short-list: From our interview process, the most suitable candidates will be short-listed and recommended to meet our client. We will arrange and manage this process, normally to take place at the client's premises or, alternatively, at a confidential location if required.

To conclude the process, we will assist in making an offer to the chosen candidate and the negotiation of these terms. We also help in obtaining suitable references.

We are passionate about assuring that hired candidates make a positive impact that exceeds our clients' expectations. We follow up with candidate and client at regular intervals to check on performance and fit. This continuing bond with candidates and clients is one of the reasons that more than two-thirds of our assignments are repeat engagements for existing clients.
