Executive Search

Executive Search and Selection is at the heart of our business, and we are one of the largest specialist firms in the country.

Our clients tell us they value our flexibility and willingness to go the ‘extra mile’.

And they appreciate our ability to provide a ‘package’ of tailored support through strong in-house capacity, for example in Business Psychology and Interim Management.

We bring a professional approach, and the confidence which comes from having worked with hundreds of organisations to find just the right person for a critical appointment – often at times of change and uncertainty.

We have developed a robust and successful approach to executive search and selection, which we continually review.

Every project is bespoke, and our search capability is renowned within the industry for its reach and the quality of our headhunters’ networks.

In fact, we typically call over 100 potential candidates, which we find through fresh research. This is in addition to the professional networks and contacts of our senior headhunters.

Our capability is both national and global. We recruited the Country Manager for India for a financial services recruiter, drawing together a shortlist from North Africa and the Middle East, as well as Europe. In another, the Managing Director of the Sri Lankan subsidiary of a UK group. The successful candidate was a German national previously based in New Delhi.

At the same time we are rooted locally. We maintain excellent networks in the regions, and our presence in a network of offices throughout the UK is crucial in understanding the local and regional context in which our clients operate.

The combination of international capacity and local understanding means that we can help organisations to recruit exceptional people. For example, the Director of Search Firm in Manchester, a key position in the region as well as the organisation, or the first Chief Executive of a PLC.

Getting a return on investment

Candidates tell us that our assessment process is like a development centre on its own. We see this as a good investment, because we recognise the cost of getting senior recruitment decisions wrong – and regard selection as a two-way process.

Above all, we understand that clients entrust us to deliver on one of their most important investment decisions – their leadership.

We operate in the public and private sectors, and are equally at home in both. We believe this brings benefits to both sectors, because so many organisations operate on the cusp between the two.

In fact, you might be surprised at just how many private sector candidates we have placed in top public sector jobs.

We are particularly experienced in recruiting senior, complex roles. On average we recruit a senior role every week. We have a strong track record within national, regional and local government, and we bring specialist expertise in several key industries.

For example, we work a great deal within regulated markets, and have recruited to regulatory bodies, as well as organisations within sectors such as health, transport, financial services, and leisure.

We are trusted advisers to our clients, and help them to build capacity and capability – often during periods of major change.

For example, one recent assignment followed the merger of two leading Business Process Outsourcing companies, and another the formation of a new NHS framework. We are frequently called in following major structural change, and have recently helped to recruit entire new teams in several large Recruitment Process outsourcing initiatives, central government departments and national agencies.
