Search & Recruitment

Recruiting with Confidence

We act as trusted advisors to the companies with whom we work, becoming an extension of our clients’ organisations. Aside from our industry specialisms, our key differentiation is around our service offering, which not only includes a comprehensive search, but a best-in-class assessment process to ensure our clients only meet leaders in their fields.

In a market for talent as competitive and dynamic as we see today, networks and relationships are everything. Our track record and dedication to our markets ensures that we have access to unique talent pools and opportunities.

We are functionally focused to support you on all aspects of talent acquisition and recruitment strategy across Accountancy & Finance, and Innovation, Change & Transformation.

Retained Search

Identifying top leadership talent is a key enabler for organisations looking to drive growth and gain a competitive advantage in the ever changing world we live in.

To achieve this a discrete and targeted search is often required, one where a close partnership throughout the process is essential to achieving the right outcomes.

With over two decades of experience, our team have a strong track-record in creating clearly defined and structured search strategies for clients, enabling us to truly understand the right skill-set and organisational fit, before applying a proactive approach to identify high-calibre candidates.

Contingent Recruitment

Our team are discipline specialists with long-standing, trusted relationships, and a strong track-record in success delivery. This has enabled us to develop a market leading network of experienced professionals, giving us direct access to passive candidates and the ability offer honest and open advice when managing client engagements.

We are delivery focused, without compromising quality, and understand that communication is key throughout every stage of the process.  To ensure we can continue to meet demanding client timeframes, we have a dedicated team that work closely with our consultants on each search, enabling us to provide targeted profiles within tight deadlines.

Transition Coaching

A successful search process does not end on the acceptance of an offer. That period through exit of one organisation into the first few months of another is critical, as the new hire integrates with their new surroundings.

Working closely with both the new hire and relevant stakeholders, we are able to provide all our placed executives with an executive coach for a period of 6 months following the transition. Providing a forum for reflection and open dialogue, we distill candid feedback from both parties and work together towards an ongoing individual development plan.
