Our core business is Retained Executive Search ("Head Hunting") and we remain focused on this specific area of expertise. We understand the process. We understand the industry. We understand what it takes to deliver the results that will exceed your expectations. Our clients retain us to find senior-level executives, including chief executives, subsidiary and divisional executives and functional heads, e.g., finance, marketing, legal and other C-level managers, across a broad range of industries and sectors.
When time, complexity and confidentiality are critical, clients choose our Retained Executive Search option. Executive Search is particularly appropriate when the need is urgent, where the hire will have a significant impact on company performance, or new opportunities emerge that must be quickly addressed. Retained recruiting represents a commitment from both sides and sends a strong message to candidates that the company highly values this opportunity.
Executive Search is not just about finding great candidates. It is about understanding the need behind the search and relating that to candidates' ambition. We form close partnerships with our clients to understand the nature of their business and their strategic goals. We are then in the best position to recruit an individual with the right competencies and experience to meet our clients' specific leadership needs.
Business intelligence is a critical component of successful Retained Executive Search. To ensure that the candidate you hire will ultimately drive business success for your company, we invest upfront in comprehensive research. For each assignment we assemble a team, comprised of experienced consultants and research associates, in order to bring both industry and functional expertise to the search.
We begin with a rich discussion of critical business issues that the recruitment will address and the essential requirements of the position. Our retained recruiters' former careers give them real-life sensitivity to many aspects of the performance requirements for the role. 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. Given the background and seniority of our consultants, most candidates feel the people approaching them are peers in the business world and usually value their insight and advice.
For critically important hires, getting everything right the first time is crucial for success. We listen to all of the dynamics involved in the retained recruiting process, ensuring that everyone in your organisation and our organisation are on the same page. Our retained recruiters are true business partners with your company. By clarifying expectations and minimizing misunderstandings at the outset, we ensure that your organisation moves efficiently through the retained recruiting process.
Finding the right candidate often means looking where others can't or haven't thought to look. No matter how challenging the assignment, we will deliver the results our clients have been promised. Retained recruiters identify interesting candidates from a wide range of sources: their own professional networks, systematic research, social media, social intelligence, etc.
Our name attracts candidates who trust us to open doors for exceptional career opportunities. Indeed, our commitment to manage long-term candidate relationships further strengthens this bond and enhances our access to top talent, to our clients‘ benefit. However, success is not measured by whether candidates can do the job, but by how successfully and how quickly they deliver results. That's why we search for organisation-fit best-in-class candidates.
Hunting Heads. Because good comes second to best.
