Our Executive Search service is built upon relationships with our clients, candidates and wider network. Finding the best executives relies on a consultative approach, some lateral thinking and meticulous analysis.
The best executive leaders define an organisation.
We assess the complex combination of attributes that define the perfect candidate; from industry knowledge and experience, through functional expertise and ability, to behavioural attributes and the shared values that make a good cultural fit
Financial services companies need a search consultancy that takes responsibility from the outset and can be trusted to deliver. We prefer working to precise deadlines because we know that urgency drives clarity and focus. Our consultancy has the breadth of experience to work from diverse perspectives, drawing on different methodologies to perform our role with agility; solving problems and cutting through ambiguity to provide you with the best talent.
Executive search stretches beyond identifying candidates with the correct experience, knowledge and skills. We assess the complex combination of attributes that define the perfect candidate; from industry knowledge and experience, through functional expertise and ability, to behavioural characteristics and the shared values that make a good cultural fit. We passionately support our clients’ diversity programmes and work tenaciously to ensure any search reaches the most diverse talent pool possible.
Delivering success comes down to a combination of core methodologies, an extensive network, rigour, creativity and agility. Research is performed on an ongoing basis so that when your urgent search requirement arises, much of the groundwork is done. Executive Search mandates are often at the senior, business-critical level so they are usually sensitive. Our diligent networking activity enables us to maintain the levels of discretion and integrity that are so important to our clients. This is how we have worked, in lockstep with our client partners, to build executive teams that drive growth and transformation.
The most important part of the process for us is having a detailed briefing call. We consult with you to understand the requirement and ensure we can articulate the opportunity with precision and ensure that our messaging to the market is totally aligned. We discuss strategic direction, general responsibilities, projects and key challenges.
Whilst many search processes are to replace, given the dynamics of our client portfolio, we often work with partners who are creating new roles or building new divisions. In these more fluid situations, we draw on our experience and network to provide a consultative service that helps you achieve the result you need.
We help you to build a shortlist including any less intuitive options that we feel can add value to the selection process. We prepare our client, and the qualified shortlist of candidates, so that all parties can make a positive impression, putting you in a position to hire the best available people.
