Our Service  

We are seasoned executive search consultants with a demonstrable track record in delivering retained recruitment campaigns for single positions and entire teams. Due to our years of experience in the market at a national level, we are not only able to contact relevant professionals in your area, but also those that are looking to move – giving us an edge over other localised businesses. 

Our detailed search process involves numerous stages needed to identify, approach, and secure the best possible candidate(s) for the position you are looking to fill. 

Our Process

  • Initial consultation

    We take a detailed job brief with the hiring manager, and also the relevant team to gain understanding of the role

    Your business and the office culture are also discussed and explored to fine-tune the people we target

    All relevant stakeholders are detailed and contacted/met if necessary

  • Market mapping and target identification

    From your brief we map your industry and any associated sectors that may contain potential candidates

    We then compare against the agreed competencies and experience required to undertake the role

    The long list is then submitted to the client for review – this is where you can discount and highlight certain people and gives total transparency

  • Approaches

    We will then make several approaches to each professional and present them with your opportunity

    They will be telephone interviewed thoroughly and information updated on the long list with relevant notes

    Interest will be garnered and skills/personality assessed against the requirements of the position

  • Short List

    After submitting the final longlist, we will then start forming the short list by consulting with you, the client

    We will meet and interview our top contenders to further assess potential and fit based on competency and experience

    A shortlist of usually 3 to 6 candidates will then be submitted with full interview notes

  • Interview Stages

    We are there throughout your interview process to feedback to the candidates and manage that process

    All candidates will be kept fully informed during the interview stages of feedback and next stages for transparency

    With some searches, we will actually attend the first interviews should you want our presence there as we are fully trained competency based interviewers

  • Offer, acceptance and start

    Once all candidates are met, we then progress to the offer stage. You will have full details of the candidates current package and future requirements

    To reduce the chance of counter-offers, we make sure we are aware of the non-financial motivators

    We will then stay very close to the candidate during their notice period should any further issues/questions arise

“I have had the pleasure of working with Dan for the past 3 years. Dan supported and placed me into my first interim role at Ricoh. During my 13 month placement Dan continued to keep contact with me and the client to ensure there were no issues. He has a very personable nature and really understands the importance of building relationships with not just the client but also his candidates. Although my placement finished nearly two years ago we are still in regular contact. He is one of the best recruiters I have had the pleasure to work with and I would have no hesitation in recommending him.”
