We recommend retained solutions to our clients who are looking for candidates for key leadership positions or roles requiring niche skill sets. Given the strategic importance of these positions, there is often a degree of urgency and confidentiality needed, and a retained approach is advised.
We have teams across each of our six practices that are expert in delivering retainer campaigns. We act quickly, allocating a dedicated team of skilled consultants and researchers to ensure a thorough market search is conducted. Within an agreed time frame, you’ll be presented with highly relevant candidates.
The advantage of a retained search is that it will cover the whole market, irrespective of whether the potential candidate is on our database or not. We’ll act swiftly on receiving the brief, implementing a variety of search methods to locate the best candidates. We take full responsibility for the entire search including the message to market. Our approach is targeted and specific and we meet all prospective candidates, screening them for cultural fit before considering an introduction.
Targeted headhunting service
Our headhunting service targets specific organisations that have been identified by either you or us, as being likely to contain candidates with the right experience, skills and cultural fit for your organisation. Once we’ve identified strong candidates within these organisations, we’ll contact them to assess their current situation, experience and motivation. If appropriate we’ll also take the opportunity to introduce your company as a potential future employer and discuss any available opportunities you may have. The result is a highly relevant population of passive candidates who are looking for the right opportunity and are interested in talking to you.
