Our executive search process

Finding the right executive for your business is crucial, so you can get the maximum impact for your business. The development of our recruitment process over the past 14 years has allowed us to identify the best streamlined method to approach the market, keeping engagement, to secure the best senior talent for your vacancy. 

Scoping and agreement of terms


Before anything else, we want to know all the detail. By having an in-depth meeting, we explore the role, your organisation, key objectives, the sort of person you are looking for, the package available, and a collaborative agreement of terms.

Market mapping and insights


As market specialists, we take recruitment seriously. Our expert consultants will map the market to see which professionals may be suitable, researching to provide valuable intelligence around current market trends, benchmarking, the demand for this type of role and candidate availability.

Discreet search (headhunting)


We have an effective market strategy with various methods of finding, attracting, and highlighting suitable candidates for the vacancy. Channels include conversing with existing candidate networks, exploring our targeted database of senior candidates, using one-on-one social media outreach, and recommendations. 

Relationship building and attraction


By approaching an existing candidate network and our unique database, we have developed strong relationships with market leaders and individuals with a career history of positive influence, impact, and achievement. They also place trust in us in finding suitable opportunities for their own career ambitions. Reaching out to the right specialists is vital. 

Shortlisting and assessment


An important part of our process is defining an appropriate shortlist, with committed candidates who are genuinely interested in being a part of your organisation’s journey. Screening is vigorous to ensure no time is wasted further along the process. 



Across the headhunting stage, we will provide you with a weekly or bi-weekly update, so you are kept well-informed on progress. We believe transparency and expertise is the key to a successful partnership.

Interview management


Once we have distinguished your interview availability as well as the candidates, we will organise interview invitations and post-interview feedback, to ensure all parties benefit from the interview experience. We understand senior hiring processes can sometimes take months, so we will ensure the candidate remains engaged with your company and the opportunity. 

Project and offer management


Once you have selected the right senior specialist to hire, we will advise and guide all parties through the process. We can help negotiate and manage expectations around packages, notice periods and onboarding. Again as timescales from notice to start date can be long, we can help ensure your successful candidate stays engaged.
