To identify those high-calibre "passive" individuals. We don’t rely on databases, LinkedIn or advertising to find candidates.
We enable you to meet candidates that would not normally respond to recruiters or explore an opportunity. In-depth research ensuring no stones left uncovered to identify the best people. We don’t cut corners, skimp on research, or rely just on LinkedIn!
Including face to face briefing, interviewing and short-list presentation along with a detailed search report and full reference checking
Finding Potential psychometric profiling, situational judgement reports, management & leadership style report, numerical & verbal reasoning all including at no extra cost! We don't look to bump up our fee by charging you extra (at a huge mark-up) for these. All included within the fixed fee agreed at the outset.
We give the right message about your employer brand to the people we approach on your behalf. A thorough and professional briefing document is created - signed off by you - including images, links and additional information, therefore ensuring the candidate has all the details they need to make an informed decision. We then ensure they have a good experience whether successful or not.
We also support you in an honest and open way, questioning, challenging and advising in a professional manner.
Specialist knowledge, established networks and, more importantly a truly professional head-hunter who really does know what it takes to get candidates over the line
We understand the emotions passive candidates go through when exploring a new opportunity.
We support them on that journey and help them to make the right decisions
We take time to understand the culture of a business and hence the type of people that would best fit. Every assignment brief is taken face to face ideally at the location where the individual will be working. Wherever possible we like to meet all relevant stakeholders.
