For Companies

An Overview


An independent Executive Search business, with a track record across several industry sectors including General Manufacturing & Engineering, Building & Consumer Products (manufacture & distribution), Automotive & Aerospace, Infrastructure & Construction, Technology, Energy & Utilities, FM and Support Services.

I recruit across a variety of functions within these sectors, encompassing appointments from senior management (from salaries of circa £60k) to operating & main board, working with SME’s to PLC’s, including businesses with venture capital & private equity backing. I have recruited across most functional areas including: MD/CEO, Divisional MD/Director, Commercial, Operational, Technical, Sales & Marketing, Procurement, Supply Chain & Logistics, Finance & HR. I’m based in the West Midlands, close to Birmingham Airport, so easy for UK wide access. I have completed assignments throughout the UK and internationally.

I believe in being honest and fair, professional and thorough. I am passionate about delivering an exceptional service to my customers, both companies and individuals alike. The result is a service which is as individual and outstanding as the candidates I find for my clients. I have a guaranteed proven process and a successful track record having started in recruitment in 2000 before moving into executive search a year later.


Key Details

Confidential Proactive Search - access the best people


 To identify those high-calibre "passive" individuals. I don’t rely on databases, LinkedIn or advertising to find candidates.   

I 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. I don’t cut corners, skimp on research, or rely just on LinkedIn!  

Defined transparent process - outlined in full


 Including face to face briefing, interviewing and short-list presentation along with a detailed search report and full reference checking 

Candidate profiling and executive coaching: add-on services to validate your choices and help to retain / develop the talent you bring in

Professional support and reputation enhancement


I give the right message about your employer brand to the people I approach on your behalf.  I ensure they have a good experience whether successful or not. I also support you in an honest and open way 

In-depth expertise honed over 20 years


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 

 I understand the emotions passive candidates go through when exploring a new opportunity.  I support them on that journey and help them to make the right decisions 

Cultural match and personality fit


 I 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 I like to meet all relevant stakeholders.

Fair & clear commercial agreements and long-term accountability


No more ambiguous fee agreements which lead to a nasty surprise when you receive the final invoice.  All assignments are guaranteed for 12 months – in the unlikely event the individual leaves during this period I’ll find a replacement at no further cost
