Nimble Awareness

We have an insatiable appetite for discovery. Through our Research & Intelligence capabilities, we continuously gather insights into the world’s most exceptional senior talent. We know who is in demand, who would be willing to have a conversation and the remuneration they would expect.

We are a truly global business, with offices in the UK, U.S. and Australia, and each new search assignment is accompanied by a strict sourcing strategy.

While we will always examine the candidate intelligence we have at hand, we complement this with;

  • a target list of companies relevant to your business
  • proactive networking with industry leaders
  • referrals from trusted associates
  • rigorous online research

Evidence-Driven Outcomes

Everything we do is underpinned by fact. From exploring a world of senior talent with fresh research and intelligence to presenting you with people who have prevailed in an evidence-based assessment process.

We collaborate with you from the outset to define the technical and behavioural competencies necessary to excel in your business and the role. We then use this to find people who can demonstrate strong and authentic examples of the required competencies.

Industry-specific knowledge is invaluable to the recruitment process. It allows us to more closely assess the quality of a candidate and determine whether they are likely to meet the challenges facing your sector. We can accurately evaluate whether their level of expertise means they can get stuck into the role without delay or if there will be more of a learning curve involved.

Dedication to Partnering

We are with you from start to finish – and even beyond that. From the initial brief to the ongoing support once the successful candidate is placed, at every stage we sustain communication and sheer transparency.

This comes in the form of a dedicated delivery team comprising a Senior Client Partner, a Research & Intelligence specialist, dedicated marketing support and an Executive Sponsor. We also accompany this with regular discussions and weekly reports detailing the search progress and additional market intelligence gathered.

We’ve found that true partnership is something you must work towards and our track record with clients is one we proudly stand by;

  • 100% re-utilisation by clients since 2006
  • Average time of 6.8 weeks from project sign-off to shortlist
