Search (Headhunt)

Search (or Headhunting) can be a very effective method of identifying and engaging confidentially with talented individuals who have specific experience or skills.

Search is most effective when the target population can be clearly defined.  By its nature each search list is tailored to your specific requirements, taking into account factors such as; skill-set, seniority, geography, industry sector, specific competitors, company turnover or listing, to name but a few.

Once we have formed a detailed understanding of your requirements, we thoroughly research the market to determine where we are likely to find your targets before compiling this list for your approval.

Once agreed, we will identify potential candidates who meet the relevant criteria before making a direct and positive approach on your behalf.

Search can be used on it’s own or as part of a wider sourcing strategy.  We manage the whole process from Initial Consultation to successful placement and beyond.

Please contact one of the Partners for an initial discussion or email us and we will contact you.
