The candidate-driven nature of our market, the number of roles available increasing faster than the qualified talent pool and the fierce competition for top talent, requires a Retained Search to attract that talent in most cases. This approach allows us to target top talent on your behalf with guaranteed assignment completion by an agreed date.

We account manage all of our assignments and expertly train all our associates in providing a consultative service, adding value to you by understanding your business, its challenges and recruitment needs. You will be provided with market intelligence; an overview of your competitors and the industry you work in advising on attraction methods and strategies where needed. An upfront fee allows exclusive access to approached candidates until the assignment is complete, guaranteeing you the best opportunity to secure the top talent in the industry.

Where a client has a need for a particular set of skills; is planning new ventures; short- and long-term projects or are looking to rapidly expand, we can source and place teams into the business. As a certain degree of staff turnover is inevitable, we ensure that we have identified replacement people within our own network who can be brought in quickly to fill any gaps.

This approach is aimed at critical hire or time sensitive mandates that aren’t executive level. Nevertheless, you can still expect to receive all our key success factors:

  • Thorough understanding of the business objectives driving the role and the culture of the organisation
  • Progress monitoring, flexibility and on-going dialogue to handle changes and issues as they arise
  • Certified Psychometric Profiling
  • An agreed plan for the assignment with interim reporting and shortlist interview dates pre-booked
  • Executive On boarding
  • Leadership Diversity
  • Counter-offer contingency planning
