Retained Executive Search

Business Meeting


Heading towards 20 years in the recruitment industry, working with more than 25 organisations and a career that has transitioned from agency to outsourced to client side means you will benefit from a lot of experience should you engage our retained executive search services.

More so, 225 odd retained search processes have been procured, managed, owned and delivered in some way, shape or form. Be that via a SHREK, mainstream, boutique or in-house team as well as several fully personally owned end-to-end...I know how the process works well and what red flags to watch out for along the way.

Having worked across 10 industries & sectors, searches have spanned 30 countries and 70 markets - so you'll receive a well versed understanding about global cultures, their drivers and motivators from one region to another. 

Relationship management is key to success in exec search. Working with ELT, SLT, boards, investors and other critical senior stakeholders have been a staple part of consultancy and advisory roles the since 2013. Working also with 1000's of candidates means being fully committed to ensuring that everyone is treated with respect and professional courtesy deserved throughout the process, regardless of the outcome.

Again, perhaps a pre-stage that goes on to mature in to a full search. Here you may simply wish to gain intelligence and insights in to competitors, reward benchmarks, structured assessment processes without the commitment or exposure to an external hire.
