Executive Search

Executive search is a “no compromise approach” and is about gaining access to, and timely placement of, the highest calibre people. It is without question the methodology of choice for the identification and recruitment of high calibre professionals with specific skills.

The ability to make insightful decisions about people and appoint exceptional talent is the most enduring source of competitive advantage.Executive search concentrates on helping clients achieve this advantage through the identification, assessment and recruitment of the most talented business leaders.

Our executive search process will give you access to the broadest possible pool of candidates with the relevant skills. We target relevant companies and ascertain organisational structures, proactively identifying the most appropriately skilled individuals. We then approach and assess them directly, using competency-based interviewing models. Our consultants are passionate about ensuring that hired candidates make a positive impact that exceeds our clients’ expectations.

Our dedicated research team will handle the initial identification of potential candidates and make contact to discuss the opportunity in depth. Our researchers and consultants pinpoint high quality candidates and generate exceptional shortlists to meet our client’s specifications.

Our data management software system, “Libero”, was created to allow us to access our firm’s knowledge and expertise for the benefit of clients. We fully use and apply these tools in every assignment to assure quality and comprehensiveness. This adaptable project management capability ensures we can track the progress of all assignments from inception through to completion.
