Exec Search

For when you require a truly exceptional candidate

Top appointments transform businesses. When your company needs to fill a senior position at director level or higher, you can rely on our expertise to give you access to the kind of leadership you need for your organisation to excel.

Our mandate is simple: deliver a shortlist of exceptional candidates who can take your company further – gifted individuals who will inspire and lead.

We understand that there is no room for error with such critical appointments, and we embrace that responsibility. One of our directors will personally lead the project, with research support from consultants with strong senior networks and relationships.

All searches are carefully tailored to take into account market dynamics and client demands, with the end result being absolute client satisfaction. We have an intimate understanding of the industry and a global reach, meaning we can deliver remarkable candidates that other agencies may overlook.

Our Executive Search service is a transparent, flexible, comprehensive solution for your leadership hiring needs. Focused primarily on VP and C-level roles within the sectors listed above, we offer a broad and in-depth search process, ensuring you find the right talent for those key roles.

Specialisation. Too many firms try to do too much, spanning industries and disciplines and stretching themselves very thin. We are Life Sciences specialists, and this allows us to understand the technologies, market drivers, investment cycles and pressures of the sector in real depth. We’re also embedded in networks of industry-specific candidates, and can access those networks rapidly.

Transparency. There’s a real mystique to Executive Search, created in part by those who practice it. The prevailing wisdom is that clients should only be shown what they need to know, and that the inner workings of a search are for internal eyes only. We disagree. Each of our clients has access to shared folders which allow them to view all activity taking place around their assignments in real time, so they can be as involved as they want to be.

Service. We believe that hiring a new executive should be exciting, and that an in-depth search should be an enjoyable experience for all those involved. Our consultants’ commission payments and incentives are all tied to how they score in regard to customer experience, not just with the client and the hired candidate, but ALL candidates who were shortlisted. Just because someone didn’t get the job doesn’t mean that their opinion won’t count.

Delivery. A thorough methodology should mean that the overwhelming majority of searches can be delivered successfully and on time. As a firm, we target a delivery rate of 100% and consistently review performance against this. Additionally, rather than the traditional fee split of one third on retainer, one third on shortlist and one third on placement, we weight our fees heavily toward delivery, with a 20% - 30% - 50% structure. We’re happy to take our fair share of accountability for filling the roles we take on.
