Permanent & Specialist Search
We work with clients from entry level all the way through to c-suite executive introductions within our sector specialisms. Our consultants work within one key sector and focus on a specific level, meaning they are experts in their field and their market knowledge and candidate portfolio is second to none.
Specialist market mapping, thoroughness and a proactive approach are the key areas of praise we receive from clients. The key to our success is the attraction and development of ‘passive’ candidates which are more often than not, the best candidates in the market who need to be made aware of opportunities and the clients behind them. Two thirds of our permanent placements come from referrals; through our network and our awareness of the higher profile individuals who will not be applying to positions.
International & Retained Assignments
Change to our Australian and New Zealand presence has allowed a national and International reach for all our clients, information and candidate sharing between our offices is a unique attraction point for our client base. The world’s workforce are becoming extremely flexible and intrigued about international experiences, that is why our global blueprint has contributed to many relocation successes for our client portfolio
Retained assignments allow our clients to have one point of contact representing them in the market, this is not only time saving but also crucial for their PR when headhunting their direct competitors. Searches have detailed timelines and weekly itinerary allowing the client to know exactly where their search project is. More often than not the whole market is mapped and presented before approaches are made meaning no stones are left un-turned for the client. Against all preconceptions, our search service is often better value than our contingent service, we know that we have the full attention from our clients and reward them accordingly.
Our clients who pay a percentage of the fee in advance are literally buying our consultant's time and taking them away from their desk to solely focus on their assignment. The benefits are first refusal of all candidates, a dedicated resourcer, comprehensive market mapping and controlled and positive PR within the market.
