Why Choose A Dedicated Search Consultancy?

Executive search agencies or search consultants provide an in depth and comprehensive step-by-step recruitment process to ensure the perfect fit for businesses. Taking care in specifying the job requirements and specifications, building a shortlist of quality candidates ensuring the interview and selection process is as smooth as possible. 

Not only do executive search firms have extensive industry knowledge but also a wide database of candidates that may be ideal for your business. This is especially important for businesses wanting to find the perfect candidate quickly. 

What are the benefits of a search consultant?

Executive search has a wide range of benefits for high performing businesses: 

  • Working with an industry expert, executive search agencies will focus on candidates who fit perfectly within your business, using your specific requirements. 

  • Your industry expert knows the market inside and out, knowing where to find and select the top talent within the industry. 

  • Executive search will usually be for specific and specialist roles that will have very specific requirements and prerequisites. 

  • This method is significantly more time efficient than traditional recruitment techniques as executive search agencies will actively search for candidates as opposed to posting adverts on job boards and awaiting applications. 

  • Overall, executive search reduces the risk of a bad hire by hand selecting top quality candidates that fit the business and specific outlined requirements.

Does executive search actually work?

Executive search firms are dedicated to placing the perfect, high performing candidate into your business. Some hiring departments may not have the time and resource to fully search the market, draw on connections and build a list of performing candidates but that is why executive search works: the time, detail, depth and dedication.

Executive search firms dive into detail and depth for each project to find the top talent or niche profile which other traditional recruitment methods such as LinkedIn or job boards may not do.

What Clients Say

"You could go an entire career and not come across a recruiting talent like Jonathan. Jonathan recruited me for a role during his time at SPS International. One might be skeptical of a young recruiter like Jonathan at first glance, but over the course of the time that we worked together, he showed himself to be a star. I began to admire Jonathan for his diligence and his work ethic.


With an 8 hour time difference between us, Jonathan was available and engaged throughout the recruiting process with a level of care that is uncommon across the recruiting profession. He is the consummate professional and carries himself with poise, composure, and care for his clients. You will never feel like you're just another commission check for him. The best part is that he's still early in his career and growing at an impressive trajectory. Our interactions left an impression on me that shaped my own behaviour."
