How to assess talent

Before any headhunting project can go ahead it is crucial to understand the client’s exact needs for the role. This can be summarised by what goals the client needs the hire to fulfil. Our researchers will then search the market to find the candidates who can fill that need. When this has been done our headhunters will propose the best possible candidates for our clients to interview.

We're Here to Help

It is important to note that our researchers target both the “active” and “passive” markets. Active candidates are currently searching for a role, submitting CVs, networking and are readily available. Passive candidates are not doing this and are often resistant to approaches. During the course of a professional lifetime, all candidates will exist in an active or passive state. By not approaching the passive market you are ignoring a substantial portion of the total market, and statistically where the best talent often resides.

How do you research?

A combination of deep internet searches using custom algorithms, monitoring of all candidates in various sectors and thousands of hours of networking in all industries.

What if there are no candidates?

There is always a candidate. Our job is not necessarily to get the best candidate – they may be too expensive or simply unwilling to move no matter what we throw at them. Our job is to get the best possible so you get the greatest value out of any hire.
