Our in-house research team

Our in-house research team gives us a clear advantage over other boutique firms. Not only can we build an understanding of the skills that the successful candidate will need, but also develop a thorough understanding of a client’s corporate culture. This is absolutely essential if we are to identify candidates who can make a real difference to their business. It’s a crucial stage that often gets side stepped when the recruitment process is outsourced. Our research team also gives us the ability to respond quickly and carry out multiple search assignments for all of our clients.

Working in close partnership with our consultants, the team is primarily responsible for the maintenance of FileFinder, our global database. We use research to map the market, collate information on prospective candidates and team structure, carry out preliminary profiling and make the initial contact with the identified candidates.

Our research specialists work exclusively on executive search assignments across all of our functional areas of expertise. The team itself is a vital element in the successful completion of any search.
