Retained Search

A retained search is the most effective way to identify the best talent in the market.Our best practice is about finding the best person within the market for a specific position. For every assignment we follow the following search strategy:


We look for your Strategic objectives and assignment brief, methods and time-scales. Within this initial step we will provide progress reports, Provide up-to-date analysis and meet regularly.


We will compile a ‘long list’ of 5-8 candidates which include formatted CVs, biographies and additional relevant notes. We then advise the client to select up to 4 candidates which we will then formally interview with a view to creating a final short list.


From our detailed interview process a small selection of candidates we highly recommend will be provided. Your interview process then takes over until you are ready to make a decision.


We look to add value during this process by assisting with negotiations, managing potential counter offers and supporting the resulting resignation process.
