Senior Talent Acquisition
We specialise in key senior roles, primarily in financial services.
Recruiting at senior level requires a very specific approach and if we were to sum it up in one word it would be 'nuanced'. There is a limited pool of people, they are seldom actively looking and they are often reluctant to 'Apply' to an online advertisement (if they even see it).
Think of us as a being part of your own Talent Acquisition team; the part you engage on an ad-hoc basis for positions that you may not have the capacity to work on, problematic roles, or for roles where you cannot approach the market directly.
We take this workload off your desk by packaging your organisation, the role, and the profile of person required in our S‑Map© infographic. This one-pager replaces the traditional Job Spec and is designed to capture the attention of busy senior people.
Our expertise lies in uncovering and approaching the right people to present your opportunity accurately and professionally; our process makes it easy for both client and candidate to have productive conversations from the very outset.
An often overlooked basic, but critical, element in a successful search is clear communication; in this regard, we are highly skilled at understanding and relating the nuances of all parties’ positions and concerns throughout the entire process to successful conclusion.
We are delighted to have a video call to discuss your senior hiring needs, and to outline our own process which is designed to quickly secure the people you need.
Our Outplacement service assists organisations where, unfortunately, they have to say farewell to some of their people. We have an experienced team that provides professional support to people transitioning from your employment to move forward, both emotionally and practically, to be well prepared for the next phase of their careers.
Companies providing effective outplacement send an important signal about their people culture and employer brand, which has been shown to increase loyalty and engagement amongst remaining employees.
