Dedicated Search

When it comes to high quality hires, it should not be a race where recruiters are pitted against each other to get a candidate as quickly as possible.     

By using this approach businesses are putting all the focus on speed and ignoring the importance of the quality and suitability of the hire.  

Alternatively, by using a Dedicate Search, also known as a retained search, it guarantees you make the right hire for your business.


How does a Dedicated Search Work?

Instead of wasting time working with multiple agencies, when you use our Dedicated Search, we become your trusted partner, providing you with a committed and focused service.

We will work closely with you to establish your requirements and gain a comprehensive understanding of your business and company culture. We use a personal approach and become an extension of your team, providing you with market insights and valuable industry advice, such as compensation benchmarking.  We deliver an overview of the talent available in the market within the identified targeted competitors. Therefore, ensuring confidence that you have really reviewed all potential candidates for the role.


Improved Candidate Experience

Through our Dedicated Search, you can guarantee potential hires are not being inundated by multiple agencies and are instead treated with the utmost respect.

You also receive full control over the candidate experience, your employer brand and how you are being represented to the candidate market. Most candidates we approach for a dedicated search are not actively looking to change jobs and will only do so for the right opportunity. Therefore, it is paramount the initial approach to the candidate creates the impression of an exclusive and focused approach.

As an extension to your team, our dedicated consultant will provide candidates with a full overview of the opportunity and they will be able to answer any questions with ease. 


When to use a Dedicated Search?

A Dedicated Search can be used in several scenarios and not just for C-Level positions. Clients are regularly turning to dedicated search for a more bespoke, targeted and ultimately successful search.

Some of the scenarios in which a dedicated search is suitable include C Level Positions, Confidential Searches, Team Moves, Critical Hires, Niche Talent Pool, International Hires, New Markets, Diversity & Inclusion Hires, Succession Planning and Internal benchmarking.
