Embrace new ways of thinking - We believe that the world of executive search or 'headhunting' is changing rapidly, driven not only by advances in technology and social media, but by the desire of both candidates and clients alike to be able to work with a search firm who they can trust, who will fulfill their expectations. Through sheer hard work we have now built both a network and reputation to not only rival the larger players in the market, but to challenge them. We are confident that the service we offer is second to none.

Expect the unexpected - In business as in life things change, and as your commercial search partner, we will work with you to adapt the project accordingly whether that's revising the brief, speeding up the process, or finding an interim executive to hold the reins until a candidate is appointed.

Our success rate speaks for itself and we are proud to be one of the fastest growing executive search companies in the Retail; Leisure and Consumer Services sectors.

CANDIDATE

CLIENT

In dealings with clients, Suzie is committed to understanding the business and its unique challenges; she then immerses herself into the culture and personal relationships. In dealings with candidates, she is always mindful that we represent the client first and ourselves second. Our manner, approach and attitude are geared towards effective representation of the client’s brand and their values. This results in candidates, even unsuccessful ones, gaining a positive experience of their search encounter. Suzie regularly receive calls from candidates, often senior executives of major corporations or key rising stars in smaller business who value her advice and feedback. She will always give totally honest advice and indeed will encourage them to approach other firms if it is in their best interest to do so. The result of this approach is that she enjoys excellent relationships with senior candidates and clients alike.
