How is this different to other recruitment services?
We work with our clients exclusively, taking a headhunt approach for each of the roles we recruit for.
We've taken all of the bits of executive search and packaged them into a speedier service, giving the same quality result, for all levels of marketing professionals, and we let you track our progress every step of the way.
How long does this take?
About 4 weeks typically before offer acceptance. With notice periods stretching to 3 months more frequently, it's best to prepare at least 4 months ahead of when you would like your marketing to be elevated.
Our services cost the same as typical no win no fee recruitment
How do our clients track progress?
We send you a live link (accessible by all decision-makers) where feedback on the role and level of interest can be quickly understood.
We don't know what marketing talent we need!
We got you, many of our clients are a bit at sea with what skills they could or should bring on board to take their business to the next level.
We can work with you to discuss the market and talent availability across industry sectors.
In more complex situations we work with an accredited marketing audit partner who can consult with you in finer detail to produce a template for impact.
Can you help us create a specification for the right person?
Of course, we've been creating job ad's for years, we know what is appealing to marketing professionals and can help you put your best foot forward.
Can you guide us on how to interview for the best talent?
Absolutely, it's not straightforward in marketing, and some valuable skills are hard to see initially but we've honed a few techniques.
What if you don’t find someone?
We keep going until we do. If it appears after our thorough search that talent doesn't exist within the parameters required (salary, location etc) we'll regroup with you, demonstrate our findings and reframe to expand to the best alternative.
How do you know you've reached the whole market?
We're executive search accredited, this means we have a broad toolkit of ways and the determination to contact people. We also use leading external researchers to complement our searches out of market or at exec level. Searches often extend to 100's of people within the criteria.
What happens if the person can't fulfil the role brief to the standard we discussed?
We are very confident in the rigour of our profiling of people and opportunities. So much so that we'll offer a free replacement for up to 6 months if it transpires that the ability doesn't match the role.
We can’t afford search services right now, can you help in other ways?
Yes, we can consult with you to give an 'everything but the search' service. This includes job description creation, creation of interview questions, metrics for sifting and scoring specifically for the opportunity, guidance on briefing stage, and induction guides. We also offer attendance at interview and sifting response as optional add ons.
Woah woah woah, I'm a marketer - are you too busy to help me?
No! We can also work exclusively on your behalf. Part of our process is updating the local business community on the new marketing talent we're representing.
