Executive Search

Executive Search Solutions

Our Search & Selection service is designed for companies looking to recruit senior executives, managers or a specialist positions. There are three reasons a search project is used;

  1. Confidentiality is of significant importance

  2. Very specific skill and experience is required, likely to come from a competitor or similar

  3. The project is constrained by time with a firm completion date required

The key difference between a search project and a standard recruitment exercise is that applicants are likely to be passive and will need to be approached directly.

A search service is divided into three stages: research, shortlisting and placement. The cost of the service is spread across these three stages. Due to the nature of the Search & Selection service, we are able to work to very specific requirements and to set timescales.

Search & Selection is particularly useful to organisations looking to recruit Senior Executives without revealing to their market that there is a senior vacancy or that a key member of the management team is leaving. Confidentiality is a key element of any search exercise and, as such, how the details of the company and the vacancy are revealed form a key part of the exercise.

Testimonials Default Image
  • ​I found Gabriele to be extremely professional and proactive which made the whole process far less stressful than a job hunt can sometimes be. She made a point of keeping me updated when the process was dragging out and was always open and transparent around the situation. I really appreciated her approach and I feel like she took the time to understand my background and requirements before putting roles in front of me. I dealt with a few recruiters during my job hunt and I'm sure you will know that not all are as methodic. It was a pleasure to deal with Gabriele and Certus and will absolutely be referencing you guys to friends/colleagues etc.

  • Very positive experience with Certus. A big thanks to Jack who found very suitable candidates in no time at all. We left with a new member of staff after only 10 days notice for interviews. Also thanks to Tom for his input too. Cheers Certus​

  • The company was so helpful in finding me a job! I worked together with Gabi mostly, who was always happy to talk to me and answer any questions. She also prepped me so well for my interview, with information packages and mock interviews, which resulted in me getting the job! I would highly recommend this recruitment agency!​

  • Jimmy Bower and Megan Speet helped me secure my perfect job - they helped me through the application process and then through all the interviews. They were always there to offer encouragement and support no matter what time of day. They were both professional, helpful and knowledgeable, and most of all, friendly, which made the entire process much more pleasant! Highly recommend Certus.​
