Executive Search

Executive Search Solutions

Our Search & Selection service is designed for companies looking to recruit senior executives, managers, or 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 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.

  • I had a great experience with Certus Recruitment Group! They helped with the entire process from the moment I submitted my CV to the very day before I started work. Megan S. and Gabby were super friendly and professional, I'd definitely recommend Certus to anyone looking for a job. I still can't believe I met with them on Wednesday and by Friday I had an amazing job offer!​
