With over 20 years’ experience, our specialist marketing executive search consultants work with large and scaling businesses to identify and engage marketing leaders and build high performance marketing teams. We have a vast network of talent, deep background knowledge and strong expertise across different market sectors. Regardless of the flavour of the brief, we’re a marketing executive search firm who know where to look to find what you need.

Marketing retained search

 

Our executive marketing recruitment process explained:

  1. Research – every search begins with a clear definition of requirements. Our lead consultants work closely with you to understand exactly what you need from this senior marketing appointment and the impact you’re looking for from this hire, identifying key leadership competences, industry experience and personal qualities to benchmark candidates.
  1. Candidate identification and process management – we use multiple channels to identify high-performing marketing executive candidates, complemented by our network of global connections, providing tailored referrals and recommendations. Only individuals who demonstrate genuine leadership capability against the original brief are presented at shortlist stage.
  1. Referencing – every project involves extensive referencing to support our original analysis and candidate recommendations.
 

What makes us unique?

 

·        Our marketing search focus makes us different and our specialist domain knowledge across marketing gives us a clear advantage. Our consultants have worked within marketing departments themselves, knowing first-hand what a good hire looks like, and how to get there.

 

·        Our speed of delivery. As we already have a network of candidates which is 35,000 strong, we do not have to spend time at the ‘discovery’ phase of work that other marketing search firms need to. This means that we can deliver much more quickly, without compromising quality and achieve better outcomes for our clients. We can deliver a shortlist to you within 4-5 weeks.

 

·        As a specialist marketing executive search agency, we understand what motivates marketers to join a new opportunity. As part of our engagement strategy, we take all candidates through a briefing process to include the business strategy, the marketing roadmap, what the objectives are the for business and where their skills can help with business growth. We also discuss business culture and only put forward candidates on the shortlist that we feel will match the business culture perfectly.

 

Marketing headhunter

What is the difference between our role as a recruiter and a marketing retained search firm? 

Marketing retained search means that we as a recruitment agency charge a third of the overall fee on engagement of our services. This allows us the time to take a full briefing with regards to the type of professional that can fulfil the responsibilities involved and complement the culture of your wider brand.

We then can move on to an in-depth research phase of the project, leaving no stone unturned in finding the best match for your business. We also take the time to scour the competitor market through LinkedIn and other means, to effectively headhunt top talent in the market, which has previously demonstrated the skills and attributes that you require.  

On completion of a shortlist, a further third of the fee is taken, before we move onto interviews, second interviews and offer stages of the process. Only on completion and placement of an individual within that role, is the last instalment of the fee due.
