Targeted Search Recruitment Specialists

Why use targeted search as a recruitment methodology?

When you need to find specific candidates with sector and functional expertise who are not actively seeking a new role we can help you navigate the available talent. We recommend this approach for management positions at base salaries over £70k.  


Headhunting delivered by an experienced recruiter will always help to push you to recruit the very best talent available. 


To do this you must engage the services of a sector specialist who can help you make a comprehensive assessment of the market.


The recruitment of talent involves a mixture of skill, experience, cultural fit, ambition and emotional intelligence. It often means looking for a needle in numerous haystacks spread across different parts of the country. Only a headhunter, with an extensive personal network and search logistics, will be able to help you in this kind of search.
