Executive Search

The demand for top talent has never been greater, even in today's challenging economic climate. Organisations, in whatever sector or location, require experienced and credible leaders, as well as talent with highly specialized skill sets, with the vision and skills to take them forwards. It is vital to attract top performers from the competition to formulate and implement winning strategies, using highly specialized niche skills, as well as having the vital ability to lead and drive others to great success.
Success for head-hunters depends on their level of market knowledge, network of contacts and ability to target and assess suitable candidates. As we have operated in our chosen markets for many years we have built the necessary skills, client and candidate contacts and reputation to be successful. During the last 4 years we have kept a 100% retained exclusive assignment success rate in appointing the right person on our campaigns, this we will strive to keep, working hard with you the client to ensure we plan in great detail to ensure successful delivery.

Identifying the right candidate is only one part of the process. Another key part is managing the process through to a successful conclusion. Each campaign is bespoke and designed to deliver a shortlist of candidates who are appropriate, relevant and where possible diverse.

We follow a stringent and well honed process, starting with discussing your requirement, how the process will be managed and spending time understanding your organisations culture and business strategy. Working closely with all the people involved in the hiring process we will produce a detailed brief outlining the specification, methodology and timescales, ensuring this has complete agreement before proceeding. For each mandate we combine new research and our extensive and existing market knowledge to create a 'long-list' of potential individuals, the best of which we look to present to the client. Following in-depth interviews a report is compiled with biographies, feedback on each individual, compensation packages and market references. Often relaying high level feedback on our clients business, individuals and the particular position available.

Following a successful client interview process, which we manage very closely, an offer is formalised. This is a crucial stage, as such we remain close to both parties and broker the offer, negotiating on behalf of our client to reach an acceptable outcome. We continue to manage the process, remaining close to the candidate through the resignation process and on still to the induction phase in the new position.

Our Clients


ConsultRPM have filled at least 10 compensation and reward vacancies in our team over the last few years, at all levels. They are my supplier of choice and I heartily recommend their service, they communicate extremely well and source quality candidates for my roles. In short they always seem to realise what I need and find the person quickly and effectively with the minimum of interviews required for each placement - what more could I ask.

Head of Reward, Financial Services

ConsultRPM's Search & Selection team have filled our ***** Director position successfully. They provided the shortlist before the deadline, all of whom were excellent applicants and from which we have attracted an excellent win from *****. We are very pleased with the results and I will recommend ConsultRPM in the future to my contacts.

Managing Director, Investment Bank

I have used ConsultRPM twice now in two months, the firm having been recommended by a contact who had used them for several years he told me. The first role, having a highly specialised skill set had eluded our normal suppliers. Within three days we had a great candidate at interview and hired them the next day, they have worked out excellently and we have another person waiting to start now in an Operations Manager position. I will definitely be asking them to source other staff and am happy to speak with others to confirm their knowledge and ability to provide the right people to date.

Pensions sector

ConsultRPM has provided reliable and consistent applicants for our project team vacancies over the last 4 years, now becoming our exclusive supplier and "go to" agency for all roles. Their guarantee, which appears to be backed up in practice gives me peace of mind that if there was ever a problem they would make sure they fix it. Not to mention the fact they really help us to choose the best fit and have advised me to hire or not to hire based on thorough understanding of the candidates they represent. If I want to move roles in the future I would ask them for their help first, as everyone we have hired has been complimentary about the service given.

HR Consulting

ConsultRPM have given a great service to my recruitment needs, we have doubled the size of our specialist sales team in 18 months. At least 60% of those staff were from ConsultRPM who have provided the strongest performing new members from our competitors to date. I would have no problem in recommending them as understanding what we need and getting it right first time, an unusual quality!
