OUR SOLUTIONS

 

Executive Search

Executive search is the core service provided by us, though there are several different models by which we can deliver the results our clients need.

 

Our record is not just filling positions, but placing people of exceptional talent, who achieve significant personal growth through high achievement over a prolonged period of time.

We only work with one client per sector, so have no off-limits clients. We strongly believe this is the most ethical approach in the executive search industry, and ensures we are committed to the long term success of our candidates & our clients. It is a unique relationship based on a set of values that are attuned to the clients’ best interests, with full access to every competitor in the market.

With the support of our proven methodologies and toolkits to support client engagement and sign off for assessment criteria, Connaught Search have reset and raised the standards for delivering successful executive search. We do not simply deliver candidates for interviews, we provide detailed selection and assessment, along with proven evaluation methods to evaluate the track record, personal fit and motivations to move to our client, as well as to the specific role.

Beyond the projects we undertake, we are brand ambassadors for your company.  Our management of the candidate to ensure the best candidate experience ensures that your employer brand is not only maintained, but where possible actively enhanced.

Our global track record of delivering for many of the world’s leading brands is based on the thoroughness of our approach, our open working practices, and the most structured and well managed assignments we believe are delivered anywhere. But don’t take our word for it, read what our clients have to say. We are confident to make bold claims in terms of our abilities, but even more so that our clients' testimonials provide the best proof of our abilities to deliver.

 

Embedded Search

The innovative service on which Connaught was founded continues to this day, delivering excellent value to clients.

An on-site search consultant is placed inside the client’s HR and recruitment teams to deliver executive search assignments where there is sufficient volume to warrant the deployment of a dedicated Connaught Search team. The auditable benefits we have delivered to multiple clients are:

  • Reduced Time To Hire

  • No off-limits lists by working with only one client per sector

  • Client confidentiality maintained through dual identity of embedded Connaught Search team

  • Greater understanding of corporate culture ensures better cultural fit of candidates

  • Significant cost reductions through volume of roles undertaken

  • Unparalleled levels of Service Delivery by on-site team

 

To meet a critical business need, often a project or major resourcing requirement, Connaught Search will swiftly mobilise consultants to work either on site or in our office or both to confirm needs with senior management, and develop a resourcing plan which includes a timetable, clear criteria, target markets, remuneration structure and attraction strategy, selection process and induction.

 

By working alongside you, the client, yet with full back up from Connaught Search Head Office, the embedded search team combines the best of in-house contractors and external head-hunters.

Executive RPO / Embedded Search

Connaught Search pioneered the outsourced Executive Search model

 

Communication and Cultural Fit
Our consultants are dedicated to your search and can work in your offices when required, which dramatically improves communication and cultural fit, when compared to working for multiple clients from remote, external locations.

Employment risk and flexibility

Because Connaught takes the employment risk for our consultants it means that our clients do not and that they are not carried as headcount. It also means that as requirements change you have the ability to scale up or down as required.

Planning and Integrity
Our consultants plan each search with a timeline that includes active research, which we share with the client on a weekly or fortnightly basis, so that assignments can be transparently tracked.

 

Quality On Time Delivery
Our consultants focus on delivery to an agreed timeline for the client, and our fee structure emphasises a successful recruit, not just a short list.

Reduced Cost
We pass on our cost savings to you, the client, with the savings increasing in line with higher volumes of work.

Experience
Our consultants have worked as leaders in industry, as well as being experienced search consultants, so they quickly understand the strategic issues facing Senior Executives, Recruitment and HR.

Confidence and Reliability
The best way to check how Connaught Search could deliver major benefits to your business, is by a short phone call, a discussion of your needs, and a review of our client testimonials.

Market Intelligence & Consulting

Market Understanding  
Before entering into executive search assignments, it is often worth evaluating the relative strength of a company’s Board or management teams, to better understand the culture and working practices of major competitors. Beyond simple Market Mapping, Market Intelligence is the gathering of key information, backed up by analysis of a market, often on a company by company basis, involving Trends Analysis and a SWOT Assessment.

Identifying the Top Talent
Crucially, Market Intelligence often allows Connaught Search to identify the top performing people in competitors ahead of Executive Search assignments, and track them over the short to medium term, so that the Talent Pools can be pro-actively developed strategically.

 

Developing Talent Pipelines & Employer Brand
Knowing the top performing people in your sector, in each competitor, and the trends in areas where key hires will regularly take place, provides a strategic hiring advantage in “The War For Talent”, and also allows for early discussions to be started to position your company with the best people in your industry.

 

Valuable feedback about your Employer Brand can also be captured, allowing this to be fine-tuned and developed in your “Go To Market” recruitment strategy.
