market and the talent located within it.
Methodology & Fees
We believe in using whichever methodologies are most appropriate to the assignment. This ensures the most
successful cost effective and expedient solution. We will typically recommend the use of one approach or a mix
as agreed. Our unique 4-Way Methodology™ encompasses Search, Selection, Portfolio Networking and Internet
to thoroughly search the “whole market” for talent and forms a highly effective sourcing solution.
A direct “headhunt” approach into a pre-selected, researched target market. Primarily useful where talent is likely
to be working in direct competitors and is secure, well rewarded and performing - the ultimate passive candidate.
It enables adoption of ”hire to hurt” strategies to gain competitive advantage and market insight. Targeted search
is highly effective.
Candidates sourced match your skill set and your corporate culture. We use our knowledge & experience to
identify companies employing suitable candidates. Then determine which candidates are established as being
"best in the field". We follow advanced in-house interview processes and manage the interview & offer process
to ensure successful on boarding of talent sourced.
Employing this methodology is ultimately more expedient, efficient and effective. We provide strict confidentiality,
an extensive network of contacts, objectivity in candidate evaluation, and negotiation experience and expertise.

Over 25% of assignments are filled by sharing between offices and consultants, something not achieved to this level
elsewhere in the staffing industry.
By pooling our resources in each locality we can initiate seamless cross border searches across a region to secure
the best talent for a role.
