A unique combination of ingredients

Our retained search service is used by some of the world’s most renowned education and public services organisations as well as asset managers, investors and property advisors to find elusive and elite-level specialists.

We believe it’s our responsibility not only to help our clients hire the right people – but to ensure that process is objective, data-led and water- tight. This ethos underpins our retained search process, and it comprises four key facets.


Job descriptions are invaluable. But to ensure a search is joined up, you need a blueprint of the person you are looking for and, a process to bring this to life.

Our in-house MRG Weighted Matching Matrix System helps our clients turn a one-dimensional job or person specification into that blueprint.


In a fast-changing, challenging and crowded marketplace it’s vital that your employer brand stands out.

We’re proven experts in addressing this challenge head on. Our digital candidate packs are renowned, designed to reach a wide and diverse audience that we’ve developed over more than 15 years.


Successful recruitment is about making the right decisions, in context, at the right time – and implementing a process that ensures that happens.

Through unrivalled sector knowledge, our people offer context. Our tools, from the MRG Matrix to the latest testing technology from Thomas (we are official partners), offer further assurance in your decision-making process.


If the blueprint is properly identified and the process well managed, the final capture stage of an assignment should go smoothly. But we’re just as vigilant at this stage as any other.

We coach and influence the players involved to ensure a smooth on-boarding process, and use our market knowledge to ensure no stone is left unturned.
