Executive Search

Executive Search is the process you use when you reach out to target specific individuals as potential recruits for your organisation.

Search differs from other forms of recruitment in that you have no idea whether the individual knows your organisation or if they might consider making a career move. So you have to do your research, identify your targets and then make your approach.

Our Executive Search team trained with some of the biggest names in search, and we’ve taken the best bits to develop our service.

The Difference

Executive Search isn’t easy. You need to conduct original research covering as much ground as you can, and then to make approaches to individuals with limited insight into their interest in your position. That’s why some providers fall back on databases and job boards. It’s easier, but you are limiting your search to the low hanging fruit.

From our understanding of the client and the informative brief that we prepare to the individual approaches that we make and the regular reports that we send our clients, it’s our thoroughness and our time-served experience that allow us to deliver a strong shortlist on every assignment.

We pursue clear targets and use our imagination to find a few wild cards. Every week, you have a progress report, and we’ll talk about our findings from the market. By the time you receive the shortlist, you’ll feel as though you’ve been part of the research phase. Do it properly, do it well. No surprises. Just great Search.

Did you know that the industry standard for search is 40% of roles aren't filled?

I have met few, if any, businesses in the recruitment space that I would consider using, let alone recommending. Quarsh are the exception. If you are considering ‘head hunting’ or a senior level recruitment campaign these guys are the best.

Our Legacy

We believe in intelligent Executive Search. To us, this means that the people you bring in make a difference to your business. Two years on, 94% of our appointees have either been promoted or are still in role; they add new revenue streams, move your strategy forward, bring in new practices that change how you do things for the better. That's why we tend to work with companies who need support in defining what they need, and why we're valued as strategic partners who move your thinking forward.

Taking a brief and executing it is part of the picture, contributing to your business is what excites us. At Quarsh we have a true vision to be the best HR and staffing solutions provider available, which is why we won't just meet your needs, we'll exceed them.

Meet The Quarsh Team

At Quarsh, we're proud to be generalist headhunters, although we all have our own areas that we enjoy more than others. As generalists, each search is approached afresh, with you as our partner. We don't make assumptions or rely on our little black books. This means that you get the most current information about competitors in your sector, and we'll know where you can look to find transferable skills.
