Executive Search

Executive Search | David Thew and Company

We are specialists in expert, intelligence-led executive search and selection, with market knowledge and contacts which enable us to outperform headhunters and global executive search firms. Our network is extensive, multi-disciplinary and global, proactively maintained and updated through industry and professional bodies, social media, communities of practice and referalls.

Targeted, research-driven executive search is often the most effective means of identifying the best available talent, agreeing target company and candidate lists with the client at the outset. We often work ‘below the radar’ with minimum publicity to preserve confidentiality for commercially sensitive roles. It can also be the most effective methodology for more complex roles where the skill requirement is not ‘standard’.

Executive search also generates valuable intelligence for the client direct from the marketplace, including feedback on salary and benefits, market perceptions of the company and preconceptions of competitor staff.

We treat each executive search assignment as an entirely new brief and our fees are therefore agreed with the client on a project-by-project basis, with flexibility on rates and payment periods.

We believe in operating as an extension of the client and as ambassadors for the role and the organisation.
