Here’s how we find your next high-profile executive hire:

Prepare

We help you define your tech executive role and benchmark salaries, tailoring them to your company's unique needs. This ensures you attract candidates who are not only a cultural fit but also primed for the challenges and pace of your business.

Connect

We conduct a deep-dive meeting to understand the tech executive role, organisational context, and candidate qualifications. We then set regular follow-ups and create bespoke sourcing and selection strategies based on your specific needs.

Frame

Our technology headhunters use data-driven methods to identify potential candidates from a global network. We then share sample profiles of the types of passive candidates we would approach to ensure we’re on the same page.

Engage

We create tailor-made content for each candidate so they have a professional first impression of your company and a strong sense of your employer brand. We understand the importance of confidentiality. Outreach is always discreet.

Identify

We screen and select candidates through expert-led video calls or in-person meetings.

Deliver

We provide detailed summaries of each potential candidate to facilitate your selection. We then organise the interviews for you.

Guide

We collect and share post-interview feedback with you and the candidates.

Confirm

We negotiate and extend offers on your behalf. We can also assist candidates with relocation and provide post-placement care.
