SEARCH AND SELECTION
No two recruitment processes are the same; some require sector specific research, some advertised selection while others can be appointed through our existing network. Whichever approach we prescribe, we begin the same way; working hand in hand with our clients to understand what they want to achieve with each appointment. We challenge every assumption made in creating the brief and define a process to deliver results in realistic timeframes.
MBI & MBO RECRUITMENT
We work with UK Private Equity Firms and advisors to strengthen the management and boards of MBI and MBO opportunities. Usually we are asked to identify a Chairman, Non-Executive Director, CEO or CFO to join the MBI/MBO. We are trusted advisors to Mid Cap Private Equity Firms in the UK who involve us very early in the process and our fees are then included in the deal costs disbursed upon transaction.
TURNAROUND & INTERIM RECRUITMENT
About 30% of our assignments involve recruiting to improve the performance of a business. Not all investments go to plan and in the current economic climate many businesses fail to achieve their funding objectives or simply need to re-evaluate their strategy having fallen on tough times. We source expertise for turnaround scenarios to help investors rescue value from distressed assets. The most common appointments involve the recruitment of a new Chairman or an Interim Finance Director
Understanding what skill-sets will be required during the lifecycle of a business can be the difference between success and failure. We work with clients, particularly through their sell side advisors to help identify executive knowledge, skill-set gaps and put in place plans to identify resources before these gaps become critical issues.
