We’re in the market everyday talking to clients and interim managers, so when a change or transformation brief comes up, we often instinctively know two or three candidates who we think would be a good fit.
Rather than stopping there, our dedicated research team then runs an accelerated headhunting search for interims who have the right background and experience, as well as collaborating with our permanent search colleagues. Perfecting this integrated approach with search means that around 20% of our interim placements come from candidates that have been headhunted for other roles and simply wouldn’t be on the radar of other firms.
Our conversations with Private Equity houses often start with a problem within a portfolio company that either an interim or consultancy solution can resolve. Usually, the transformation required precedes a permanent hire, something our businesses can work hand in hand on.
We offer a comprehensive range of services to PE across the whole investment lifecycle. We can support you with high caliber individuals to help from the pre- investment stage, to assisting your teams during the transformation and value creation stage.
