Executive search

Leveraging our in-depth research and networks within the built environment, we are able to uncover and attract the right, and often less obvious talent, that will bring value and innovation to your business.

Talent attraction

Our understanding of the built environment and related sectors, together with our close working relationships we have established with our clients has been key to our success. By taking time to jointly define a clear and thorough brief, and truly understand your business objectives, we deliver the results you are looking for.

Part of our brief can often include supporting our client’s needs for greater diversity and addressing the succession planning challenges of the business.

Our service model is sufficiently flexible to fulfil specific one-off search requirements, as well as the option of working with you on a longer-term partnering or retained basis through our click to Flexible Search Model.
