When to Choose Executive Search

At Armstrong Craven, we understand the challenges of finding the right senior team to drive your business growth in a competitive landscape. Our Executive Search service offers a research-led solution to secure scarce and senior talent while providing flexibility and cost reduction.

Our Approach to Executive Search

We want to remove the mystique of traditional executive search and ensure you only pay for the steps you want and need.

We use a research-based methodology rather than relying on a database or ‘black book’. This gives you a complete view of the talent that matches your need along with their motivations and career plans. We develop a cohort of qualified and engaged candidates who are interested in joining your company.

Executive Search with Armstrong Craven is cost-effective, data immersive and has been proven successful for companies of all sizes and at stages of growth or transformation.

Our Deconstructed Executive Search Methodology

We work with you to identify which parts of the executive search process you’re comfortable handling and which parts you want us to look after. This way, you only pay for what you need, nothing else.

With the support of our Insight & Talent Analytics team, we take talent mapping to the next level. We meticulously map competitors and related organisations, ensuring a comprehensive view of the talent landscape.

This enables us to identify the most relevant individuals, providing you with the best starting point for engagement. Don't settle for limited insights and incomplete talent pools. Experience the difference of research-driven executive search and elevate your talent acquisition strategy.

Our engagement process goes beyond surface-level interactions. We aim to have meaningful career conversations with each target person, delving into their current responsibilities, progression prospects, and most importantly, their aspirations and ambitions. This in-depth understanding provides a valuable measure of the target talent pool.

When confidentiality allows, we openly share details of the role, inquire about people’s perceptions of our client, and explore factors such as location and remuneration. This level of engagement ensures a comprehensive evaluation of potential candidates and confirms their willingness to move forward.

This stage enriches the talent map with qualitative insights and helps narrow down the selection.

We understand that hiring decisions go beyond mere qualifications and skills. We go beyond traditional interviews and delve deep into career experiences, achievements, working styles, characteristics and developmental milestones. Through a thorough assessment and interview process, we carefully evaluate each candidate. This meticulous approach allows us to select the strongest individuals who align with your company's unique needs and goals.

The result? A final shortlist of candidates who not only have the capabilities to excel in the role but also possess the right cultural fit.

The final stage of the talent acquisition process is often underestimated.

We understand that communication and coordination are key during this crucial phase. Our team acts as a bridge, facilitating clear and timely communication between candidates and clients. We ensure that all parties are well-informed, addressing any concerns and providing support throughout the offer process.
