Bespoke Headhunting

Bespoke Headhunting

Occasionally you have a very specific brief. You are keen to hire one particular candidate, but it’s not appropriate for you to approach them yourselves.

At Searchlight, we are very experienced at approaching candidates to find out their current mind set; whether they might be open to a move, and if so, what that new role would look like and the type of remuneration they would be looking for. All without mentioning your company name or specific role.

We can then work with you on next steps (if appropriate), managing the whole process from start to finish.
