Clients praise our chief product officer executive search capabilities

Our vision is to continue building a secure, socially responsible, and sustainable organisation of international acclaim. To achieve this, we must deliver consistently high standards of customer service. By regularly gathering feedback from our clients, we’re able to pinpoint what excellent service looks like to them and use that information to inform ongoing consultant training initiatives.

This commitment to continuous improvement is a key reason why our annual Net Promoter Score (NPS) positions us amongst the best companies in the world and ahead of other executive search firms for customer satisfaction and loyalty.

Talent pool and employer brand solutions enhance our CPO recruitment efforts

All types of businesses are experiencing skills gaps due to a multitude of converging factors such as an aging workforce and a lack of interest among younger workers in some career areas. As well as delivering traditional search processes, we also offer talent pool solutions to clients seeking to overcome this challenge by building a database of highly skilled candidates to target for future roles.

We’re proud to play our part in building the workforce of the future. Promoting a client’s employer brand is a key aspect of this. Our internal marketing team provide several promotional services including producing candidate packs, career sites and social and email marketing campaigns, all aimed at telling our clients’ stories, as well as advertising exciting product leadership jobs.

International consumer industry executive search firm

One of our first-ever clients back in the late 1980s was Procter & Gamble. They became a springboard to launch our consumer industry executive search practice, which is now a prominent feature of our wider proposition. Today, we are widely regarded as Europe’s number one consumer industry search firm, with teams of over 60 consultants based across our EMEA and North America network of offices.
