Our Executive Search Process

Our executive search process is meticulously research-led, ensuring we identify and secure the most suitable high-impact leaders for your organisation's success.

Initial Consultation - Week 1

We engage in an in-depth discussion with our client to understand their specific requirements, organisational culture, and business objectives. A Job Survey is completed which gives us a superior in depth analysis of the characteristics of the candidate you are seeking. This helps us gain a thorough understanding of their executive talent needs

Position Specification - Week 1 - 2

Based on the client's requirements, we develop a detailed position specification that outlines the key responsibilities, qualifications, experience, and desired attributes for the executive role. This specification serves as a guideline for our search process of which shortlisted candidates will be measured against.

Research and Sourcing - Week 3

Our experienced team conducts extensive research and utilises our vast network and industry contacts to identify potential candidates and target businesses. We leverage various resources, including our proprietary database, industry publications, online platforms, and referrals, to source highly qualified individuals.

Candidate Evaluation - Week 4 - 5

We rigorously assess the identified candidates by reviewing their resumes, conducting in-depth interviews, and evaluating their skills, experience, and cultural fit. We assess not only their technical competencies but also their leadership abilities, communication skills, and passion for the Food and Beverage industry.

Candidate Presentation - Week 6

We present a shortlist of carefully selected candidates to our client, providing comprehensive profiles that highlight their qualifications, achievements, and potential fit within the organisation. A candidate video introduction, key competency questions and profile analysis are included. We also offer our expert assessment and recommendations to assist the client in making an informed decision.

Interview Facilitation - Week 6 - 7

We facilitate the interview process, coordinating schedules, and ensuring a smooth experience for both the client and the candidates. We provide guidance and support to both parties throughout the interview stages, collecting feedback and addressing any concerns.

Selection and Offer Negotiation - Week 8

After the client has conducted interviews and identified their preferred candidate, we assist in negotiating the job offer, including compensation, benefits, and other terms of employment. Our aim is to ensure a mutually beneficial agreement that satisfies both the client and the candidate.

Onboarding and Follow-up

Once the candidate accepts the offer, we support the onboarding process to ensure a seamless transition into their new role. We maintain regular communication with both the client and the candidate to address any post-placement concerns or assist with integration as needed.
Law Firm Testimonials - Law Firm Webflow Template


Our business is only as good as our reputation. Here is a selection of kind words shared by some of our trusted partners.

“It is an absolute pleasure to work with Scott. Open, honest, collaborative and communicative, Scott mixes utmost professionalism with humour and personality which makes the (often painful) process of finding top talent a pleasant experience.

Scott takes the time to fully understand the needs and personality of the organisation before recommending candidates, but still delivers within often very often tight timescales.

I look forward to working with Scott again, and have no hesitation in recommending him to support your executive search.”

emma bateman
operations director

“Anybody can throw CVs at a client, but very few can throw the right ones and the certainty that the skill set and cultural fit are aligned to the clients needs.

With Scott, you get someone who has the industry knowledge within Procurement & Supply Chain, he just gets it because he has done it.

Other recruitment organisations should take a good look at themselves and understand you don't need sales people to recruit, you need subject matter experts who know what their clients are seeking. Would I use Scott again? Absolutely!”

andy neilson
supply chain & procurement director

“Scott has been a breath of fresh air when it comes to dealings with executive recruitment consultants, he was from day 1, Informative, helpful, prompt & supportive.

Other 'bigger' companies promise you earth & tell you that you are their 'focus' but then deliver nothing or are nearly impossible to get hold.

Scott was always on the end of the phone & available at any time & realises the importance of communication.
Could not recommend him highly enough.

His success in this somewhat fickle industry is in no question & he deserves the recognition he receives”
