Executive Selection


An unfilled executive position represents huge opportunity costs for the organisation, and a tremendous burden on other executives who must cover for the role. Traditional retainer-based executive-recruitment arrangements lack the sense of urgency that is needed for today’s pace of business. 

To meet this challenge, Egerton Stephens Partners offers a unique approach to Headhunting working closely with you to develop an accurate and compelling brief for each executive role you seek to fill. Working with you will be a director-level executive recruiter or Specialist Consultant who interviews the candidates and creates your short list. (Your executive recruitment assignment is never delegated or outsourced.) 

Our unique blend of technology and hands-on service allows us to meet complex and out-of-the-ordinary briefs. In fact, it’s our specialty. Your short list will have candidates uniquely suited to your need, not simply the most obvious candidates. 

There will be no surprises when you interview your candidates. Each candidate will have already passed a rigorous vetting process. Every candidate will have been screened and interviewed. Their references will have been checked, and CVs validated.

Executive Search & Select

Egerton Stephens Partners Executive Selection in partnership with organisations of all sizes and sectors offers a range of client based services.

When recruiting at a senior level, qualifications and experience are of course vital, but personality, charisma, flair and vision are even more so.

Finding the right senior person for your company requires a recruitment consultancy that will be sensitive to your needs and can empathise with your business philosophy; one that has intellectual rigour, and one that is prepared to invest the time and resources necessary to deliver the best solution for you. It calls for recruiters who know your sector inside out and who have unparalleled contacts with the elite pool of prospects capable of handling such critical roles in your organisation.

At Egerton Stephens Partners Executive Selection we work across a broad range of industries within the private and public sector to deliver our services throughout the UK and Europe.

Executive Search is a proactive approach that uses our marketing intelligence, and national network of high calibre professionals to identify the best candidates in an industry. From agreeing an Assignment Specification and a target list of companies, to the day a successful candidate commences employment, all our activities are carried out in total confidence for both the client and candidates.

Candidates undergo a thorough face to face interview aimed at establishing if they are suited to the role in question, the organisational culture and have the requisite attitude.

Candidate shortlists are provided and are accompanied by interview notes and behaviour profiling reports if required. This ensures our clients have maximum understanding of each candidate from their very first contact. Egerton Stephens Partners Executive Selection has the capacity to manage the entire recruitment process, from organising client interviews and assessment centres, through to negotiating job offers and a start date.

outplacement services

Business restructuring, whether due to mergers, takeovers or downsizing, can lead to redundancies. This can be a difficult time. However businesses can greatly reduce the impact on their workforce if they handle these issues sensitively and provide practical assistance. We can help. Our outplacement services range from rewriting CVs to boosting interview skills and techniques. This can be particularly useful for people who have worked for the same company for a long time and whose knowledge of the job market is therefore limited. 

We may be able to place some of the executives made redundant through our own extensive opportunities as well as put them in touch with other high quality recruitment consultancies of proven effectiveness.
