Retained recruitment

Our retained service is the best way to guarantee you get the right person for your organisation.  

Dedicated resources to find the right candidate for your business

When you choose to retain us for your role you’re buying into the value of our outstanding expertise and far-reaching networks in the fire & security technology field. 

With our retained service, our consultants prioritise your vacancy to help you find the person best suited to the role. For us, cultural fit is consistently an important factor. We take the time to understand your company culture and team dynamics from top to bottom before we even speak to any potential candidates. 

Our consultants will invest a significant amount of time from the outset because our focus is on research. All our activities are driven with quality in mind. We’ll work with you to create a job specification that engages the candidates who we’re specifically targeting. Our relationship with you will be consultative and advisory throughout.

We’ll conduct a robust search across both active and passive candidates. Our sourcing, selection and engagement process is precise and thorough. If we don’t already have the right candidate, retaining us allows us to advertise and market the role publicly. This always means a better quality of candidate application and interest. And better results for you.
