    Single Hire, Search & Team Build

    Matching ambitious businesses with specialist talent

    As a true recruitment partner to finance, transformation and change, and IT
    departments, our single-hire, search, and team-build methodologies grant our clients
    access to specialist talent.

    We’ve spent years building a trusted community of professionals who have various
    industry backgrounds, covering both interim and permanent markets.

    With a network of successful individuals that we can reach out to for relevant assignments at short notice, combined with expert search strategies, we’re able to find our partners engaged, skilled individuals who will deliver against their business
    objectives.

    Why Absolute?

    Increase employee retention, save time & money

    84% of our
    introductions stay with the business for 2+ years in their new roles.

    Shorten the hiring process & reduce wasted time

    Our streamlined search takes an average of 12 working days from “brief” to “candidate acceptance”.

    Up to 12-month placement guarantee

    We will replace any hire that leaves within their first 12 months at no extra cost (bar redundancy).

    We’re immensely proud of the depth of detail we go into with our search process. A tried and tested methodology, Absolute Search will find, engage and prepare the right people for your business – whether for a single niche hire or multiple heads.

    Our experienced team have been specialising in their respective fields for between 6 and 35 years, yes that’s right, 35 years. We have a team that specialises in their field while also being experts in truly understanding the wants, challenges, and needs of their clients and matching the experience and drivers of the desired candidates.

    Understanding the nuances of each party ensures we’re able to represent your brand effectively in the market and genuinely find the right calibre of person with the specified skillset for the role.

    Depending on a client’s requirements, we build a bespoke project comprising of the following stages.

    Working together, we’ll assess your business needs and hiring plans. Through in-depth commercial and strategic conversations, we ensure we fully understand both your immediate and future needs before approaching the market.


    Once we’ve got a detailed brief, we’ll start the talent mapping process, building our search to target the right people with both the hard and soft skills you require.

    Our consultants will begin gathering data and insight to inform the search, including competitor structures and remuneration packages, M&A activity, brand recognition feedback, and talent benchmarking. This ensures we build the right pool, to which we will actively promote your role(s).

    Armed with a thorough understanding of your brand, your personnel requirements, and the competition, we’ll begin marketing the role.

    Using a combination of headhunting techniques and our technology stack, we’ll leverage our online and social network, alongside our existing network and offline community, to build an initial shortlist.

    We interview every candidate we long list before deciding whether they should be presented to our client’s shortlist. We’ll have an informal, thorough conversation with our candidates to determine important factors, including key motivators and ambitions, their experience and expertise, technical capability and emotional maturity, management style, general attitude and demeanour, communication style, and long-term career goals. From here, we’ll identify key
    individuals that we believe should be recommended to the client for an interview.

    Our service extends beyond finding the right candidate. Depending on the client’s needs, we can support with offer management, interviewing and feedback, placement setup and management, and scheduling post-placement check-ins. Whilst we have little control over onboarding, we offer advice on industry standards and how to improve your
    employee experience, improving retention.
