Putting out a clear message

We will develop a powerful marketing proposition for your organisation and vacancy. This will send out a clear and consistent message about your organisation and available position to everyone we approach. In this way we ensure only credible candidates apply.

97% success rate

Recent auditing of our results shows that over the last three years, 97% of all appointments we have been retained to search for have resulted in a successful appointment. This is testament to the insight and expertise of the Hays Executive team in this top level recruitment market.


We are able to offer a modular service – including the following:

  • Search only
  • Assessment and selection
  • Database access

This is in addition to a wide variety of pricing and alternative service offerings, which can be customised to your exact requirements.

Post-appointment coaching

This enables you to more effectively embed senior appointees who have transferred from different working environments. They can then more rapidly contribute to the success of your organisation.

Market analysis and competitor information

  • Salary surveys
  • Competitor analysis
  • Organisational reports

Appointment evaluation, culture and competency mapping

The process begins with a full evaluation of the role to be recruited for and its context within the existing culture of the organisation. In particular we will look at what major changes the individual would be charged with bringing about. If required, we can also undertake an evaluation of the senior management and board to assess overall strengths and weaknesses. Once this is completed, Hays Executive will then develop a compelling message for your organisation, ensuring a good ‘fit’ with target candidates we approach.

In-depth research and transparent reporting

The Hays Executive team will systematically research your competitors and other relevant organisations. We will then come back to you with a detailed report on levels of interest in, and market perception of, your organisation. Our in- house research capability enables us to control and amend the direction of the search at any time.

Discreet, targeted approaches

All our approach calls are thoroughly researched and discreetly made. We understand the key appeal a role might hold for each candidate we target. This ensures a high conversion rate from contact to application on every assignment.

Complete market access

Our executive search service allows you to target the widest candidate pool for your vacancy – not simply those responding to an advert or actively job seeking. The most talented candidates usually look at long-term opportunities rather than just their next career move, so this access is invaluable.

Proactive generation of diverse candidates

We will specifically target underrepresented groups for your vacancies. Indeed, we have an outstanding track record of successful, diverse appointments. In this way we ensure that you always consider the best candidates for your appointment, wherever they are currently working.

Dedicated experts with extensive networks

Every consultant at Hays Executive has notable experience. Many have worked in their sectors for over ten years,building unrivalled networks of credible candidates whom they can target for your vacancy.
