IRS Executives Search

Here at IRS we understand how frustrating it is not being able to find the right person for your business… and the thousands and thousands of pounds in lost opportunity this represents. We also recognise that you may be feeling unsure about using a headhunting service or you may even be a little bruised from a past recruitment company experience.
That’s why this specialist division was formed; a headhunting service that is entirely designed around you and the type of candidate you want to recruit. By creating a purpose built recruitment solution this ensures our clients avoid the pitfalls inherent in other recruitment companies.

When you combine our proven process with our headhunting skills and commercial acumen, you can be rest assured that this means we will recruit the very best possible candidate for you.

Executive Search and Selection Process

  • We begin the headhunt process by mapping the market and identifying the skilled professionals within your competitors.
  • Search our internal database for prequalified candidates with the appropriate skill set and re-engage.
  • Search through online databases and media sites.
  • Engage with industry networks for professional referrals.
  • Approach selected candidates and arrange interviews to screen them for competence and experience.

We also take candidates through a rigorous interview process, basing selection on the following criteria:

  • Technical experience and competence including where relevant; core skill set, software competence, regional experience, leadership experience, academic background and key achievements
  • Family situation and mobility to relocate if necessary
  • Detailed run through of current salary package and salary expectations
  • Career aspirations
  • Motivations for leaving current employers
  • Motivations for engaging with the client
  • Availability for interviews, contractual notice period and start dates
  • Request references
