Executive Search

About executive search

Porterallen has a dedicated executive recruitment division and has been successfully placing senior professionals into financial services positions for a number of years.

We follow a comprehensive five-stage process in our approach to executive recruitment including:

  •  Defining the assignment
  •  Research
  •  Candidate Assessment
  •  Interviewing
  •  Selection and placement

We utilise the resources of our research team and review candidates sourced from our database, social media channels, professional networks and client/candidate referrals.

For very senior or very specialised roles, as well as roles requiring a high degree of confidentiality we recommend utilising market mapping and traditional search techniques as an additional stage in this process.

Our executive assignments are conducted on a retained basis, which ensures you receive the highest level of commitment from a dedicated Executive Recruitment Manager.
