Executive Search

MPH Search Ltd are headhunters. We specialise in identifying and attracting exceptional leaders, who are not on the market actively searching for a new position. We are highly experienced in getting the right message to the right people, in a professional and influential manner, regarding your business, whilst selling your brand, your culture, and your plans; and protecting your reputation. Retaining us means we take away the legwork and stress of the search and select process, allowing you to concentrate on running your business.


Once thoroughly briefed, we will have an in-depth understanding of your business and it's selling points, your requirements and the impact you are expecting from your new hire. We will then proactively research the market and begin our search process. We will provide you with a shortlist of exceptional candidates we have met, interviewed and briefed thoroughly, and whom we believe to be a match for your requirements. We will then discuss with you, the merits of each with you thoroughly before you decide who you would like to meet. We will support you at every step of your recruitment process, providing in depth feedback and advice at each step.

When would you need to retain our services?

Retained search is a little more expensive than contingency recruitment; however the benefits outweigh the small cost increase. The client will pay a third of the proposed fee in advance to retain our services. The advantage to us is our client is using us exclusively. Therefore, we have firm commitment from our client, enabling us to comfortably conduct a thorough search for the best possible candidates. With contingent search, clients usually want to work with two or three agencies which means there is a race against the clock, making it difficult to conduct a thorough, high-quality search. During a contingent search, agencies tend to obtain as many CV's from their database in as short a time as possible, which greatly reduces the quality of service and quality of candidates you receive.
