Executive Search

Our Executive Search service supports businesses who need to hire the best senior executives available “In the Market”. We are about finding the best person for a critical role- not delivering mediocre “On the Market” solutions or just simply a bottom on a seat. Using Moorlands means you get a result that you could not get elsewhere.

If you’re still reading then congratulations - you want to hire the best. Now imagine a key executive in your business has just resigned or is underperforming and despite development they aren’t improving. The reality is you need to replace them quickly and efficiently with somebody who is going to take your business to the next level.

How will you do this?

Your HR department will probably suggest one of three things.

  • Run an advert to find an external hire
  • Speak to recruitment agencies to see who they have on their books
  • Suggest you promote an internal candidate.

Assuming you haven’t got an internal candidate who can step up (if you have, APPOINT them now and stop reading) then there is a flaw with this approach. The flaw is that this approach will get you an “On the Market” solution. An On the Market solution is a candidate who is actively seeking a new role via job adverts or via a recruitment consultancy.

The PROBLEM is that you don’t want the best “On the Market” solution YOU WANT THE BEST PERSON “In the Market.” The reality is that the best person for the job may not be looking for a new job at all. But that does not mean they can’t be found, enthused, stimulated into action and be working for you in a short time.

You want the executive who is excelling at a competitor firm – or maybe in a wholly different industry - who can take your business to the next level. This is what we call an “In the Market” solution. At any given time 20% of your workforce is excelling in their role. Imagine what would happen in your business if you could attract executives who are in the top 20% of performers in your competitors? Or who have transformed other business endeavours? Executives who catalyse and drive success.

This is where we come in. Our Executive Search solution concentrates on identifying and attracting your competitors top performers. We concentrate on identifying individuals who will make a big impact in your business.Our specialist consultants work with you to identify what your key needs are, what good would look like and then conduct fresh research to produce critical intelligence on your competitors to identify the right executive for your business.
