About Us

Nevard Roland was established in 1996 by David Pottier and Steven Vass.

With both founding directors still operating at the heart of the business, the experience they bring to the table is such that they fully understand that what they do has a major impact on both the future prospects of the clients who retain them and the lives of the people they recruit.

“We believe we apply a pragmatic approach in what we do. Imagination, initiative, drive and communication are other hallmarks of the service we offer."

By treating clients and individuals equally concerning matters of discretion, integrity and care it is no coincidence that we secure repeat business. We also find that many past candidates use us when they have it in their power to engage Executive Search consultants.

"When delivering our service to clients we find the right people quickly, cost effectively and within the minimum of fuss."

Senior manager to board level appointments typically in the salary range £70k – £200K.

No, our business is founded upon relationships and our track record shows we are capable of backing this claim up with hard evidence. Perhaps more importantly we know what we can’t do and when to walk away. Our independence allows us to give practical, impartial advice on who to work with if it is not ourselves.

On the contrary, we believe it works for us. By recruiting cross functionally we are able to build a relationship over time. In so doing we are able to develop a better understanding of company values and culture than the intermittent involvement of, say, a specialist financial recruiter.

As a result of not focusing on just one industry sector, in a market where search is increasingly forming part of the quest for talent we have few (if any) off limits issues.

We deliver what we promise with an assignment completion rate that ranks with the best in our industry. We work at a commercial pace, agreeing to a timetable at the commencement of each project. Our process is thorough – we have an in-house research function rather than contracting out this sensitive function unlike most small and, indeed, some larger consultancies which do. We shortlist interview with the client if requested – consultant input is becoming highly valued with this approach. We play a critical “broking” role between offer and acceptance stage. We work on a retained basis but thereafter our fees are very much determined upon delivery rather than “time based”. We will often agree a fixed fee upon commencement of a project if we feel a higher salary than anticipated by the client is necessary to attract the right individual.

We ‘buy in’ to the people we place by offering a credible indemnity period – 6 months in the case of main board appointments. Protecting the relationship by putting client interest first sees us ‘second source’ candidates where the process breaks down and time is of the essence.
