Executive Search – Director

Is this you?

A talented and successful recruiter, you feel you’ve earned your stripes and don’t need to be falling in line with relentless KPIs and targets. Giving away, perhaps,  75% of your fees every month is starting to wear thin and a hierarchical management structure is holding you back.

Is setting up your own business on your mind right now? Why wouldn’t you want to be your own boss, do things your way and build something for yourself and your future? However, if  you are a realist you will know that there is more to running a recruitment business than being a successful fee earner, especially when you are starting from scratch. The process of getting started is complex and time consuming, the risk involved is significant. On top of this you will want to exploit those client relationships which you have built up over time and be able to convince your contacts that you can still do an excellent  job and are not just a one man band.

This is us…

Nevard Roland Executive Search enters its 27th year in the autumn and seeks to grow by offering suitably qualified individuals the chance to earn a share in a business that has always punched above its weight relative to its size.

Working across the spectrum of business functions within a range of industry sectors we recruit senior manager through to executive board appointments, i.e. salaries £70k-£200k.

We want to hear from people who are proven practitioners in the field of executive recruitment and looking to develop their own business in the following sectors: City & Financial, TMT, FMCG, Manufactured goods, Healthcare, Cyber Security. Alternatively, you may be a functional specialist working on General Management, Sales & Marketing, Finance, HR, Operations, or IT appointments.

With over 50 years’ experience in Executive Search between us the founding directors can offer not only the mentoring and expertise to back up what you already know but provide you with advice on financial management including debt factoring, marketing and legal matters alongside a suite of back office systems and access to the latest in video interviewing technology.

What will you bring?

Proven experience recruiting business professionals from senior manager to board level.
A network of contacts / candidates that will allow you to achieve your business goals.
A desire to conduct recruitment in the most professional manner built on relationships not just transactions.

You are successful in your career because of what you do not just because of who you work for.

What is our offer?

Let us make it clear from the outset – this is NOT a salaried appointment, but neither is it a franchise opportunity – there is no upfront payment required for the right to work under our brand. We will be picky about who we want to work with – you must share our values with honesty and integrity being top of the list.

The income model for you is a simple calculation: If you bill £150K per annum [any less than that currently and you probably are not yet ready to make the step to do your own thing] you will keep £122.5K, i.e. we retain 15%. Enjoy it or reinvest part to further grow your business with our help and guidance.
