EXECUTIVE SEARCH

EXECUTIVE SEARCH

Executive search remains the most comprehensive and highest quality of recruitment solutions.

However, and although the fundamentals are the same Executive Search has changed. At least it has here at PartnerWise.

The change being the fusion of all the precision and thoroughness of traditional search with the greater reach and speed provided by technology.

The combination has morphed the historical solution with the talent requirements of the modern era, without any loss of the proven quality and robustness associated with the product and service.

Traditionally search was powered by research. The map of targets and prospects at country, territory, or global level. It was a thorough process of collecting active and passive prospects that took time – often weeks.

Today using automated technology and particularly AI driven methodologies that we possess here – it’s completed in a matter of a day!

With the foundation complete, and although technology has enabled a rapid conversion of approach to interest, verbal attraction to position the opportunity fully, qualify and overcome objections at the first touch point remains the most effective method with the highest scores of customer experience.

With the long list of interested candidates in place, the robustness of selection has always been a given. Add in all the advancement of assessment tools available today and the process is more thorough than ever before.

The combination of technology, assessment and human judgment providing the greatest level of certainty of performance in role.

Over and above the change in timescale to shortlist of tech driven executive search solutions its usefulness to a talent expert have also been extended. Although still the go to solution for senior level vacancies the now rapid process can be applied to a wider range of challenges. Challenges that are generally regarded as difficult to fill or business critical in nature and particularly if the role is private and confidential in nature often use executive search to create solutions.

Like with any quality product or service price architecture the costs and fees associated with executive search are relatively expensive in comparison. However due to the robustness, thoroughness, speed to shortlist and greater certainty of performance of candidate in role fees charged are far outweighed by the return on investment.

What has changed is how fees are charged. Today there is a greater divergence of payment structures than ever before. Most remain quite rigid. An approach that’s quite alien and the opposite of how we view things at PartnerWise and the personalised world we live in!

Executive Search will continue to evolve. Driven by technology, the changing business landscape and customer’s demands to hire competitively enhancing talent wherever it is located across the globe.

MAPPING FUTURE

TALENT PIPELINING

TALENT & SUCCESSION PIPELING

A strategic talent management service.

The multi-application service designed to support clients in their continual pursuit of enabling continuous growth through the only real differentiator

PEOPLE AND THEIR TALENTS. AS ITS TALENTED PEOPLE THAT CREATE AND DRIVE COMPETITIVE DIFFERENCE

The service delivers to clients a framework that can stand alone or integrate.

Raising the talent bar to enhance business competitiveness

Managing the business risk and impact of leavers

Demand for freshness, newness and greater diversity

Need for speed in finding new hires or replacing leavers

Traditionally top companies have developed various talent management models and processes. The most robust and thorough identifying potential talent nationally, territorially, and globally and through a process of uniform assessments, calibration and discussion ultimately plotting everyone within a talent grid or similar with axis’s comparing performance and potential. Others have gone further and included values and behaviours in the axis.

With the grid completed for C suite and each function and at agreed levels an internal pool of talent succession is established with the criteria ready now, ready in one year placed against everyone in the pool.

Although the internal model satisfies certain aspects for growth and protection, it is limited as it is insular. It solely relies on the capability of the talent that currently resides within the company. It also rarely delivers the new, fresh and diversity talent requirement that brings new thinking.

Until recently, external talent succession pipelining to provide bigger, wider, and deeper talent pools and options using a similar process to that expressed above were regarded as costly and a luxury. The combined internal and external talent frameworks being seen only in best-in-class companies.

However, the thinking is rapidly changing. Change driven by dynamic market conditions. Post Covid rebuilds and re organisations have resulted in a vast War for Talent. A War through which talent will determine winners and losers. Attracting and hiring such talent or conversely preventing such talent from walking out the door being key dynamics.

Merging internal and external talent mechanisms is what forward thinking companies are doing to position themselves to win.

External talent succession pipelines are built using the same comprehensive and robust assessment techniques and methodologies seen in executive search. The process completed on a private and confidential basis.

New AI driven 24/7 Sourcing Technologies providing the foundation to access new, fresh, exclusive game changing talent quickly.

Mirroring the internal mechanism for consistency each candidate is assessed, calibrated and plotted into a talent grid and placed in an external talent pool and titled ready now, ready in one year.

The results of such a collaborative, objective and strategic approach are numerous. The most significant being there will be a broader, wider, and diverse talent pool to select from. There is also a notable reduction in time to hire.

SPECIALIST PROVIDER FOR BRANDS & RETAIL

INTERIM SOLUTIONS

INTERIM SERVICE

We are a specialist UK, territory, and global provider of interim and contractor solutions at C suite and senior functional level for brands and retail.

Our Service Delivers

  • Quick access to interim and contingent (contractor) talent to fulfil your immediate requirements
  • A unique, portal based and fast IR35 role determination process with full indemnity given once completed
  • A payroll service for both interims (Inside IR35) and contingent workers (outside IR35)

 

Sourcing Interims and Contingent Contractors

Our AI driven resourcing capability and extraordinary connectivity and network within retail, brands and wider sectors and specific functions brings you rapid accessibility to the interim or contractor talents you require when you need them most.

Interim and contingent workforce resourcing is fast paced as there is often an immediate need or for a significant strategic project.

Our rapid, automated, and portal based solution and associated tools puts you in control and your business in an advantageous position. You can access, review, and select your interims or contractor from our portal at any time.

Experts in IR35.

We embraced the IR35 challenge through investing in a proprietary automated solution that through its robustness removes all the significant risks associated with getting a role determination wrong.

And through using our quick portal-based tool will you and your contingent worker have access to a unique indemnity underwritten by Zurich Insurance.

The tool fused with the indemnity is a game changer as it provides the entire contingent worker supply chain, yourselves, the contingent worker, their limited company and PartnerWise complete peace of mind in the IR35 minefield.

Who IR35 Affects?

The IR35 reform came into effect in the private sector in April 2021 and makes it the duty of medium and large firms to determine the IR35 status of their contractors. Those businesses shown not to demonstrate robust assessment processes will face liability from HMRC.

This applied to those businesses:
• With a contingent workforce of interims (contractors)
• Using interim (contractors) of British nationality based in or outside the UK
• Operating a UK subsidiary
• Paying directly to the interim or contractor

The Role Determination Assessment Tool & Indemnity Process

1. Our tool uses a series of assessment criteria input into a secure, online portal. The portal automatically and quickly determines whether the role is inside or outside IR35.

2. Once assessed we locate the required contractor quickly, set up their contract and administer the payroll (should you wish).

3. With the above in place, we are then able to fully indemnify the entire supply chain, your Brand, the Interim including their LTD company and Ourselves if we are the paymaster.

Signing Up

The solution applies automatically to those who instruct our Interim team to find an Interim or Contingent Worker (Contractor)

For all clients the service can be applied for all interims or contractors assigned directly and at the point their contract comes up for extension.

Start Removing Your Risk Today

As a next step and given its importance, let us help. Please give me a call/ complete the form to tell us:

• Are you a UK company or do you have a UK subsidiary?
• Approximately how many UK national interims or contingent workers are currently in your business globally?
• What Role Determination Tool do you use currently?
• Who is paying your UK national contractors?

With the above we will immediately be able to estimate your level of risk.

Whatever the outcome. Moving to our solution and tool means you are a phone call away from dramatically reducing your risk.

    IAN WILLIAMS

    Managing Partner & Founder

    Previously a Retail Director and one of the founders of PartnerWise, My commercial, leadership and executive career spans 31 years with a myriad of ups and downs, experiences and learnings. The last 19 years of which I have been truly fortunate to work with some of the most renowned global brands, retailers and people assisting them with challenging roles, territory expansion and strategic moves in the UK, Europe, the Gulf, US and Asia.

    Although I am a believer in work/life balance and encourage my team to live such a value, personally I am never far from thinking about how we can do things better. When I do get chance, my interests as a passionate Welshman are rugby (any code!), golf and over the last 3 years distance running where I have completed numerous road races for our chosen charity across the UK.

    KIRSTY DUFFY

    SENIOR Partner

    I am one of the founding members of PartnerWise and a stakeholder in the company. Following graduating in languages at the University of York and an early career in retail and commercial radio, I went straight into search. That was in 2011 and I can safely say my feet have rarely touched the ground since.

    I head up our fashion/lifestyle team and specialise at the senior end of all Commercial and Operations disciplines. Having been fortunate enough to build up vast knowledge of my space and travel frequently, I have global candidate connectivity and a broad client base all over the world.

    Outside of work my young son keeps me on my toes! I also love live music, baking and have recently taken up floristry.

    JENNY DODDS

    Partner

    10 years a retail recruiter and now a Partner and one of the founding members of PartnerWise. I am all about the relationship to such an extent I would say some of my candidates (who are also my clients), I like to think of as friends.

    Professionally I am known for my extensive work within the Global Travel Retail market and in HR where I have specialised placing candidates all over the world. Personally, I love travelling and to see and experience differing cultures. During time out, I have completed two world tours and I am particularly lucky that my passion dovetails with the role I do.

    John Chatwin

    PARTNER

    After graduating with a Sports Science Degree from the University of York St John. I entered the world of recruitment, and eighteen years later, I’m still here, and, of course, still running.

    My recruitment journey has seen me work with some leading global brands across the sports and fashion arena, food retailers, the hospitality and leisure sector as well as smaller, founder-run organisations where we’ve played a key role in the growth of the company.

    The early days of phone calls and face-to-face meetings taught me the importance of honesty and integrity. As a runner, I know that nothing replaces the training-hours and miles; there are no short-cuts. Relationships are an integral part of my business and many span the length of my career and I’ve been privileged to work with some amazing people across all levels and disciplines.
    Away from ‘the office’ my passion for running goes from strength to strength with an ambitious goal of competing for England in my age category keeping me focused on my training.

    ABIGAIL LUCAS

    Associate Partner

    I was recently called a ‘Veteran’ on social media! I suppose with over 15 years in the search and interim industry qualifies me for such an accolade?! Coincidentally, I love what I do and thoroughly get a buzz out of assisting my customers when they need me most and placing candidates into their perfect role.

    I specialise and place candidates at various levels across a broad range of areas, in differing forms and lengths of contracts, with marketing, digital/e-commerce, Technology and HR being particular sweet spots. Outside of work my two small boys keep me very busy. When I am not running round after them I love to bake and enjoy ‘date nights’!

    DAVID PICKLES

    My strong personal passion for the beauty and Luxury Goods sectors combined with an extensive Retail background dovetails perfectly into my area of focus and role at PartnerWise.

    My desire to invest time, truly learn about a brand, its DNA, its people, its challenges and through such understanding, connectivity and tenacity confidently match talent whilst bringing my own personality and style to the sector I am trusted within.

    Outside I am quite traditional – family, friends and my two dogs! At weekends, you will generally find me shopping bags in hand; all in the name of market research of course.

    Georgina mason

    Having had a real personal passion for the beauty industry which began as a teen, this led me to complete a degree in Media makeup where I went on to work with top global cosmetic brands, from customer facing roles to supporting brands at prestige events such as London Fashion Week. Through this journey I soon discovered a spark for managing retail sales and employee’s.
    Now with over a decade’s worth of global beauty industry knowledge, from their products and sales to their staff and consumers. I’m ready to invest my extremely transferable skills in recruitment, within that same sector.
    I believe a combination of my experience teamed with my natural flare and enthusiasm for the industry will enable me to have an excellent understanding of brands, allowing me to engage on a higher level with their people, with a desire to learn about their companies including the ethos, challenges, successes and goals to ensure I can provide a tailored service to find the best possible fit.

    LIBBY RAGAN

    ASSOCIATE PARTNER

    Having worked within the recruitment industry for almost 20 years now,  I have undertaken and supported on so many varied and interesting assignments on behalf of a wide variety of interesting and prestigious clients. I still enjoy every element of recruitment as much as I did when I first started out all those years ago and I take a real pride in my dedication to the brief, understanding the exact requirements and needs of both the client and the candidate in order to reach a successful hire.

    My expertise lies within Executive Research/Headhunting, appointing top level senior hires, mid-level hires, talent pipelining for future hiring needs and market intelligence/benchmarking analysis.

    I bring solid experience and knowledge to an assignment whilst always maintaining a very open mind and adopting an adaptable and often creative approach.

    Outside of my work I have 2 young boys and an energetic Goldendoodle who all manage to keep me very busy!

OUR APPROACH

OUR APPROACH

Our core commercial values are focused solely on delivering exceptional customer experiences be they our clients or candidates.

We like to start with a face-to-face client meeting and if possible, time spent within your business, meeting various leaders and those networked to the role, gaining an understanding of the company, the brand and particularly the culture. Often finding candidates with the correct brand, culture and network fit is the hardest part of all.

Therefore, in our view, having a recruiting partner that is not only a sector specialist but whose DNA shares the ethos of the brand and culture is more likely to present the opportunity to potential candidates in a way more akin to that of a colleague.

During this time together we will discuss all aspects of the role, the challenge and the profile required in detail. We will share relevant experience, discuss targets, solutions and personalise them specifically to your requirement. Once agreed, we will create a unique visual assignment presentation that will act as a key part of attraction following initial approach and top line qualification.

In our experience the more time we invest in gaining a clear understanding directly relates to the speed and quality of the result and the overall customer experience.

To continuously grow, evolve and differentiate we benchmark ourselves against the global search companies. We also constantly take, listen and act on feedback provided by our customers – both clients and candidates.

Considerable investment in proprietary AI solutions enable us on behalf of our customers to search 24/7 and much wider, deeper, and quicker than ever before. Search processes that use to take weeks now takes days and delivers the most diverse and often exclusive range of candidates to select from. Mixing a series of assessment, reference mechanisms and objective testing with portal access to such data and shortlisted profiles puts our clients in control to review and select.

Although we use every modern method of sourcing, connection, and assessment we have not forgotten the best of the past. Verbal approaching remains the best way of attracting very high calibre and ‘exclusive’ candidates to your shortlist. Game changes expect to be contacted and market statistics back it up. Only using the tried and tested techniques of approaching, will you achieve a 4 in 5 better chance of hiring a truly exceptional talent. As a by-product, you are also able to overcome any concerns at the first touch point.

All candidates are initially screened electronically, interviewed personally and ‘risk assessed’ and back referenced with balanced notes written and further investigation areas highlighted. Hogan personality and behavioural testing is also available should you wish to attain an even more in-depth assessment.

Unlike many of our competitors, we are also happy to share along the route full details of our research in a candidate map/ tracker format. The map/tracker is a part of the information shared on your portal. The map is the baseline for finding talent. However, it also provides insight around competitors, their structures, salary levels and perceptions of your employer brand and role in question.

Over and above the rigorous assessment conducted, a significant element of successful talent acquisition requires sensitivity and personal consideration. We see it as a balance of identifying, attracting, qualifying, and assessing whilst also taking the time to carefully manage the emotional journey of the candidate, and often their partner, when they are considering making a life-changing career decision.

Accepting a new role often involves personal change of circumstances. In all cases we are attracting a candidate who will be highly regarded by the company they currently work for. There also may be other family factors involved such as relocation and re-schooling within a country or overseas. Personal aspects that need careful navigation alongside the financial fundamentals of package, tax levels and associated standards of living comparatives that we also support our customers with.

Over and above fully supporting you in finding, attracting, and assessing the best talent. We pride ourselves on balancing all the hard and softer elements and interactions during the journey to deliver an exceptional customer experience and successful hire.

OUR DIFFERENCE

our DIFFERENCE

Our difference comes via a fusion of technology and our people.

The latter a diverse team of partners. Some with a blend of industry and global recruiting experience from within the specialist sectors they now recruit into. Others who have worked in-house in Talent Acquisition and Management.

Through our people and from customer insights we developed our vision and values for our brand that would challenge perceptions and do things ‘infinitely different’.

The cornerstone of the difference being that we would place the customer at the heart of everything we do.

Below is a top line summary of how we have brought our vision to life and why a number of our customers regard our brand and partner interactions as refreshingly different and in a number of instances extensions of their team.

Unlike many of our competitors all our partners have been purposely selected for brand fit with the sector, customers, company, market, and cultures they work within. Moreover, they are all specialists in function and sector with full global reach, candidate network and connectivity.

All our people view their role in finding, attracting, and selecting the right profile of candidate for a specific role or delivering an external pipeline as part of a talent management programme as an enabler and brand ambassador.

Therefore, the cultural fit of the recruiting partner with the brand, market, and the candidates they engage with is essential to ensuring an outstanding customer experience.

We also believe you cannot be great at everything! Therefore, our specialist approach is purposely narrow, 5 specialism and several functions, deep, in understanding, expertise, candidate network and connectivity and wide, global in reach and unusual for a boutique. The combination designed to locate and access talent quickly and provide you will a certainty that you will be introduced to and hire the very best.

Continuously evolving our levels of engagement and customer experience we have invested heavily in proprietary world class technology. AI driven systems and processes that now enable 24/7 sourcing, portal-based ease of access and a level of assessment automation that drives speed to and quality of candidates.

Unlike most others we have also layered in proactively built unique candidate databases. Diverse pools of game changing talents differentiated by skills, experience, language, and nationality.

Our family of customers range from global brands and retailers to disrupters and other high growth start-ups. However, we purposely don’t have many!

Our philosophy being that to build long lasting repetitive relationships you need to invest time. Time to really get to know you and your colleagues. Time to understand your internal networks, the how things work around here! The cultural dynamics, the thinking, the challenges, and the aspirations. And if there is an in-house team in place time to establish how we can collaborate at a level that delivers the very best.

From such an investment in time we personalise and deliver each solution to individual client’s needs. There is no one size fits all thinking here.

Customers feedback suggests there is no one reason why we achieve such a high percentage of repeat business. Therefore, we believe it’s the blend of what we provide. All we know is that we enjoy what we do, and we are delighted customers think so as well.
