Recruitment Approach

We work in niche disciplines where we understand the market dynamics of recruiting from experienced team members to senior executives. The recruitment approach that we suggest is based on the specific demands of any particular position, including the requirements for particular skills, the level of seniority, confidentiality required and the resources needed to undertake an assignment effectively.
Our approach can include:

  • Interim solutions – we can provide specialists in the short or longer term on an interim or contract basis.
  • Contingent – permanent recruitment with a fee on successful placement.
  • Exclusive search – retained on an exclusive basis with staged fees, where more dedicated resource is required.

Whichever method is employed, clients will benefit from our sophisticated international database and network of contacts built up over many years in our niche markets.  These highly effective resources are supplemented by dedicated research and mapping with wide use of the latest digital media, gaining referrals from trusted industry specialists, and networking at a wide range of industry events and conferences.

We can also offer personality profiling and aptitude testing for selected candidates if requested.

Barclay Simpson is committed to equality of opportunity and promotes diversity in the sourcing of candidates on behalf of our clients.  Please review our Equal Opportunities and Diversity Policy.
