A perfect match

Why our innovative platform works exceptionally well for consumer sectors

1. Unmatched scale

Through our tens of thousands of registered members and our in-house search teams, we have outstandingly global reach with members based in 90 different countries. Technology frees us from sector, geography and off-limits constraints.

2. Remarkable talent

Our members and executive search partners can recommend their own networks for invitation to the platform, or for specific consumer, retail and leisure roles. Post vetting, this results in an amazing candidate pool of highly talented individuals.

3. Self-propagating search

Our unique process allows seasoned candidates to self-select for roles, this ensures the highest affinity between roles and applicants. This process not only removes institutional bias but also delivers strong fit and very high commitment levels due to our unique candidate-determined approach. It adds a lot of magic to the logic.

1 x 2 x 3 = Exponentially effective search

Our platform's scale, calibre and candidate-led alchemy, creates a candidate pool that is large, global and multi-talented. This search method creates surprisingly diverse shortlists, with this diversity being a by-product of the search process, rather than having to try to force diversity for diversity's sake.
