Executive Search

Our trusted reputation in scientific and engineering sectors gives you access to a network of highly rated senior executives. We work closely with you to find the right people with the ideal set of skills and experience to take on leadership roles within your organisation.

Our executive search begins with close co-operation with you to understand the exact needs of the senior role. We then activate our own network and extend the search further to assess candidate suitability and discreetly make enquiries on your behalf. The initial search is always based on in-depth research and reporting back to you, with our experienced consultants offering information on salary benchmarking and recommended headhunting targets.

Hire senior execs based on real knowledge and expertise
We have worked with Cranleigh for many years now and have built up a very good relationship with them. Having been on both sides of the fence so to speak I have always found them to be friendly and helpful and they manage to put both the candidate and the client first, which is probably why we have found using them so successful in matching us up with the right people.
