Executive Recruitment Search



Highly experienced senior executives 

One of the many advantages of using Corporate Counsel is that you get a highly experienced and senior executive working in your business in days, rather than waiting months for a permanent candidate. They could be finance, sales and marketing or HR director. Often clients are expanding and are not quite ready for the leap to a full-time member of their team.


The benefits of taking on a Senior Executive for a short term?

Whether you need to increase sales, implement a new system, or drive the expansion of the company with a transformational plan we can source talented executives with the skills and experience to ‘hit the ground running’ and make a real difference to your organisation.

We can often find someone to start with you in a few days or weeks so you can get moving quickly.

Once they are working for you they can then help with:

  • Finding a permanent candidate for the role
  • Preparing the job description and sitting in on the interviews
  • Supporting you with the final selection and helping with the initial handover period n interviews to help with recruiting a permanent candidate

If you need senior support FAST give us a call today!





Our Executive Recruitment Process

As part of our approach, we encourage and train clients to take on the functions permanently when we have completed the project. This is typically how we will work.



Executive team or individual


Step 1

The Corporate Counsel team or individual is appointed to handle the immediate need and provide real benefits to the business and relieve the owner of a pressing challenge 




 Appointment to recruit permanent executive


Step 2

Once we have established that the business has the necessary support, we work with the owner to agree a timetable for the appointment of a permanent executive in a key role.

Step 3

We then work with our network of contacts and recruitment professionals to create a short list of top-flight candidates.



Interview executive recruitment


Step 4

We arrange interviews and support the business owner with the selection process. Because we have been working with the owner for a period in their business, we understand their exact needs and will find the candidate with the best fit for the company.




 Executive support period


Step 5

Once the permanent candidate is on board we spend a short period helping with a handover and then we move on to our next project leaving the owner with a strong candidate and a seamless period of support for the business.
