Camden Search and Selection delivers bespoke search solutions for Director, C-suite, and General Management level appointments. Our search and selection methodology is flexible, tailored and our goal is to build and maintain trusted relationships with both clients and candidates.
Fundamental to our success is our emphasis on transparency and our desire to build long-lasting relationships with our clients. We work hard to fully understand the goals and values of your organisation and provide advice across all areas to build your talent strategy. Our expertise, networks and industry knowledge allow us to target suitable talent and our rigorous assessment process ensures that we can provide significant insight into a potential hire’s likely job performance, style and approach.
We invest significant time and resources to map candidate markets, allowing us to act proactively and efficiently when engaged on an assignment. We use multiple, best-practice channels, including our pre-qualified database of candidates, to access the best talent in the market, not just on the market.
Our consultants’ background in organisational psychology means that we are also able to leverage best practice thought leadership and research around contemporary leadership practice to provide you with Executives and Senior Management whose goals and motivations align with those of your organisation for a more long lasting and productive placement.
With top-tier relationships in place across the sectors that we operate in, we are able to connect you with professionals who are uniquely qualified and motivated to strengthen your organisation and to drive business outcomes. In an era of continuous organisational change and transformation, securing the best executive talent for critical roles and job families is of paramount importance to reach organisational goals.
Determined to break the rules of traditional search firms, our focus is on delivering a personalised, relationship-based approach to executive search.
Objective Talent Assessment
When hiring executive talent, organisations need to have total confidence in their candidate shortlist. Camden Search and Selection utilises gold standard assessment tools as part of our assessment process to enhance rigour, enable robust decision-making and to mitigate risk. We are also able to provide these tools for use outside of our search process.
The tools that we utilise allow heightened understanding of a candidate’s likely behaviour, emotional intelligence, job performance, situational judgement ability, motivation and leadership style, all benchmarked against local or international executive talent. These tailored assessment tools include psychometric assessment, simulation exercises and cognitive ability testing.
A clear differentiator from our competitors is that Camden Search and Selection consultants are formally accredited in these tools, allowing us to maximise ROI with their use and to advise on a bespoke battery of tools for a given role.
Camden Search and Selection works closely with individuals to help them develop their careers, providing honest, transparent, unbiased and constructive feedback and advice. We have successfully worked with professionals across the Not-for-Profit, Healthcare, Government sectors to assist them in their transition to a new role, frequently when they haven’t been active in the job market for an extended period. The provision of strong support during this process, both emotionally and professionally, is of critical importance and this is one of our clear differentiators from other providers in this space.
Our other clear point of difference is our close link to our Executive Search function. Being so acutely aware of what the recruitment market is looking for at a particular point means that we are uniquely positioned to help individuals in positioning themselves to be as marketable as possible to potential employers, in what is a truly tailored service – both to the individual and the opportunity.
We provide advice on all aspects of the transition process, from social media methodologies, particularly LinkedIn, through to resume preparation and interview technique.
