Executive Search and Selection

Interconsult's executive search and selection process is not that of a regular recruitment agency. We select and recruit from requirement, not from a database. Our International offices give us the ability to head-hunt Worldwide, so when the pool of talent is small and spread across different countries, we can reach where others cannot. 

Confidential and thorough, our research to locate and approach potential employees for senior and specialist roles will help to create a short list of pre-qualified candidates of the very highest calibre.

Job specification and analysis of the job requirement

The job specification needs to be appropriate to the gap in the organisation and written to attract the very best candidates. Interconsult help to write the job specification and work with our clients to view the position from the candidates perspective as well as their own

Candidate selection

We search the talent pool, however small and however far spread, to find you the right candidates

Interviewing, Contract negotiation and reference checks

We work with our clients to determine what help and assistance is required from us throughout the interview and negotiation process

Confirmation appointment letter with position specification

We are with you from writing the job specification through to agreeing the terms and conditions


Business Coaching and Mentoring

Interconsult's team of business coaches and mentors don't just teach; they have all run successful businesses and faced up to all the challenges that business management brings. Highly qualified in business disciplines, they work with you to agree and fulfil strategies and goals for both you and your business.
