Permanent & Specialist Search
Cantillon has a very comprehensive sourcing strategy that encompasses selection from our extensive database, utilising our networks for referrals, proactive headhunting and a number of other tools. We endeavour to represent the 5% of candidates in the market place and ensure to validate their suitability through informal references.
Specialist market mapping, thoroughness and a proactive approach are the key areas of praise we receive from clients. The key to our success is the attraction and development of ‘passive’ candidates which are more often than not, the best candidates in the market who need to be made aware of opportunities and the clients behind them.
International & Retained Assignments
Cantillon has a global database built over 9 years across 10 locations in key financial markets. With over 30 years’ of international experience internally, Cantillon has proven itself on many successful relocation successes for our client portfolio, including successful case studies of retained assignments.
Retained assignments allow our clients to have one point of contact representing them in the market, this is not only time saving but also crucial for their PR when headhunting their direct competitors. Searches have detailed timelines and weekly itinerary allowing the client to know exactly where their search project is. More often than not the whole target market is mapped and presented before approaches are made meaning no stones are left un-turned for the client. Against all preconceptions, our search service is often better value than our contingent service, we know that we have the full attention from our clients and reward them accordingly.
Our clients who pay a percentage of the fee in advance are literally buying our consultant's time and taking them away from their desk to solely focus on their assignment. The benefits are first refusal of all candidates, a dedicated resourcer, comprehensive market mapping and controlled and positive PR within the market.
Contract & Interim Assignments
Our aim has always been to represent the market's highest calibre and skilled candidates who are immediately available to commence work at a moment's notice. All our candidates have been thoroughly pre-screened, interviewed and referenced.
Many of our clients have found Cantillon to respond immediately to 'short to medium term' Contract or Interim needs. Our professional approach, the depth of our understanding of our clients' needs and our speed of response, enables us to deliver at an unparalleled level of service.
