Search consultant opportunities

Are you looking to drive your own career pathway and destiny, unlock new opportunities and make a tangible difference to the success of both organisations and senior executives? If the answer is yes, we’re looking for ambitious, high-achieving search consultants to join our team and be part of the ongoing development and growth of NSCG talent acquisition and talent consulting.

The role of consultant

As organisations prepare for a future beyond the crisis, leadership and workforces will need to evolve, adapt and transform. Businesses need to equip themselves with strong, capable leaders who can survive and thrive in uncertain times.

Moreover, clients partner with us for the best leadership and talent solution in the market. As a search consultant you’ll be a trusted, strategic advisor to clients and influence at c-suite level.

Operating within a vertical market or within a functional specialism you will work on a wide range of search mandates for broad portfolio of clients, including SMEs, the FTSE250, private-equity backed companies in the UK and multinationals.

Specific responsibilities

  • Contributing to the ongoing development of the executive search practice, participating in business planning activities and the delivery of agreed plans
  • Attending client briefings, preparing candidate reports and client documentation for longlist and shortlist meetings
  • Ensuring client and candidate systems are up to date, recording all intelligence, candidate and client feedback collected through assignments on the database and other company systems
  • Building on existing relationships to develop future business opportunities.
  • Establishing new relationships within the sector to develop future business opportunities
  • Identifying opportunities for the creation of case histories and thought leadership articles to support the growth and development of the business
  • Supporting the wider business in broader leadership assignments as appropriate
  • Working with internal and external researchers to maintain a current knowledge of changes within, and affecting market sectors
  • Contributing to the wider executive search team, and business, with regard to developing our service offering

About you

We are looking for individuals who have the ambition to be best in their field, who have high levels of drive and show a genuine attitude for winning and developing business.

  • Organised and has the ability to prioritise to ensure client and candidate satisfaction is never compromised
  • Enjoys working as part of a team but is also able to work independently and take personal responsibility for assignments
  • Self-motivated and energetic, displaying a can do attitude

  • Will embrace technology and innovative ways of working with our clients
  • Wants to learn and develop as an individual
