Retaining talent is the second biggest challenge facing the public sector

Finding it is the first.

SmartSearch is a dynamic executive and senior resourcing service. We use insight, marketing expertise and a wealth of candidate data to identify the right candidates.
Use a more intelligent, proactive approach, reduce risk and find the best leaders for your organisation.

The problem is not a lack of talented people – it’s that they currently work for somebody else. Many of them may not be in the market for a new opportunity – until the right one is presented to them.

Smart Thinking from SmartSearch

Data is at the heart of everything we do

We know where your candidates are, what they are looking for in a new opportunity and what they want from an application process. We use targeted messages and innovative search methods. This allows us to significantly cut the costs normally associated with search.

Smartsearch can cut expensive display advertising and take away the need for headhunters.

We’ve put together a team that will ensure that your brief is fulfilled whilst reducing financial pressure and the prospect of failure. Smartsearch is tried and tested and has already helped to solve apparently intractable recruitment problems.

Attracting the right people can mean the difference between success and failure, particularly as organisations wrestle with complex change and increasing demands. Securing talent can help you succeed. Your challenge is to make sure they don’t want to work somewhere else.
