Why use FOR to recruit?

FOR provides a contingency recruitment agency to undertake executive search assignments for banking, insurance, asset management and wealth management houses, filling positions that require candidates who can offer real impact, and can hit the ground running.

Recruitment Methodology

Being a true search practice we work on behalf of our clients and not candidates. We are a contingency agency that has adopted head hunter methodologies to better identify the right applicants. Whilst unlike tradition head-hunters we don’t ask for any form of up front payment. We always start with a clean sheet of paper, treating each vacancy as new search and proactively searching for the right individual for your organisation. This offers our clients real value for their investment.

We operate a structured, transparent search process which allows you more control over the direction of the search campaign. And whilst we embrace the latest networking technology, we whole hearted believe that judgement, expertise and human relationship building can never be replaced. Only a dedicated team, trained in professional social interaction, psychology and able to use empathic intelligence can deliver the calibre of applicants you require.

The search team will first gain an understanding of your business, its marketplace and the make up of your specialism. From this understanding we will assemble a target list of candidates, each of whom will be professionally chosen for your role. Normally the most talented individuals are fully employed and not looking for a new job, but with our experience in making the most appropriate contact, we can locate for you the real superior talent. We conduct competency based interviews with all candidates based upon the key criteria you have provided.

By offering a true search service, packaged as a contingency offering; this approach tends to led to a better cultural fit and candidate commitment. At FOR we do not finish working a vacancy until you have the best applicant.
