Let’s talk people
We don’t see people in numbers, figures and sales-targets. Unlike the typical ‘hard-sell’ recruitment consultancy, we embrace a holistic, consultative and long-term approach to human resourcing. By truly listening to our clients and candidates, we focus on what makes people tick. To us, it’s obvious: passionate, fulfilled people result in stronger teams and more efficient organisations.
How we work with clients
We work collaboratively with our clients to understand their resourcing requirements. Going above and beyond the classic role of a recruiter, our experienced team can refine job specifications and offer departmental structuring advice – tailoring our service to suit your needs. We then deliver exceptional candidates from a trusted pool of connections: those people with the right skills, attitude and experience to make a real difference.
How we work with candidates
We know it’s never ‘just a job’ – especially when you’ve reached middle management or executive level. That’s why we take career progression seriously, helping you map out your next move the old-fashioned way: through talking. Life-affirming, life-enhancing roles aren’t found through search engines, which is why you won’t find a search function on our site.
We’re trusted partners to a number of large global commercial organisations, as well as central government and the NHS. Our team has over 40 years’ combined experience.
All our candidates are thoroughly vetted and found through network-based recommendations. We’ll never submit inappropriate CVs for a short-term sale.
An ethical approach
Insight was set up by three experts who wanted to recruit differently – placing honesty, integrity and collaboration at the heart of everything we do.
Insight in action
We understand the power of a ‘good word’ and a solid recommendation – it’s everything in our industry.
What is different about our approach to recruitment?
Honesty & integrity, not all recruiters have that!
Which areas do you feel we performed well in and in which areas do you feel there could be improvement? This may be from any part of the process.[Insight] keep me well appraised of opportunities that suit me, you don’t just try and make opportunities that are relevant fit me. Due to circumstances, I’m sorry to be working for another agency right now, can’t wait to work for you again. Cathy Darcey
I’ve worked with Richard Collins of Insight Executive Group in my last three roles as CPO over six years. Richard has a genuine consultative approach: choosing to seek a deep understanding of our business objectives and how the right candidate will help us achieve them. This is different from most recruiters who focus too heavily on basic key selection criteria.
In addition to recruitment services, we’ve engaged Insight with strategic business decisions too. If you’re looking for a value-added service, I’d wholeheartedly recommend Richard and the Insight group.Richard Hawtin
