Insight Executive Group

Taking Recruitment Personally

Since our foundation in 2015, Insight Executive Group has been reshaping the face of recruitment, executive search and selection, and interim management.

We distinguish ourselves by our family values, and an approach grounded in the cultivation of genuine relationships.

Insight is committed to providing the best people for the job, and the best role for the individual. We specialise in recruiting middle management and executive level positions across the following key niches:

Property and Asset Management

Procurement

Critical Facilities & Engineering

Facilities Management

Commercial and Contract Management

Programme and Project Management

Providing both permanent and interim candidates, we’re renowned for our sensitive yet highly effective head-hunting methods. Our experienced consultants also offer strategic help for organisations looking to plan new roles, refine current roles and structure departments.

“Insight Executive make it personal.”

Our story

Insight started as nothing more than a dream shared by founders Richard Collins, Nick White, and Gerry Kassab. All three were driven by the frustrations of the clients they worked so closely with, who were tired of transactional recruitment, hard selling techniques, short-term profit strategies, and high consultant turnover.

Convinced there was a better way, the trio founded IEG, determined to offer a service radically different from the existing standard that characterised mass corporate recruitment. Initially utilising our position within the Green & Kassab group, and working with the integrity of an established and respected management consultancy, we quickly established ourselves as an independent and thoroughly unique executive search provider and market leader.

Fast-forward a couple of years and Insight has flourished. The dream of a more collaborative, client-focused, and diverse approach to recruitment has become a global reality. Our extensive and highly satisfied client base is a testament to the effectiveness of IEG’s unique blend of ethical, service-based recruitment, and management consultancy practices. We’ve worked hard to develop our own signature way of working; our ‘Trust-Centric’ recruitment style relies on the Relationships Method of discovering candidates via Referrals, References and Networking.

What’s in a name?

The Insight name means more to us than a line on a business card. Right from the start, our intention was to create a new way of recruiting, rooted in deep and intelligent meaning. We chose our brand name with care, ensuring it represented our core goals and values…

Insight

To take a holistic view of an organisation’s inner workings, providing a clear perspective on its needs, and the changes required to help the company thrive. ___

Executive

The power to execute change, positively influence, and achieve great results on all levels of recruitment through our unique relationship-centred approach.

Group

Striving for excellence through a consultative ethos and commitment to forming a collaborative group of experts, creating transformational, sustainable results.

Meet The Team

At Insight, we’re ‘people’ people.

We put our recruitment skills to the test in our own business and have been steadily building a core team of talented experts. Their main specialities include Corporate Real Estate Services, FM in Healthcare & Education, and Procurement. We hire the same way we source candidates for our clients: taking care to understand the character behind the CV.

The infectious passion and integrity of directors Nick, Richard and Gerry has influenced the culture of our entire team, attracting associate director Hozan, and a lot of great recruiters to join the family. Together we live and breathe the same values.
