Insight Executive Group

Permanent Services

At Insight we offer a range of world-class recruitment services tailored to suit your unique business needs and budget requirements.

Whether you’re looking for an executive search or a more bespoke solution, our dream team of experts have the knowledge, wisdom and contacts to track down the best candidates and fit them with the perfect role.

Finding Your Professional Family

When you’re welcoming someone as a permanent member of your team, or searching for the organisation to call home, it’s important to use an approach that ensures you find the perfect fit in terms of professional skills, personality, and ethos. At IEG we understand this better than most, as we have been team-orientated and family-focused right from the start. We’ve spent the last few years carefully growing our own dream team; a professional family in our home-away-from-home.

We want you to have that same sense of close-knit camaraderie and effortless collaboration in your own workplace.


Growing Together

While it’s always vital for a candidate to slot seamlessly into their new working environment, interim workers who turn out to be a slightly-less-than-perfect fit aren’t around for long, so a square peg in a round hole can still be used to get the required result. The same cannot be said of permanent roles, where the individual selected will help to nurture the organisation to its fullest potential, while in turn being nourished by the team.

Permanent recruitment is all about finding the perfect combination of working environment, business culture, team dynamics, and individual quirks, so that both the business and the candidate grow and flourish together.

Dedicated To Permanent Excellence

We have the global reach, technical and subject matter expertise, and market insights to help you find that special someone to join your family. We’re dedicated to ensuring the candidate or role we find for you provides a permanent means of achieving excellence in your organisation or career goals.

Our own talented team of niche experts have been forging genuine relationships throughout our industries for years. When you come to Insight for a permanent solution you can be assured of the personal touch from recruiters uniquely positioned to ensure you achieve permanent excellence.

The Insightful Way…

IEG are well-known for our collaborative, holistic, and ethical approach to recruitment (or as we like to call it, the Trust-Centric Method). It all begins with a incisive conversation to determine your requirements (expect some demanding questions!), and ends with a happy match between your business and an individual whose experience, approach and personality fits perfectly.

As international recruitment specialists with global reach and dedication to excellence, we’ll always go above and beyond your typical recruiter. Our highly-experienced consultants can refine job specifications, offer departmental structuring advice, and recruit entire teams.

Insight’s relationship-focused method of recruitment ensures we offer exceptional candidates from our extensive database of highly-recommended executives, all of whom have been thoroughly vetted and sourced from our trusted network of associates.

Why Choose Insight Executive?

Let’s face it, your dream candidate is a catch. If they weren’t, you wouldn’t want them. And what’s the likelihood that they happen to be searching for a new role at exactly the same time you’re trying to fill yours? The odds are, the perfect person for you is currently sitting pretty in an existing role, with no intention of moving any time soon.

If you want them, you’re going to have to woo them.

Or rather, you’re going to want someone with a professional, sensitive, and persuasive approach to recruit them for you.

Using tried and tested techniques and our own unique brand of personal recruiting, we’ll find the best possible person for your role, the most elusive talent on the market, and sweet talk them into joining your family.

There’s a reason our clients say we’re the ‘go-to’ people for persuading ‘passive talent’ to make a move! Take advantage of all the great benefits of our Executive Search package, including:

• Reaching the best candidates in the market, even those not looking for new opportunities.
• Managing the recruitment campaign in line with a strategy that fits your goals and ethos.
• Ensuring objective candidate assessment by handling internal applications.
• Peace of mind and the ability to relax in the knowledge you’ve made a real investment in the future of your business.

93% of our clients describe the knowledge and understanding of the consultants at Insight as ‘good’ or ‘excellent’.

Executive Search

The hallmark of high-level, highly-successful executive companies the world over is a concerted dedication to continued growth. Top organisations understand that it’s not enough to find the best candidate for a role; you need to be dedicated to consistently attracting the elite candidates in your niche.

Individuals perfectly suited to your business culture and ethos.

Rising stars and experts in your industry who will help you ensure true diversity, constant innovation, ever-increasing brand value and visibility, clarity of vision, and strength of strategy.

The most successful companies are committed to creating the ultimate dream team.

At Insight Executive we’re fully aware of the power that comes with finding the right people. We also know it doesn’t happen by accident, and it doesn’t happen overnight.

Our Executive Searches take full control of your recruiting experience, ensuring you get the best possible results. We work through every stage with you, from the marketing and networking, into the assessment, selection and interviewing, leading to the rejection of unsuccessful candidates, and offer-management stages.

Think of Insight as your brand ambassadors; reliable, relatable, and dependable. We’re here to represent your best interests throughout the process, and ensure you find the perfect fit.

As an Executive Search customer you will receive a consultative, discrete, and dedicated approach, which allows your recruiter to comprehensively cover the market in order to uncover the individual with the right combination of talent, passion, and exceptional skills for your specific role.

We follow a set route during the process, which will be clearly mapped for you at the start. You will receive regular updates and be consulted at every stage of the journey. This will enable you to manage upwards while having the reassurance that a well-maintained recruitment campaign is underway.

You will also have peace of mind that there will be no escalating costs associated with your Executive Search, as the fee remains fixed. You will pay a portion of this upfront, followed by an additional deposit when your short-list is finished, another at the interview stage, and a final payment of the outstanding amount on completion. As a results-driven service, your completion fee will be the largest of these payment, ensuring you are completely satisfied with the outcome.

An Executive Search involves several stages:



  1. An Initial Exploration to determine your requirements.
  2. A Long List of candidates along with a further discussion of your needs.
  3. Candidate Evaluation, including a thorough referencing process which relies on our trusted network of contacts.
  4. A Short List for your consideration.
  5. Interviews followed by the selection of your perfect candidate.
  6. The Offer is made to your chosen candidate who, following negotiations and contract signature, resigns from any existing role.
  7. Results Analysis, which assesses the success of your recruiting campaign.
  8. A Review Period, which usually lasts between 60 and 90 days.

Just as you’re dedicated to finding the perfect candidate, we’re determined to ensure every single potential suitor is personally approved by our extensive network of industry experts.

And knowing that not all candidates will be successful, yet all are worthy of great service, we do everything possible to ensure their experience with us is first class…
