Executive Search

Recruit the right CEO, COO, or Managing Director for your firm.

Today’s global economy spawns a global workforce. Nowhere is this more so than for executive and senior-level positions in both the private and public sectors. The highly competitive nature of the global economy compels organisations to strive to recruit the very best candidates available. This translates to searching beyond national borders.

Cartisian Technical Recruitment operates on a world-wide basis and specialises in locating highly suited individuals to fill defined roles in automation, aerospace and defence, the automotive sectors, science and technology, general engineering and manufacturing, FMGC, IT & Infrastructure, Purchasing Supply Chain & Logistics, Finance, and Sales & Marketing.

Our extensive executive search network offers clients the opportunity to unearth the very best and most talented candidates at a global level. We can screen and meet prospective executives, and carry out preliminary candidate interviews across numerous countries.

The consultants in our executive search and selection division have many years of industry experience. We take pride in guiding and supporting our clients towards building strong executive teams and implementing effective leadership structures within their organisations.

Executive and senior-level personnel make a huge impact on the success of an organisation but individuals who can fill such roles are in short supply and are widely sought.

Cartisian Technical Recruitment will work closely with clients to locate outstanding executive and senior-level candidates. We will act as the voice of our clients throughout the candidate engagement process. All candidates will undergo a rigorous selection process before being presented for further consideration.

We can locate candidates for permanent, contract and interim appointments, and arrange psychometric and competency testing if required. We can also negotiate remuneration and benefit packages as well as prepare draft contracts of employment. We will structure our approach according to the needs of your business.

To recruit top executive and senior-level personnel you need a top recruitment consultancy. At Cartisian Technical Recruitment we aim to differentiate ourselves through our technical knowledge of specialist sectors, our access to a large database and by operating out of both England and the Czech Republic. Our head office is centrally located in Solihull and we have a satellite office in Prague. This enables us to meet candidates and carry out interviews in many different countries.

We also distinguish ourselves through our ability to identify and attract difficult-to-find candidates for difficult-to-fill positions. If other recruitment consultants have tried and failed to find a candidate that meets your requirements, then we believe we can locate that elusive individual.

Commissions undertaken by our executive search and selection division are typically on a retained and exclusive basis thus ensuring we deliver the very best in both service and quality.  And because we understand the sensitive nature of our assignments we can operate on a strictly confidential basis.

In this way we will endeavour to support you in a recruitment process that is both successful and painless so that Cartisian becomes your first choice recruitment consultancy.

Managing Director Recruitment

Recruiting the right managing director for your business is crucial in order to optimise and streamline the connection between the board and the daily strategic running of the business. The MD, or CEO, is effectively in charge of the general running of the business and will be charged with making decisions that affect all areas, from staffing, to finance, to research and development. Communication in this role is key, and it’s vital that your firm’s managing director is not only a capable and experienced manager, but also an understanding, aware, charismatic, and receptive individual. They need to have supreme vision, to forecast potential financial, political, or commercial situations, and have the motivation and adaptability to make effective use of that knowledge.

The buck stops at the MD. The responsibility of profitability and reputation of your company will all hang on the shoulders of the CEO you recruit. They would certainly deserve a healthy remuneration package, but that comes with culpability for any failings, and conversely strong acclamation for successes. Ensure that the candidate you eventually choose, after the numerous rounds of interviews and testing, not only has the skills and experience your firm requires, but also the drive, focus, and passion your company need to weather storms and push towards greater things.
