Engaging VR on a retained executive search assignment secures a full and rounded partnership, backed by full commitment of our resources, time and expertise.
We recommend our executive search service for appointments of a senior, highly specialised or mission-critical nature. As per our commitment to quality and service, only Principal and Director level Consultants within VR have authority to pitch or carry out executive assignments.
Our processes follow a tried and tested approach, taking us and our clients through the entire journey of fact-finding, market research and talent mapping, headhunting and shortlist delivery and support.
1. Assignment Kick-off
We’ll work with you to understand your full hiring needs and search specification, further supporting on job creation and descriptions if you do not already have this prepared. In addition to understand the role, we aim to better understand the businesses vision and culture.
2. Market Research & Talent Mapping
Before undertaking a search we’ll complete market research and talent mapping to identify both companies and talent we wish to headhunt from.
3. Generation of Supporting Collateral
We generate supporting material to assist us with our approach. This is an important step to ensure that our messaging is right and that we’re positioning your opportunity and firm in the best possible light.
4. Search & Selection
VR will deliver a shortlist of pre-qualified candidates that we represent the upper quartile of the interested talent pool, taking into account the requirements of the role, the company vision and culture within.
5. Interview Support
We support on all interview stages as agreed during the kick-off session. This includes the scheduling of interviews, interview preparation and gathering of feedback post-interview. This is a critical stage of the process, to which we’ll be closely managing the candidate experience, managing expectations and uncovering any concerns early on.
6. Supporting The Close
Once the successful candidate has passed interview stages, we will partner with you to deliver the offer and support the close. Providing full references, managing notice periods and ensuring a smooth transition into your employment.
7. Post-Placement Checkups
We’ll stick with you and the candidate throughout the first 3-months of their employment, ensuring both parties are happy.

Our contingency search service is the traditional ‘payment upon placement’ structure, to which we’ll work to search and select talent to match your requirements and only expect payment upon the successful candidates start date. This is an ideal solution for junior to mid-level hires.
We know that many of our clients have an ongoing interest in talent who possess a particular skill set or background. Our Talent Spotting service is a long-term solution which keeps an eye on the market at all times, spotting and highlighting suitable talent as soon as they become active.
