There are many reasons to use Artisan People for your executive recruitment needs.

Saving time finding the best candidates

Recruitment takes a lot of time, especially when you’re recruiting for leadership roles. For every job advertised, there are always a great many applications, so you could end up looking through a significant number of CVs before coming up with a shortlist. With some jobs attracting literally hundreds, sometimes thousands of applications, your talent search could take a significant amount of time – time that could be better spent on doing what you’re good at. Having support from the right executive search partner will help you fast-track the process, saving you valuable time and enabling you to focus on your core business.

Screening candidates

We know that people who look perfect on paper can turn out to be wrong for your business. That’s why we’ll save you time by doing the initial screening process, to make sure that by the time you’re interviewing, everyone you meet genuinely has the potential to be the perfect candidate.

For all roles, our candidates are selected after successfully demonstrating the following skills:

  • Competency
  • Outgoing personality
  • Passion
  • Genuine interest in the sector
  • Great communication skills
  • Great leadership ability
  • Motivation
  • Flexibility
  • Reliability
  • Commitment to go the ‘extra mile’

A talent pool of experienced candidates

If you’re only hiring once in a while, you could be missing out on the ideal candidate. Job ads depend on people who are actively looking for work seeing it in the short time period it is active. On the other hand, as a leading executive search agency, we already have a large talent pool of experienced candidates, as well as many contacts we have built up over the years, who may not even be actively looking for work but who are open to considering new opportunities. We will already have interviewed them to get to know them better and will get in touch to see if they are interested in any suitable opportunities that come along. It’s possible that your shortlist will include high-quality candidates who aren’t actively looking for a new job and who might otherwise be unaware the perfect opportunity has just opened up for them!


Our experienced team of permanent recruiters have many years’ experience in both the executive search industry and in the industry sectors we serve. This means we have a great understanding of the sort of person you’re looking for, and have the experience to choose the best candidates for your shortlist quickly. The sooner you start interviewing, the sooner your new hire will be able to start!

Permanent recruitment solutions the Artisan way

We will only put forward quality candidates who not only fit the job description, but who will also fit in with your company culture. As part of the permanent recruitment process, we get to know all of our clients well enough to get a deep understanding of their business goals and expertise, including the company culture. Having such an in-depth knowledge of your goals and your needs will enable us to deliver high quality candidates who we know will be a good fit, both for the new role and for your brand.
