Our Services

Retained Executive Search and Selection

Prism Executive Recruitment was one of the pioneers in the development of this hybrid retained service, which combines the benefits of a specific targeted recruitment search with those of a well-planned broader candidate sourcing campaign across multiple channels offering a far reaching and comprehensive review of the active and passive candidate market.

A powerful recruitment approach

The attraction of the executive search and selection approach is that we can identify and agree with the client a small number of specific target companies or individuals (i.e. direct competition), as well as attracting a wider pool of candidates for job vacancies using sources such as online subscription databases, online advertising, Prism’s unrivalled and extensive database, LinkedIn, recommendations and referrals etc.

This service includes everything you would expect from a retained recruitment approach, such as:

  • Comprehensive and agreed candidate specification and sourcing proposal
  • Full Assignment Brief
  • Intensive and extensive candidate sourcing programme
  • Dedicated interviewing of potential candidates
  • Interview appraisal
  • Shortlist presentation

In addition the client has the certainty of an extremely focused, dedicated and time-intensive approach which invariably yields far superior results yet costs the employer little more than a basic multiple agency database approach.

This reflects a much more flexible recruitment approach than most search and selection consultancies can provide. Prism Executive Recruitment is able to access its candidate database and extensive network   on a ‘no placement no fee’ basis. Whilst many clients retain us to handle assignments with a comprehensive and dedicated candidate sourcing and recruitment process, we recognise that many companies prefer a different charging structure.

What this recruitment method offers clients

We have a strong database in the management consultancy and technology markets, built up and maintained since we commenced trading, and we continue to invest in growing our networks.  Many of these candidates are not actively in the job market or are exclusively registered with Prism. These contacts ensure we can provide a speedy, cost effective and results-related solution to a pressing recruitment requirement.  In the era of LinkedIn everyone thinks they have a ready made candidate list to source from but the reality is that a database of interviewed and qualified candidates, with contact details and in many cases “history” with Prism is invaluable.

Naturally we also combine this approach with a broader resourcing strategy to ensure that the client has access to both active and passive candidate talent from a range of sources.


Interim Management

Our interim and contract business mirrors our permanent recruitment business. We specialise in providing candidates with a management consulting background, typically experts in change and transformation or technology including:

  • Project and Programme Management
  • Business Transformation and Change
  • Business Process Improvement including lean and operational excellence
  • Digital
  • Finance
  • Strategy

On the IT consulting side, we provide candidates who can deliver:

  • IT strategy
  • Enterprise and Technical Architecture
  • Enterprise systems
  • IT leadership

A cost effective solution

As well as being high calibre candidates with exceptional consulting backgrounds Prism Executive Recruitment’s interim consultants have the added benefit of being more cost effective – often half the cost of equivalent resources from management consulting firms.
