Prism’s Unusual Approach to Consulting Recruitment

Consulting recruitment at Prism

Prism Executive Recruitment is not a typical consultancy recruitment agency. We pride ourselves on our unusual approach to consulting recruitment in developing real long-term relationships with the people we work with based on honesty and transparency. By working with Prism, you stand to benefit from our considerable sourcing and search expertise, unrivalled market knowledge and an extensive network of contacts which we have acquired from over 15 years operating in the consultancy recruitment industry.

We cultivate an in-depth understanding for each sub sector we recruit for and the career goals of each of our candidates. This allows us to match consulting job vacancies with well-suited individuals capable of furthering the growth and success of each business we recruit for.

In the field of management consultancy recruitment Prism specialise in the following sectors:

  • Financial services
  • Health and life sciences
  • Manufacturing
  • Oil and energy
  • Public sector
  • Retail and consumer
  • Telecoms and media

Prism appreciate that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to management consultancy and executive recruitment. Our unwavering commitment to flexible sourcing solutions and charging structures allows us to employ different recruitment approaches that provide the most suitable solution for the needs of each particular client. This has been vital in helping to establish Prism Executive Recruitment among the market leaders in executive and consultant recruitment, as demonstrated by our status as an Associate Partner of the Management Consultancies Association and winner of “Top Management Consultancy Recruiter of the Year” award for nine years’ running.

We specialise in filling job vacancies seeking candidates with a management consulting background, particularly in strategy, change, IT and transformation. These include roles in project and programme management and business transformation. Prism are also actively engaged in recruitment for technology roles, sourcing consulting job candidates capable of delivering IT strategy expertise, enterprise systems transformation and IT leadership.

Executive search and selection

Prism Executive Recruitment pioneered the development of this hybrid retained service. With executive search and selection, your company can benefit from a targeted recruitment search approach that also incorporates a well-planned broader candidate sourcing campaign. The multiple channels employed in this approach to consulting recruitment allows for an extensive review of both the active and passive candidate market.

Database search

Our approach to consulting recruitment is far more flexible than most other search and selection recruitment consultancies offer. With database search, at Prism we use our candidate databases and tap into our extensive network of consulting talent to fill job vacancies on a ‘no placement, no fee’ basis.

Our clients often prefer us to handle assignments by employing a comprehensive and dedicated job candidate sourcing and recruitment process, though we recognise that there are indeed situations where companies are looking to fill a vacancy with a ‘quick-fix’ solution. This is where an ongoing review of consulting talent from our candidate database may offer the most expeditious method for matching suitable candidates with consulting job vacancies.

It should be mentioned that with most talented candidates experiencing LinkedIn fatigue our database, built over 15 years and comprising qualified candidates who are both familiar with Prism and warm to our contact, is a unique asset.
