Finding leadership talent is one thing, actually engaging potential candidates is another. Frequently, the people we identify are not actively seeking a move.
To engage with the most impressive candidates in the UK and international markets, requires credibility and a compelling proposition. As an extension of your brand, Baxter Neumann positively differentiate in both.
Typically, we find leadership talent (Directors and Non-Executive Directors) in the salary range £100,000-£300,000. As you would expect our approach is highly professional and sophisticated, utilising the latest technology to provide our clients with a more informed candidate insight and capability. Compared to our competitors, Odgers, Russell Reynolds et al, our fees are significantly lower. In a recent survey of 44 leading brands, twice as many participants recommended Baxter Neumann over Egon Zehnder and Korn Ferry. We differentiate via a uniquely creative approach to the hiring process…. and it works.
Not only is each assignment led and delivered by a Partner in the company: it is supported by an integrated team of professionals covering research, psychometric assessments, candidate management and market intelligence.
Feedback highlights that the Baxter Neumann approach and tools are unique in the market; our aim is to differentiate your employer brand by working with speed, professionalism and know-how to deliver a high caliber short list. Faster and more cost effectively than any major firm listed above. With the guarantee: if we do not achieve our shared objectives, do not pay the invoice.
Project deliverables are measured in ‘days’ not months as we believe the search process does not get better with age. With more insightful candidate information and advanced scheduling of the client’s time we help target the best available talent and reach closure more efficiently.
Global search capability
Our track record speaks for itself. Baxter Neumann has successfully completed executive level searches for global clients in the UK, Europe, USA, Asia, Middle East and Africa. Frequently the projects are of confidential nature involving a complex network of internal stakeholders in the decision/alignment process.
A number of clients access Baxter Neumann research capability to map target segments of talent. Frequently, this is to benchmark competitor structures and resource levels prior to engaging in a Search or sometimes it is to use external Research capability for follow through by an in-house recruitment team. We are happy to work with Clients collaboratively to support their range of needs.
