HOW WE WORK

Preparing your career step

Preparing your career step

You only get one chance at a first impression! Remember – the more we know about you the better. It is also important that there is transparency and trust from the start as it can only help ensure your career move will be the right one.

Here are a few points you should think about carefully in order to help us ensure you a rewarding and fulfilling career step:

- what do I really want from my next career step?

- what are the things that I really enjoy, dislike or miss in my current job?

- What is my key added value to an employer? What differentiates me from the competition?

If you would like to take the next step and get in touch, please use our contact form and our team will happily guide you through the necessary steps from the word go.

Search services

Search services

Our core expertise and the foundations of our business: we find you talent.

Ultimately, we always tailor our services to our clients’ best needs and procedures. Depending on your talent requirements and the urgency in sourcing it we will advise you on the best structure. These are the most popular search mandate structures:

Executive Search:

Performed on an exclusive basis and usually undertaken by a team of 2-3 of DART’s finest consultants to execute with diligence and efficiency, our flagship service is the most popular service for our clients seeking a new senior management hire, a very rare skill set or needing to discreetly replace a manager in their organisation. Underlining our commitment to the successful conclusion of all searches we undertake, our retainers come with a performance guarantee.

Contingency Search:

Our search service for less senior positions but nevertheless requiring the methodical and quality-driven service for which we are renowned. Even without a retainer this service is performed on an exclusive basis ensuring the best representation of our clients in the market.

Continuous Search:

Would you like the reassurance of a professional, trusted partner to support your business’ growth with a solid pipeline of top talent for any requirement you have? Or perhaps your experience has taught you that you need to make several key hires per year and you would like the peace of mind of a trusted talent partner poised to secure them for you. Not only is it an economical choice, but it also ensures you the peace of mind and time to focus on your business.

Team Search:

If you are building a new Investments team or capability, or expanding into a new geographical market, you can warrant an immediate impact by hiring a well-versed team. Securing a team requires a high level of research, the right approach and negotiating finesse.
