Appoint Us

We recruit the people responsible for your organisation’s communications, reputation, change and influence.

Expertise in Breadth

We recruit the entire communications team. Together we build and shape the best teams because out experts understand every role in the entire function.

Expertise in Depth

We help you hire the most senior people in your communications and advocacy team, and everyone who reports to them (full time and interim contractors).

Partnership based on transparency

You have more choices of how to recruit than ever before. So when it comes to choosing an external recruitment partner, getting the right balance between cost of hire, process and outcome can be a bit tricky. We think being transparent makes it less so.

DIVERSITY

We don’t pay lip service to it, we practise it. When you retain our services, or work with us exclusively, your search is conducted using our unique EA Diversity Methodology. Developed by our Director Tom Ewen, it ensures diversity is right at the centre of the search and not an afterthought. It also gives you clear evidence of intent, benchmarking you against your peers.

SERVICE

We all strive to give our employees, stakeholders and customers a great experience. So why do those people looking to join an organisation – candidates – often have such a poor one? We don’t believe that an application from a junior person should get less of a service than that from a director. When you retain us, or work with us exclusively, our team will ensure your brand and organisation’s values are experienced by everyone applying to join you.

COSTS

It’s been said that agreeing fees with headhunters can feel like the ‘haggling’ scene in Life of Brian. So we have developed a transparent process. The price of conducting your search won’t be based on haggling over percentages. Instead, together we will establish how difficult the assignment is, the timescales involved and which member of our team you want to work with. You will be pleasantly surprised by our approach. It results in the right price, often considerably less than our competitors.
