What makes us different?
Our expertise in our specialist market –– professional membership organisations, awarding bodies, and learning providers. We have specialist networks and a highly qualified database of both active and passive senior candidates. We also understand how to effectively search the marketplace for candidates from both within and outside the sector.
Our candidate-centric model: we can speak with candidates not only within traditional working hours, but also before or after work or at weekends.
Our discretion: Only senior, highly experienced, team members approach and interact with candidates. This helps to ensure confidentiality on search assignments, including the most sensitive.
Our continuity management: Every client and shortlisted candidate we work with is provided with two contacts at FJWTS. This helps us to provide business continuity to manage contingencies day-to-day, as well as during holidays and any unplanned absence.
Our senior business experience: Role briefings are only ever taken by a headhunter or resourcing manager who has senior business/leadership experience themselves. This enables peer-to-peer, consultative, interactions with our clients up to (and including) C-Suite level.
Clients may meet us either at their offices or at a local branch of the Institute of Directors (IoD). IoD locations are accessible for wheel-chair users (though please notify us in advance if you have any special requirements).
Candidates typically meet us over Zoom, Skype, Facetime or Google hangouts. This enables us to provide a highly flexible service outside traditional working hours (and including weekends). We’re also happy to meet candidates in person, at a location to suit.
Portraits of our team members, comprising employees and long-term associates, are provided on our team page. The functions they fulfil are as follows:

Anthony Haynes writes: A common risk for small businesses, perhaps especially micro-enterprises, is giving insufficient attention to developments outside the business itself and its immediate network. When there is time for planning and reviewing, the temptation is to focus on the business’s own products and processes. Should we review our prices? How can we reduce… Read More

One of our earliest posts, for example, featured some research from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) about the extent to which employment provided a route out… Read More
