We provide talent services for professional associations. membership organisations, and learning providers.

Our services include talent acquisition, talent assessment, and talent development.

 What makes us different?

coutts-4106-C-500px FionaOur expertise in our specialist market –– professional associations, membership organisations, 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 discretionOnly 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.

Meeting us

We meet our clients either at their offices or at a local branch of the Institute of Directors (IoD) — or incognito due to the sensitive nature of a search assignment. IoD locations are accessible for wheel-chair users (however, please provide notice in advance if you have any special requirements).

Typically we meet our candidates over 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.
