We offer you a real choice of candidates

Our research is thorough, rigorous and based on our extensive industry knowledge. Our aim is to give you as broad a range of outstanding candidates as possible, so you have real choice about who to appoint.

Despite our highly detailed approach, we typically complete a search, from brief to shortlist, within eight to 10 weeks.

We pride ourselves on the quality and frequency of our communications both with clients and candidates, and we will keep you in the loop at all stages of an assignment.

Our decades of experience not only in executive search and recruitment but in senior leadership roles in the automotive industry mean we appreciate the importance of brand.

We approach each assignment as custodians of your brand, ensuring that candidates leave the process with a favourable impression of your company whether or not they are successful.

The Brief

Before we undertake a search assignment, we need to gain as full an understanding as possible about the vacancy and the type of candidate you are seeking to recruit.

We spend as long as it takes to gather all the information we need, paying particular attention to understanding the values and culture of your company to make sure we select the most appropriate candidates.

Based on the brief, we work closely with you to create a candidate pack. This is a powerful, professionally presented document that we send to selected candidates detailing the client’s organisation, the structure of the business or department and the job description, including any competency-based requirements.

The Search

We believe that search assignments are best carried out when the brief is fresh in the mind, so we waste no time in starting the selection process.

For each assignment we work from a wide-ranging ‘long list’ of potential candidates, usually identifying and speaking at length to many more individuals than is typical in an executive search.

Candidates who are deemed suitable for the role and who are interested in applying are invited to in-depth, face-to-face interviews with a senior member of the Ennis & Co team.

The Shortlist

We are regularly praised by clients for the breadth and quality of our shortlists, always ensuring that clients have a genuine choice about who to interview.

We aim to provide high-quality candidates who offer diversity and a range of backgrounds and who reflect the culture and values of the specific client.

We present our final shortlist in a comprehensive search report that contains a wealth of other valuable information about the selection process. This has proved invaluable to many of our clients for the purposes of benchmarking, succession planning and talent mapping.
