Metric Search was founded on the belief that the traditional model of mid-to-senior and executive level search is broken. By allowing recruitment consultants to focus in highly specialized and niche markets our consultants are positioned to act quickly and decisively in delivering talent to our partners.

Metric believes in investing into their recruiters to give them market-leading resourcing tools to best source candidates.

We aim to be best-in-class and our 360 approach with an emphasis on customer service allows us to build long-standing, effective partnerships with our clients.

Our process

Onboarding a Vacancy

Either an Account Manager or the relevant consultant would set up an onboarding call with a member of your team to fully understand the scope of the vacancy beyond the job description. This includes; role & responsibilities, requirements (technical/ experience/ personal), challenges faced, ambition, culture, target competitors & progress on the search so far.

We believe a thorough understanding of the vacancy is the strongest basis on which to conduct a successful search.

Search & Selection Process

Our consultants will begin their search using the parameters set out during the onboarding call for the vacancy. We will utilize a mixture of resources to conduct a successful search including our existing network, referrals, advertisement and pro-active headhunting. We do not subscribe to any job boards and believe a proactive approach often targeting candidates that are not actively seeking to work allows our clients to see a wider range & often higher quality shortlists.

Many of our candidates have been known to us for some time but our process for vetting a candidate will normally take between 1 & 3 calls depending on the quality of the preceding calls. We will explore their prior experience & responsibilities, current capabilities & motivations for to make a move to judge their suitability to be able to do the role successfully, whether they will actually make the move should an offer be presented & whether they would also be a cultural fit for your organization.

We place an emphasis on getting to know a candidate on a personal level for a couple of reasons. There are many aspects of an individuals life that can affect their ability to make a move so we feel its important to understand any particular roadblocks or motivators. We also want our candidates to feel we are a trusted source of advice for them which assists in persuading them to join your organization, having connected on a personal level this increases the level of trust.
