Let’s face it.  Top performers spend only a fraction of their working careers looking for a job. 

This means the best people are head down, working in other companies and unlikely to be on job boards or cozying up to recruiters. They are loyal and often underpaid as they are more focused on achieving for their current employer than looking after themselves.  The elusive performers aren’t looking for alternate employment and merely brush off recruiter advances – assuming the recruiter even knew where to search in the first place.

Most of the talented people we identify for our clients are the silent “heroes” of their company or division and many don’t even have a resume. Frequently, powerful executives say to us “this sounds ridiculous but I’m nervous……I haven’t been to an interview in years”. 

So what impact could these performers make on your organisation? How would you like a short list of 3-4 loyal achievers so you have choice?  Should you expect better than hiring the last standing job applicant because you’re stuck and have to?  Are you tired of wasting weeks on a person that lets you down and sets your plans back?  Our business, is elivering on time and minimising risks.

If you suspect the people you need to join your business aren’t looking for work and are head down achieving in a competitive or complementary organisation, Mandlason Search is the way to identify and bring exceptional performers to your discussion table.

My passion is the "black art of headhunting". Nothing can change the destiny more of any organisation than leadership and having the right people, in the right place, doing the right things, at the right time.

Jessica Coombes Head of Delivery

It is very important to make lasting connections with candidates and clients, and to really foster networks in the marketplace. When an opportunity comes up with our clients, we know straight away who will be right for the role. I can always pick who will hit it off with our client and have a lasting career at the company.

I've been with Edward Mandla from the start.  In that time, I've come and gone a couple of times, had a family and even lived in the U.S.  But what hasn't changed is the passion Mandlason Search has for client success.  The sheer knowledge and expertise we have to continually find the people that change the destiny of companies is second to none.

Knowing what the client wants to gain from filling a role is a fundamental aspect of my work. I pride myself in discovering candidates that not only have the right experience for the job, but also fit into our clients' workplace ethos.

We run a methodical process that consistently delivers Short Lists of the right people to our clients in 4-5 weeks.  It's hard enough to go undercover to identify top talent.  Our difference is we know how to talk to these people.  We not only know how to engage with the "heavy hitters" of the industry, we know how to position value to get them to our client's discussion table.
