Our Approach

EO deploys a unique blend of technology and personal service to deliver the best person for any executive or management role. Our fast-track executive resourcing services deliver senior managers and executives – selected for their specific experience, skills and fit with the client’s organisation – who are available to start work immediately, on an interim or permanent basis, for interim roles, change programmes, and key projects.

At the heart of our service is our talent bank of over 151,000 candidates who operate as independent interim managers, project managers or change management professionals. Selected from over 230,000 applicants, these individuals represent a diverse and highly experienced resource for companies facing a need for talent. Our candidates are hands-on practitioners – not just consultants – whose corporate and independent careers show a strong track record of delivering results.

We also operate an advertising and selection service. Where necessary, mainly for permanent roles, we will also place confidential advertisements on selected job boards, or network through industry contacts, use other relevant search methods where the role requires particularly specialist or scarce skills.

EO uses this website and other technology to expedite and magnify our client and candidate communications, and to attract top-calibre candidates and client opportunities. But we’re not a job board – behind our online presence is a full-service, personalised recruitment operation. Our service includes the development of a detailed brief of each client’s requirements for a role, communication of that brief to the right candidates, assessment of respondents, face-to-face interviewing, reference checking and CV validation – all culminating in the presentation of a short list of two to four of the best candidates for the client’s consideration and subsequent interview.

Our process works extremely fast. Following our receipt of a brief, we can deliver, within days, a short-list for the client to interview. This means a candidate can be on site and working in the space of one or two weeks. We're so confident of our candidates' ability to accomplish what's required, that we offer results-based fees on our interim, change and project management services, which tie part of the candidate’s compensation (and ours) to the successful achievement of project objectives. Permanent recruitment can work equally fast, particularly when the client chooses a candidate from our network of independent professionals. If the chosen candidate is in employment, obviously the time is lengthened by the serving of any notice or transition period.

Our clients – including large blue-chip companies, SMEs, professional service firms, charities and public-sector organisations – have employed EO candidates to launch products, engineer turnarounds, restructure manufacturing operations, and design and execute effective marketing programmes, among many other projects. Sometimes our candidates, for both permanent and interim positions, are simply a quick replacement for a key executive who has departed abruptly.

Our service is ideal for any situation where experienced, effective managers are needed fast, perhaps to:

  • Supplement and strengthen a team
  • Provide a specific set of skills or experience on a temporary basis
  • Execute or accelerate a project
  • Replace a key manager who has departed abruptly
  • Build up a new business, division or team

Fundamentally, our approach is resource based: we believe that most business challenges can be solved effectively with the application of the right management talent, experience and action, either by temporary or permanent staff.

Our fast-track executive resourcing service exists to provide the right person, extremely fast, delivering great value for money.
