Excellence as Executive Appointments Consultancy Continues to Expand

Recruiting across Greater London’s professional services sectors has its challenges, and has often been described as “a slog” for some recruiters, even in the most buoyant of markets.

With demands for matching a candidate and a client including the obvious technical ability and skill-set, through to the cultural fit and experience level, it’s an ever-changing and ever-challenging notion, both for recruiters and for the hiring managers trying to grow a team.

The phenomenal growth Forsyth Barnes has witnessed since their inception in 2015 is a testament to employing and developing ‘the right people, to find the right people’, and with their recent accolade of being ranked the 16th best Startup in the whole of the UK, alongside ranking first where the recruitment businesses in the index were concerned, Forsyth Barnes have again demonstrated that excellence is paramount.

Most hiring managers will empathise with the idea that finding talent is hard. Finding the right talent to find the right talent however, is a challenge in its own, and one that Forsyth Barnes are overcoming. In early June, they appointed Tom Nash as a Junior Partner, just the latest member of the growing Forsyth Barnes’ team.

Tom’s career has spanned over a decade in the City, having successfully headhunted for typically niche positions that the more traditional contingent recruitment firms have failed to deliver on. He is now heading up the Permanent Executive Search function at Forsyth Barnes and brings a wealth of knowledge across multiple sectors both nationally and internationally.

As reports from the Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) have shown, client needs and expectations within the permanent market have continued to increase month on month, having reported back in April 2017 that “candidates available for perm roles in London fell for the 46th consecutive month during March”.

For professionals working in the permanent market, this trend is highlighting the need for more succinct processes and a less volume based approach as “active” talent numbers continue to decrease, mirroring Forsyth Barnes’ approach.

With their relationship building ethos and proactive approach to finding solutions and the best talent in the market, the team are continually expanding both their client and candidate networks – a direct result of continued proven excellence which has led to further recommendations, further introductions, and continued customer satisfaction. Their thorough knowledge and long-standing relationships are testament to their pro-active approach with both candidates and clients, often delivering where others cannot due to a lack of visibility and market penetration.

Whether you are in the market looking to secure top talent for your team, seeking a challenging career move, or just interested in talking to like-minded, knowledgeable and above all honest, reputable and award-winning networkers in your sector, the team at Forsyth Barnes will always be glad to hear from you.
