Good recruitment is good for business. Those who get it right experience 3.5 times more revenue growth and twice the profit margin of others. We’ve been recruiting since 1998 so there’s not much we don't know about the industry. Why take unnecessary risks when you could benefit from an expert service that gets it right first time?
We're brilliant at candidate shortlisting because we've been doing it for decades. We only send you applications from candidates with the right levels of experience. And yes- we can also spot the wild cards!
Search & Select will not charge the employer a penny until our candidate is successfully hired, so satisfaction and success is guaranteed
The average recruitment time in the UK is 36 days, although some positions can take over 6 months. This can leave a revenue gap that can be damaging to operations and profit. Search & Select understands the importance of mobilising within hours rather than days.
We are very, very experienced at striking a balance between protecting your privacy and proactively looking for your next hire.
We take time to understand your business values and business culture to be able to match candidates to fit. Good matches mean people stay longer, thrive in their roles and bring real value to your business.
Going through the process of advertising, shortlisting and interviewing and still not finding the right person is expensive and disheartening. A bad hire is like that but X 10. Search & Select significantly reduces hire time and overhead. We also guarantee success, or your money back.
Search & Select enjoys an outstanding reputation for attracting the very best talent and when you work with us, you get full access to that pool. Enjoy the competitive advantage of accessing candidates who are discreetly looking and not registered with other recruiters.
We provide a candidate screening service on a bespoke basis. This includes any pre-employment checks that you wish for us to carry out such as the following, and more:

Redundancy is a difficult time for everyone. The opportunity is in creating professionally managed outplacement programs to help departing members move on to new careers; offering one to one counselling, or targeted group sessions, to help instil positive thinking and strengthen confidence.
Outplacement support is also a worthwhile investment in morale; a subtle form of communication to remaining employees left feeling unsettled and concerned about the future. At Search & Select we offer the specialist support to assist the individuals your organisation may release or redeploy as a result of market conditions/business change. We have many years' experience in providing specialist outplacement support to individuals across a range of professions. Our programmes focus on encouraging people to think positively about change; we are well equipped to deal with the full range of emotions associated with redundancy and the need to rebuild individual confidence allowing them to embrace the job search.
Recognising that the organisational context as well as the individual perspective will vary across different professions or sectors, we can tailor our service to suit your organisation and the needs of your individuals.
Our team of experienced and knowledgeable consultants utilise a range of focused training material to support individuals through career transition or change, covering career coaching/honest job market information/counselling/techniques for finding new employment.
If you are considering buying, merging or selling your business, Signature Acquisitions offers a discreet introductory service to help put you together and facilitate discussions with qualified prospects.

If you are planning for the future or would like to move on from your business it can be very difficult to know which way to turn. Search & Select offers a confidential service to see you through changing times- anything from the sale of a business through to the appointment of a new board.
