Why select Spectrum
We compete with the multinational executive search organisations and other boutiques. This is why we are different, and why it matters.
Delivering executive search results that strengthen your organisation
As a key stakeholder in your organisation, optimising performance will be your primary mission. Spectrum represents clients on a retained basis to conduct board and executive searches across all functional disciplines, and we do so in the full knowledge that the search outcome will directly and significantly impact the performance of your business.
Searches are typically complex as our clients are often breaking new ground. It is therefore rarely a matter of simply poaching a senior executive from a competitor. The work we undertake as a team, and in partnership with you, is designed to ensure the successful and timely delivery of the highest quality and most culturally appropriate candidate shortlist for your organisation.
We operate a highly analytical approach in both defining the brief, and in the market research that follows. We then utilise our focused reach, experience, access, selection and negotiation skills to successfully deliver the search.
Searches can be conducted confidentially, and under NDA if required. Reporting is weekly, Post Assignment Market Reports and KPI assessment is standard.

A lot of companies struggle with two apparently unrelated problems: disengaged younger workers and a weak response to changing market conditions.
A few companies have tackled both problems at the same time by creating a “shadow board” — a group of non-executive employees that works with senior executives on strategic initiatives.
