Executive Search.

Advanced Approach.

A confidential retained service suited to niche, senior roles.

We understand that not all hires are the same, and the contingent recruitment model is not always the right solution when it comes to critical, senior, or strategic hires.

Certain roles can be much more challenging to fill and require a much more rigorous methodology. They may be in a difficult location, require a really niche skill set, be time sensitive or be a particularly important senior hire.

We deliver the honest advice, clear communication and consistent high-quality service that make us trusted partners for any challenge and in any circumstances. 

Market Experts.

Operating in a complex and fast-changing industry sector, we understand the importance of specialist knowledge. Each of our recruitment consultants are sector experts and work in just one core functional area.

This allows us to provide expert advice and access to highly specialised networks, ensuring we offer the very best service to our clients.

Executive Search Experts

Targeted Process.

With our exclusive search services, you gain confidential access to the best passive talent in the market.

To achieve this i-Pharm couples intelligent analytical search techniques with a fair and transparent fee structure.

Our specialist Recruiters guide you and the successful candidate through the offer process and once an offer is accepted, we help the candidate manage their resignation and deal with counter offers from their current employer.

At all times we keep you informed and involved, working in partnership to achieve the best person for your role, team, and company.

Flexible Solutions.

Highly specialist candidates

Our Executive Search service offers flexible pricing, a subject matter expert supported by a specialist delivery team, and our full commitment to working with you until the position is filled.

  • Contained search – success weighted with smaller upfront fee. Best for niche roles with low numbers of suitable candidates.
  • Retained search – map the wider candidate market and have ownership of candidate lists for present as well as potential future use.
