Research begins with our unparalleled Global database of over 52,000 finance professionals.
Nonetheless, our research does not stop there; the extensive professional network of our practice specialists, comprehensive research into target organisations, as well as thorough use of sophisticated, real-time search tools add depth as we continually refine and grow our market intelligence.
While most commonly associated with our retained executive search services, our internal research teams are also commissioned by clients for stand-alone mapping projects. Clients often wish to understand either a geographic market or an industry sector before making a long-term strategic investment.
Our research services can provide target maps of companies, profiles of competitors and individuals in the form of long lists or highlight potential investment opportunities for our clients.
At Huddleston Jones, we are often approached by our clients when their organisations are undergoing growth or transformation. We believe our role is not just to support this growth, but guide our clients towards transformational appointments that provide strategic contribution and lasting value.
Selecting the best is a matter of judgement. Clients will always see the best results from a search partner whose values they share. At Huddleston Jones, search is not just about network, it requires skill, expertise, knowledge and determination delivered at the highest standards.
We strive to identify not only the demands, qualifications, expectations, and responsibilities of the position to be filled, but also the client’s longer-term goals, organisational structure, and culture.
Our experience in the wealth sector allows us to quickly grasp client needs and business drivers. We know that clients not only want a good quality and well researched shortlist but also detailed information on the market place.
We are skilled at connecting with sources and candidates to discuss opportunities, and generate both interest and ideas. The combination of our reputation, individual and collective experience base, and vast professional network ensures that our calls will be taken and messages will be returned. In essence we get the candidates in front of you no one else can.
In today’s ever changing banking sector, market share continues to be the number one agenda for most institutions; success or failure can be the difference between ‘knowing’ your competitor and truly ‘understanding’ their business. We not only utilise our mapping to support our searches, but often undertake comprehensive profiling of market sectors for our clients to realign their human capital requirements and strategic focus.
