“Clarity's speed and responsiveness are outstanding. They know the market extremely well and most importantly have delivered great people”
Andy Bond Chairman Wiggle, Former CEO Asda
We founded Clarity because we believe that Executive Search is a deeply personal business, based on reputation, trust and track record. This is borne out by the fact that most of our assignments come from existing or previous clients and the rest via word-of-mouth and recommendations.
A placed candidate often becomes a client and trusts us to help them build a top team which can deliver their vision for the business, whether that is growth, transformation or restructuring.
We called the company Clarity for a reason:
- We will bring Clarity to the brief
- We Clarify the available talent pool and key drivers of success
- We are Clear on process, costs and timings
“The Clarity team consistently delivers great people! They aim high, creatively leveraging a network that is second to none”
Paul Mason Chairman Cath Kidston, Chairman Mayborn and Former CEO Somerfield
Executive Search is essentially a people business which requires a balance of empathy and commercial acumen and these are the skills we look for and nurture in our consultants and researchers.
We need to quickly build rapport with both clients and candidates – gaining their trust and understanding their motivations, as well as grasping the key elements of the brief or the main achievements of their careers.
- We listen intently
- We challenge appropriately
- We get under the skin of the business and bring creative solutions to the table
At Clarity we take a team orientated approach, sharing ideas, brainstorming problems and opportunities and celebrating success. It is our relentless focus on delivering quality to our clients which enables us to enjoy loyal, trusting and long lasting relationships with some of the most respected retail and consumer companies.
“They really take the time to understand both the client and assignment. They are totally focused on client satisfaction and finding the right candidate”
Tony DeNunzio CBE, Chairman Maxeda, Chairman Pets at Home, Operating Partner KKR
Our recent clients include:
“The Clarity team have understood our business and fully immersed themselves in supporting us in recruiting great talent into the organisation. Their drive and determination and their focus on results is beyond exceptional”
