Our Specialist Executive Division

What's the twist?

We back ourselves and our service to you; everyone talks a good game, but how do they back it up?

We offer a free twelve-month replacement if an Executive we have found for you doesn’t work out for any reason in the first year.

Of course, there are terms and conditions, but we want to work with you closely on a long-term basis to ensure your new employees work well for your business, so you will find them agreeable

How We Work

The closer we work with you, the better the results

Everything we do is about communication at every step of the process; the clearer, more frank and frequent conversations give the best results. Everyone is busy, but we will talk with you anytime or evening to get the best results.


Obtain a detailed brief on the role

The more detailed, the better; it is crucial we understand not just the skills and experience to fill the vacancy, but the type of person who will fit into the team, the environment they will work in and why they would want to join your business.


Source candidates with relevant skills and experience

We have many routes to source candidates, and with years of experience, we are very good at identifying the best candidate for your vacancy. Matching your culture and business environment is extremely important to us.

STEP THREE Professionally Screen candidates

The key is to check motivation for the role and business. We will have several detailed conversations to check and confirm suitability; we will ensure the candidate has looked well at your business and is motivated to work for you. If there is any doubt, we will not put them forward.


Present a select few candidates, who we would hire

If you are looking for dozens of CVs, you will be disappointed. We very much work on quality rather than quantity, priding ourselves on sending quality CVs that are screened by our teams to ensure you get the maximum success when hiring.

What People Think About Our Service

The Clifford Stone difference is all about communication. Upfront they take the time to ask insightful questions and really listen to the answers, so they get under the skin of the brief. When we have a candidate in the process, they will liaise directly and concisely at whatever time’s convenient for the client.

I’ve had many conversations with them over breakfast, dinner and running between meetings, enabling me to get on with my day job. And finally, when closing, their precise understanding of fit between candidate and client, saves both wasted time and effort by ensuring the proper expectations are set on both sides.

Testimonials Continued...

I have worked with a range of recruitment specialists throughout my career from both looking for new talent to recruit and when looking for my next career opportunity and I have found out that not all recruitment agents are the same. I found Darren amongst the very best I have come across.

I am so pleased I found them, they genuinely cared about what I was looking for and helped me find the right next step for me in my career. I would have hesitation in recommending Darren and his team to anyone looking for their next role or for companies looking for a recruitment partner that will take the time to understand what they need over and above the basic job specification. Then find the right choice of candidates for your organisation, who they will have met and assessed, rather than throw multiple CVs in your direction hoping one of them sticks.
