Welcome to Executive Partnerships

Introducing Executive Partnerships

Have you ever been contacted by a recruitment agent about a position, enthusiastically replied but never heard a thing back?

Have you sent in your CV, sought out help finding a new and more exciting role, only to be told about openings that aren’t even as good as your current position?

Have you tried to recruit your next PA or EA superstar and just been sent a lot of unqualified, unskilled, and inexperienced candidates?

If you answered yes to any of the above, then Executive Partnerships is for you.

Too often, in big corporate recruitment agencies, what really matters — a positive customer experience — gets lost in the fog of targets, corporate initiatives, and the drive for profit above all else. I’ve been there. I know I can do better.

Your PA, EA and business support recruitment partners

After studying law (the longest four years of my life!) I entered the world of work for one of the UK’s biggest recruiters as a secretarial and business support specialist. I quickly took on more responsibilities and got to see from the perspective of a Manager and Director just how the industry worked.

To be honest, I was very successful — I exceeded my targets and made great, long-lasting placements and relationships. But, the sheer pace and expectations prevented me from spending the time with clients and candidates that is required in order to offer a genuinely exceptional quality of service.

My drive to create a recruitment agency with a heart

It’s a cliché, for sure, but I’m from a family of entrepreneurs — smart people who saw a gap in a market and took a risk to fill it with something better. I’ve dreamed since I was young of setting up on my own.

And since entering the recruitment world, I’ve dreamed of setting up a company where we were able to do all we can to meet our clients’ needs (not our shareholders’) and offer a truly bespoke, personalised service to each and every candidate and hiring manager that engages us. I know it is possible — that’s what Executive Partnerships will do.

This is what drives our business, and it’s why we’ve put HEART front and centre of business as part of our core, founding values:

  • Happiness – Happy, content, and well-suited employees are more productive.
  • Excellence – A fundamental belief that business only succeeds on the back of customer service excellence.
  • Agility— The ability to be flexible to our clients’ and our candidates’ needs and to offer a bespoke, personalised approach.
  • Reliability — A desire to be your recruitment partner, a team you can rely on to understand your need and to look after them.
  • Trust — Be safe in the knowledge that we value our relationships above all else.

We look forward to partnering with you

If you’re looking for a recruitment partner with a difference, who will genuinely look after your needs, and will offer the exceptional level of customer experience you rightly expect then welcome. We look forward to partnering with you.

Be assured that we understand that a PA, EA or administrative support professional’s success lies in the chemistry they possess with the team or individual they are supporting. It’s our business to understand our client’s needs emphatically and to screen, select, and identify the most appropriate candidates that will be the best possible fit.

If this sounds like an approach that could work for you I’d love to hear from you. Get in touch via sayhello@executivepartnerships.co.uk or visit executivepartnerships.co.uk to find out more.

I’m a sucker for a quote, and there’s one that has consistently inspired me in life to be different, to take risks, and to offer something exceptional

‘Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity and imaginative vision against the play it safers. The slaves of the ordinary.’
