Executive Search:

When you’re looking to fill a specialist senior position, you need a consultancy capable of delivering in an efficient and timely manner. At Highland Consulting we pride ourselves in helping companies find the ideal candidate to fill even the most difficult of roles.

Retainer Search Service:

Our clients retain us to find mid-level and senior-level candidates for a wide variety of functions within the industry. Since we thoroughly understand the industry, the business of our clients, their organization, and culture we are better prepared to perform our search assignments.

Our Solution Delivery Process:

Our team of industry specialist consultants deliver integrated, flexible and tailor-made solutions to address client requirements.

Client Consultation:

Critical to any Executive Search assignment is our assessment of technical competencies and cultural fit. This is achieved through a detailed client consultation to construct an ideal candidate profile. This meeting is followed by a written proposal ensuring a common understanding of the role and the candidate requirements. Once agreed the search is initiated.

Candidate Screening:

The next stage of the process involves research to identify candidates who fit the search criteria. These candidates are then screened in face to face meetings, including behavioral and competency based interview methodology. A short-list of qualified candidates is presented, and we then assist in facilitating interviews with selected candidates.


During the entire search process we keep our client’s informed on progress and on any issues which may arise. We manage the process taking the short listed candidates through initial and subsequent interviews with the client, and ultimately for the selected candidate to job offer. We also assist in securing the chosen candidate by completing reference checks to confirm background and competencies; ensuring that the selected candidate rejects any counteroffers; and resigns from their current employer and is ready to begin their new employment on the agreed start date.
