The value you should receive when retaining a head hunter is having someone working exclusively for you as an extension of your business. A good head hunter should be tenacious enough to persevere, but commercial enough to realise when they need to preserve your brand and the clients you represent. Put simply, once retained, your interests should be paramount.

Edwards Gibson selectively undertakes a small number of retained searches. Our Directors Sloane Poulton and Scott Gibson personally undertake all of our search assignments. Between them they have over 40 years of experience and are amongst the most respected legal recruiters in the market. Their success in brokering large team moves in the London market is second to none.

Edwards Gibson will only undertake a search if we feel we can complete the assignment. This, combined with capacity restraints, means that we turn down far more retained searches than we undertake. Our conscious decision to limit the number of search assignments we undertake means that, when we accept an assignment, we are able to provide our clients with unrivalled commitment and market insight.
