Executive Recruitment or Headhunting

Working with you on a retained basis we will source candidates who are in many cases not active in the recruitment arena. Not only will we source these candidates but will conduct the first interviews, (specifically for your position) obtain references (if desired) and help you throughout the hiring process. You will instruct us on an exclusive basis to conduct the entire recruitment effort from beginning to end. Whilst Executive Search is often used for higher level positions, it is increasingly being used to help recruit hard-to-find staff.

Contingency Based Recruitment

After discussing the full job and person requirements, we will source candidates from our existing database, public job boards and candidate referrals.This is often used for junior/middle management positions. In this sort of search, we would have interviewed the candidates but in many cases not specifically for your opportunity. Your vacancy will be discussed at length over the telephone and our shortlist of CV’s will be submitted, leaving it up to you to conduct the first interviews, establish a final shortlist, get references and make the final selection.

Advertising Based Recruitment

With this recruitment method we will place an advertisement in the appropriate trade journal and/or online media in order to attract those candidates that are currently actively looking for positions. We will make a pre-selection of candidates, conduct preliminary interviews and present you with the final shortlist of candidates.

What Our Clients Say


Managing Director

“We recently used Debbie Burbage Recruitment to facilitate us in finding a Financial Controller. It was a new role within our company, Debbie was able to offer guidance and support in finding the right person.

We were sent 4 CVs, we interviewed all of them and, if I’m entirely honest, it was a tough call between all 4. Unlike the 6 candidates we’d seen prior, with a very sales driven recruitment agency, who did not seem to grasp our company and values.

Debbie took the time to understand who we were as a company and as a direct result of that found us an outstanding candidate who has made a significant impact on our business in the short time she has been with us.

We appreciated Debbie’s honesty, she was clear that if she didn’t feel she could find us a suitable candidate she would not have taken on our campaign. She made the whole process so easy and her team in the office also always knew where we were in the recruitment process, which also instilled confidence.”
