EO is an international professional services company delivering Interim Management and Executive Search to a broad range of clients in a wide range of industries and disciplines.
Founded in 2000 and privately owned, we are a respected trusted advisor to our clients, with a track record of successful projects that have developed into long term relationships.
We believe that many traditional recruitment practices have become outdated and unable to keep up with the challenges of a changing social demographic and an increasing worldwide talent shortage.
At EO, our mission is to enhance the recruitment process of our clients through the combination of experienced, specialised recruitment consultants and innovative technologies, that when used together has ensured 96% of our permanent executive placements have stayed a minimum of 12 months. We're so confident of our abilities to deliver the right person for the role, that all of our hires made through our executive search process are backed by an industry leading 12-month guarantee.
Part of the problem with most traditional recruitment search practices is their transactional approach to candidates. When a candidate is approached about a potential role for your business it’s on behalf of your business, any bad experiences within that process will create a negative brand impression for your business. This is often in the form of recruiters being unresponsive about roles, refusing to talk to candidates, not keeping candidates updated about the process and not informing candidates if they aren’t successful after they apply. All of this leaves a lasting negative impression of the experience, which is unfairly associated with the clients brand, even though the client is often completely unaware that candidates are being handled in this way.
It’s because of this that we are extremely brand conscious when we go to market on behalf of our clients, helping them to create and communicate their employee value proposition (EVP) while committing to regret every unsuccessful candidate.
We also write and distribute content through blogs, videos, webinars and ebooks that help candidate’s progress in their career, find their next role and transition into a new job. Strategically this makes sense for our business, as we have found that by offering free value and a professional service throughout the recruitment process the best candidates want to be associated with us.
EO has a global presence with 85+ consultants based in 22 offices across 6 countries giving us access to the best local and international talent.
