"Mediocrity knows nothing higher than itself, but talent instantly recognizes genius."
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

How does any individual or business articulate 'better'?

In an industry where everyone claims they can do everything better, with more insight, more integrity, more robust methodology and better results, it is perhaps impossible to prove how one business can do a 'better' job than another through claims alone.

Atticus Partnership vehemently believes that we do operate with genuine insight, total integrity, robust methodology and a results focus that means we consistently delight our clients

If not better how about different?

We feel a number of factors make us inherently different:

  • Genuine partnership through shared goals, shared ethos and shared responsibility - we will only enter into relationships where we are perceived and treated as a true partner with your business
  • Our Fees. We do not believe that a percentage of a candidate's ultimate remuneration should dictate the value of the fee, our fees are therefore:
    • Bespoke and based on the specific nature, scope and resources required to successfully complete the search
    • Fixed from the outset, allowing accurate budgeting and no surprises at the end (for both parties)
    • We typically don't charge for assignment related 'expenses'
  • In terms of your Employer Brand, we understand and take seriously the privileged position of partnering with your business and effectively operating as your voice/ambassador within the market
  • Excellence in everything we do
  • Strict and unfaltering Off Limits policy - We partner with you, we do not search within you - If you are ever told by your retained executive search firm that they are experts in your sector, supported by an impressive and comprehensive client list within your space, then this surely doubles as a list of businesses they can't search within
  • We deliver true executive search (fresh and original search) and do not rely solely on an extensive database of 'on the market' candidates
  • We strongly believe in Corporate & Social Responsibility:
    • Environmental issues are a priority at Atticus Partnership. We are developing a carbon neutral strategy to offset emissions arising from our daily business activities (incl. consultant and candidate travel)
    • We also ensure that race, gender, disability, ethnicity and age will play no part in our selection criteria

Allow us to bring these claims to life

In reality the only way we can bring any of these claims to life is through demonstration, as a potential client the opportunity for us to demonstrate this is within your gift.
