Executive Search Solutions

The competition for world-class professionals is always fierce. At SpenglerFox we tailor our Executive Search activities to our client’s specific needs.

What we do

Executive Search Solutions

Our unique global network information system

That’s why more and more companies rely on us to find the exceptional people they need. With our globally networked ATS and CRM systems, we can keep track of senior executives wherever they are in the world. Our search is shaped and driven by each client’s specific needs.

The SpenglerFox Approach

Productive partnerships with our clients

Our Organisation

We are centred around our clients and our candidates. It is our mission to ensure that every client and candidate experience ends in a high level of satisfaction, no matter how complex their needs may be.

Our Expertise

We’re experts in sourcing the very best talent in and for global markets. We revel in the opportunity to explore and research new markets, assisting organisations to overcome the challenges and finding and growing the talent that will help them to succeed.

We're Specialists

Finding talent for hard to find and mission critical profiles is our specialty. Our researchers are second to none and will leave no stone unturned in the search of the perfect candidate with the most obscure but critical skills.

We're Independent

We are completely independent and wholly owned, allowing us to be totally agile. Our clients experience the same degree of service excellence regardless of their location. Our consultants are highly mobile and technologically enabled.

We're Believers

In local knowledge on a global scale. We operate a network of strategic hubs worldwide that allow us to cast our net deep into previously unexplored territories whilst retaining a stable base.

We're Ethical

We work hard to ensure that our professional ethics are adhered to at every level of our organisation. We believe that trust is at the heart of any successful engagement.

The SpenglerFox Methodology

Satisfaction of achieving the seemingly impossible

There is nothing we love more at SpenglerFox than the satisfaction of achieving the seemingly impossible, the satisfaction of completely fulfilling a client’s needs by finding the perfect candidate. Whilst we have the agility to move at speed we also have the endurance and determination that ensure constant focus on long term projects. Our in-depth processes allow us to build trust and long lasting relationships with our clients across the world.

The Spenglerfox Methodology

Our methodology has eight detailed and comprehensive phases as outlined below. Each phase is carried out with discretion, sensitivity and using the full resources and market insight at our disposal.


Project Ignition

Before engagement we anticipate the potential needs of a client and identify a dedicated project team. This ensures that we can commence our search immediately on assignment confirmation.

Following engagement, search methodologies are identified and a project plan and timescales are agreed with our client. All searches are managed by at least one dedicated researcher and specialist consultant. All searches are supervised by the local Country Manager and regional Practice Group Leader.



Our mission is to find talent. Whilst our primary focus is direct search which is carried out by our talented team of local and regional researchers, we also deploy a variety of secondary search methodologies. These include searching our industry leading database, networking in both the physical and virtual environments and news searches to name but a few.

Our philosophy of transparency and sharing information ensures full project visibility across our international practice group network. This gives us access to expatriate, repatriating and international candidates in real time.


Screening and Selection

Following the identification of the candidate longlist we initiate shortlisting through a detailed and comprehensive short- listing process. This commences with initial telephone interviews which assess a prospective candidate’s suitability for and interest in the position. Once this has been confirmed, candidates are subjected to in-depth one-to-one interviews with the project’s lead consultant.

The interview format is a combination of non-directive discussions to assess the candidate’s personality and communication skills, as well as competency based interviews.

Finally, unless otherwise directed by our clients, our preferred candidate undergoes psychological profiling in the form of the Saville Consulting psychometric testing. Following this rigorous assessment we select those candidates that we deem most suitable for the role and the client organisation based on competencies, experience and motivations and present the shortlist of candidates to our clients.


20-Day Project Audit

Quality assurance is fundamental to each search assignment we undertake. For this reason, we conduct an internal quality review 20 working days following the formal commencement of each executive search project. The results from the audit allow us to take corrective action, where necessary, during the early stages of the project to ensure that we do whatever it takes to meet our overall quality standards and client expectations.


Shortlist Presentation

The SpenglerFox shortlist presentation takes the form of a detailed assessment report, which contains information on the candidates’ personal, behavioural, academic and professional profiles, including a rationale in which we explain why the candidate should be considered for the role. We then review the shortlist with our clients and action any feedback received.


Client Interview

At SpenglerFox we consider it our duty to manage the shortlist of candidates through the client interview process. This ensures complete discretion and the minimum amount of disruption to our client’s organisations in what is often a sensitive process. Following interviews we will then review & discuss the performance of each candidate with our client.


Offers and Acceptance

SpenglerFox provide formal offers & rejections to candidates on behalf of our client. We support our client in the preparation and presentation of the offer to the successful candidate. This is then followed by discussions with both the client and the candidate.



Following acceptance of an offer, we work in partnership with our client and candidate to identify integration needs and plan the successful integration of the candidate into their new organisation. We also facilitate on-boarding where required.



We are absolutely committed to quality and as such it is imperative that we are able to gauge whether we have successfully met our clients’ and candidates’ needs. Consequently, after every placement we carry out in-depth service reviews with our clients. The feedback is then reviewed by an internal panel consisting of the Head of Quality Assurance, Regional Heads and Chief Executive Officer, to ensure maximum client satisfaction and promote a culture of continuous improvement.
