We know professional services because we are professional services!
Our senior management team is professionally qualified in our respective sectors (qualified lawyer and accountants), in combination with extensive experience in global advisory firms.
We consider recruitment to be the same as any other professional service when delivered correctly - consultative, expert-led and value-add. Our unique mix of expertise allows us to give our clients the superior level of professional service they should expect from their search partner.
We Understand You
It’s simple - we can’t provide our clients with the talent they need for their organisation if we don’t understand what that talent, and the relevant professional environment, looks like.
Here, we have a distinct advantage - we have first-hand knowledge of these specific environments, how they operate and the candidates who typically work well in each one.
Armed with this unparalleled insight, we work closely with you to gain an in-depth understanding of your organisation, culture, team and your specific requirements - and deliver accordingly.
Ultimately, people buy from people and no more so than in recruitment, particularly in the current candidate-driven market.
Strong professional services candidates want to work with a recruiter who understands them, their professional world, their career path and the relevant marketplace. Our global talent network actively engages with us based on our own backgrounds and unrivalled reputation.
We further invest in technology-driven, enhanced search capabilities to maximise our talent reach and engagement capabilities. More importantly, this investment allows us more time to focus on what we do best - securing the best talent for your organisation.
Relationship vs Transaction
Our focus is not on any short-term transaction - it’s on the long-term relationship.
Every call to us might not be about a potential hire and we understand that. You might need market salary information approaching performance review time, or you might want to know the market standard approach to a particular policy.
We are here to give you the expert assistance you need, when you need it. And when you do need to hire, we trust that our relationship is such that you’ll call us when the time is right.
But don’t just take our word for it! See what our clients say about their experience working with Phoenix.
