People Insight.


We act on either ‘standard’ referencing projects or pre-hire ‘ business planning discussions’ with key individuals for key hires. Third party objectivity can lead to both unbiased information and a cleaner sense of the referees view of the combination of a particular individual with our client. We treat all reference calls with care, recognising that our approach to each referee will reflect on our client and the candidate in question – and that in many cases their sense of buy-in may directly enhance the business development prospects of the hire once on board.

How Can We Help You?

We Seek to Understand:

  • The position and influence of the referee
  • Their business and its future direction
  • Their relationship with the Candidate
  • Their views of the candidate across Market Reputation/Position, Personal/Professional Characteristics, Technical and Commercial Capabilities, Business Development, Management and Leadership.
  • Their perception of our client and the union.
  • The opportunities and challenges they see for the candidate in the new role
  • Their thoughts on integration recruitments
