About Us

Executive search is about finding precisely the right person for that key senior executive position. Whether you are conducting a search to find a new Chairman, CEO, CFO, CTO or other senior leader, an executive search consultant’s real value is in understanding the clients’ needs and finding the right man or woman to fill the senior job in a way that truly fits the requirement.

Not Actively Looking can help you find that perfect candidate much faster. This not only saves you time and effort involved in calling inappropriate or uninterested candidates, but also ensures that you provide a timely and efficient solution to help solve your client’s critical business need.

At Not Actively Looking we have developed our own unique search algorithm to prioritise potential executive candidates in terms of the skills, experience, aspirations and remuneration expectations that you define. This will produce a list of potential executive candidates ranked in order of suitability. You will then be able to start calling the right people immediately, saving yourself time and, critically, solving the client’s problem faster.
