Recruitment

Recruitment is one of the main preoccupations of CEOs and managers. A business may fail as a direct result of the wrong people being in place and key strategies not being implemented. Steele-Dixon provides an additional specialist resource to ensure that high calibre recruitment is carried out successfully, cost-effectively and to realistic time-scales. We pride ourselves on our ability to match the right person to the right role, across the UK and international markets.

Recruitment works when client and candidate relationships are built on trust, ability, mutual understanding and respect. This means honest feedback, really listening, knowing when to push and when to hold back. It also requires the recruiter to be realistic about what they can deliver; we will never over promise and our unique history has taught us our strengths. We are passionate about our business, committed to excellence and we will listen to and focus on your requirements.

Executive

We have been conducting Executive and Confidential Search within the motor industry since we started back in 1961.

We work with many premium automotive brands, engaging with them to understand the specific recruitment support required. We fully understand that no two brands are the same and we believe our service must reflect the company we are recruiting for. This could not be more relevant than to Executive Search and our service will always echo a clients’ specific needs; we are in effect an extension of your brand whilst we conduct the search. Crucially for this process, confidentiality and ethics are fundamental to our business. Many candidates and clients do not want to reveal their identity during the early stages of selection. We pride ourselves on our discretion and the confidentiality of the search process which is applicable to both clients and candidates alike.

In short, we leave no stone left unturned in our search for the right candidate. This requires a close partnership between the client and us. We make use of all our resources but will also go out into the market to locate the best person for the role; someone who may not already be known to us. We will provide full interview reports, career histories and overall assessments for each candidate (including personality profiling if necessary) and all candidates will be evaluated against the brief. We will remain heavily involved right up until the successful candidate starts in their new position.

If you would like to discuss an Executive Search vacancy or simply want to find out more about how we can help, please pick up the phone and speak with Ed Steele on 01235 536 440.
