“Our success has really been based on partnership from the very beginning”
Bill Gates

Our Ethos

We enjoy…

                             …what we do.

We work hard to succeed, but we are not a ‘sweatshop’.  Our consultants are under no pressure to encourage bad decisions.  We treat everyone as an adult, and we are proud to be different.

We work…

                         …with honesty and integrity at all times.

The truth is at our core. We won’t hide anything in our fees or be dishonest about remuneration. Poaching candidates from our clients is disciplinary. iQi access all candidates before submission and send their original CV’s. Candidates always get a response, good or bad. We only advertise real roles. CV’s only sent prior consent.

We stand…

                        …by what we do.

We believe in what we do and know we work every assignment harder than anybody else. We won’t sell you a process. iQi Recruit gives you success. We trust in what we do so we can offer a free replacement guarantee for our executive service of up to 12 months.

We believe…

                       …in what we offer.

Competitive fees, we are never the most expensive or reassuringly the cheapest. However, we will always be upfront and honest. We provide a fully comprehensive search and give two clear options.

What we do

We find and place critical managers and executives. These are the people that CEO’s and business owners identify as crucial to the day to day operations of their businesses.

We can reach many that are unavailable to other recruiters. We can do this as we build our business on trust and honesty. iQi Recruit is ferocious about ensuring we achieve the highest standards in all that we do, for candidates and clients.

For our clients we offer two recruitment services dependent upon their needs;

Contingent Search

Our primary offer, quality is always essential, but due to urgency, flexibility is required.

We use our existing contacts to source your key managers and executives with the right skills you need right now.

Executive Search

Our opportunity to ensure that we find the right person without any compromise.

A more sophisticated process which gives you access to more candidates on an exclusive basis – an uncompromising full search suite with a specified timeframe and search profile.  

Usually has a premium invoice attached.  Not the iQi way.  We offer this service at the same rate as our contingent search, we restructure the fee and back it up with one-year free replacement.

My model for business is The Beatles. They balanced each other and the total was greater than the sum of the parts.”  Steve Jobs

Our offer

We are entirely flexible in our approach, but we operate two routes to success, and dependent upon your needs, we will be happy to advise on the most appropriate and suitable offer.
