New advisory firm to help corporates build in house executive search functions launched

A new advisory firm designed to help hiring organisations build their own high performing in house executive search functions has been launched by ALC, the global human capital consultancy for the executive search industry. The firm is part of a portfolio of brands which includes executive search to search and executive assessment solutions.

“There has been a definite trend over the last few years towards hiring organisations building their own in house executive search functions in order to achieve substantial cost savings”, says Founder Tim Connolly. “The challenge though is setting the right strategy and then deploying the operation to underpin such a strategy. Unfortunately, many organisations have made the mistakes of passing executive search roles to overworked low to mid-level resourcing functions; not having a board level stakeholder; rewarding in house consultants the same way as other functions and not investing in the right systems.”

ALC, believes that with over 16 years’ experience in the executive search sector, a global network of experienced executive search talent and first-hand experience of setting up and running executive search functions across sectors, geographies and cultures, it is an ideal position to provide not only the talent needed but also the expertise and advice necessary to ensure that the function flourishes.

The firm is currently forming an advisory board which already includes James Gardner, former executive search lead at Dixons Carphone and Ben Barratt who formerly led and developed Alexander Mann’s executive talent solutions business within financial services and is now Director of TMC Search

“We always knew that this golden access to talent could well be dynamite for hiring organisations looking to achieve cost savings and efficiencies. But it’s not just about the talent – it’s about building a high performing function which leverages an organisation’s brand, culture and values. Our global associate network now numbers over 100 and we have a strong team who have undertaken this sort of advisory work before – and who have themselves been heads of executive search - and so we are well equipped to be pioneers in this market.”
