About Charlie McIntosh

Partnering with our clients to see better so they can hire better

Our team of in-house and associate resource is experienced in proactively sourcing talent, through a research led methodology to enable you to achieve your goals.

What we do

We source talent, we engage candidates and we introduce exceptional talent to our clients, supporting direct hiring strategies and delivering insight into talent landscapes.

Working as an extension to your existing in-house acquisition team we can provide instant resource for long or short term projects, depending on your senior hiring needs.

You get a reduced time and cost to hire, improved diversity, increased candidate engagement and greater employee retention. 

All of this for a fixed price, irrespective of how many hires are made, based on a day rate which is proven to reduce senior hiring costs by over 50%.

What we don’t do

  • We are not a recruitment agency.
  • We do not indiscriminately mass scrape online profiles.
  • We do not use databases of out of date candidates.
  • We do not charge fees based on a starting salary or number of hires.

How it works

Your requirements will change from day to day, we will enable you to react quickly – scaling capacity & capability specific to your needs

  • Resource bank– Purchase a bank of resource (days), which can be fed off and topped up as and when needed.

We do not charge any additional fees for candidate introductions, placements or market intelligence.
