Ortolan Connect Executive

What is Ortolan Connect Executive?

Ortolan Connect Executive is our fixed fee recruitment service, helping businesses to recruit senior-management and director level roles. It is a myth that every senior role requires the use of an expensive executive search agency.

A traditional agency is likely to charge you 20% or more of a new executive’s salary as their fee. For example, a £20,000 fee for a £100,000 salary. It is not uncommon for an executive search firm to charge up to 33% of the annual package plus the cost of advertising.

With Ortolan Connect Executive, you pay a fixed fee of £1,200. Our clients include FTSE-listed companies, professional bodies and corporate enterprises.

We have established beyond doubt that effective advertising combined with skilled screening of applicants is an extremely effective method of recruiting for even the highest level executive roles. While there is a role for the dedicated executive search firm in this market place, it is always a pleasant surprise to see how many high-quality candidates can be identified using our quick, simple and cost-effective service.

We recommend that our clients try this first before committing to the considerable additional cost associated with a conventional recruitment or executive search agency. Our 10 years of experience placing senior-level managers in companies has resulted in a deep understanding of the technical and personal qualities that businesses require in their management teams and how to attract them.

In addition to attracting potential candidates through our widely-distributed and compelling advertising, we will actively search databases and professional online forums.
