executive search

CSE is the executive search division of createselect, working globally across the creative sectors, with offices presently in New York and London.

Taking time to understand both client and candidate requirements is at the core of the createselect approach thus allowing us the opportunity to create a real point of differentiation in a competitive market. Our philosophy is to provide high quality, skilled and motivated individuals to businesses across the creative sector.

Why executive search?

CSE offers unparalleled candidate access in the creative sector. Our clients can rely totally on our discretion and on our promise to act with confidentiality at all times. We offer a bespoke and wholly personal service that is attuned to your needs and offers an external perspective. We will spend time with you to make sure we have a clear understanding of the role. We familiarise ourselves with the company, its strategy, problems, culture and people, and the characteristics and skills the successful candidate should possess.

Typically at the senior level there is a smaller pool of appropriate, high calibre candidates who can be identified and targeted: the benefit of search is that these people can be targeted whether or not they are looking to move. Our track record speaks for itself as we have extensive knowledge of, and access to, the creative sector and candidate population.

The search begins with your brief. We present a list of high-quality candidates within the first few weeks of formal engagement. This list is then refined after interviews with candidates, following which CSE would present the final list. The client will then select candidates from the list for interview. We will update you regularly on progress.

We then approach prospective candidates seeking to develop their interest in the role. We interview and evaluate candidates. Then those who most closely fit your requirements and have an interest in the opportunity, are then presented. We will then work closely with you, and the candidates as they move towards the offer stage to facilitate negotiations.
