WHEN IT'S TOO IMPORTANT TO NOT GET RIGHT.

FIRST TIME.

SHARED DESTINY.

It can’t be overstated how important it is to source effective leadership. Organisational success relies upon leaders who can devise, develop and execute against a vision and associated strategies.

Our executive search capability is designed to partner with you to identify, engage and on-board inspirational individuals for those roles where it’s too important not to get right. First time.

I set Macildowie a tough challenge - needing a high calibre individual with a unique set of skills, in tight timescales, to help our rapidly-growing business and they delivered.
- Geoff Love, CEO - Commify

What We Do.

We are proud to be one of very few agencies to have an executive search function based in the Midlands with a sole geographical focus on the Midlands. Why is that important in your decision making process?

1. We know the local economy, we’ve been helping customers here for the last 25 years - we will know where your next critical hire works.
2. Whilst we will consider candidates looking to relocate, the risk associated with candidates needing to move is exponentially higher than those in the Midlands and surrounds.

Our vetting process is extremely robust. We utilise a multi-layered vetting methodology that matches your requirements against sector, technical, behavioural and motivational fit. This multi-faceted approach will be tailored to your requirements and is a tried and tested way to identify, engage and on-board the very best talent for you.

Executive Search.

Effective leadership is critical for a business to thrive. Attracting and retaining the best leadership talent for your business is therefore also critical if you are to define and drive corporate strategy, employee engagement and customer cohesion. Our unique vetting methodology is the cornerstone of our ability to find you this talent.

Senior Management Search.

Using the methodologies we use to secure executive talent, we are in a superb position to identify, engage with and secure talent for your senior management team. Whether it is a Head of Department, Regional VP, Country Manager or Department leader, we are able to find those critical individuals who can connect the Board with the rest of your organisations talent.

Interim Support.

Sometimes you need to look outside of your organisation for niche skills, fresh perspective or simply greater capability. Whether it is change management, project delivery, ramp up for investment, acute problem solving, market exploitation or any other reason for hiring extra firepower, our networks are incredibly strong when it comes to securing such talent.

Leadership Development.

CEOs need to surround themselves with the best talent if they are to thrive. A leadership team armed with the right mix of experience, competencies and motivation can be unstoppable. At Macildowie Executive Search we have cultivated relationships with individuals who specialise in upskilling leaders in their ability to inspire, engage, strategise, collaborate and deliver against objectives.

Market Intelligence.

Sometimes you could really use meaningful and up to date staffing data. Whether you want line of sight on executive or leadership remuneration, employee rewards and bonus mechanisms, talent mapping, sector trends or competitor analysis we can deliver reports and analytics tailored to your requirements.

Non-Executive Directors.

There are many benefits to hiring a Non-Exec Director. We have developed over the years a comprehensive NED Network and as such are uniquely positioned for those businesses looking to hire NED talent.

Strategic Solutions.

There are occasions where you hit a talent speedbump and you need to act fast. For those occasions where you need a neutral third party to help advise or create a solution, then consider using Macildowie Executive Search. Example consultations have included coronavirus response, diversity and inclusion, gender pay gap, M&A activity, digital transformation or outplacement services.

Our Team.

Our networks are borne from years of senior level appointments in both local and international markets, giving us access to top talent pools and valuable market insights. Our experts can advise on all stages of the recruitment process from attraction to retention and employer brand to salary benchmarking.

  • 'Macildowie has invested the time, to know me, understand my core values, moreover they understand our business here at Woodway UK, and the exciting journey we are on. It has been a great time saver only seeing and speaking about meaningful candidates that could really complement our business and its growth plans. I really appreciate the approach they take to recruitment and am excited about the next candidate they introduce to me.'
    - Clare Cohring, Procurement Director - Woodway Packaging
  • 'Macildowie kept in contact with me throughout the process of recruitment so I knew what was happening. Providing excellent interview guidance, notes and preparation, which I found very useful, they also gave me feedback after every stage. I was fortunate enough to be selected for the position and they have made sure that everything was OK and kept in contact. I would more than happily recommend Macildowie.'

  • 'The team at Macildowie took time and made the effort to really understand what our needs when we were recruiting for our FD. It was a nice change to have candidates appropriate to our requirements rather than simply the job title. From the top down, the Mac’s ethos of a greater understanding of the business needs makes recruiting so much easier.'
