Ensuring that an organisation has access to the best person possible for the job is the central philosophy behind Pluri Consultants’ executive search practice. Its job is both finding them, and then being able to identify what it is that makes them the leaders in their field, and the best placed to succeed.

More than just advertising and networking, our job is to map out labour markets, and systematically to identify all individuals in target companies, within an industry, or in related industries who could potentially succeed in the role.

Through the use of a variety of assessment tools, our skill lies in working with clients to understand the merits and concerns of each potential candidate, until detailed and objective conclusions can be reached.

The more objective the information we can provide our clients, on how and where we have searched, who we have spoken to, and why specific candidates should be considered, the clearer their decision-making process becomes.

The better the information we provide, the better we can mitigate the risks associated with the hiring decision.

Energy & utilities >>
