Retained Search & Selection

We understand that you may have requirements for commercially sensitive, senior or high priority roles, where full market coverage is required - often on an international scale.

You can trust LSP to ensure the highest possible calibre talent is identified, approached, attracted and engaged delicately on your behalf from C-suite Executives to Specialist Engineers.


Benefits of Retained Search

Quality over quantity

When there isn't a race against other agencies, more time can be taken to focus and find the highest quality candidates. From a Client perspective it also means one single point of contact rather than dealing with multiple recruiters all vying for attention

Whole market coverage

Often the right person for your role is the one who is already happy in their existing position. LSP will approach the whole of the market leaving no stone un-turned, confidentially for your business to free up the perfect candidate


Clients can go in to a high level of detail which are often very unique and be confident that a recruiter will go above and beyond to find the ideal applicant


Dedicated search team who focus 100% of their time on the assignment

Market Mapping

A market map is generated of all relevant professionals working in similar companies and roles in the industry


All candidates that have been approached initially will be vetted by a Senior Recruiter. Interested parties are then interviewed by a Principle Consultant or Director


A handful of candidates who fit skill, culture and any other niche requirements will be submitted to Clients so that the best fit can be chosen
