Do you have a critical hiring need within your HR team?
We have a network of hr professionals and business executives who can vouch for our service quality.
Our company's in house search team had worked this role for 6 months. I had countless names to consider and CV’s to look at. I conducted over 34 first stage interviews and only progressed 2 of those, and we still didn’t have the right person. I was at risk of losing the budget for the head count, despite the burden on me and my team of not having this extra person. I was even thinking to downgrade the role as a "make do". Finally I took up the recommendation of a peer, and contacted Carter Morris. I don’t know how they did it, but they gave me a shortlist of 4 exceptional people in under 10 days from taking the brief. We secured one of these people in under 4 weeks from commencing the process. Exceptional service and communication all the way through - it was like they were my very own search staff, and what a relief to me, my team, and the business leaders we support to have filled the role.

We had this role retained with a big name search firm for 5 months. They recommended so many people to us, and after wading through their many lists, we narrowed it down to just 4 names. We got to have an initial discussion with only 3, because the 4th apparently changed their mind. We wanted to meet all 3 again, but none were available – we’re still not sure why. We’d paid 2/3rds of the agency's total fee, and were back to square one. They were telling us that the hire was difficult because our expectations were impossible. I was venting to an industry peer and he recommended I speak with Carter Morris. Magically they came up with 3 exceptional people, fully screened and qualified, in just 14 days from taking the brief. We could have hired all of them. We secured our new HRD, in record time, and within our budget, and she’s proved to be a brilliant hire.

Our company's internal search team had worked these roles for over 6 months and I'd spoken to plenty of candidates, but none of the calibre I wanted. It was killing me to have the roles vacant – I was getting pressure from my team and from business leaders, and it was stopping us from meeting our strategic objectives. I was at a complete loss until a network peer introduced me to Carter Morris. They gave me 3 brilliant people for each job, and did it in under 15 days from our first meeting. Just the quality of the CV’s alone compared to the many that I’d looked at previously showed me that Carter Morris really knew the specialisms being hired for. It was actually a pleasure to interview these candidates and we could have hired every one of them. We had one tricky package negotiation to get through but Carter Morris achieved a successful result for all parties, and the new hires have integrated beautifully.

This hire as you know had been open for many months - my own recruitment team had struggled to source the niche skills required and local search firms were unable to deliver the calibre we were really seeking. We knew it was always going to be a challenge given the work base location and the salary budget we were working to but we were starting to think it was an impossible hire and we'd need to change our expectations completely. It was a great pleasure to work with you. Your deep understanding of our needs, and your constant readiness to move things forward are really extraordinary. Always on top, always ready and on time. And furthermore - all candidates that you recommended were so very clearly selected with full professionalism and matching best standard. We are really delighted on all profiles you shared with us and thrilled to achieve such a great hiring result; and so quickly.

I keep using Carter Morris because they find the right people with no fuss, and they save me so much time. They’re well connected across the HR profession, so they can find great people and fast. I also know they do so much leg work before they make any recommendation to me, which means I only get to meet the people I will want to hire - people who are technically skilled and culturally compatible, and they’ve been fully qualified so I don’t get any surprises. On the rare occasions we have needed to conduct package negotiations, I always feel like Carter Morris have my best interests at heart. They communicate with integrity and delicacy so I never feel like I’m being held to ransom, and I know from the hires I’ve made, that those people feel like they’ve gotten a fair deal too.

We hired for a similar position 2 years ago. We used a big name firm, and 54 candidates and 4 months later, we still hadn’t found the right fit, and would up effecting an internal transfer at a lower job level. I wasn’t looking forward to undertaking this type of hire again. We stumbled onto Carter Morris – one of my team had dealt with them as a candidate some years before and remembered being particularly impressed by them. They delivered people ready for me to meet within 15 days – amazing. Just as we were getting our chosen person in for final interview we had significant changes in the business, and the role remit needed to be reworked. Back to the drawing board for Carter Morris, and they delivered another batch of really impressive people, this time in just 10 days. We’ve made the hire, the person is working out really well, and I’m just so happy to not have this dragging out.
