We understand that finding senior talent that is capable of successfully navigating today’s constantly evolving business landscape is challenging. HawkerChase is an executive search consultancy, placing C-suite and director-level candidates within the global defence, cyber, manufacturing and engineering sectors.
Through our broad range of executive solutions, we help organisations to mitigate risk, increase retention, and reduce the cost and time of making critical hires in their leadership and senior management teams.
Our consultants partner with clients on a consultative, project basis to deliver strategic solutions specific to their needs.
With a depth of market access and knowledge developed through our diverse global networks, we give our clients true market insight and access to the best talent in complex and fast-moving markets.
We work closely with clients on senior executive and non-executive appointments, supporting single hires, succession planning, teams, change management, growth strategies and business introductions across cyber, defence, engineering and manufacturing.
Traditional executive search methodology does not meet the needs of today’s fast growing, ambitious businesses.
Our three-stage process is designed to alleviate the risk associated with hiring leaders and senior managers. We use cutting edge technology and behavioural profiling to reduce the cost and time of hiring whilst increasing retention and the return on your investment.
Utilising our unique, agile talent solution, HC Connect, we are able to identify, entice, evaluate and on-board the best possible talent in the market to give you a competitive advantage.
Where traditional search is engaged on a reactive basis Hawker Chase looks to provide clients with a more strategic and proactive approach to senior hiring assessing future needs and building proactive solutions to minimise business risk.
In the course of our business we often come across interesting individuals and smaller companies that can complement our existing client’s activities. Where this occurs we can effect corporate and personal introductions which often result in JVs or even acquisitions.
Our deep sector expertise gives us unrivalled access to the best interim Managers in the market.
Whether you have a crucial gap in your leadership team, you are running a change and transformation project or have a challenge in your company that needs an experienced resource to solve, HawkerChase can provide you with an individual or team on a flexible contract basis.
Corporate & Market Intelligence underpins everything we do, combining detailed mapping with analysis and context to ensure our clients are equipped to make informed decisions.
We offer clients executive coaching and assessment services through our partner companies either as a standalone service or in conjunction with our executive search process, assessing final candidates and even providing ‘First 90 days’ executive coaching support post hire.
