The Network:

The passive network is a working process of tracking and talking to Key Senior Management and Board Level Executives. Our close relationship with a small number of chosen clients enables Buckley & Wallace Executive Search to source key talent from a very wide pool. No Chinese walls putting every Tom, Dick and Harriet off limits, therefore chancing the talent pool you can tap into when conducting a Search.

Buckley & Wallace Executive Search is constantly mapping management teams through researchers. We also organise events with industry bodies, clients and potential candidates.

The Consultants:

Each Buckley & Wallace Executive Search partner heads their market with knowledge of the sector they transact in. This gives you the benefits of a rapidly enhanced understanding as to your business requirements and the solutions provided.

Buckley & Wallace Executive Search has broken new ground in the Executive Search sector, typically delivering a shortlist in less than eight weeks for Board appointments, the industry average being around three months.
