As a people business, we focus on you the individual. Whether we have called you on a specific assignment or not, we guarantee you the following:
- We only deal at partner level. This absolute focus on the senior end of the market allows us superb access to law firm decision makers which means that we often know of strategic vacancies before other recruiters.
- Our market knowledge is the foundation upon which the business is built. We take our instructions from Managing Partners and Heads of Departments and our team has the breadth and experience to give you the best possible market intelligence.
- You will not be bombarded by inappropriate approaches from us.
- Any approach will come from an experienced consultant rather than a junior researcher.
- We will always be honest with you. We recognise the importance of confidentiality and we pride ourselves on our absolute discretion.
- We offer a consultative and collaborative approach. We work with you throughout the process and advise on business plan preparation, interview techniques, restrictive covenants and remuneration negotiations.
- We are long-termist in our approach. If you are settled in your current position, we are always happy to provide guidance on career progression and market trends.
- We are always available to talk to you outside of normal office hours and to meet you at a location of your choosing.
Deacon Search stood out from other firms as having the highest standards of professionalism and genuine expert knowledge of the market place. They guided and supported me through a demanding process with determination, reassurance and good humour.
I have worked very closely with Deacon Search and the service I received was excellent in every respect: thorough, carefully-considered, polite and efficient.
Deacons were friendly and professional and kept me well informed throughout the process. They struck me as people who think carefully about the potential match between their client firms and the individuals they approach on their behalf.
