Insight Executive Group

Discover a radically different style of recruitment

What we do

We specialise in recruiting middle management and executive level positions across the following key niches:

  • Property and Asset Management
  • Facilities Management
  • Procurement
  • Commercial and Contract Management
  • Finance
  • Programme and Project Management

We can provide permanent or interim candidates and are renowned for our sensitive, yet highly effective, executive head hunting. Our experienced consultants also offer strategic help for organisations looking to plan new roles, refine current roles and structure departments.


Our approach

At Insight Executive Group (IEG) we pioneer an ethical and emotionally intelligent new way of recruiting. Motivated by long-term relationships over short-term sales objectives, our mature team can offer clients and candidates a more holistic service than mainstream recruiters. This transparent and considered way of working has enabled us to become trusted partners to some of the country’s largest private and public sector organisations, including government and the NHS.


How we work

We work collaboratively with our clients and candidates, talking honestly and openly to establish their needs before tailoring our services to suit. Crucially, we only ever source candidates from trusted network-based recommendations.

Our three like-minded founders; Nick, Richard and Gerry have over 40 years shared experience in the industry. United by a desire to put the ‘human’ into human resourcing, they established a business model that focuses on building meaningful long-term relationships with clients and candidates alike.
