What We Do

Put simply, we find talent that is beyond the reach of others.

Generally speaking, we target high-potential talent from top tier / blue chip businesses, allowing smaller, growing companies to benefit from the professionalism, grounding and training they have usually received. These candidates then have the ability to excel and flourish in the typically less bureaucratic culture of a smaller company, allowing them to utilise the experience they have gained. Our thorough screening process ensures we connect with the specific talent you require. Whether it’s a Sales Director who can open doors in Europe, a Marketing Director with top tier soft drinks experience or a Head of Licensing with Soft Lines experience in the Toy industry, we deliver to your exacting requirements. If needed, we can also offer psychometric testing as part of the package, for added peace of mind.

You may expect this approach to be very expensive, but our fee structure is in line with those recruiters who rely on traditional advertising.

We act as an ambassador for your business, fully understanding your USPs and culture to engage candidates at an early stage.

We are passionate about the candidate experience, so we make sure that this engagement piece is managed really effectively throughout.

Take a look at the infographic below which explains why we never advertise.

20 percent

Typically around 20% of individuals in an organisation are actively seeking a new position…

…therefore are registering with employment agencies, uploading their CV’s to job boards and looking at job adverts. You have to ask yourself why. Are they not hitting targets? Not fitting in with their team and getting on with colleagues? Not progressing? These are the individuals you are most likely to attract when advertising your vacancy or using a typical recruitment agency.

However… Around 15% of individuals are hitting or exceeding targets, happily progressing and are being well rewarded.

These individuals may not have the inclination, or perhaps the time, to scroll through industry magazines or job boards as they are ‘not actively looking’. These however are arguably the ‘Top Dog’ in their team. It takes a totally different approach to identify, reach out to and attract this talent. At Top Dog Executive, we seek out these individuals. We have the skills necessary to engage and excite them about a new – and quite often a more challenging opportunity. We therefore work much more closely with candidates and coach them through the whole process – including managing the dreaded counter offer!

15 percent
65 percent

And the rest…

There’s nothing particularly wrong with them, they do their job pretty well, just not at the top of their game. They may respond to adverts and, if so, will probably be the best of that bunch. However, we’re pretty sure you’re here to find the best out there!
