In-House Head Hunting Consultants

Welcome to Alastair Ames Consultancy. We work closely with UK businesses to provide consultancy and project management services that support both recruitment and ‘search and selection’ activities at senior level. We spent 32 years as recruitment and search and selection consultants before evolving and transforming our business into what we believe suits the demands and requirements of the market place today. We now no longer source candidates directly but work closely with companies who have embraced the digital candidate sourcing route and need to run traditional and highly experienced methodology alongside it.

We are able to offer unbiased and purely objective input into a recruitment process utilising expertise that has been gained over 30 years in the business. The assignments we undertake often measure internal candidates against external candidates and our external input views all options in a totally objective manner. We work closely with senior management and HR teams within businesses of all sizes and at all stages of the process. We are able to tailor our services and input around each individual project and are used to working within tight time constraints.

We strive to keep costs to a minimum and charge by the day and even by the hour when required.
