Finding the Best Leaders for Your Organisation


Why Leadership Matters

Finding the best candidates for Executive Leadership roles is often the most difficult. C-level, Director, or Head of Department roles are the key drivers behind the creation and execution of any organisation’s vision, mission, and strategy.

It is the leaders within these positions that create and enrich the culture of a company or institution, and that is why at GreatFind, we have a dedicated Executive Sourcing programme to find the best candidates for these roles.

Our Process

A Tried-and-Tested Methodology for Success

When an EdTech company, MSP or educational institution approaches us for support with finding someone to fill a leadership position, we employ our tried-and-tested methodology to ensure the candidates we present to them, are of the highest calibre.

The Executive Sourcing programme begins with an interview with the company or institution seeking the candidate. We seek to immerse ourselves with the vision and culture of the organisation, and pair this with the key competencies required, to form a template of what we will be looking for.

We then proceed to search the market for the specific skills and competencies required, whilst also mirroring the cultural fit required for the position in question. It is important to note that in this process, we do not simply search through LinkedIn for candidates “Open to Work”. We filter through anyone we believe could fit this role through a variety of mediums. This can result in direct headhunting, where we employ a soft approach to gauge the interest of the sector’s leading talent.

Why Choose GreatFind?


Our review process goes beyond a candidate’s online presence. We ensure we understand their personal drivers and goals and correlate this to our client, to ensure they match. Leadership roles are intended to be made fewer times than managerial or entry-level positions, and we ensure that any candidate that we recommend for interview, is fit-for-purpose and aligned culturally and in proficiency.

We know sometimes that hires don’t always go to plan, so for any candidate that does not pass probation, GreatFind will offer a replacement candidate at no additional cost.

GreatFind also offers a retained search model, where will work exclusively as an organisation’s recruitment partner of choice, and target ‘passive’ prospective candidates. This does typically extend the length of the search but will ensure candidates are of the calibre and capability the organisation is seeking.

Trusted by over 150 organisations, we have filled roles including Sales Directors, Directors of IT and Senior Managers. We also invest in leading tools to support this tailored approach.

GreatFind’s uniqueness is founded in our industry experience. Our team have worked in the Technology sector for over 35 years combined and have held positions similar to that which we seek for our clients. Therefore, we understand the criticality of getting these decisions right.

Innovation in IT

A key part of operating within the technology space, is remaining abreast of any technological advancements that will impact the way in which we work. The advent of AI/ML based tools and their implementation across various industries and sectors, has revolutionised and is continuing to revolutionise the way in which we all work. We take our time at GreatFind to thoroughly research and understand how we can support our clients through such transformational periods of change.
