Retained Search and Selection

Identifying the best leaders in the industry.

"Shirley Parsons took the time to understand our business model, before leading the executive search. They found two amazing candidates within months; compared to our internal search that took years."


Shirley Parsons has developed a one-of-a-kind executive assessment and selection process that can be tailored to the needs of our clients.


Gaining a thorough brief for a role is critical when searching for the top talent in the market, and we feel that the best way to guarantee this is by meeting face to face with senior stakeholders. We appreciate that every business has a unique culture and, in order to source appropriate candidates, we must understand the profile of people that have previously excelled within your organization.
If the details of a position are unknown, we will work collaboratively with you to draft a job specification based on your needs and the key business outcomes you would expect from a successful appointment.


Our vast global network enables companies to access the best senior talent that others cannot reach in timeframes that others cannot match. We uncover the talent pool relevant to an assignment through comprehensive industry mapping techniques, interrogating our executive referral networks and utilizing our associations with national and international EHS bodies. We are proactive in our approach, going beyond traditional primary resourcing methods. Our process identifies target companies and contacts, generating extensive industry and competitor benchmarking data.



All organizations require an effective senior leadership team and we understand the value of sourcing leaders with the appropriate skills to efficiently deliver your business strategy. Candidates undergo a rigorous pre-screening assessment, which includes an interview process customized towards the assignment brief.
We compile comprehensive profiles which are used to determine the best match for your organization based on cultural, leadership, performance, team and integration fit. Our search and selection process will reduce your time-to-hire and find you the specialized talent that is critical to drive your business forward.
