Commodities is RefinedSearch’s core strength. Commodities is a globally understood language and a global market. From our London base, RefinedSearch covers the world.

Since our beginnings in 2013, we have successfully completed mandates in South America, North America, Europe and Mainland China.

To supplement our growth and further cement our excellent track record in Asia, RefinedSearch will be opening a permanent base in Singapore in Q3 2018.

We work with clients to agree the most suitable approach to each project. Whatever the approach, if you commit to us, we commit to you, resulting in lower costs, guaranteed success, and a fruitful and rewarding partnership.

Retained Executive Search

Our most common approach to mandates. This gives you guaranteed results, speed and full market coverage.

Retained Search with full market reporting

Our standard Retained Executive Search product comprehensively maps companies when working on retained mandates. We find that this is usually more than enough detail for our clients. Cutting down on costly, and often unnecessary, full market reports allows us to work to more competitive rates and deliver more quickly.

However, if you wish to receive a full market report as part of the search process this is something RefinedSearch can happily deliver.

Advertised & targeted search

Our new Advertised and Targeted Search product is designed for clients who want the expertise of a specialist search firm but don’t want a search process – for instance when placing junior, operations and support roles. It’s also ideal for clients who want to advertise for candidates but don’t want to manage the sheer volume of respondents and its associated screening and administration.

This product helps clients identify “active candidates”, who are typically easier and more cost effective to attract and hire, and reduces recruitment spend by up to 58% when compared to a typical search fee. We use advertising along with our comprehensive database, to identify suitable applicants including those who haven’t responded to advertising.

RefinedSearch is the only search firm offering such a comprehensive recruitment product at such a reasonable cost.

Named Search

A Named Search allows us to target specific individuals that you have identified. Specifically at times when it helps to have a third party in the middle of a transaction, such as:

  • Contractual reasons
  • Candidates are generally more revealing to a third party rather than their potential future employers
  • Keeping your company name out of the market

To ensure a difficult transaction is closed with both sides still bullish about working together in the future RefinedSearch is an expert at closing transactions, as well as uncovering and overcoming any hurdles that arise along the way. We help clients close the biggest and the best in the market for a flat fee of £10,000, no matter the size of the package you pay for the individual.

Additional Services

RefinedSearch can also assist you with any other human resources services, such as Market Research and Analysis, New Market and Geographic Entry Assistance and Compensation Analysis and Benchmarking.
