How we find the right hire for your team

A Proven Search Process

South End Partners uses the best AI and behaviour assessment tools in the industry to help clients hire objectively and effectively. It’s what differentiates our team and approach. It's what makes us a true hiring partner for our clients.

Better Candidate Screening

Most recruiters screen based only on experience, and deliver candidates using subjective processes. We do things better. We use data insights to align values, behaviours and skills.

A Bespoke Approach

Not every search is the same so why do most recruiters use a cookie cutter process? Our tailored approach to each search helps us build long term partnerships with our clients and leads to the best results, every time.

Our Expert Team

We are experts in recruitment and people. We are also business leaders who understand your industry and market trends. We are dedicated and passionate about disrupting the status quo and being your HR partner every step of the way.

Why our proprietary recruitment process works

We remove subjectivity from the hiring process, and help you find the right leader for the right opportunity.

We screen candidates for:

Values

Do they believe in the core mission of your organization? Are they driven by the same goals? How will they impact your team?

Cognitive and behavioural attributes

Will they succeed in the role? What drives and motivates them? How do they deal with stress? Are they capable of driving change?

Experience

How have they achieved results? Can they prove it? How do they learn and do they continue to develop their skills to be leaders of tomorrow?

We deliver results, every time

We find the right hire, faster

Our process involves quickly understanding your organization and the ideal candidate for the role. Our screening approach means you only see the best of the best and can hire, quicker.

A successful hire

Our clients hire leaders who immerse into their organization’s culture quickly, easily and focus on driving change and building high performing teams.
