What you say about us

  • Alternatives Elect have been true Executive Search partners to us. They bring their knowledge and understanding of the market, which is exceptional, but also the ability to quickly understand our business, what we need and how best to deliver the right solution whilst remaining cost efficient. The team work very closely with our business to ensure that they deliver professional and high quality service at all times. Our experience of them is that they are extremely thorough in their research and selection processes, ensuring that short listed candidates truly match the role in terms of fit, knowledge, experience and skills. In addition, candidates which have been appointed have provided very positive feedback in relation to how they feel they have been managed by the team. We would have no hesitation in recommending Alternatives Elect for their level of professionalism, tenacity and high performance.

    Alternatives Elect have been true Executive Search partners to us

  • I was impressed by Alternatives Group ability to map the market to identify the most suitable senior candidates for my requirements, to advise and challenge me in relation to candidates and to professionally manage the whole process to successful conclusion. I felt that they understood my needs and we worked together as partners throughout the process.

    They advised and challenged me

  • We worked with Alternatives Elect to source a senior Strategy role on a truly global basis. This was a tough search process with a very exacting brief. We needed a partner with genuine international reach and an ability to convey our value proposition in a highly effective manner. Adrian was able to deliver against those requirements and was a pleasure to work with. He found us a select group of highly targeted candidates and we are delighted to have made a successful hire.

    We needed a partner with genuine international reach

  • In late 2017 Fáilte Ireland procured the services of Alternatives to recruit a Marketing Director. We found the experience to be a very positive one. The team in Alternatives worked to anticipate our needs, and brought a deep understanding of the marketing arena to bear on the process. Their professional approach and support throughout the process from both an organisation and candidate perspective brought a confidence to the whole engagement.  I would have no hesitation in engaging the team in the future.
