“The most successful searches we undertake are where we have a close working relationship with the client but there is no doubt that the quality of the brief is critical and arms us well to successfully target the most appropriate talent”
“The ‘war for talent’ and the increasingly competitive landscape for recruiting and retaining talented senior executives means that executive search firms must bring innovation and fresh thinking to every assignment.”
“Test Understanding and matching the career drivers and capabilities of executive talent with the business needs and aspirations of enterprises is core to search excellence.”
“The one single thing that best lifts performance is effective leadership. Our passion is to help clients identify, assess, place and assimilate excellent leaders.”
“Modern Executive Search is more than merely a professional sequence of events. Industry comprehension, multiple sourcing, accountable reputational assessment, conviction of recommendation – all must be leveraged cogently and simultaneously.”

“Executive level interim management is a rapidly growing phenomenon and is becoming recognised as an effective leadership tool in Australia. We combine a specialist understanding of the interim market with Watermark’s long established networks”.
“Australian businesses are increasingly competing not only across Asia Pacific, but well into the international arena. Executive search firms must keep a global perspective to be able to identify the best talent even for distinctive local requirements.”
“Interim managers get up to speed quickly given their wealth & breadth of experience. This allows them to play a valuable role in hiring a replacement, mentoring a junior team & almost always at a reduced cost from that of a traditional consultancy.”
“Interim Management complements our executive search offering, enabling us to present a tailored solution to all of our clients’ needs. Be it filling a short term gap, steering an organization through change, providing ‘outsider’ advice or setting up a programme office, Australian business is increasingly utilizing the concept of interim.”

“Thorough targeted research is at the core of our business and leads to timely and effective placements.”
