Where do we find our candidates?

At entry level, most of our candidates come from Consulting, Investment Banking or Accounting.

For experienced investors, we tend to source our candidates from other Investment Firms.

We are also encouraging our clients to look further afield to find the best talent:

  • Corporate Development
  • Start Ups
  • Technology Firms
  • Other Professional Services - e.g. Law

How do we guarantee the best shortlists?

Our research into the candidate universe is as intensive as possible to make sure that we have the best coverage in the market. This is to ensure we have not only breadth of candidate coverage, but also real depth of understanding of each individual looking to move.

We start our coverage as early as possible by forming relationships with the top European Business Schools, and then track every move into Banking and Consulting. By the time we place an Associate, we will have been building a relationship with that candidate for more than 3 years: this means that our shortlists comprise the best individuals, not just the best CVs.

We’re very proud of our dedication to research, and we’d love to show you how we go about our work in person, so please do get in touch at clientenquiries@keaconsultants.com.
