Alexander Mann Solutions caters for clients’ needs in executive search
Alexander Mann Solutions, the provider of world-class talent and resourcing capability, has today announced that it has hired David Williams as its Head of Talent Acquisition.
The role will see David run Alexander Mann Solutions’ global executive search business across all sectors and geographies. As Head of Talent Acquisition, David will be responsible for developing new ways of approaching executive search to make it more efficient and cost-effective for businesses looking to hire senior talent.
A key way in which David is looking to revolutionise AMS’s current talent strategy is through replicating AMS’ recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) model, which sees search teams embedded into the clients’ business. By embedding an executive search team in-house, AMS will be able to fully understand the & lsquo;DNA’ of that business and effectively communicate it to the marketplace.
The team will also be in a stronger position to access key data, knowledge, decision-making hierarchies and existing employees to create a database of individuals who can be brought into the business or moved from other teams within that business as required.
This approach is already successfully deployed as part of AMS’ RPO offering and by applying it to the process of executive search, AMS expects to see the cost-efficiency of executive search dramatically increase.
Tom Marsden, director of professional services, Alexander Mann Solutions: “This is an exciting new chapter in AMS’ history and stands to revolutionise how businesses engage with key senior talent. We believe it’s very important to provide a segmented approach to recruitment – focusing on the needs of the candidates and hiring managers.
That’s where AMS’ Talent Acquisition offering comes to the fore as it is highly personalised and personal approach to recruitment. By embedding our teams into the business we can quite significantly improve the speed and quality of hires as well as providing a pipeline of talent for the future.”
On joining Alexander Mann Solutions, David said: “I am looking forward to the challenge of broadening AMS’ executive search offering, particularly given the strong global footprint of the company. AMS is one of the few operators in the talent space that is truly international. With the predicted growth of emerging markets, there will be a shift in headcount to satisfy demand and AMS has the knowledge, experience and global talent pools to make this possible.”
David has over twenty years experience in talent management, and founded his own company - Global Market Search - in 1994. Global Market Search is a pioneer of executive search for senior hires in investment banking in emerging markets such as Russia and Africa.
