Recruiting Exceptional Executives For Our Clients
We Know the Difference that Exceptional Executives Can Make
Feel executive search recruitment firms take too long and under-deliver?
At Norrie Johnston Recruitment we don’t believe clients should have to wait. Founded in 2013 and corporate members of the REC, we focus our executive search recruitment service on finding the very best senior talent for each and every brief. Good, carefully hand-picked, people who will not only join a business, but actually stay and perform.
We can do this because our world-class recruiters are not like typical recruiters. They all have real-world experience. They have worked at a senior level, in a variety of sectors, within the corporate world.
This means they can have a peer-to-peer discussion with you and ensure the brief really reflects your business’ situation.
Combining this experience and rigour with the speed and reach of our vast networks – NJR delivers candidates who truly fit with the company’s culture and long-term needs – fast.
