‘It is not what you know, but who you know’.

The better positions are more likely to arise through contact and referral rather than through adverts and applications on the open market, particularly for the more responsible senior roles.

The ability to do a great job counts for little, if you cannot connect with the people who have the right openings and opportunities for you. As a result you will have little chance of achieving your full career potential.

As soon as our clients’ are fully prepared and ready to go to Market, we have a unique and proprietary set of Networks to support them in their marketing campaign.

Connaught has developed a unique reach and capability in each of these areas.

CONNAUGHT NETWORKS to support you:

  • Connaught Head-Hunter Network
  • Connaught Alumni Network
  • Connaught Connections Network
  • Connaught Alumni Network meetings


Connaught Head-Hunter Network

Top Tier International Search Firms, Boutiques through to Solo specialists.

The Connaught Head Hunter database has been built over many search campaigns. Our proprietary Head Hunter Database has thousands of search consultants with details of their sector expertise and functional areas. As well as Connaught circulating your details to relevant consultants, the consultants and their researchers also approach Connaught in their search for suitable candidates.

Connaught Alumni Network

Connections and referrals to people in the right positions.

Upon completion of the Market Preparation Programme and moving into a supported job search campaign with Connaught, you will be linked in to the Alumni Network. Every member has immediate and direct access to the full membership of an exclusive Linkedin Group. You can see a sample of the membership and what they have published about their experiences with Connaught by clicking on the reviews tab at the top of this page.

Connaught Connections Network

In the course of meeting face to face with prospective clients we have connections to and knowledge of the background of a further tier of executives who we can call upon when appropriate to help our active clients.

Connaught Alumni Network meetings

We hold regular meetings for our Alumni to meet in person and build their connections within the Alumni network and beyond. Guest speakers have included head-hunters, connecting with our clients in person and giving the group their perspective on the job market, past clients sharing their experience, Business In The Community and the Prince’s Trust discussing the value of mentoring and making a contribution to the community and specialist sessions, ranging from effective use of social media and Linkedin to goal setting that really does work.

Help and guidance on how to get best use of your own direct and extended network (and I’m not talking LinkedIn) was invaluable and ultimately landed me my next role
