McCann & Braham work with a very select number of clients so we can always deliver an exceptional quality of service. Our primary purpose is to create sustainable value for our clients, focusing on the provision of top-level recruitment strategies and sourcing solutions to meet the business challenges they face in this highly competitive market.

Our business model includes both the traditional route to sourcing candidates as well as access via our own network.

For every assignment we take a cross hybrid approach, combining the following integrated search & selection methods.


Retained Search

Retained Search is a targeted, proactive method of recruitment that is particularly suited to identifying and attracting candidates for senior management and executive roles. Its direct approach identifies and attracts the best candidates for business critical, urgent positions that other more traditional methods have failed to fill.

There are also other benefits that our clients receive during a retained search process. We provide detailed competitor analysis, salary information and benchmarking.

Advertised Selection

There are definite occasions where we recommend the use of advertising; these include certain locations, high volume recruitment and recruitment road shows.

When advertising, we research and provide advice on the most appropriate advertising media, locations and timing. We book, write and design the copy in liaison with our clients. During the campaign all applications are responded to in a professional manner. We conduct screening interviews and present a short-list of candidates to the client within an agreed timeframe.

Our long relationships with media and advertising agencies ensure we are able to offer the most competitive price and all discounts are passed on to the client in full.


We recognise that our clients won't always want to retain our services and recommended this approach at the instigation of any recruitment process. It can provide a quick turn around when a suitably qualified candidate is known to McCann & Braham so we invest considerable time and resources into developing an impressive database of candidates worldwide.
