Executive Search – Corvus Assured

Our Executive Search methodology, Corvus Assured, is a data-led process designed for critical and Executive hires. Our consultants invest time with your senior team to understand your business, culture, and the roles you need to fill. With this in-depth insight, we apply our extensive recruitment experience, along with cutting-edge technology and behavioural profiling, to identify qualified candidates who are a cultural fit for your organisation. Our rigorous process ensures that we match the right people to the right roles, leading to higher retention rates and better working relationships. In fact, 97% of our Corvus Assured candidates have been in their new role for 12 months or more, which is why we will replace our candidates, free of charge, if they move on within less than a year.

HR for Growth

We provide a comprehensive range of HR services aimed at creating a culture within your business that encourages employee engagement, and in turn, retention. Our HR for Growth services will support your business in utilising your people for success, while also bringing them along on the journey. 

We work in partnership with you to identify your top talent, and to design comprehensive, strategy-orientated talent management plans. These could include early-career programmes, organisational design, leadership development, coaching and more. Regardless of your chosen route, we tailor our approach to match your existing processes, ensuring that you have all bases of your HR covered.

Is your business going through a period of planned expansion or change? With time-sensitive talent demands, labour-intensive recruitment processes can act as a blocker to your growth strategy. Our experts can take the pressure off your team so they can focus on what matters most to them – giving you back valuable time and resources and ensuring the efficient delivery of your business plan. Our team can support you throughout the project and is equipped with the tools and skills required to fulfil challenging and complex assignments. 

We have a partnership approach and will work as an extension of your internal Talent and HR teams to create a seamless and integrated delivery.

You will work in partnership with a dedicated consultant who will project manage your recruitment process from start to finish. Your recruitment partner will offer valuable guidance on identifying, attracting, and appointing the best individuals to meet your business and cultural requirements. Our clients have different priorities, cultures and needs, so our solutions offer flexibility within our delivery process to ensure you get exactly what you need. 

Because we believe each position is important, we opt to work on fewer roles than other recruitment agencies. As part of this, we will only work exclusively on your open positions, enabling us to give you our commitment that we will invest more time and focus into your recruitment process.

Over the last three years, the company has steadily grown. Our priority was to develop team and individual skills to enable a flexible and agile team. JMG had been working on a project to capture the current and future skills, and due to the project's complexity, we recognised that we needed external experience and support.

JMG has had a long-standing relationship with Corvus People from a recruitment perspective. We value their ethics and approach to these activities and decided to explore the HR for Growth side of the business. I met with Chris, and he really took the time to understand what we needed and put forward solutions that allowed JMG to determine which direction was right for us.

Chris asks challenging questions and facilitates open discussions, enabling our team to reflect and be open to new ideas - bringing positive changes to the business and allowing our team members to have more structured development plans.

We look forward to continuing to strengthen our relationship with Corvus People and the quality service they deliver.

Debbie O’Brien - JMG Systems

We identified a complex role within the business that required a demanding skill set. Finding the right person for this role presented us with a challenge - we had specific criteria that could be tricky to meet.

We had a relationship with Corvus People in the past and were keen to explore their more recent Corvus Assured offering, which is unique in the market and provides a different approach than traditional Executive Search services.

The role was difficult to fill, but our Consultant, did a fantastic job and was very responsive to our requests. The attention and customer service were great, and after some searching, they identified the right candidate who relocated internationally for the role. I would recommend this service to anyone who has hard-to-meet criteria or is looking for a different, more in-depth recruitment process.

In the current climate it is difficult to recruit quality candidates. Corvus have so far delivered us with two excellent senior members of staff who have elevated the business to another level, and we have third member starting shortly arranged through Corvus.

When Michael initially made contact with me it was evident that Corvus recruited people differently to most other companies. They attempt to place people who they recognise exactly suit the role, where others would be guilty of just throwing CV’s at you. I have only every received quality candidates through Corvus.

The quality of the services has help me to grow my business, and Michael, Ian and Helen have been very supportive and friendly throughout the process.

We have been facing ongoing challenges within the recruitment process, which has been the case for the past 18 months. Unfortunately, this has not been specific to one type of role or region. Attracting well-matched candidates and avoiding 'time-wasters' has been difficult. It has meant that, on a few occasions, we have had to restart the process from the beginning, taking a lot of resources from our team.

I had an existing relationship with Helen from my previous company, and when she reached out I had no hesitation in trusting her with the vacancy. The candidate who was placed is a great fit for the business and is coming with the right amount of relevant experience that we were looking for. Helen listened to what we wanted and found us the perfect fit! I would have no hesitation in choosing Corvus People for our next vacancy.

Laura Cassells – Acheson & Glover

My client required a Sales Executive but after posting the role through their own channels, they became overwhelmed by applications that didn’t fit the brief. We identified the need for a more personalised service with a well-filtered candidate list that best suited our requirements.

I knew Michael through business networking and liked how he and his team do business - they offer a personalised, professional, and high-quality service. Some other agencies send over several CVs without necessarily matching them with the job specification or client requirements, which is not the case with Corvus People. My client has benefitted from reduced time on recruitment, and I can recommend an efficient recruitment solution to my clients. I would recommend this service to anyone who wants to take the hassle out of recruitment.

Kerry Spence Consulting

Our business is continuing to grow, and we needed help attracting the best surveyors and project managers to join our team. We have an amazing staff retention rate and want to ensure we were hiring people who would love working with us. We needed assistance with shortlisting and used Corvus People’s behavioural bench-marking tool to help us target more relevant candidates - it helped us understand which potential team members were the best fit for us from a cultural perspective.

Corvus understood that we weren't just trying to put bums on seats and wanted to hire employees who would grow alongside us. We talked a lot with Corvus about our company’s ethos and felt they were able to convey this to potential hires effectively. We love that Corvus took the time to get to know us and our business.

We have successfully placed several employees with the help of Corvus People, and we continue to work with them.

They are enthusiastic, proactive, and caring, and it is a pleasure to partner with their team.

Claire Mullan – ESC Construction Consultants

Corvus People were recommended to me by a trusted friend and business advisor to recruit for a high-level role within the business. The recruitment of this role needed to be carefully administered and Corvus People were the team to ensure that. From the offset, everything was friendly, professional, and programmed. The level of service from the beginning right through to aftercare has been exceptional.

As a face-paced, proactive, but also very reactive business, the level of support and service that Corvus People offer is second to none. They were exactly what we needed to progress with the hire while we could focus on the day-to-day and give our input when required.

Corvus People will be looking after all our recruitment needs moving forward, and we look forward to working with them again.

Conor Cole - Cole Groundworks Contracts

Having worked with Michael and Michelle from Corvus I found them extremely professional, They worked very closely with us to not only understand more about the role we were looking to fill but also the nature of our business and people. I can highly recommend the whole Corvus experience.

Woodland NI

I have used Michael’s services for business recruitment and personal career change. Michael is highly professional, intuitive and knowledgeable across several business sectors to assist with finding the right candidates for the right roles. Highly recommended!

Babcock International

Working with Michelle Kearns at Corvus has been a pleasure, there was regular contact, honest and transparent conversations about what I was looking for and what the company was able to offer. If I requested more information about any particular points Michelle provided robust and concise feedback with all the detail needed and would often check-in to see if there was any further support I required. I was in the process of moving country and Michelle also understood the pressures this involved and would give me time to think about any offers made and also helped accommodate support within that offer for the relocation.

Michelle was very professional in how she handled my case and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to make the next move in their career. She has demonstrated a high standard of work and negotiation to get me the package that best suited my circumstances and I am very grateful for all her hard work.


Excellent to deal with and very helpful. Kept constantly in contact to keep me up to date with how things were going and was very helpful both prior to and after getting my offer!
