Clifton Governance specialises purely in the corporate governance market place and primarily sources into the following functional areas:

  • Internal Audit
  • IT Audit
  • Operational Risk
  • Fraud
  • Compliance
  • Information Security

Our consultants all have substantial experience within their markets and because we specialise, we are able to offer a truly consultative service and can tailor our approach to deliver the most appropriate recruitment solution. We partner with our clients to offer full retained search, contingent selection and also contract solutions as well as salary and team structure benchmarking and market intelligence. We are also able to partner with in-house recruitment functions to offer response screening services – ensuring an even benchmark where clients are pursuing a multi-source recruitment strategy.

Our approach typically involves a detailed initial briefing to ensure that we fully understand your objectives and timescales as well as both the candidate specification and the all important cultural fit. We understand that in niche functional areas such as governance the best talent isn’t typically waiting on the database of a large corporate recruiter so we utilise a pro-active approach to our talent pools. Of course, we utilise the latest networking platforms and have a UK based research facility but we also have the experience to ensure our network extends beyond the typical and are usually in dialogue with our candidates’ way before they may become active in the market. Once shortlisted, candidates are interviewed using competency based interview techniques ensuring that recommendations are only made for well matched candidates. In fact we pride ourselves on our conversion ratios of CV to interview and interview to hire which ultimately saves you both time and expense. Finally we keep in close contact throughout the entire process, ensuring that you are kept informed and there are no surprises – particularly around the crucial offer and post-offer stages.

Lastly, whilst we do undertake one-off projects, we always seek to build lasting relationships with our contacts whether you are a client or a potential candidate, Hence the vast majority of our relationships have been developed over many years. We look forward to including you within our network.
