HR Director

We worked with Alternatives Elect to source a senior Strategy role on a truly global basis. This was a tough search process with a very exacting brief. We needed a partner with genuine international reach and an ability to convey our value proposition in a highly effective manner. Adrian was able to deliver against those requirements and was a pleasure to work with. He found us a select group of highly targeted candidates and we are delighted to have made a successful hire.

SENIOR HR BUSINESS PARTNER / AIB

I worked with Adrian and Bernie in Alternatives Elect on a number of occasions to source senior hires for our Group Marketing function. It was fantastic to be able to work with people like Adrian and Bernie who took the time to really understand our needs as a client and then followed through with a process that was in line with their commitments. They provided myself and the CMO and members of his Leadership Team with a great overview of suitable candidates that were available from Ireland and beyond. They are both passionate about sourcing great talent and are excellent relationship managers that deliver a truly unique customer experience. I look forward to continuing to partner with them in the future in relation to roles across the Bank

I was impressed by Alternatives Group ability to map the market to identify the most suitable senior candidates for my requirements, to advise and challenge me in relation to candidates and to professionally manage the whole process to successful conclusion. I felt that they understood my needs and we worked together as partners throughout the process.

CHIEF PEOPLE OFFICER / FINEOS

A global technology company operating in a niche business sector, we engaged Alternatives Elect to conduct a Senior European search on our behalf. The new appointee would drive a significant strategic imperative for our organization to increase our foot hold and market share in the European market. The breadth and caliber of candidates presented displayed they clearly understood the brief and the type of person who would fit culturally in our organization. They worked in partnership with us to find us the best talent for the role and were with us every step of the way . As we gained more clarity on our needs and the level of person we needed, Alternatives Elect never failed to continue to deliver on the revised brief. The team were our brand ambassadors in Europe and we couldn’t have asked for better to represent us to passive talent. They deliver a transparent search, keeping us updated regularly, and were committed to finding us the best person for our needs. We continue to work in partnership with them, both now and into the future.
