How we work

We are a global search firm, proud to have established excellent relationships with leading companies in the Finance Sector.


We take great care and work in partnership with our clients to ascertain and fully understand not only the specific needs of the role, but also the nature and aspirations of the client’s business itself. This is learnt through face to face meetings, telephone conversations and our own research. Armed with this information, Alexander Chapman is able to identify and source the most appropriate candidates, efficiently and ahead of the competition. Every client has their own dedicated account manager.

Your brief

After gaining a full understanding of your business and requirements, we will work with you to formulate a well-defined recruitment plan which accurately identifies the talent profile you need in order to strengthen your business. If your requirements and priorities change, we will respond with agility to any strategic redirection.

Search and selection

Having confirmed the recruitment brief and agreed working terms of contract, Alexander Chapman will immediately set about identifying the appropriate candidate talent pools from which to source the best available individuals to join your organisation. This process will culminate in the provision of an initial candidate shortlist and may utilise a number of recruitment practices, including, headhunting, database screening, advertising and social media networking as appropriate.


Organising an interview schedule can be a complex logistical task, particularly when it involves coordinating the diaries of senior executives and numerous candidates across time zones and over multiple interview stages. Alexander Chapman is highly experienced in the interview process and will manage every aspect for you in order to minimise the impact on your own in-house teams.
We will liaise with you and the candidate interviewees throughout the process ensuring communication and planning is as smooth and efficient as possible.

Securing a candidate

Making an offer to and securing your chosen candidate is the culmination of a successfully delivered project. We take great care to manage the process from start to finish, ensuring you get the best possible result.
We have sourced outstanding talent over long and complex negotiation cycles, in markets across the world. We are committed to delivering and will always go the extra mile to do so.


Having secured your chosen candidate, we will continue to oversee and manage communications with them until they have been fully inducted into your team. We will complete and assist with the necessary HR and administrative procedures that are required at this stage.
Throughout the process we will be in regular contact with you through face to face meetings, teleconferences and email to ensure we are consistently delivering to the highest possible standards, making certain that we are also responsive to any changes to the brief which may occur based on your priorities.
On completion of a project we will also ask for your feedback on the process as a whole to ensure that if we can improve our service to you in any way, appropriate changes will be made accordingly.
