OJ Executive

Why OJ Executive

Our global OJ Executive team specialises in C-suite appointments and technical positions at Executive level across all functions of (re)Insurance and financial services businesses. Our team is based across the UK, mainland Europe, Asia Pacific and the US focusing on developing long-term relationships with a diverse network of current and future leaders.

In addition to our C-suite networks, our functional expertise also means we engage with senior talent in focused fields every day. Rather than starting each search with a blank canvas, we use our 15+ years of experience, comprehensive market maps, data and relationships to source talent. Unlike traditional search firms, the candidates we target for senior appointments have often been known to us for many years before they reached management level.

What differentiates us further is our range of flexible solutions that can be designed to suit your situation and needs.

Flexible solutions

We take a flexible, ground-up approach to building a solution that meets your exact needs:

Full search: End-to-end search, including full relevant market map and report, exclusivity of candidates and 360 referencing, as standard.

Search lite: Supplementing your existing shortlist of internal and/or direct candidates.

Search recovery: Salvaging a search conducted by another firm that has not resulted in an appointment.

Talent pipelining – when you want to be made aware of great talent and potential future leaders.

Direct approach: Confidential approach to talent you are already aware of but cannot contact directly.

Multi-location search: For hires which could be based in multiple global hubs, we can engage our local market experts to support in identifying candidates, whilst keeping one point of contact for you

Modular services

Market Mapping & reports: Full visibility of talent, competitors and trends in relevant markets.

Formal 360 referencing: Superior, peer, subordinate, external stakeholders.

Informal referencing: Discrete references taken within our trusted network.

Designing inclusive search processes: Gender-neutralising role profiles, advertising campaigns, anonymising shortlists and interview process advice.

Psychometric testing: In conjunction with one or more of our trusted partners

Compensation benchmarking: Data-driven insight to support budget approval or market alignment for existing Executives.
