We make even the most specialist searches, simple
From small dealerships to international auction houses, each of our clients has highly specialised roles and hugely varied needs. Our long experience has helped us refine the process so it fits as closely as possible to your business and needs.
A constantly refreshed pool of talent
Our candidate database has been built over nearly 20 years and we aim to meet as many of them as possible. We’re confident we’ve got strong candidates for most roles – if not, we use our extensive network and targeted marketing to find the right people.
Understanding the needs of your business
Every role is as important to us as it is to you. So although we’ll get back to you fast – we don’t rush our introductions. Getting to know you helps us save you time later by only sending truly suitable candidates for interview.
1-2-1 support whatever the size of your business
We allocate you a dedicated member of our team, so you don’t get passed around and have a clear point of contact. Chosen for their experience of your specialism or business, they’ll be there to support you throughout the process.
How we work
Smoothing the hiring process, step-by-step
For busy clients, especially in smaller businesses, sourcing, interviewing, assessing and selecting the person who is the perfect fit can be a lengthy and time-consuming process. This is a burden we can lift from your shoulders, with a fuss-free approach that makes it easier at every stage.
We get back to you quickly
And don’t leave you hanging! We acknowledge every enquiry with a short initial call.
A fast follow up meeting or video call
One of our consultants will meet you to explore your search requirements, timelines, future organisational strategy and mission, and to get an understanding of your company culture.
Clear terms of business & fees
All our searches are free – until they’re successful! We are always totally upfront about our fee structure and timescales – and agree this with you in advance of the search.
No cherry-picking of roles
We’ll handle all your roles – not just the senior or high status one.
The full market view
We do market analysis, candidate profiling, talent mapping and a final assessment of the candidate shortlist before you see anyone.
Going further to find the right candidate
If our extensive database doesn’t have who you need, we’ll use a range of innovative sourcing techniques – including linked in, advertising partnerships and our own sizable network to find the right candidate.
Properly screened candidates
We’ve ALWAYS met and screened any candidate we send you first. You’ll get our own interview synopsis as well as their CV.
Helping drive diversity
We actively seek to improve diversity outcomes by presenting diverse short lists whenever we can that consider race, as well as background and social class.
A genuine shortlist
No bombarding you with CVs – we draw up a genuine shortlist of relevant candidates, at least 3 for every vacancy.
Communication – when it counts
We’re there whenever you need us – but we get in touch when it’s necessary not for the sake of it.
We look after the details
From legal and identity checks, to references and salary negotiations – we take it off your hands and can also support you to integrate your new hire into your business successfully.
An honest and fair service
As a member of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC), the only professional body representing the whole recruitment industry, we adhere to their strict Code of Practice.
All your recruitment and HR needs covered
Draw offers a full suite of services to support your business from recruitment through to HR services. We particularly specialise in working with SMEs who may not have their own HR people or time to spare – and require that extra level of support and input we offer.
Our main service, we’ve placed 100s of candidates in roles at all levels within the art, antiques and luxury worlds.
Our dedicated division covers temporary workers, contractors and freelancers. As well as finding the right candidate for the job this service is right if you need to hire people fast, are looking for a specific expertise or want to make a cost-effective trial hire before making a role permanent.
Based on clients’ specific criteria, we offer a discreet and highly effective global executive search service for director level and specialised roles. An executive search would typically cover a 12-week process – as the art market is relatively small we do ask for a period of exclusivity for an Executive Search.
If you are a smaller business who doesn’t have the time or resource for HR administration, we can help. We cover everything from contractual and legal matters relating to compliance, right through to pensions and performance management.
We have worked with many of the art industries leading players and enjoy excellent relationships with a breadth of clients from large international businesses to small dealerships and start-ups.
