CRA Executive Search & Selection: Bespoke recruitment solutions for partner positions in the legal and finance sectors

CRA’s specialist executive search and selection service has been created to find law firms and accountancy practices the new partners they need to achieve their strategic objectives.

Or, if you are an outstanding candidate looking for a partner position within an ambitious new firm to accelerate your career, our executive search and selection team will help you identify and pursue the most exciting opportunities.

Partner Search & Selection for clients

Our process has been designed to give you the best results by selecting potential new partners who meet your brief.

You will be in the hands of our highly experienced consultants.  They will use an unbeatable combination of their expertise, their networks and the latest technology to profile and identify highly credible potential partners that provide all the skills and experience you’ll need to take the next step.

Our retained approach to executive search and selection means we can allocate all our internal resources so that every partnership opportunity receives all the attention and resource needed to achieve the best results. 

We do this by following our proven search and selection process:

  • Instruction and planning

We will do everything to ensure we understand the brief and have all the resources to start the campaign.

  • Design and review

We design the adverts and review all the existing materials and methods before agreeing a plan with you that confirms the timeframes and the methods we’ll use.

  • Research

Our consultants are well supported by a research team that has an already well-developed network in the specialism you are looking to recruit in.

  • Interview

Any suitable candidates are interviewed by us.  We will use the most suitable psychometric testing and profiling methods if required.

  • State-of-the-art methods

We use traditional search and selection techniques combined with some of the latest AI tools in the industry as and when we need to.

  • Access to our networks

We will utilise our consultants’ networks to reference and provide further information you can use to your benefit during the selection process.

  • Shortlisting

We will present you with a final shortlist of candidates for you to interview together with notes on the shortlist and any additional information you require.

  • Ongoing support

Once we achieve a successful outcome, we will manage the offer and onboarding processes and stay in touch during the first months of your new role to ensure you and your new partner is fully settled.

Search & Selection for candidates

Are you finding your legal career has stagnated and not developing as you’d like because your route to partnership is either not clear or blocked entirely?  

If this is the case, our experienced consultants will help.  We know how to create exciting new partnership opportunities to a specific brief.

We have specialists across both the legal and accountancy sectors who will work closely with you to identify the right organisations, firms that hold the same values as you and offer the opportunities you want.

We will work proactively for you either having created a specific brief or as part of the multiple recruitment  campaigns we are running for legal and accountancy firms that include the specific partnership opportunities you want.  

The first stage is to meet with you to create your personal career plan.  From there we will support you throughout the process, always sharing career advice and feedback where we can, until we achieve the result you want – partnership in the right firm.
