A boutique operation!

We're what's known in the recruitment world as a boutique headhunting outfit, more than three-quarters of the candidates we recruit we've never spoken with before...

That's one of the big differences between a headhunting approach and recruitment agents - the latter tend to work from a candidate database heavily populated with people who are unemployed.

Often the best people for our clients' challenges are heads down and happy, not available on the open jobs market and not open to a move.

Our mandate is all about our clients best interests.

Robert Tearle Consulting is committed to helping you bring about the best and better hiring outcomes.

It's your people who will make the difference between your success or failure.

Not a global executive search firm to the Top 1,000 Global companies nor a standard recruitment agency, we're specialists. You'll find us friendly, fast-paced, objective and 100% on your side.



Our clients are tech firms and digital businesses, for whom we recruit people into:

  • Leadership (CEO, COO, CRO, CMO...)
  • Sales (Directors, Managers, Specialists & Pre Sales)
  • Consulting and Project Management positions

Our specialism is in recruiting into high impact roles.

It’s well known that having the right people on board is the key to success in any industry.

However, hiring them is often time consuming and arduous.

We'll help you save time and make sure you don't get distracted.

And there’s added pressure: a bad hire can spell disaster.

Whereas a good hire will ensure significant success. These decisions therefore shouldn’t be taken lightly.

We bring an extra set of eyes and ears to the hiring process.

You'll benefit from our 29 years of experience, the insights and expertise we can share with you.

Helping you to maximise your chances of successful hiring outcomes and mitigating your risk.
