Our mission is to provide the best talent acquisition support you can imagine.

About Research Partners

Research Partners provide our clients with a fresh approach from using a traditional search firm or agency. If you want to take a different approach to finding high-performing people who can transform your business – we can help.

Our unique pricing model means you pay on a cost per time basis, for our recruiters to seamlessly integrate with your inhouse talent team. We don’t charge any commission. The focus remains on quality, but delivered at a lower more transparent cost.

Global Reach – Local Knowledge

Need a territory covered? Our team can be put together taking into account the geographic reach of our client, with our research capability spanning across Europe, Asia and North America. Having consultants on the ground with local and intimate knowledge of each market allows us to provide our service more effectivelyaccurately. We have experience working in both developed and emerging markets such as LATAM, Africa and Asia.

Our Services

We believe our service takes all of the best elements of search, attention to detail with an engagement driven approach, and applies it in a more flexible way.  Many of the services are not always designed to immediately hire a particular individual, and to accommodate this, we have a greater flexibility on the delivery approach and fee structures.
