Research Capability & Expertise

At Bronzegate, our dedicated and professional research function provides support on all our executive search processes.

Working in unison with the consulting Partner, the research, insight and analysis derived allows us to systematically work towards the best possible shortlist of candidates per assignment.


Our research is proactive and comprehensive, responsible not just for selecting candidates within the market but providing insight into industry trends as well as a target company’s culture, organisational structure and the profiles and remuneration of key staff. This approach allows us to build a detailed map and gain considerable understanding as to the range of potential options available for our clients.

At Bronzegate, there is also a clear and deliberate delineation between the role of a Researcher and that of a Partner.

It is our belief that whilst supported by excellent research and analysis, the first approach to important target candidates should and is always handled by a Partner. This provides our clients with the assurance that the initial message, which can so often be vital to raising interest levels, to potential candidates is delivered by an industry professional with many years of consulting expertise. Managing relationships with candidates and the research process in this way is an important component of our successful executive search history.
