Integrated Feedback

srch handles every facet of every interview.

Comprehensive Interviews

After any client/candidate interview, we conduct a candidate debrief as part of our standard process. We aggregate feedback from both sides of the interview, allowing us to continue narrowing the field until we find the perfect candidate. This is how we’re able to conclude searches so quickly: we listen.

Sourcing begins with a survey of the competitive landscape and adjacent markets for companies in parallel motion to our client. Once we pinpoint innovation and efficiency, our network allows us to quickly peel through corporate layers until we find the folks responsible. That’s when we get creative to get them on the phone.

Tyler Mullins
Founder & CEO - Marching Order

SRCH Partners went above and beyond expectations for our recent executive search. He was fully engaged throughout the process and took the time to truly understand both the state of the company and the opportunity that the position would offer a candidate.

Zack Onisko
CEO - Dribbble

Each executive we hire is incredibly important to our business, but with SRCH Partners I trust that we’re in good hands. Each time we have engaged Tighe for an executive search, I’m pleasantly surprised by the quantity and quality of candidates he brings to the table. The work he does behind the scenes to screen, interview, and pitch our company is highly valuable and ensures a great hiring process for everyone involved.

CEO and Founder - Moose

Tighe is easily the best recruiter I've ever worked with. Just closed a hire with him, and he not only found me exactly what I needed (which was a needle in a haystack hire) but was an absolute pleasure to work with and really, really good at what he does.

Sam Parr
CEO and Founder - The Hustle

Look, I don't usually think recruiters add much value and almost never use them. They are overpaid and rarely feel like a part of the team effort to actively find an amazing candidate. But Tighe completely crushed those preconceptions when it came time to find a CEO for my business.

He was obsessively involved with sourcing the candidates himself, which meant he knew everything about our market.

Ben Moore
CEO, Pixel Union Design

Initially, we were hesitant to engage with Tighe and srch because our B.C.-based business is in a very niche market. Once we got going with him, however, it was clear he understood exactly what we needed in an executive leader and we were excited by the candidates he was bringing forward. When we changed the scope of the search late in the game (from Director to CEO of the business), Tighe handled the shift seamlessly and hardly missed a beat before he had a new round of highly qualified candidates to meet. We've gone back to Tighe many times since, both for his ability to execute as well as his genuine and authentic way of working. A recruiter is basically an ambassador for your business for as long as they're active on your account, and I don't hesitate to have Tighe out in the world representing us.

Srch tigheburke

Tighe Burke
Founder

I remind myself constantly - srch is good today because we haven’t always been.

One critical lesson we’ve learned? We focus best when stakes are high. That’s why we’ll always be boutique: immaterial searches don’t exist for specialists.

Whether recruiting executives, building customized teams, or advising on human capital/succession matters, we prize the ability to stay nimble, adaptable, and laser-focused on the task at hand. Our M.O. is to steer clear of established, archaic corporate frameworks.

Our research is second to none. It’s hands down the thing we do best for our clients. We’re OBSESSED with finding forward-thinking leaders for growth stage tech companies who want to challenge existing norms. Sometimes, it takes a true ally to tell you that, “While you may want someone who was #6 at a unicorn, #77 is probably a better fit for your trajectory. And we heard some crappy things about that #6 anyway…”

We can tell you these things because we source candidates on our own. We are experts in our market.

srch was founded on the principle that recruiting shouldn’t suck, and a company shouldn’t pay for something they don’t actually get (a hire). That’s how we’ve always done things, and how we always will.
