Recruitment Agency Launches Thriving Executive Division

Nottingham’s Distinct Recruitment continues to enjoy success and help drive growth in the region, thanks to its thriving Executive division. On the back of year-on-year sales growth of 68% in 2021, the business is quickly making a name for itself as the recruiter of choice for Executive and board-level appointments in the East Midlands.

Distinct Executive has attributed its divisions' growth to its team’s regional knowledge and market specialisms, which span high-level recruitment for Accountancy & Finance, Human Resources, IT & Technology, Marketing & Analytics, and Procurement & Supply Chain.

In addition, its business model is focused on the delivery of candidates up front, instead of the standard executive recruitment processes which demand the majority of the search fee be paid first. This change of approach has contributed to the team’s 100% success rate of presenting the right candidates to a large range of SMEs and large corporates who are seeking high-level personnel. They are focused on finding the right person from their catchment areas of Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Derbyshire, and Milton Keynes, and not chasing a finder’s fee.

Division lead Alex Alcock says it’s Distinct Executive’s passion for the East Midlands and sector expertise that is helping the business to stay ahead of the competition. He comments:

“Many businesses have in the past assumed that it’s only head hunter recruitment businesses in large cities who will attract the top executive candidates.

However, our passion for the East Midlands, coupled with our knowledge of top-level people in the area, is a winning combination. Our team are experts in their recruitment areas, so they understand what businesses are looking for. They can use their local knowledge to combine both areas to deliver a selection of candidates that not only meet the brief – but exceed the brief.”

Last year, Distinct moved its head office to Nottingham’s historic Lace Market and opened new sites in Milton Keynes and London, alongside expanding internationally with new offices in New York and Boston.

The business continues to build on its founding principles of being people-focused through reinvestment, to help grow the team and support their career paths. From its inception, Distinct set out to offer a different working environment - removing the financial pressure points from its business growth model to instead focus on the talent within the business.
