About Us

To recruit the best, you need more than a supplier

Emerson Chase is a proactive executive search and HEADHUNTING SPECIALIST  with a primary focus on sales, management and leadership positions.

For nearly 25 years, we've been headhunting and networking on a global scale with the top-performing sales, management, and leadership professionals within the Process, Control, Instrumentation, Automation, and Safety markets.  Our extensive network and industry experience guarantees that we can always establish a strong shortlist for our clients quickly.

We specialise in business-critical roles; the key positions that hold responsibility for the growth and success of your business and those where the return on your investment will be the focus of the search.

Most individuals we place with our clients are typically not on the open market for a new role as they are likely to be in a strong position with their current employer, and won't be in a desperate need to find a new role.

The most successful professionals and top performers are rarely seeking a change and are not likely to be registered with agencies or job boards or open to approaches from a generalist or internal recruiter. The likelihood is that the very best fit for your opportunity will currently be in a good position and will be very wary about communicating their openness to a move with people they don’t know. These individuals, however, are available to you, if approached and managed in the right way.

Our history in the industry and our confidential and professional approach allows us to speak with anyone, which ensures that we leave no stone left unturned in our search!

Furthermore, although we only offer a proactive headhunt methodology, we provide the same approach and commitment whether you need a C-Suite Executive or a Regional Sales Manager. 

There are many benefits to using our approach, some are detailed in the link below, but to find out exactly how we can add value to your current recruitment strategy, please get in touch!
