Partner with us


At Crucial we truly value the importance of people and culture to the success of any business. We ENABLE our clients to implement their talent strategy and ensure we connect them to the best solutions and people on the planet. We have a unique approach to the way we partner with you understanding the challenges within the current business structure and to truly unearth what’s needed to achieve your vision. Whether we are upskilling your team, headhunting new talent pools or assisting our clients in understanding the talent landscape in a succession planning exercise, Crucial keep our clients and candidates informed and engaged every step of the way.

We use traditional networking skills as well as executive search approaches to find the best passive and active candidates out there, and where talent pools are very niche, we have a unique and creative approach to secure astonishing talent at pace. We consider our candidate engagement a key focus for us as an organisation, this is demonstrable through the high number of referrals we receive and our client relationships which in many cases span more than a decade.



We ensure we SIMPLIFY the recruitment process for our clients and candidates. We offer insight into the market and sector to assist you in making the most informed hiring decisions. Through a collaborative approach we learn about your business to explore whether where we can assist across candidate attraction, retention and succession planning. Aside from recruitment, perhaps we can train and upskill your employees, or we can help you understand compensation structures among your competitors to assist with attraction and limit attrition.



Crucial focus on market intelligence to help our clients make data led decisions from growth areas in their sector to where they should place resources or new office locations. We do this by conducting in-depth market research and engaging with our networks globally. As an example, we recently mapped out the EMEA Network Engineer market to assist a service provider in making a Crucial decision on where to build a 100 person NOC. Using our data and recommendations, the client was able to make an informed decision based on this information to allow them to DISRUPT their market and scale at pace safe in the knowledge that the talent pool existed and that their compensation structure was attractive and furthermore, understanding how to retain individuals once they joined.
