Acorn’s specialist Executive Search Division is proud to partner the Welsh Sports Association

Acorn’s specialist Executive Search Division deliver a premium, guaranteed service which provides a refined and exhaustive proactive recruitment strategy for clients, who typically retain Acorn to identify either senior, niche or business critical positions that they simply cannot afford to get wrong, for example CEO’s, MDs, Heads of Department etc. It involves thorough market research and competitor mapping and a robust resourcing (head-hunting) process that delivers the best possible shortlist for interview, rather than the best of those who are looking (either actively or passively) for new opportunities.

Acorn’s commercial partnership with the Welsh Sports Association, means that Acorn are able to offer a 25% discount on standard Executive Search rates to member organisations.

Pro Bono NED Offer

As part of the offer, Acorn are also able to provide a ‘pro bono’ service to any WSA member when strengthening their Board with voluntary Non-Executive Directors. This includes providing members with a comprehensive digital marketing campaign and advertising via a number of job boards, as well as cascading opportunities to an exclusive NED portfolio. This means that any member vacancy reaches the widest possible audience of potential applicants.

Traditional Recruitment

Acorn also offers a traditional recruitment agency approach covering all sectors, and, as commercial partners, provide WSA members with a discount of 25% on our usual rates.
