Stanford Search

Stanford Search seeks to disrupt the 'search' paradigm - focusing on expeditious, slick client delivery that provides efficient hiring solutions to clients. We work across three core front office verticals: • Private Equity • Investment Banking • Alternative Investments

Commission and Rewards

Our commission structure is competitive, transparent and paid monthly. Our threshold is £10,000 (with an average fee of £20,000 per placement) and commission is 30% of billings above this figure. We have regular team building and rewards events that vary in nature from fantastic trips abroad, dinners at exclusive restaurants and days out of the office.

Culture

Stanford Search - due to our current size - is nimble, agile and able to utilise a different but cohesive approach in engaging with our relevant markets. As a result of joining at this stage in our life cycle there is huge scope for progression, heightened exposure on projects and wide-ranging business impact - your voice will be heard and your opinion valued. Every day we engage with senior stakeholders at some of the most reputable investment banks and private equity funds globally. This allows us to be expert in our markets and advise on hiring and scaling strategies at senior levels.

Founder - Jake Tapsell

Jake graduated from the University of Exeter with an LLB degree. Jake joined Michael Page on their graduate scheme and was a top performer and quickly understood recruitment was lucrative and an opportunity to be highly commercial. Jake latterly joined a boutique executive search firm focused on investment banking and alternative investments, progressing very quickly through the business from Associate to Director - becoming the youngest such individual in the the history of the business. During this period he grew a successful team and won numerous long-standing client relationships with his constantly changing ways of engaging with candidates and clients that differentiated his approach. Jake most recently worked in New York City, where he plans to open an office in the not too distant future with Stanford Search, before launching Stanford Search.

Offices

Our offices are based in the heart of Chelsea - just off of the Kings Road and easy to get to from any part of London. There are a number of amazing restaurants nearby to take clients to for breakfast and lunch.

BVCA

We pride ourselves on being thought leaders - able to engage with senior stakeholders and candidates on relevant market matters. To this end, we are a member of the BVCA (British Venture Capital Association), one of only a handful of search firms able to do so. This allows us to meet and engage with industry professionals at regular drinks, networking and themed events.
