What Hunted Says

When you think of a Global Executive Search Firm, trendy Shoreditch offices and casual attire don't normally spring to mind. Sartre Group offer you all the prestige of executive search with no "stuffiness" in sight. They are a self motivated bunch who all work hard without the pressure of call times or aggressive targets. 60% of their clients are located in North America so Manhattan... here they come! Keep you eyes peeled for several new office announcements in the pipeline, Sartre Group are moving and shaking.

Rafting with Sartre!!


Founded in April 2013, Sartre has established itself as one of the most reputable search firms in our core markets (Quantitative Finance, Core Technology, Big Data, Compliance & Legal). With year-on-year growth in turnover, there is now a great platform for ambitious, like-minded people to join us on our journey. Around 30-40% of our business is secured via retained mandates with small to medium sized companies. At Sartre we take a truly global approach to recruitment, and all of our employees are exposed to global mandates. Currently 60% of our clients are located in North America, 20% in London and Europe and the remaining 20% across the APAC region. Our approach to recruitment is underpinned by two key factors, quality and delivery. We truly believe in offering the highest level of service to our clients and candidates and aim to build deep rooted relationships that allow us to become a genuine strategic partner.

From holiday & lunch clubs to drinks after work, we endeavor to incentivize our staff at all times.
