Aruba Executive Search are a firm of Executive Recruiters and has offices in London & Bristol. We were founded in 2009 by Richard Crossman, to deliver superior executive recruitment services to clients in the UK & Europe through an agile, innovative & technology driven Executive Talent Acquisition & Retention (ETAR™) System. This has allowed us to achieve a 100% success record in the delivery of CxO, VP & Director level roles, de-risking the investment for our technology clients in executive search.
We work closely with clients on their senior management and executive recruitment requirements and work with talented high impact candidates looking for executive roles.
As Executive Recruiters, we work with Technology companies that are typically Start-Ups, Scale-Ups, SMEs & Larger Enterprises. Our charter encompasses the provision of cost effective executive recruitment services and solutions and build long-term partnerships with our clients and candidates, establishing ourselves as the Executive Recruiters and partner of choice.
We are not arrogant in our approach, far from it. We are just honest, we take the time to listen, understand and help, and quite simply we do what we say we’ll do and we do it very well.
Aruba Executive Search’s vision is to be the premier and preferred provider of executive search solutions to clients who are typically high growth Technology companies OR companies who, whilst maybe in a different sector, have technology at the core of their business/product/service.
Our Retained Executive Search & Talent Management services are based on providing our clients and candidates “world class” customer service founded on uncompromised integrity and an unwavering commitment to recruitment excellence, through innovative, agile & consultative solutions.
