Our Services

Fulfilling exceptional leadership roles is our core business. Working together we offer both clients and candidates the benefits of our extensive network, our experienced search consultants and our well established results-driven process. Today our team would be delighted to work with you.


Executive Search and Selection
Executive Search

Executive recruiting is the  corner stone  of our business, operating under our four key principles of success; Trust, Integrity, Partnership and Results, we align the brief with our comprehensive candidate network.


Our highly experienced consultants invest time to understand the detail of the brief combining  informed research, an extensive network and reach to identify, attract and recruit the best possible executive talent for our clients.


Our approach is personal, we develop long and lasting relationships with our clients and we get results.

Advertised Selection

Dalríada is a leading proponent of Advertised Selection.


Combining the best mix of on and off-line options, a well crafted  media campaign maximises exposure to the right audience ensuring that qualified candidates, who may not be identified as part of an Executive Search, are alerted to the opportunity.


Dalríada has an unparalleled track record in the successful completion of many high profile Advertised Assignments for both domestic and international clients.

Interim Management

Engaging an Interim Manager  is an efficient and cost effective solution to bridge short-term management gaps with experienced senior management talent.


The interim management model can be used to address a variety of scenarios including:

    • Organisational change
    • Mergers and Acquisitions
    • New projects and initiatives
    • Validation of newly defined roles
  • Unexpected management gaps
  • Planned Secondment
  • Maternity leave

We carefully select candidates who have a specific combination of experience, talents and soft skills to make an immediate and lasting impact in your organisation. All primary business functions are covered including Human Resources, Finance, Operations, General Management, I.T., Sales & Marketing, etc.

Non-Executive Directors

A robust corporate governance framework is essential to every organisation and is formed at board level. 


Non-Executive Directors bring impartiality and can strengthen a board by offering independent expert counsel and advice. Because they are not heavily involved in the day-to-day running of the company, Non-Executive Directors can see issues in their totality and bring a fresh, diverse and external perspective to board discussions and decision-making, and in doing so create a strong and diverse board.


Dalríada will work with you to identify and appoint Non-Executive Directors with the experience and specialist skills required to add value to your board.

I have had long experience of interviewing the Voluntary, Corporate and Religious Sector; however with the focused, experienced, professional support at Dalríada I don't think we would have been as successful without the help of your organisation.

quotes quotes

Even though I have had long experience of interviewing and the selection process as a member of interview panels, without the help of your organisation I feel we would not have been able to manage the process as well as we did, to ensure that it was open and transparent and that anything that needed to be done was done.
