Our evidenced expertise has been helping businesses build winning teams for over 20 years

Here at FFP International Search, we’ve been providing innovative and dynamic resourcing and recruitment solutions across the technology industry since 2000. During that time our tried and trusted search and selection process has led to the successful recruitment of literally hundreds of people, for businesses in the UK, EMEA and North America.

We’ve partnered with a diverse range of clients along the way too - from blue-chip vendors to innovative start-ups within the IT Services, Software/Cloud, Telecoms and Fintech Sectors. However, our clients have one thing in common - they don’t compromise when hiring each and every one of the people they hire needs to be ‘Fit For Purpose’ for today and able to scale for the future.


No matter how complex your resourcing needs, we’re ideally placed to help

Whether you need a permanent member of staff or someone on an Interim basis, our broad service portfolio enables us to provide tailored resourcing solutions, using single or multi-fed candidate generation initiatives and processes.

We pride ourselves in providing choice to our clients too. We ensure that all shortlisted candidates are not only fully capable to do the job, but want to do it. How? By using our expertise and insight gathered over two decades, we assess, analyse and search harder in order to drive a thorough and dynamic recruitment process that delivers the specific, relevant people and skills your business needs – both for today and the future.

We provide effective recruitment solutions on time and within budget

We’re all about communication between professionals, adding value, not cost and time. What’s more, our team structure enables us to ensure that all communication, whether candidate or client, is delivered by a professional with specific expertise and knowledge. Put simply, we’re proud, committed individuals who believe in only delivering suitably qualified and motivated candidate shortlists, enabling fast and effective hiring, turning opportunity into revenue and profit for your business.

Work with us, and you’ll soon discover that our added value comes from many years of collective thought leadership and experience within Executive Search and Selection, consisting of proven ‘process centric’ delivery methods, a razor-sharp focus, swift execution, efficient communication and transparent reporting.

Alistair Macaulay

Business Development Lead

Having worked in the industry for nearly 30 years, Alistair has an accurate, direct and open approach that enables him to really engage with new clients. Everyone that’s worked with him knows that when he diarises a call it always happens. He’s based in France most of the time but spends the majority of his working life talking to people either on the phone or over video – something that’s become more the norm in the last couple of years. Away from work, he enjoys a lovely life in France with his wife and many pets.

Laura Birkinshaw

Project Delivery Consultant

Laura decided to go into headhunting after working in Management Consulting for many years. Prior to consulting in Organisation Design and Operating Model re-design, she had a successful global career in the automotive industry. She has a strong attention to detail and a highly professional approach to work. She is absolutely dedicated to helping people into companies that they really fit with – “it is not about making a placement; it’s about building companies and careers at the same time.”
Outside of work, Laura is never bored, always finding something to keep her active, whether inside or outside the home. Skiing is her preferred way to unwind when she is able to get away. She is also currently trying to add Welsh to her other 3 foreign languages, ahead of the weddings of two of her children to partners from Wales.

Are you ‘Fit For Purpose’? Could you make a real difference to our team?

We may have been around a while, but we’re not resting on our laurels. At FFP search international we’re still very much driven for success and interested in hearing from good like-minded individuals. We like to nurture talent by developing and promoting internally too, as we strongly believe in guiding our people to deliver outcomes, helping to focus on outputs, not inputs. We’ve also operated a flexible working option for many years and continue to celebrate diversity and doing things differently. It all adds up to a unique opportunity for bright and ambitious recruiters. So, if your ambitions and values match ours, get in touch.
