EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE

We are highly analytical; we persist where others give up; we become more involved where others delegate; and we maintain a singular focus on delivering results.

Situational Search

Functional and sector expertise is no longer enough. Essenta believes that an executive’s experience leading a business through a relevant or parallel situation, be it a turnaround, growth or transformation, is an even more critical factor in determining their success. Our search ethos and approach are designed with our clients’ business situations at the core.

OUR VALUES

The way we work with clients and with one another sets us apart.

AMBITIOUS

We are energetic and result-oriented, but flexible based on our clients’ needs.

RESILIENT

We are tenacious. We never give up and aim to learn from every assignment.

AUTHENTIC

We are genuine. Clients count on our candid advice and principled approach.

PROGRESSIVE

We think through problems differently, always with an eye towards innovation.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS THINK

I have known and worked with some of the Essenta team for many years. They recently handled a senior finance search for me and the outcome was excellent. The quality of all the candidates I met was very high, I realistically could have hired 2 or 3 of them for the role. The help and advice I had from the team to land the top candidate was first class.
