Capstone Hill Search Ltd is a specialist search and selection consultancy, founded and led by Public Relations and recruitment industry experts. Our belief is that the public relations and communications industry is highly specialised and requires significant industry knowledge and contacts in order to be supported efficiently in respect of search and selection.
Equally as digital has rapidly added to, and altered traditional communications channels, so too have barriers been diminished to a globalised career marketplace. Increasingly we see clients and candidates alike looking beyond borders to fulfill talent demands and career ambitions. Consequently we continue to grow our international network and broaden our market presence in order to secure the best available talent and best available opportunities regardless of geographic boundaries.
Our key focus is to deliver outstanding service, expertise and insights to both candidate and client throughout the entire hiring process and beyond. It is important to us that we maintain and develop successful long-term working relationships in order to assist professionals with career progression and clients with the evolution of their business.
