Carter Schwartz is a boutique consultancy providing an innovative range of human capital solutions for the Independent Health, Social Care and Education markets.

Differentiated by knowledge and networks, no other consultancy is as acutely connected with a proposition underpinned by such in-depth sector understanding.

From Fertility to Funeral Care and Nurseries to Adult Learning; for the past two decades our team has successfully partnered major providers, emerging corporates, not-for-profits and the investment community by addressing their people challenges at management and board level with focused talent attraction solutions.

Approach

Approach

Our approach is ruthless simplicity – we listen, we consult, we apply our expertise and formulate an appropriate solution.

The message from our longstanding clients is clear. No longer is the human capital challenge just about hiring new recruits – it’s much broader than that. So we adopt a value-add proposition that is uniquely positioned to tackle traditional recruitment requirements, alongside additional services that meet client need by simply reacting to their wider commercial challenges.

Critical to this is a research capability that underpins everything we do. It’s a continuous process of intelligence gathering that provides the talent landscape across each of our sector niches. In real terms that’s organisational mapping; understanding market motivations; keeping close to management teams and pin-pointing exit strategies.

So ultimately, our intrinsic value really does lie in who and what we know; our knowledge, our networks, our understanding of your business needs in the context of a coherent people strategy – it’s our USP.

Philosophy

Philosophy

We place real emphasis on our own integrity and ethical behaviour. So our philosophy starts with a simple handshake. It represents personal contact; a commitment to clients and candidates to meet in person – to understand a client’s need and culture; to assess a candidate’s skills and fit. A set of values and principles that ensure best practice is never comprised.

Here’s a few key elements that we think really make a difference:

We value our clients – so beyond unrivalled expertise and innovative solutions that source talented people is a strict promise that we never poach from our existing customers.

We value our candidates – so we don’t spray CVs around the market unsolicited; we also ensure all candidates are screened ‘in-person’ to fully understand their skill-set and ambitions in the context of market need before presenting them to our clients.

We value our staff – so our people aren’t focused on easy wins and quick commission. They’re measured and incentivised on delivering the appropriate solution to time, cost and quality.
