TS Grale Executive Recruitment


TS Grale was established through values that are consistent in each of our partners: “Pride, Passion and Commitment” This element of our nature has been translated into working practices in support of our company mission, which will ensure:

  • Unlike most executive search firms who delegate responsibility to associates and third parties, the process at TS Grale is fully undertaken by the Partners.
  • We are invested in customer support after the completion process through specialist consultation services, ensuring a focus on retention not just placement.
  • We are committed to personal, honest and open communication with clients and candidates giving them clear advice on the steps that must be taken to maximise success in delivery and continuity.
  • Ultimately we aim for long-term, on-going relationships, in which we continue to fulfill our customers’ needs over and over again.

“At TS Grale we pride ourselves on integrity, clarity and delivery ensuring full transparency
throughout the process knowing that retention and longevity in an appointment is critical to both the company and employee.”
