Executive Recruitment
& Search Services

NOVA Partners Executive Recruitment has over 20 years of professional experience.

We focus on two primary offerings; Executive Search and Executive Recruitment.  Both complement each other, and are distinctly different models, utilised by clients pending the research or bespoke requirements of the role and confidentiality elements.

NOVA Partners operates in Australia nationally. Through this, we are able to ensure that we can source talent and manage the assessment and evaluation of the right talent. We have a driven, values-based culture, committed to service and results, we enjoy an industry leading placement of over 97% of Search roles over the 25 years.

Executive Search

A key service model for NOVA Partners; we provide in-house research in support of our executive consultants and Partners, ensuring complex roles; technical as well as seniority, receive bespoke research centred sourcing for each specific assignment.

This is combined with extensive networks and ensures we develop and provide our clients a final recommended shortlist of talent that meets their brief and ensures the behavioural and technical elements of the assignment are balanced in our behavioural based interview models. 

The research is in-depth, and we work with clients to ensure we develop ongoing talent management for other potential needs within their organisations, continually reviewing talent across technical, leadership, diversity and skill to be ready for the next assignment engagement.

Executive Recruitment

NOVA Partners manages assignments across the professional levels of organizations, capable of sourcing talent from mid-career roles to more senior talent, utilizing our brand and reputation into the markets we service.

Combining branded campaigns, or remaining offline, we can source talent via our database and network approaches, ensuring a proactive service is provided, and not simply an advertisement or social media dissemination. We are always proactively seeking talent and not awaiting the perfect candidates. In this ever challenging candidate market, we must reach into the sectors to source talent for client needs.

"I have known Michael Crowe professionally for 30 years, and have engaged him to undertake a range of executive and professional search and recruitment roles. On each occasion, the service and outcomes were first class; Michael is driven to be a proactive partner and communicates and adds value in the process. The people he helped source and we hired, have remained within the group. Many were promoted and this validates his quality and care for getting the right fit. Equally, he provides outstanding advice on the wider market and has recommended to myself and others I know, areas to work on in developing our own career. I recommend him to any person seeking a recruitment partner level service model."
