You Found Us

At Found Us we don’t just complete executive search and selection, we find the very best people and bring them together.

If you’re looking for a new opportunity we’ll find it. If you’re looking for someone to help grow your business, we’ll find them.

If you need career, commercial or business advice we act as consultants to help you build a tailored strategy.

We have successful sat at board level across media owners and agencies, and currently provide director level consultancy services, non-exec advice, or hands on sales direction.

We began Found Us with a vision of creating a different type of consultancy. One where people come first. Where honesty, integrity and understanding define us. We’ve achieved that.

Everything we do is based around the real needs of the people we work with – you. Which is why we don’t use off-the-shelf solutions.

For a start we don’t have recruitment backgrounds. We have hands on experience and considerable industry knowledge at senior levels within the advertising, media and marketing sectors.

We only work with senior and executive clients because we have the expertise, insight and networks for a truly bespoke service.

Get in touch today and benefit from our years of experience, impartial advice and friendly conversation.

Peter stands out a mile from other recruiters because he makes sure that he really understands his candidates and what motivates them before he utilises his excellent connections to find the best possible career move – he’s all about finding a great match for the long term rather than just the quickest and easiest available role. Peter worked really hard on my behalf and communicated fantastically throughout the process so I was never left wondering what was going on. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone looking for the next step in their career.

Peter is a very conscientious, intelligent and emotionally savvy recruiter; he placed me after an extensive search that managed to balance the needs of both the employer and the employee. A great guy and one who you should look to use if you have any recruitment requirements.

Peter Cobley at Found Us was used by Stein IAS to identify a suitable candidate for a very complex role, that of a general manager in our mainland China office. The position is crucial for the continued growth and expansion of our international B2B agency, and the candidate had to fulfil a number of strict criteria before becoming an integral part of the team. We felt Found Us worked hard to identify the correct candidate, using their knowledge of the media business and its people, with a complete understanding of our agency and culture, and importantly applied their own unique hands on approach. We now have great manager in place in our Shanghai office!

Found Us have been extremely precise in their service to us. We are not interested in sifting through endless vague CVs for a position; we want to speak to a very few highly appropriate candidates, the majority of whom we would anticipate being capable of fulfilling the role. This is what we got from Found us; they recently supplied us with the most senior appointment we have ever made and it is working out superbly.
