Rayman Weiss work for offshore clients on complex international searches. One of the reasons why these searches can be difficult is because, for example, in Bermuda and the BVI the populations are only 63,000 and 30,000 respectively. This means that it is not always easy to find qualified talent locally and one has to look further afield for suitable candidates. When working on such assignments, we use a combination of conventional recruitment methods such as headhunting (direct sourcing), actively seeking referrals from our network, speaking with our HR contacts as well as sometimes collaborating with our overseas recruitment partners.
As an example, on one occasion we successfully delivered on a search that our client was finding difficult to fill itself. In this case Rayman Weiss decided to extend the search from looking for candidates in Bermuda and the UK to also searching in Canada and found a suitable Risk professional working there. He was successfully placed into our client Catalina Reinsurance based in Bermuda. This was quite an international search as our client contact was in Switzerland and with us in the UK. We are passionate about our work and obsessive about finding the best available talent wherever that may be!
Rayman Weiss offers practical and realistic solutions. Recently, we were working on a search assignment to find a Counsel for the local law firm in Bermuda. Our client was looking for a litigator with 7+ years of post qualification experience (PQE).
The client had not thought of considering experienced Barristers as they thought this might not be achievable from a budget perspective. However, we still looked for litigators in private practice and at the Bar, at all levels and across the UK and found two 20+PQE practising Barristers, one in London and the other in Manchester. When we presented our shortlist it became clear to our client that both of these individuals were by far the best candidates and so our client proceeded to make an offer to one of these two candidates.
Interestingly, our successful candidate was not on the market when we approached him and further had never even contemplated a move to Bermuda! He is now happily settled in Bermuda. It gives us great pleasure that our candidates are enjoying their new lives overseas!
