How a recruitment partner will benefit your firm

Wondering why your PE firm should use a recruitment firm instead of keeping its hiring in-house? Here's what MSH uniquely brings to the table as a partner.

Goal-oriented and kpi-driven

Hedge funds, investment banks, first time funds, private equity firms … you think in numbers, and so do we. The personalized hiring strategy we’ll develop together at the beginning of the recruiting process will include well-defined goals. And after you’ve hired someone? You’ll get access to valuable analytics showing your ROI via our proprietary software, Aeon.

Long-term focus

There are headhunters and recruiters out there who will quickly fill hiring slots … but six months down the road, those same hires are jaded and looking to move on. Not with MSH. You’ll end up with employees who go the distance because they truly fit into your team.

A large existing network

One of the primary benefits of working with a reputable recruitment firm like MSH is the powerful network of high-caliber candidates that we bring with us everywhere we go. We’re talking hundreds of thousands of fully vetted job seekers via our proprietary software, Aeon. Yes, you’ll seriously get access to all of these folks - can’t beat that!

Balance of speed and quality

It really is a balance. If we move too slowly, there will be real damage to your business. If we move too quickly and sacrifice quality, there will be real damage to your business. MSH consistently finds the perfect middle ground so your PE firm benefits from both speed and quality.

Candidates who are fully vetted

We know exactly who we are recommending to you and why. All of MSH’s candidates are fully vetted before you ever lay eyes on them. That’s because we’ve painstakingly selected talent who we believe are a perfect match for all your needs and preferences.

Incentivized recruiters and proven expertise

Sure, you can go the in-house recruiting route - many firms do. But keep in mind that those teams don’t tend to have the specialized knowledge and background in hiring like MSH does. Plus, they aren’t usually incentivized the same way to go out and land top talent. MSH, on the other hand, is specifically structured so the sharks (recruiters) can do what they do best: hunt. This is what gives us our edge.

Frequently asked questions

Why do PE and VC firms use recruiters in the first place?

Firms in the private equity sector frequently hire headhunters and recruitment firms to help them save both time and money. With their specialized knowledge of the job market and PE industry, in addition to their established networks of quality candidates, an executive search firm like MSH can lock down top talent much faster than a PE firm trying to go it alone.

Who partners with MSH?

Organizations who want to hire incredible people.

If this were a dating site, our "type" would be companies that are hungry to level up their team and truly optimize their business objectives. We partner with industry disruptors, dreamers, and innovators for both contingent workforce and full-time hires.

Whether you need singular opportunities, on-demand projects, or completely outsourced partnerships, MSH has your back.

How do I select the best recruitment firm to work with?

It’s imperative that the PE recruitment firm you choose to partner with understands 1) your company, 2) its hiring needs, and 3) the private equity industry. MSH places a big emphasis on fully grasping the essence of its clients’ company culture so it can place talent who will fit right in and want to stay.

Who will be my point of contact at MSH?

Your dedicated client account manager will screen all candidates, coordinate interviews, and help you make the best hiring decisions.

MSH integrates into your team and culture to understand your specific people needs. 

What is PE recruiting?

PE recruiting is the process private equity firms and their recruitment partners follow to source, evaluate, and hire high-quality candidates to fill open positions. In the case of MSH, this involves the development of a customized hiring plan, delivery of a shortlist of qualified talent to the client, and ultimately the successful hiring of candidates who completely fit the bill.

What are the terms of the partnership?

If one-size-fits-all, does it really fit anybody?

Then why would anyone take this approach to hiring?

We sure as hell don't.

MSH customizes each partnership and collaborates with you based on your uniqueneeds. You deserve to love the hires you make.

Nobody talks about high-quality candidates

There are very few processes where you touch this many people with the opportunity to create long lasting relationships.

We all want to work for companies that make us feel like we belong.

That is what high-quality means to me - it’s the opportunity to enter into relationships with people who have your best interest at heart and will support you as part of their team, even after just one day on board!
