Top Leadership Roles & Top Talent:
The two of you should meet
Welcome to Guild Talent:
Executive Search & Leadership Hiring for Venture Backed Companies
How We Work
Guild Talent focuses on leadership hiring (Director, VP, CXO and ‘Head of’ level) across Go-To-Market and G&A functions. The roles we work are often high impact positions within a company that deserve a proper market mapping and research exercise.
We’re not a massive firm, in fact, we’re quite small and quite focused. We know the roles we’re good at and we know the ones we’re not. Each project has multiple sets of eyes on it, weekly pipeline reporting, and an expectation from us that our clients are equally involved in the process.
Startups & Large Orgs
With a collective 35+ years of recruiting experience that spans stealth startups to public companies, if you need to build out your team, regardless of company size, give us a ring. We won’t take on a project we cannot fill or add value towards.
Based on the seniority and specifics of each project, we’ll tailor our billing model to what makes sense. As a small and agile team, we can be flexible with our clients. And if you prefer to test out a candidate before hiring or have a short term project, worry not – we can help.
Our goal is to move the needle. Fast. At the outset of every project, we’re building a targeted candidate list, but that doesn’t mean it’ll take forever. Along with calibration calls, our aim is to have at least 3 candidates in process by the 3rd week.
A big part of success in executive search is about controlling the process. Candidates and Hiring teams are all humans and don’t fit into a box/spec details and circumstances evolve. Having a strong and thorough process allows for controlling the variables as able to drive successful outcomes.
