Recruitment Solutions

Real Estate

Most managers need to hire a solid team member and view recruitment as a necessary evil as they would rather get on with their day jobs without having their time wasted by viewing irrelevant CVs.

Our recruitment service is effective and delivered by true sector specialists. Employers who work with us immediately notice the difference and we quickly understand their needs. Our proactive consultants often go on to build great long term relationships with our clients and have in some cases hired whole teams.

Consultants at Cobalt have an impressive knowledge of their specialist area, having been attracted to Cobalt either directly from the Real Estate or Finance industries or from other specialist recruitment consultancies. As individuals, we are passionate about the sectors in which we work and about forming lasting, productive relationships; these drivers are highly evident in the way that we approach our work and ultimately the unrivalled success we achieve. 

Please contact your nearest Cobalt office to discuss your recruitment requirements and how we can assist. Alternatively, you can register your vacancy online if you have a job specification to hand.

Our Services

Our niche sector driven approach allows us to recruit at all levels of seniority, through tailored recruitment solutions. Through contingency recruitment, advertised selection and executive search, we can efficiently and effectively meet our clients’ recruitment requirements from entry level through to senior director level.

  • Contingency Recruitment

    A successful contingency campaign depends on a high quality, up to date and relevant database of candidates which can be tapped into instantly. Cobalt has the most up-to-date technology in its database which enables candidates’ careers to be tracked and they are instantly notified of appropriate new requirements. Instructing Cobalt on a contingency basis immediately opens up a network of over 100,000 real estate candidates worldwide.

  • Advertised Selection

    Selection uses the medium of recruitment advertising to find candidates for a wide range of positions. Cobalt’s services include the creative design and placement of appropriate advertisements. We can advertise on a joint branded or anonymous basis.

  • Executive Search

    Cobalt consultants are fully trained in the processes of executive search. This allows them to source both senior executives and those professionals with rare skill sets at all levels that are difficult to attract through advertised and database selection. They are supported by a dedicated in-house research team who map and identify key individuals within specific markets.

  • Temporary, Contract and Interim Recruitment

    We offer interim solutions across the market having consolidated our ability to recruit highly qualified and reliable interim professionals. We recruit interims at all levels of qualification for leading professional services and principal organisations, complementing the work we do on the permanent recruitment side. We are able to offer short term, immediate cover, and longer term rolling contracts, higher level interim, fixed term contracts and temp to perm placements. Find out more.

  • Remuneration and Salary Advice

    Cobalt’s consultants are able to provide supporting advice in other human resource areas such as compensation and benefits. We offer specific salary surveys for both senior executive teams and organisation-wide reviews of professional staff.
