We fully understand businesses’ need for high calibre leaders to facilitate their growth plans, export ambitions and to act as a brand ambassador for market-leading products and services.

"On various occasions we found the best person for the job and this wouldn’t have been possible without 4c’s knowledge and expertise, and their reach outside of Northern Ireland."

4c Executive was launched in 2013 and quickly established ourselves as the leading provider of true executive search services in Northern Ireland, Great Britain and further afield.

"4c went the extra mile to understand our company and our values before embarking on the process, and this strategic approach led to them presenting us with some fantastic candidates who would otherwise never have been on our radar. "


The Fastest Growing Search Firm

4c has successfully filled over 300 roles since our inception in October 2013, having worked with over 100 Northern Ireland-based clients.

Fill Rate

Our approach to search has resulted in us filling 90% of all roles, a statistic we are immensely proud of.

Search Success

Our methodology, which places true search at the heart of it and does not rely on who we know or an outdated database, has proven to be instrumental in our success as the majority of the roles we have filled. 73% have been as a result of search activity and making direct approaches to individuals where there is no prior relationship or connection.

Repeat Business

4c is very encouraged that 39.3% of the roles that we have filled have come from repeat business, with 60.7% of our roles coming from new clients. This reinforces the fact that, in spite of our specialism in executive level positions, our excellent service and unique method allows us to build a lasting and mutually beneficial relationship with our clients.

Local Knowledge, Global Reach

Due to our research-driven approach, 4c is not restricted by any geographical boundaries and, as such, we are immensely proud of the fact that we have attracted talented expats back to Northern Ireland that have been identified by our researchers. Likewise, we have been able to approach individuals from across the globe that have no previous link to NI, and have had success in attracting them to our region for niche and senior roles, most recently from Columbia, Canada and Singapore.
