ABOUT US

About Mercury Hampton

Mercury Hampton was founded to create a workplace that not only strongly focuses on culture, teamwork, and happiness, but also on providing a service that saves our clients time and money while improving their workforce – in other words, the complete antithesis of what recruitment is perceived to be.

WHY MERCURY HAMPTON?

We are an international executive search and strategic consultancy that’s present in 14 key talent markets around the globe; supporting blue-chips, privately owned and private equity backed businesses across a multitude of industries.  

Our headquarters is in the Northwest of England, and we have offices in London and Austin, Texas, curating a worldwide talent pool. Wherever your ideal candidates reside, we’ll either know or find them.

We’ll make an impact

Executive search and selection, contract and interim management, coupled with detailed business assessment diagnostics and high-performance coaching programmes. 

We are one of very few businesses that offer digital transformation services relating to resourcing, recruitment and company performance. All as a turnkey package. 

We aim to assist business leaders with people and performance challenges; this could relate to recruitment, staff retention, cultural alignment or lack of performance within a team. We have a solution.

We bring depth and certainty to selection

Qualifications and experience may be a reasonable indication of suitability, but they overlook one vitally important thing. We’re all human, with our own attitudes, desires and life plans.

We’ll explore how qualified candidates align with your company culture, using an array of psychometric testing, video assessment, competency questioning and behavioural reporting tools, supported by our IQ online platform.

Via your IQ portal, you can access, analyse, and share these insights, along with our detailed recommendations. Check progress, access references and collaborate with your colleagues.

Our approach averages 96% retention rates and yes, it’s industry award-winning.

OUR CULTURE

Our culture is really important to us. We believe that berating people all day long, being completely inflexible, and setting unrealistic targets gets you nowhere. We don’t think it’s unreasonable for people to ask for a work environment where they don’t hate every second of being there.

By having a culture that promotes well-being, progression, and positive mental health, you create a fantastic atmosphere for all, and that goes for every single member of the team.
