About Research Partners

Co-workers Natalie Heilling, Managing Director and Heidi Kull, Director, Americas, founded Research Partners in 2005, out of a shared passion to provide a more innovative and cost-effective recruitment service. It was apparent that companies were seeking more control over their recruitment processes in terms of how the service was delivered and at what price.

We have strategically recruited our team. We focused on key locations across the globe, which has been driven by client demand to use a single vendor across multiple locations. As a result, over 50% of our work is supporting clients with global research campaigns.

In an industry where so many broken promises are made by vendors, Research Partners became a true partner and put the client and candidate at the centre of everything we do. We believe in building relationships based on loyalty, respect and trust. As a result, many of our client relationships have lasted well over 10 years. Collaboration and empathy are the glue that binds our team to work progressively and allows us to be truly different in the recruitment space. Our forward-thinking aptitude generates creative innovation and a deep-cutting exploration of the needs of our client base. We work intensively to provide a hands-on, analytical and human approach to executive search, talent mapping, pipelining, employee retention and competitive insight.
