The difference

Aston Carter believes there are two factors which differentiate it from its competitors:

The employees - It hires the very best candidates in the market, trains them to a high level in the relevant industry, motivates them in a range of different ways, not merely financially and allows them to develop the career path that best suits them. Aston Carter does not believe in a one size fits all approach to personal development.

The pro-active methods - The company boasts an impressive client list. Consultants do not spend their time randomly cold-calling managers; instead, relationships with clients are more akin to a partnership. This state has been achieved by focussing consultants' efforts on finding the best talent in the market, quite simply, headhunting. Aston Carter does not wait for the applicants to apply, preferring instead to target the passive job seeker on behalf of the client.
