Stratus is retained to represent senior level individuals to act on their behalf in negotiating their new employment contracts.  This can be done either on an advisory basis or more often, we represent the individual and engage directly with the new employer.

 

We also represent individuals who are being made redundant or who have been put on consultation to help them exit their company as effectively as possible.

Stratus are market leaders in property and infrastructure consultancy, with an expansive network and strong client relationships that reflect the number of years we have specialised in this field.

 

We collaborate with the rising independent practices through to the international multi disciplinary corporates. We work across all sectors including residential, hotels, commercial, corporate occupier, datacentres, and infrastructure; and whilst we have a stronghold in London, we also regularly take on regional and European positions.

 

With our depth of experience and up to date knowledge of the market and industry we are best placed to advise you on whether a move would help you achieve your career goals, and to put you in touch with the people you need to be talking with.

The residential team keeps on growing. We have filled hundreds of production and commercial roles over the years throughout the UK on a search and contingency basis. Our clients include private developers, RP’s and social housing contractors.

 

No matter what stage of your career you are at, if you work in the residential market and are contemplating a move, get in touch to discuss potential opportunities we may have.

We work with a number of very different clients across the energy sector including: operators (end users), EPC’s and consultants across the UK and overseas. We have a strong and full understanding of niche engineering disciplines including technical safety, human factors, CFD, process engineering and project controls.

 

With many years experience working in these areas we are able to provide a bespoke and detailed service to both clients and candidates. Our biggest asset is our knowledge and the network we can call upon of specialist skilled people in these communities.

Stratus continually delivers exceptional results, across the globe, for employers and candidates. We have recruited management and key technical professionals on many of the world’s most prestigious and challenging construction projects, including transport (rail/metro, roads, ports and airports), mixed-use city (including smart city) developments, buildings and associated infrastructure.

 

With a wealth of international experience and expertise, particularly in the Middle East, Africa, and Asia, we understand our markets. We work closely with our clients, who range from respected specialist consultancies and developers, right through to the largest and best known engineering and construction corporations.

Working in partnership with a wide range of the industry’s leading contractors, we have expertise garnered over two decades to help you with your search. Our aim is to connect you with the best opportunities in the built environment that are most suited to your skills and experience and match your career aspirations.

 

We work with the market leaders in the industry, including top 10 main contractors managing the largest build projects in the UK through to specialist sub-contractors providing shell and core and bespoke façades and high end interiors.

Stratus has always carried out retained searches for a range of clients across numerous sectors including: construction, property, engineering, HR, EfW, law and sales.

 

We have successfully completed a variety of headhunting assignments from specialist senior managers to director, partner and C level roles.

 

The majority of our searches are confidential therefore, we rarely advertise the positions we are working on. If you are at a senior level and potentially considering a change then please feel free to get in touch for an informal discussion.
