Carlyle Research


As we work within a strictly confidential arena, we do not discuss the Research we have undertaken on your behalf, with anyone but you. Our reputation is everything, and retention of clients is paramount. We operate a satisfaction survey regularly, to ensure we continue to support you in the desired manner.

Carlyle Research conduct retained assignments to methodically investigate your target market place. To provide candidate identification, assessment, and client support for your assigned searches. 

We support you in developing company target lists; identification and verification of candidates details. We also assist in qualifying individuals to your specifications and accurately create a full research report that proves who we have identified and conversed with. We investigate the candidates reporting lines, areas of accountability, along with their responsibilities and achievements. 

Executive Research

We undertake a methodical investigation of correctly identifying individuals, matching them to your retained and agreed target list. We are able to demonstrate to you, everyone we have spoken to, by producing an executive summary, which, in turn you can pass on to your client. We produce a detailed research report for each and every candidate.

Named Approach

You may know the person, but do not wish to compromise yourself, nor your organisation by direct approach. Carlyle Research offer a ‘Named Approach’ service. We speak in confidence and will agree the exact parameters of our conversation with you in advance. In order that there are no hidden agendas later in your discussions with the candidates.

Managed Services

We’ll manage all of those independent researchers and make sure they understand the assignment and can deliver to the project plans you have agreed. Carlyle Research ‘Managed Services’ covers all managed service processes associated with the acquisition of research services, ranging from vendor research management, to specialist, more bespoke research programmes.

Your Research needs will be delivered on time, and with accuracy. Research is a demanding profession, thus our employees are experienced in delivering what you need, when you need it, retaining your total satisfaction.
