Welcome to Thomas & Dessain International Search and Selection

Thomas & Dessain is a search and selection consultancy that has been in existence since 1997. Our lead office is in Jersey with a presence in Guernsey and London, we operate not only in the classic offshore territories such as the Channel Islands and the Caribbean but also in Switzerland and Hong Kong.


We work towards matching the needs of clients and candidates and placing candidates in their perfect role. Thomas & Dessain specialize in international search and selection, particularly in the sourcing of senior staff in the offshore and financial services industry and in the accountancy and legal professions offshore.


We have a very high success rate in completing assignments to source individuals where the client has a role available for some time due to shortage of skills.


We invest time in talking to our clients to really understand their recruitment needs at both a strategic and operational level. This knowledge often enables us to make helpful suggestions and identify opportunities beyond the immediate requirement.


We work closely with candidates at all stages of their career path; from graduates, junior, middle management and senior level to make the most of any job opportunities.


Our expertise derives from the successful and relevant business careers of the directors and our staff, enabling us to work at all levels with total credibility and confidentiality.


As well as the traditional recruitment of permanent and interim staff, we also offer the following services in the Non-Executive Director market:


  • Board design, effectiveness and remuneration reviews

  • Performance management, including appraisals and psychometric testing

  • Acquisitions

  • One-to-one tutoring and mentoring from our bank of independent senior professionals

  • Strategic advice on issues which involve human capital
