About Us

Introduction to Imperium Commodity Search, the Commodity Headhunter

Imperium Commodity Search has been built from the ground up to provide a bespoke partnering service to assist commodities, global markets and shipping firms in hiring the best talent in the market.  With the resources of an agency and the approach of a headhunter, we ensure our candidates are introduced to exceptional clients that share the same beliefs and aspirations as they do.

Built upon a global network and personal relationships with commodity firms internationally, our commodity headhunters have built a reputation for extracting talent that is not only the right professional fit, but the right cultural one too.

We believe in attraction and retention in equal measure.  We operate on a strict framework to ensure we get to know our candidates and clients in a way that ensures the relationships we help create are lasting and beneficial to all involved.

Our consultants operate within their own niche, providing specialist advice to clients and candidates alike.   We set ourselves apart in the introductions that we don’t make and strongly believe in partnering with clients that share our care in the recruitment process.


Our commodity recruitment team have a global network across:

With a 100% placement rate on retained recruitment assignments from our clients; we operate across both physical and derivative markets with a particular appetite for those positions that are tough to fill and require a headhunt/extraction led recruitment approach to secure the best talent for our clients.

We pride ourselves on being able to attract passive candidates, offering them an opportunity that works for them, and a talent offering that exceeds the expectations of our clients over and above what a traditional advertising led recruitment method can provide.  Our team have worked mandates in every corner of the globe and operate a network that enables us to secure the best talent in a time and cost-effective way, ensuring that our quality is never compromised.  We are a commodity headhunter over and above a commodity recruitment agency.

Internally we operate differently – exhausting an expert research team who work closely with a team of talented commodity headhunters to offer a full cycle recruitment solution, always bespoke to the needs of the particular mandate.

We believe there is no “one size fits all” solution in recruitment – that is why our consultants will spend the time to get to know your business, its culture, the needs of the team and its growth plans for the future, so we can ensure that the introductions we make offer not only a solution to the immediate hiring needs of the organisation, but a foundation for growth that enhances the process long after the placement has been made.

Working closely with MET Recruitment London’s other specialist brands, Imperium Commodity Search offer a unique insight into the overall structure and relationships within a business and can consult on a range of specialist projects that many simply are not set up to do.
